Mateer, a tough Badari enforcer, now a rebel, is captured while infiltrating the lab to help his pack bring it down. September 4. August I try to catch up on ones I missed in recent months. I never have. That would be an impossible task for any human! I assemble my list by hand every week based on various informal inputs, and I do curate the list to some extent….
Scout ships have minimal weaponry and next to no shields.
What happened to the other guy? Is he out there still? Died after the crash from his injuries the Khagrish told me. I was thrown clear or else he carried me—I was injured in the initial attack, out in space.
When I came to, I was already here in the lab, getting medical treatment. If you follow my blog, you know I do a weekly report on New Releases in my three favorite genres — scifi romance, fantasy romance and paranormal romance. I typically have books each week. I only have so much time and my primary priority is writing my own books! Gotta pay the rent and buy cat food for Jake the Cat…and I trust the quality of books by authors well known to me in those genres.
But especially if an author is new-to-me, or has no reviews yet, or has a couple of iffy reviews…. But my main tool is the blurb the author or publisher has provided. I used to have the wonderful Cathryn Cade do mine, when she was the Blurb Queen and since she stopped providing that service, I try to model my blurbs on what she did. This approach seems to work for me. When doing my new releases post I see everything from literally no blurb at all what???!
70kgs lighter: How Veronica saved her own life
Yes, really, there are some out there to a sentence or two, to the quick paragraphs approach I use, to lengthy lengthy blurbs that try to give every plot point, to excerpts from the book standing in as blurb. I kinda ruthlessly truncate the overly lengthy blurbs, frankly. Reminder: This is all my opinion so your mileage may vary, as we authors say BUT I do see a ton of blurbs every week. Harry rides along. Shaking my head in sorrow for lost opportunities.
Okay, maybe your loyal readers will snap this up.

But what a missed opportunity to have the hundreds of people who kindly come and view my new releases report every week at least consider your series, all for the want of a little more information to intrigue them. Another thing to watch out for is having typos, misspellings or editing issues in your blurb. After the cover, your blurb is your most important tool to get your book into the hands of the readers or onto their ebook readers so even if you loathe writing blurbs and there are still people who write them for a fee out there by the way , be sure you have a nicely polished not-too-long, not-too-short piece of prose to make us highly intrigued and need to know more!
