Developing a blurb for The Supermodel’s Best Friend

Within a month, my next book will be available to buy on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and other outlets.

I’m working on a blurb to attract readers. Such as, I hope, yourself. (*waving*)((*on knees*))

Here’s what I posted on Kindleboards today (along with other writers giving heads-up about their upcoming releases):

I’ve got a new romantic comedy coming out in a few weeks. The working title was The Supermodel’s Short Redheaded Best Friend and the Billionaire’s College Dropout Buddy, but I think I’m going with the more manageable The Supermodel’s Best Friend. It’s a love story between two interesting characters who might have been stuck in a supporting role in, say, Harlequin Presents. With me at the wheel, Lucy and Miles get all the fun, hot, lovin’ action. The billionaire and the supermodel are in the background. Their luxurious destination wedding at an eco-resort in Northern California provides the colorful, mahem-friendly backdrop. There is a zip line through the redwoods, lots of recreational nudity, and

third base under a wedding cake.

Obviously, I expect the Booker. But I’ll settle for thousands of downloads at $2.99.

October!

Still working on the cover. Past life as graphic designer coming in handy, though I’m not sure if I want to go full-Chicklit or something new.

As soon as I have some working sample covers, I’ll post them here.

p.s. Spoiler involved a wedding cake and third base.

You reviewed MY book? Oh, thank you!

This morning I received a wonderful surprise: a glowing review of my hot contemporary romance Quick Study at a new blog, A Romance of the Body. Author has begun a Monday Review contest for readers and writers to enter a drawing for the book she reviews that Monday. She chose my book, loved it, and notified me this morning.

The erotic scenes are well done, and Galway builds the tension between the characters by crafting various obstacles – both internal and external – leaving the reader with a strong understanding of what each character is thinking without overwhelming the prose with too much “in the head” time. She shows and she tells – and the balance is good, hot, wet and satisfying.

By the end of the book I wandered out into the living room to find my husband playing Uru, three happy kids, and a completely destroyed living room. Small price to pay for an enjoyable read. This is Galway’s first book and, I hope, not her last.

I’m sorry about the living room and the Uru, but this surprise review really made my day. Thanks for letting me indulge in a squee.

Here’s the rest of her giveaway info:

That’s it! One winner will be randomly chosen to receive a copy of the book – I’ll use the Kindle book gift program to do it, so make sure you either have a Kindle or that you’ve downloaded the Kindle free app to read books on your PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android or Blackberry.

Good luck! Winner will be announced here on Friday, March 25!

 

Thanks to Harper Alibeck, and I hope whomever wins the copy of Quick Study enjoys it.
