Book Blurb!

I discovered that writing a blurb for the back cover of your own book is terribly difficult!

This is all I have been able to come up with so far and seeing as how I’ve stared at it for a long time, I find myself unable to form an opinion.

Blurb for my upcoming book Tree of Roses:

The land of Vedrunthus is a stranger place than Natiir Xylus ever thought. When he locates the warship he has been searching for, he finds himself on a journey that he never expected. Drawn into a series of odd events with a group of even odder strangers, he discovers Queen Ostayla’s evil plot and rather more villainous personages than he would like. Soon enough, he realizes he cannot keep his secret any longer and the journey takes him to places he never thought he would need to go with people he cannot seem to get rid of.

What do you think? Does it sound even remotely interesting?

  1. It sounds very good to me. I would be horrible at writing my own. Can I get someone else to do it πŸ™‚

  2. I’d give it a little less detail, make it a little vague, leaving the reading asking, “what about… ?” That way they will be more enticed to read it! I find the smaller the blurb the more I want to read it because I’m curious. Some authors even use the first few sentences of the book instead of writing a different blurb, which I find enticing as well. But, that’s just my opinion πŸ™‚

  3. I am personally intrigued by the part where he finds this mysterious warship he’s been searching for. The rest of the blurb is good, telling us there’s going to be evil queens, adventure, action, etc., but I personally would like to know more about the warship. Does it play a big role in the book? If so, I suggest putting more about that in the blurb. Most books have villains, adventure, and action — I’d say you should highlight the things that make your book unique in your blurb πŸ™‚
