Seventeen-year-old Melanie Easton lives in a loveless home with her negligent, self-absorbed, and potentially dangerous mother. Consequently, she knows loneliness. Living in self-imposed anonymity, Melanie struggles to survive without becoming bitter and hate filled. Unexpectedly offered a ride with a classmate, Robert Reynolds, Melanie finds there is more to people than she ever imagined.
After being befriended by Robert Reynolds, windows of opportunity open for Melanie. Accordingly, the road to discovery divulges there may be reasons for her strange home life. The reasons she never imagined until she begins unraveling the documents hidden away.
Out of the discovery of the secrets, lies, and deceptions, come the possibility for exciting changes. Perhaps along with the answers, comes the opportunity for genuine happiness.
A suspenseful story that will engage your heart and mind with hopefulness and admiration for Melanie’s courage and willingness for self-discovery and personal growth.
Refrain from getting so excited by this new blurb that you attempt to run out and purchase the book today. There is almost a week before the reissue occurs. If you purchase the book today, unfortunately, it will contain those annoying errors that I have been working diligently to correct. In addition, the revised book accommodated my rewriting tendency. Consequentially, the new version has almost seven thousand new words spaced out over four new chapters. Nonetheless, I swear it was harder writing a blurb that didn’t curl my lip, than writing the first chapter of the book.
That being said, I would love your input on this blurb. Did the blurb attract your attention? Did it provoke interest in the topic? Did the blurb provide encouragement to purchase and read the book? Does it turn you off the book?
Resist buying today, however, don’t resist or hesitate to comment. We all have opinions, I actually embrace hearing yours. Please let me know what you think.
Coming up with a book blurb that works is more difficult than it appears. This is the official blurb as of today. Thinking about today reminds me of what Scarlett O’Hara is known to say:
“After all, tomorrow is another day!” Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind.
As I complete the final details, I wanted to share the (hopefully improved) book blurb. I decided to show it today providing time to receive feedback.
As always, please be honest and forthcoming. A candid and honest opinion would be so appreciated.
On a side note:
If you are interested in providing a review for the reprint, it would thrill me to provide a copy in exchange for that honest review on Amazon, Goodreads, especially on your own blog.
Obviously, I am going with subtlety at this point.
Thank you in advance!
