Writing My Book Blurb…

My novel is now in the hands of my second beta-reader. While I’m taking another step away from the manuscript I’ve decided it’s time to start working on the book blurb/description.

Which has been a lot harder than I thought.

I started a couple weeks ago, and my first attempt was shared with a private Facebook group for feedback. I got a lot of construtive criticism and suggestions. I’ve been tweaking quite a bit since, and here’s what I’ve come up with:

Nick Forrester thought he was going to spend the rest of his life with his longtime girlfriend—until he proposes. Instead of engaged, he winds up humiliated and alone. He only realizes he’s ready to stop licking his wounds and start dating again when he meets Alli Conwell, a socially awkward 19-year-old Starbucks barista who might just be the next Taylor Swift.

Alli moved to Boston to make a name for herself on the local music scene. She’s ambitious, talented and determined to succeed on her own terms. But Nick soon learns that Alli has a mysterious side as well, and she’s strangely secretive about her life before moving to the city. As their relationship blossoms, so do tensions created by the past she’s trying to hide and the past he’s trying to forget. Will their secrets bring them closer together or tear them apart?

So, what do you think?

[NOTE: Blurb has been updated to reflect suggestions my from my first beta-reader and other tweaks.]
