Happy New Year!


Happy New Year to you all!

It’s that time of year, when we sit down and take stock of our lives and begin the process of listing all the things we would like to achieve in the coming year.  I like everyone else, have my own list of resolutions, the main one being, to get back onto a healthy path again, especially considering the ludicrous amount of sweets, biscuits and chocolate I have consumed over the holiday period.

Hyperion’s Folly has to be sent to the advanced readers on Monday, so my editor asked me that question that sends every author into a blubbering wreck.

“Do you have your blurb written?”

As you can tell by this post, I am avoiding doing just that.  To be honest, I find it easier to write the whole story than to try and write the blurb, that for all intense purposes, is the very thing that can attract or scare off potential readers.  Even now, the thought of what to write makes me want to reach for another bar of chocolate.

A lot happens in Hyperion’s Folly and to try and do it justice without giving away to much of the plot is a very daunting prospect.  As my editor is due to come online again very soon, I really can’t put it off any longer.

Wish me luck!

    Happy New Year, Darcie. Good luck with writing your blurb. I share your pain. I absolutely hate having to do that. As you say, it’s somehow harder than writing the actual book. I eagerly await publication of Hyperion’s Folly. Hope it does well. Carole xx
