Hi everyone! Sorry I’ve been absent for so long. Truth be told, my laptop had a problem and I was without it for nearly twenty days. Yeah, I had my mobile and I tried to stay in touch through that… but let me tell you I just can’t do that. It drove me crazy.
But I’m back and just in time for – guess what! – Give in to the Feeling first bookversary!!!!!!
Can you imagine it’s already a year since my baby went into the world? It’s been a rollercoaster of a year (and not just because of the book…), it was exciting at times and – I won’t hide it – very disappointing at others, but I still want to celebrate this little milestone with you. So, just for today, grab Give in to the Feeling for FREE. And when you read it, just spare two minutes for me and let me know what you thought about it. Really anything, good and bad, I’d love to hear it. And if you feel like writing a review, you’ll make me one happy author.
You know? I think I’d should do something to celebrate by bookversary, something that will refresh my darling book. So, since I truly hate my current blurb, why not write a new one? Maybe because I suck at writing blurb? Well… you have a point. But maybe you fell like giving me an hand at this? I’d appreciate your opinion, really I would.
Here’s my new blurb (well, my working new blurb). What do you think?
GIVE IN TO THE FEELING
When Susie arrived from China two years ago, her life unexpectedly changed radically. Simon gave her everything she once barely dared to dream of: a lush carefree life, the New Woman’s freedom to dance, dress daringly and behave as she pleases.
Susie never imagined she would one day want even more, until one night she meets Blood in Simon’s speakeasy and he offers her a dance and his value for her feelings and thoughts.
But she’s still Simon’s woman and he won’t allow her to forget it.
As she fights off her love for Blood, Susie realises the life Simon has given her is just an illusion, but it’s still everything she has and she owns it to him. In the clash between the two men’s personalities, the veil of reality falls and Susie can see right into the spirit world, where not just her heart, but her very soul is at stack. Then she has to choose whether what she really wants is Simon’s safe comfortable golden cage or Blood’s unknown intangible freedom.
I’m undecided about the second half most of all. I can’t decide whether I want to include a reference to the speculative nature of the story or not. On the one hand, I think it’s fair that the reader knows there is a speculative twist, because many readers would gladly read a historical novel, but not a fantasy one. But on the other hand, hard as I try, I can’t seem to be able to include that aspect of the story and not make a mess of the blurb.
Tell, me, tell me everything you think!
