I was inspired by the LGBTQIA+ Pride month to release a book of short stories that had some of the colors of the rainbow on its cover and a sweet lesbian/gay romance in one of the stories.
The stories are inspired by random words and phrases floating around in the stratosphere. There’s something for everyone – Red has a bit of dark suspense; Blue is a story with an element of romantic intrigue; while Pink is a soft, sweet suspenseful romance.
When I’m book hunting and I find an intriguing title, I’ll definitely look at the cover.
Irresistible? All right, so then I’ll read the blurb.
The few words written on the back of the book will either convince me to buy/borrow it, or will compel me to return it to the shelf.
That’s how important a blurb is.
It has the onerous responsibility – now that the title and the cover have played their roles – to get the reader to clutch the book to her chest, totter off to the nearest couch, and start reading.
