High, I want to know if you'd pick up this book based on title and blurb...

THE PRINCE'S BODYGUARD

Once, the Quell family fell from grace. Now their lone heiress walks the world, a sword-for-hire, a no-one. Then, one day, Wellnia Quell witnesses the death of a king, the murder of a queen, and narrowly rescues a prince from the clutches of a mysterious enemy.

Navigating a world she barely knows, Quell ventures to get the prince to safety. Hunted by an unkown enemy wielding black magic, and treading a political world that killed those she loves, she will be forced to give everything in protection of the royal family that put her own to death.

All of this for a boy. To make things worse, the boy might not be telling her everything...

I'm really considering changing the title, probably 'The Tale of Quell and Rain', Rain being the name the prince takes as part of the endeavor to not get recognised.

Edit: ok guys! I heard your feedback. I'll definitely work in thebtitle6and the blurb. The new title is 'Quell and Rain', if you are curious.

Blurb for grimdark otter story

Hi! I am seeking general feedback on the blurb for my upcoming release, which is a grimdark novella about a sea otter set in a sort of cultural bronze age of the whales and dolphins. I will most likely self-publish it or offer it for free through my website as a first ”single” for the larger novel project/world (I have a novel almost done, and several short stories in the pipeline).

Title: Oyster’s Scream

In a world without man, the oceans teem with life... And death.

It is the dawn of the Age of Whales, and the coast is alive with the sermons of blubber and the toil of fins. Wary after past predation on their kind, the otters of the verdant Squidwood live out their lives in the shadow of the dreadwhales, godlike predator-lords of the Scaled Sea.Β When a wanton male otter commits blood treason against the porpoises of the Gullclans, their fury threatens to drown all of the Squidwood, in defiance of the Skinsong, an ancient law written in scars across zealous whale flesh.

But the por

Atheist blurbs for rock garden

My community has a rock garden where people paint rocks with nice little sayings. The idea is that people looking for an uplifting message can visit and take a small stone that a stranger painted. I find they’re are often religious overtones in the content. What are some ideas for atheist content I can add? (I thought about doing Hail Satan for kicks but trolling unsuspecting families in my neighborhood seems overly sadistic given that 2020 has been a pretty rough time regardless of who you are)

Blurb Assistance for Gray Haze

Hey, all! I'm working on a blurb for my fantasy novel, Gray Haze, and was hoping for some feedback. The novel is 300k words and has many characters, so as you can imagine this has not been a simple task. Any tips would be appreciated! :)

GRAY HAZE (SECRETS OF VOLENIN, BOOK 1): CHOOSE YOUR MASTER

Amora is a beautiful waitress desperate to escape the small town of Fog Creek. When the Master of Earth is summoned by her best friend’s father, she must abandon her dreams to preserve her family, even at the cost of her soul.

As valedictorian and star athlete of his high school, Malik can do anything except make decisions. He wants his path through life paved and straightforward, but when destiny calls, he is loath to answer. He must trust the Master of Amal’en, a seer who can reprogram reality, to survive.

2020 Mock Draft w/ Lottery Blurbs

Used Tankathon and simulated the lottery. Went with the first simulation that didn't include a "Orlando" team in the Top 4. Still in the process of learning the team needs a bit but the selections are mostly a reflection of my own personal opinions on players and team situations. Any feedback, positive or negative is appreciated.

ROUND 1

  1. Atlanta Hawks – Anthony Edwards, SG, Georgia – LaMelo Ball and Trae Young doesn’t seem like an ideal fit. James Wiseman becomes a bit redundant if Clint Capela is healthy. Anthony Edwards is probably the best athlete in this class and also has one of the highest ceilings.

  2. Charlotte Hornets – LaMelo Ball, G, Illawarra (USA) – If Charlotte jumps up in to the Top 4 they are going to take the BPA available. They have some solid role players on the roster but they don’t have anyone with star potential though the homer in me knows that P.J. is better than he's been credited for so far. LaMelo brings that star potential.

A little blurb of what I’m feeling before my first bowel resection surgery this Friday.

I tell myself not to be scared Over and over. A broken record playing. I am a little kid again, sitting on crunchy paper in a sterile room. The walls ooze big stories that make the front page of people’s lives. Doctors offices mark milestones, diagnoses, exciting news of pregnancies, or pre-ops for surgery. I know even grown men share my fear and oddly that doesn’t comfort me. I know the drill, poke my arm for blood, double check my weight and height. My insides ache, sharp knife cuts all across my right side. I wonder what it will be like once it’s gone. In 72 hours I will be on the table as they cut me open, a fore-fronted battle with my disease. Will it be like a missing limb, do ghost pains exist for the digestive tract ? Will my insides shift once I’m closed up, as the doctor makes room by taking a part of me out? The nurse is nice enough, she calls me cute although at 28 I consider myself a grown women. The paper crinkles as I shift nervously. I close my eyes, inhale the cold

A blurb about creating a good player/character?

