Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
This month's optional question:
What's harder to do, coming up with your book title or writing the blurb?
A few years ago, I would have said titles. Now, I know better, although that could change at any moment.
I write romantic suspense and I write in series. Once I landed on the idea of using a repetitive phrase for the title, it became so much easier. The last word in the title points to the theme of the book.
- Reaching For Normal
- Reaching For Risks
- Reaching For Everything
- Reaching For Balance
- Reaching For Christmas
- Reaching For Trust
- Reaching For Roots
- Reaching For Family
- Reaching For Home
My 2nd series will release next year and I'm using the same idea with a different phrase
Blurbs on the other hand can drive me batty. I've now worked up a pattern that helps...sort of
- Tagline (1 sentence)
- intro FMC and her problem (2 or 3 sentences)
- intro MMC and his problem (2 or 3 sentences)
- tie them together & give the stakes (1 or 2 sentences)
