Blurb writing stinks.

There, I said it. It’s hard. It makes us miserable.

And yet it’s so incredibly important to get it right.

I recently launched a new service, Blurb Writing 1:1, to help authors with this vital bit of writing.

Mustang Rabbit, YA fantasy author and one of my clients, has kindly allowed me to share the result of a session we had about the blurb of Adelaide and the Dragon Castle, a novel to be published on the 31st of March.

Happy February!

I’ve been doing so much this past month, I couldn’t even tell you whether January felt longer or not. It might have been though, looking at everything I got out of the way!

I hadn’t planned for these two to be up and running yet, but here we are: I finished the Get Out of Your Own Way Starter Kit, which you can get for free when subscribing to my newsletter (there, on the right).

If you’re still feeling those January blues, I have a great interview lined up for you. Anna and Lucinda are the hosts of Diving into Writing, and their podcast might just be what you need to get that inspiration back.Read More →
