For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been working on blurbs and tag lines. I’ve written some for non-existent stories and for stories that I’ve written and a few for other people’s stories. Blurbs, blurbs, blurbs. If you don’t have a good one, why would anyone even click on the book?
Imagine my surprise when I added all of the words to my overall word count and discovered that I’d passed 365k.
*bounces off the walls*
Woo! I hit 365k! Technically 366,021, but still; woo!
And now that I’ve hit 365k I can celebrate… by starting over from scratch tomorrow.
It’s going to be fun. I can’t wait 🙂
Here are amongst some of the great blurbs and tag lines I came up with. They don’t have any stories behind them but I liked how they sounded.
Magic. Danger. Coffee.
Jason’s kissed a lot of men over the years. He never felt anything like he did when he kissed his hated brother’s friend, Trevor.
Years ago I dreamed I was a powerful mage. I had dangerous friends, mysterious enemies, and a familiar that could make a great cup of coffee. The dreams are back… and this time they’re happening in the real world.
When it comes to love, they say the first cut is the deepest. They left out the part where the second one doesn’t feel any better either.
They say you learn who you are in the dark. Apparently you can also find out some interesting things during a zombie apocalypse.
Boy meets girl. They discover they make better friends than lovers. Girl introduces boy to her brother.
After surviving a mysterious attack, Morgan is thrown into a secret magical world where one side wants world domination and the other is the bad guys.
They say that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. If that was true, then not only is Elliot my best friend, it’s surprising we’re not sleeping together.
Max has hated Elliot since the other man was made editor-in-chief of their college newspaper instead of him. Fast forward fifteen years later, where the two smile politely at one another while always keeping a look out for the other’s weaknesses.
However Max feels about Elliot, it’s nothing compared to what he feels for Conner, the man who destroyed Max’s former newspaper. The man who’s now running for mayor. The man who’s also Elliot’s former lover.
They say one should keep one’s friends close and their enemies closer. Max is about to test that.
