Book Blurb Friday #1
Woo-hoo! Book Blurb Friday at last! This is BBF’s maiden voyage and I am:
1. Hoping that. . .I didn’t screw up the Mr. Linky widget. My technical expertise is 0 on a scale of 1-10. You’ve been warned.
2. Hoping that. . .You take the ideas from your book blurbs and turn them into bestselling novels. (No point dreaming if we don’t dream big, right?)
3. Hoping that. . .Everyone has as much fun writing their blurb as I did. I’m excited to read the other blurbs!
Now, without further ado . . . .my first ever BBF offering, 150 words or less to entice you to read:
**Book Title: The Gateway
Eyes are the Gateway to the soul. . .Eve Bannon has a rare gift. Born a Gateway Empath, her eyes look into yours and see what the world cannot. Your very soul. . .A valuable asset to America’s top security agencies, Eve works covertly, using eye contact alone to assess a subject’s threat potential.Cain Devlin is a technological genius. He is a solitary and enigmatic man with a secret so volatile it can never be shared.During a chance encounter, Eve’s eyes meet Cain’s. The impact of his true self chills her to her core. But she sees something else, too; and as she struggles to understand it she must determine if his life’s purpose is so evil it must be stopped, or so sacred it cannot fail. Was he sent to lead mankind to Heaven, or through the Gateway to Hell? (word count 145)
** FYI – I did not count the book’s title as part of the blurb.
So what do you think? Would you buy the book? My first draft of this blurb was twice as long and I had a tough time cutting it down to size. I’m hoping I get better as I go along!
