Some days pulling the right words from my mind is difficult, tedious and time consuming. I weigh the words I use, if one conveys the idea better than another. I agonize over them, turning the image over in my head to make sure I haven’t missed anything. Does it show the characters in the proper light? Are they mad, happy or sad? Does the tone change due to this word instead of that one?
Nothing compares to the torture of crafting the perfect blurb. I’ve spent the last two days trying to write 126 words. The most perfect, insightful, intriguing blurb I can think of. To condense a full novel into a few short paragraphs, wow.
And so, here is the blurb for Sylvia’s Torment:
Second of the Enforcers and Coterie series, each one is a standalone book delving deeper into the world where magic co-exists peacefully with the ordinary, for the most part…
But not broken. Derek wants Sylvia back–now. His Beta. His second-in-command. His lifemate.
As a Top Alpha, few obstacles stand in his way. Even with near infinite resources at his fingertips, he feels useless. If he doesn’t find her soon, he’ll turn feral and destroy everyone in his way.
He waited to claim her…
Has time run out? Three months since her abduction, Sylvia keeps a mental tally as day passes into night. Torture and endless rounds of experiments push her to the brink. Escape, rescue, it’s hopeless, impossible to obtain. Silver in the walls burn her, drugs keep her complacent. If she escaped, would she be sane? If she came home a damaged werewolf, would her pack accept her…
Or kill her?
