A Girl Called ARI

In a distant future… A world divided… A walled city in a devastated wasteland…

For Starla, a struggle for power becomes a struggle to survive when she finds herself on the wrong side of the wall. Lost in the wasteland, she faces warring factions, bloodthirsty creatures, and the endless burning sun. And then there’s Ari… who is she really? And can she trust this girl from the wasteland to lead her back to the city gates?

One thing’s for sure, Starla’s once privileged life will never be the same.

‘Joyride’ Blurb.

Garrett and Tammi are a beautiful young couple from L.A. with marriage problems. An out-of-state vacation helps bring them closer together, but not without death and destruction along the way. They head back to their home state with renewed vigor only to be confronted by the people whose lives they altered.

After one of his friends is accidentally killed, Harker convinces his mom, Eloise, that the desert doesn’t have anything left to offer. She allows her 18-year-old son, a senior in high school, to pick a direction and they set off to find a new life.

These interwoven storylines begin in New Mexico and travel alternative routes to reach the wine and redwood country of California. Spanning the course of one intense week, Joyride highlights the wild life that can be found on the road.

5 Steps To An Irresistible Book Blurb.

5 Steps To An Irresistible Book Blurb.
 
 
1. Start with a headline that implies a promise.
 
Headlines have 2 goals: capture the attention of readers and drive them into your body copy – simple headlines are the most enticing. Start your headline with an action word and then imply a promise of what readers can expect to gain from your book. Here are a couple of examples.
 .
Learn Uncovered Secrets about Bin Laden’s Life.
 .
Find Out What Drives Killers to Kill.
 .
2. Make your copy “easy-on-the-eye”.
 
If your headline draws readers in, don’t lose them by using large blocks of text. Instead, make it easy to read “at-a-glance” by employing the use of headlines, subheads, short paragraphs & bullet points. This sales technique creates open space, which visually makes it fast and easy to read.
 .
3. Chose the right voice.
 
Create a confident voice for your back cover. Depending on the topic, your writing should project suspense, compassion, wisdom, insight, humour, intrigue, mystery, etc. Choose a tone that matches your book and fill it with emotion.
 .
4. Focus on what your book is about – not on what happens.
 
Focus your back cover on how readers will benefit from your book. What curiosity will you satisfy? What challenge will you help readers overcome? What inner desire or need are you going to meet? Describe the satisfaction readers will gain from reading your book. Take your writing to this level and your ability to motivate readers to buy increases dramatically. No matter what your book is about, a reader will read it to fuel specific emotions within them. Identify what those emotions are and use your back cover copy to stir them up.
 .
5. Leave them wanting more.
 

This technique requires a little practice, but always conclude your back cover in a manner that leaves your readers begging for more. Tease them up. Give them the sizzle, but not the steak. However you want to phrase it, conclude your back cover so readers have no choice but to run to the book counter as they reach for their wallet.

History

A blurb is a short promotional piece accompanying a creative work. It may be written by the author or publisher or quote praise from others. Book blurbs are printed on the back or rear dust-jacket of a book. Not only ia a blurb crucial, it’s essential. It’s the message that seals the deal and tells the reader why s/he absolutely, positively, MUST buy the book.

Gelett Burgess, who came up with the word “blurb” in the 1907 with the book Are You a Bromide? featured a woman he called Miss Belinda Blurb, extolling the book’s manifold virtues from its cover.
