I’ll be the first to admit, I really don’t like writing book blurbs. I don’t know why. I’m dramatic and enjoy writing, but when it comes to writing basically a dramatic preview of the novel, I just have no idea what to do. I do a lot of staring. Lots of hitting the backspace. You’d think, since I was the one who wrote the book, I’d be able to actually write a description of the book.
You’d be wrong.
Anyway, since a book actually needs a back cover blurb, I wrote one. Huzzah!
Death is not the end.
In 1859, eighteen-year-old Adelaide Randolph has a secret: she’s a member of The Secret Six: six women who hunt errant spirits in their hometown of Harpers Ferry, Virginia. They are the daughters of dead mothers—the last line of defense protecting the bustling town from the dead. Adelaide is focused. She’s determined.
And then she meets Thomas.
Thomas Cooper is an armory worker. He’s a scoundrel. He drinks too much, he’s vulgar and rough: and he wants her. It’s too easy to fall in love with him and, suddenly, Adelaide would rather have trysts with him than focus on slaying specters. But when John Brown raids the Ferry, hell bent on starting a slave uprising, everything starts to fall apart.
A creature, a dark shadow man, is stalking her. As the Civil War rages towards Harpers Ferry, Adelaide is forced make a decision that could change everything: can she sacrifice a generation of men in order to save one?
The scourge is coming. And this time, she’s not sure she can stop it.
In other news, I’ve got a nifty new cover banner for my Facebook Fan Page. Not a follower? Click here. Here’s a preview: I’m totally stoked!
And, yeah, still haven’t blogged about my trip to the Caribbean. I’m getting there. This week was filled with panicked, last minute updates to Haunt and getting it off to the formatter. The box set, Paranormal After Dark, will be released on February 14. It’s me and 19 of my author friends. Don’t miss it.
I signed up for my second 5K race for 2016! Woot woot! There’s a couple others I’m just waiting for registration to open so I can get signed up. Also: Western Pennsylvania friends: my first local book signing is already set. Stay tuned for more info!
Other than this, I’ve done nothing of note this week, other than fight off a cold. I think I sprained my boob working out with weights the other night, so that was fun. Way to be a team player, Left Boob.