Hello,

When I first started browsing D&D content I saw a couple people had posted this paragraph about creating a good character and being a team player.

It was something along the lines of "players in this game that go off by themselves or don't have teamwork find themselves dead." I don't think this blurb was even from a DnD book but the advice was posted around some DnD subs because if how universal the advice was.

If anyone knows what I'm talking about ir can point me in the right direction I would love you forever. I DID do some googling and came up with nothing.

Archiving Story Blurbs [Help Needed]

https://www.mediafire.com/file/v4nury5v1en2g1j/Story_Blurb.zip/file

These were all taken with an iPad on the English version of the game and cropped to the appropriate size.

This is not a complete collection however, since I have not completed all the Collaboration Events, Anniversary Maps or Story Digests maps since they have been introduced/reintroduced. If there is anyone that has completed them and has the capacity to take some screenshots to add to the archive, that would be amazing.

At the very least, this does include the entirety of Act 1, Act 2 and all of the other Regions with unique descriptive text that are still accessible.

Feedback for blurb on back cover

Hi! I will be self-publishing my novel soon, and so I'm putting the finishing touches on the cover together with my cover designer. One of the few things remaining is to write a blurb for the story to go on the back of the book.

The book is a science fantasy with adult themes centering around freedom/oppression and all that fun stuff.

A little personal blurb on how police and healthcare workers helped me

I found out I was hallucinating because I called the police to report domestic violence in my apartment complex. They came in, checked on all of my neighbors, and left. I called the next night, they checked all the rooms again, and then asked me several questions.

They informed me that I was hallucinating. I was so scared, I couldn't help crying. They did seem genuinely worried and kept reminding me that I wasn't wasting their time and I wasn't in trouble.

They offered to take me to a hospital and accepted my refusal. They left after giving me their business cards.

I kept the cards in my wallet next to all of the doctors' cards that I met up with the following week. I was thinking about emailing them a thank you. But I didn't get around to it because I was juggling psychosis, depression, and school.

And now with all of the protesting going on and all of the discussion about acab and defending the police, I don't think I can send that thank you.

Did anyone watch the β€œtrivia pop-up” airings of the show? I specifically remember one of the blurbs about air bending but have found no reference to it ever since

The blurb said something like β€œfirebenders have lightning bending, earth benders have metal bending, and waterbenders have blood bending, but what is the special bending ability for air benders?” And the answer was sound bending.

I thought that was a super interesting β€œfact” and I’ve never seen it referenced to again. There are videos on YouTube titled β€œ107 facts about avatar” and even β€œ107 MORE facts about avatar” and sound bending isn’t mentioned in either of them (they had facts about characters and in-universe things, so it wasn’t just facts about the creation of the show or animators)

I'm working on the blurb for my work-in-progress fantasy novel. Please have a look and let me know what you think. Is it succinct enough? Does it entice you? I am giving too much away? Or not enough? Any tips or comments would be greatly appreciated!

Darkness ascends on the land of TΓ­r. It has been two hundred years since the great purge of witches. The fae are all but destroyed, and the Enokkian mages' tenuous control on the land is slipping.

Alaric has lived a life of petty thievery and roguish escapades in the far reaches of the Enokkian empire. A horrific hunting accident plunges him unwillingly into a world of danger and arcane power. Forcibly conscripted by the Enokkian mages, he sets out on a quest of dubious morality. Will he do what he knows is right or grow into his role as a soldier of the Enokkian army?

A blurb from my travel diary

I was looking through my travel diary and came across this little blurb about a kebab I had in Poznan. Wanted to share it here since I still think about this kebab and Poznan so often.

I was in Poznan for a day while waiting for my friend David to arrive from the USA so we could go to Prague.

Right around the corner from my hostel in Stare Rynek (Old square I think, Lviv has one too) there is a kebab place called β€œHabanero Bistro” and since it has been a while since I had anything spicy I wanted to try it out. I asked the woman about the level of spice but she grumpily replied that she didn’t speak English. Damn. Well, I pulled out my phone and asked her if the food here was spicy or β€œspicy”. She confirmed that it was in fact spicy and gave me a toothpick thingy covered in a habanero sauce to try out. Indeed, it was very spicy and a nice fat tear began to roll down my cheek so I ordered up a kebab on bread (the burrito wasn’t available) and waited.

