Hi all, first post from me, I hope this is acceptable <3.

Here's a challenge for you all:

Write/post a pretend blurb for one of your novel projects.

Don't say too little, don't say too much, make it interesting, make me want to read your book and do it in say... less than 150 words! 200 if you're REALLY struggling, but try to challenge yourself! Can't just be in dot points or shorthand, pretend you're sending this off to your publisher to have it printed on the back of your soon-to-be-published novel!

I'm running late for work but I'll post mine when I get home tonight

Happy Writing, all :D

(P.S. Mods - I'm not sure what to tag this under and it won't let me tag it myself.)

Killing with a knife, for me, was better. I enjoyed looking at my victim’s faces as they would take those last, feeble breaths of airCollapse )
