By the time I hit the halfway point in my stories, I like to have a tentative blurb written. If you don’t know what a blurb is, it’s the enticing synopsis on the back of books or on the description on their Amazon page. While I’m still fine-tuning the blurb for Dead Magic, I thought I would share it with you and see what you think.
Emmeline Jardine had no idea that when she stole a package, it would contain a grimoire that holds the secrets of life and death. Disillusioned with Spiritualism, she turns to the enchanting Lord Hale, who offers her a world of limitless opportunities at the Eidolon Club. But strange rumors stir about the exclusive club: grave-robbery, occult rituals, magic.
Across the city, Immanuel Winter, the boy who shares Emmeline’s soul, has settled into a peaceful life as a museum curator, but his happiness is short-lived when his past demons refuse to go quietly. Immanuel fears his sanity is slipping as body-snatching spirits attack and creatures return from the dead. Are they an illusion, or are they merely tied to the new powers he struggles to hide from his lover?
Dark forces are heading for London that threaten to tip the balance between death and life, and they are after more than the grimoire.
They want their soul.
So what did you think? Interesting? Terrible?

Dead Magic (Ingenious Mechanical Devices #4) will be out this fall and you can add it on Goodreads here.

I really like this blurb because it gives you just enough information to be enticing and also offers a good deal of mystery. 🙂
Thank you! That is exactly what I hoped it would convey. 🙂
