blurberific

My little novella has been sold to Samhain Publishing, and I couldn’t be happier. I did a little acceptance booty dance when I got the letter, *squee!*’d, and promptly told ever single person I know what happened, including my Mum.

I’ve signed contracts and written bios before. That was less of a big deal than the blurb.

Oh, that blurb.

I feel like the baby tossed into the river to teach her to swim. I’m swimming, but I feel more than a little out of my depth. Distilling 30,000 words into so few words was hard, and I’m 100% sure that it’ll get ripped to shreds and eaten for breakfast by the magical blurb editor.

I’m okay with this. My blurb kinda sucked, and I want my book to… not suck.

Still, it was a good experience overall. I feel like I learned something, and hopefully next time around won’t be so painful.
