Why Are Blurbs So Hard to Write?!?

One thing I am struggling right now as I figure out my next step with self-pubbing is writing blurbs! I can write a 77,000 novel, but having to write copy to get someone to buy that book? And keep it at 150-200 words?? That shit is HARD!

It’s one of the reasons that I haven’t posted my blurb for Take The Shot yet. I’ve written four blurbs so far, and I keep going back and forth on if I like any of them. A friend that is reading my novel also has the first blurb I wrote, but I haven’t heard back from him yet. I’ve tweaked that blurb a little bit and I kinda of like it…but also I wrote four different versions. It’s so hard!

I think maybe it’s just the story in the first book that is giving me grieve, because I also wrote blurbs for my other books in this series and I am actually pretty happy with those! So I think writing this book is just hard to quantify in a blurb. I think I need to sit with it for a little longer, but man are blurbs are hard but necessary thing when you are a writer!

Love & Hockey Pucks,
