Ghostly Interlude Blurb and Other Important Stuff

Here I thought I would have problems posting on Friday for lack of information. Instead I get information overload!

First off, My Sunny Vampire is on sale! E-books are 99 cents during February. You can find all the buy links HERE.

FYI: the digital version of Ghostly Liaison is still for sale at 99 cents. Such bargains!

I entered A Vampire Wedding in the Judge a Book by Its Cover contest (paranormal category) and it is now up for reader votes (click HERE to start). So, if you have some spare time and are interested, I wouldn’t mind you giving my cover some stars (like, maybe, five??). Of course, don’t let me stop you from voting for other covers. Heck, you might find something interesting!

I wasn’t sure if I should enter the contest, but I really do LOVE that cover. Hopefully other people do, too. I wouldn’t mind finally winning a contest!

As promised on Wednesday, here’s the blurb I came up for Ghostly Interlude (book 2 in the Ghostly Encounter series):

Maggie Russell is a horror writer who works for lawyers to pay the bills. But she gets the scare of her life when she wakes up in a strange cafĂ© without any idea of how she got there. She’s starting to think her sleep walking is getting out of hand.

Dean Parker is a private investigator whose business is next door to the lawyers. Ever since Maggie started working there he’d been eyeing the pretty brunette from afar. He’d rather not explain how he can see and communicate with ghosts. Or the fact he should never have been born.

When Maggie suspects her sleep problems could be caused by her sue-crazy, money-grubbing cousin, Dean steps in to help. Instead of finding evidence pointing to the cousin, Dean discovers something even worse: a ghost is living with Maggie and appears another may be possessing her.

As much as Dean despises ghosts, he’s determined to help Maggie rid her home of the pest. He just never figured that Maggie might actually find an interest in him, too. But keeping his distance is no longer an option. If he fails, Maggie could very well be possessed forever.

Does it sound intriguing? Granted, if you’re not into paranormal romance, it probably won’t do a thing for you. And if it does…Yay!

So… Watching any football this weekend? Or will you be too busy voting for covers? Hee hee.

Happy Friday!

Possession - interesting!
I'll be watching. I've no dog in the fight and I'm just hoping for a good game.
Off to vote now.

If I'm smart, I'll spend the weekend organizing my taxes. If I'm smart AND productive, I'll spend the weekend organizing my taxes and working on my writing projects, which have kind of fallen by the wayside this week. Good luck in the contest, and have a good weekend! Hope the hubs is doing well!

There's football this weekend?

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

I voted

to me, that's more a synopsis than a blurb

I would never read past the first 70 words or so if you haven't already hooked me, and your first para didn't hook me.

Alex - We'll be watching, too. After my son's birthday dinner, which will be early.

Jeff - Taxes? Ugh. I don't want to think about taxes.

Ivy - Hahahahaha!

Jennette Marie Powell said...

That blurb sounds good!

Not interested in the football. Like Jeff, I'll probably be working on taxes - ugh.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Mac - Thanks for the vote. And I totally get the 70-word thing.

Jennette - I don't even have everything to do my taxes yet. Not that I'd do them this weekend... :)

Maria Zannini said...

I generally ask authors to limit their back cover blurbs to no more than 100 words. Any more than that and it looks awkward on the page.

I'm sending you an email with a revision that might help.

I'll pop over to the contest in the meantime. :)

Maria - Got your e-mail. Thanks!!
