I’ve been writing like a banshee, trying to finish up Emily’s Heart, the third and final installment of the Akasha Chronicles. Emily has had to fight her way through more than a few battles in the last two books, but she hasn’t seen anything yet! Emily and crew are surrounded by danger at every turn in Book 3.
And I’ve faced my battles too while writing this danged book! Sometimes I’ve felt as besieged as Emily is ;-/
But the good news is that I’ve fought my way out of blind alleys and dark corners, and the end is near. Phew! *wipes brow*
This week I’ve been working on the book description. If you’re a self-publishing writer, you can probably relate to how ridiculously difficult it is to write the description for your own book. I’ve tried to write this about a half dozen times, but each time either ended up with two sentences or three pages!
Here is my latest attempt. It’s a bit different. Maybe that’s good. Maybe it’s not.
I appreciate honest feedback from any and all about your thoughts on this book description for Emily’s Heart. Is it too long? Too short? Does it pull you in? Does it make you want to read the book? Or does it bore you? Confuse you? Your comments are most welcome.
Seventeen-year-old Emily Adams unwittingly unleashed the shadow god’s dark energy power into the world and started an Apocalypse. But Emily is also the only one that can end the dark god’s reign. Though the powerful faerie magic of the golden torc is still coiled around her arm, self-doubt threatens to undo her. Emily wants nothing more than to feel the soft kiss of her one true love, but he won’t even speak to her. Her first crush is still quite dead and her best friend remains a prisoner in the dark god’s house of nightmares. A growing legion of black-eyed shadow people, devoid of conscience, roam the streets. Emily needs help now more than ever, but redemption seems far off indeed as she faces the darkness alone.
Emily will need an army of her own if she is to save the world from an eternity of darkness. But will a small band of Lucent geeks and freaks be enough to send the dark god packing?
Amidst chaos and ruin, will love blossom in Emily’s Heart?
