Blurb Gratitude

Leave a comment

I wrote a whole book but I am seemingly incapable of writing 200 words that will make people want to read it. I tried and tried but it was like banging my head against the wall. Or against the keyboard. Trying to sum up and make Ever Near sound fantastic was Ever impossible.

Then, one of the editors at Red Adept wrote the blurb for me. She made my book sound phenomenal with a few simple taps on the keyboard. I already loved this particular editor because she’s one of the people who recommended that Red Adept publish Ever Near. In fact, she’s like one of my favorite people in the whole world even though I’ve never met her. And now, I’m an even bigger fan of hers because she saved me from the head banging illustrated above.

This wise woman assured me that most authors have trouble writing their own blurbs. This did make me feel slightly better. And all’s well that ends well, right?  I’ll be posting my blurb soon. And if you like mysteries, check out my editors books with this link.