My Ace Attorney fangame 'blurb'

ACE ATTORNEY: AFTER JUSTICE

Lives are often changed by just the simplest of actions, and it is with the simplest of cases that this story starts. When Phoenix Wright bids a frosty farewell to prosecutor Raelyn George, he never expects to see her and her manipulative courtroom tactics again. But their paths cross again in Britain, and Phoenix rapidly finds himself dragged into the development of a new law that would change the attorney system forever. What’s worse, a serial killer known only as The Reaper is on the hunt. As the body count racks up, Phoenix is forced to consider what justice really means, and just how far people are willing to go to achieve it.

I’m going to be honest, I do not know if this fangame will ever be made. I would really, really like to make it, I have so many ideas and so many characters that I’ve already fallen in love with, but I have no experience of making a game before. Still: I would like to.

Back cover blurb for a novel idea

Just looking for feedback on a story idea I've been mulling over for a few days now. Technically, it's a bit of a twist on a story I shelved due to writer's block, but I digress. Obligatory "on mobile, forgive formatting".

Downfall

Amy Stark wakes in a strange world with little memory and a sense of impending doom. With no known relatives, a young nobleman named Soran generously decides to sponsor her until her true origins can be found. Due to an unexpected attack, she discovers in herself a talent for magic--an ability not found among the commoners.

Meanwhile, rumors about secret cults and groups of assassins begin to circulate. Though Soran dismisses it as fiction, Amy grows suspicious that he knows more than he lets on. All the while, her sense of panic grows stronger by the day. Amy is left to wonder: who is she, and why does she have a strange feeling that she's connected to these rumors?

What Makes A Good Blurb?

So blurbs are their own literary monster. Despite their small size and the fact you've already written the story. They still feel more daunting than writing an entirely new novel.

Mine has given me several walk away headaches.

So what makes a good blurb? Do you sum up the first chapter? The first arch? The whole novel? Do you include the subplots? Do you spoil some details? Do you mislead with the blurb? And many other questions about the little wonders that I can't think of right now.

Seeking feedback on YA fantasy-Western blurb.

Hi folks!

I'm in the process of self-publishing my debut novel, and I'm working on tightening my blurb. Here it is so far:

The Hespyrian West is a place for legends and lawless men. Here, Jae Oldridge works as a bounty-hunter, getting by on her wits, her magic map, and not much else. At seventeen, she hunts not for money or glory, but to find her missing father- kidnapped by ghost-riders three years back.

When a saloon brawl brings Jae to the enigmatic Harney gang, she feigns interest in assisting them, hoping to turn them in later on. Survivors of the Arrowwood War, the gang pillages silver, without interest in much else... and no one knows why. The gang is led by two brothers: the stern, commanding Halston and headstrong, fiery Hodge. Joining them is an aristocrat-turned-outlaw, a rugged, snake-skinned Azmarian, and a young storyteller with a mysterious past.

Gunfighting their way across the wilderness, the group encounters warlocks, monsters, and ghosts in the service of Ster

Book Blurb Help

Aloha,

I'm getting ready to launch my first two books and am looking for some feedback on the blurbs for the back of my covers. I've had my two novellas (a series) professionally edited and am in the process of having the covers created. It will mostly be digital copies through Amazon but I am having my covers crafted so I can use their paperback printing service too. They are both YA contemporary fiction thrillers.

Smacked: Daisy's Dilemma (1st book):

Every family has secrets.

Having escaped to the West Coast at seventeen to rebuild a life from the ashes of her harrowing past; Daisy never would have imagined the sins of her in-laws would cause her perfect little suburban family to be caught up in a decades-long revenge plot being carried out by a Mexican cartel on the streets of Los Angeles.

That fateful night at the 2017 Women’s March would change her life forever. The walls are closing in, and a heart-wrenching decision must be made before it is too late.

In the midst of

[CN] Victor's Mini-House Blurbs

Saving the best for the last so Victor is next-- haha, just kidding. I'm going to spread some Victor propaganda next about how he's pretty chill in his normal every day life.

  1. Time, which eternally dashes forwards, embellishes your memories with a warm flowery border. However, sometimes it'll secretly stop its steps and this becomes a little shared secret between you and Victor.
  2. There is always two cups of coffee on this table. One belongs to you as you work, and one belongs to him as he seriously supervises your work.
  3. At home, Victor often looks over documents here. Chai Chai is a good companion that keeps him company, but of course there is also you beside him at the same time revising your documents. ^(Chai Chai is the name of the Shiba Inu mascots.)

If Persona 5 were to get an Arena Game, what blurbs would the new characters (Phantom thieves and etc.) have under their names

Basically what I mean is, in Persona 4 Arena every character has a little blurb under their portrait that described them (for example Yu Narukami: The sister complex kingpin of steel, and Chie: Spunky Dragon with deadly legs.) If Persona 5 where to get an Arena Game, what would you want the character blurbs to be.

I made a few myself

Joker: The Phantom Thief of Many Names

Haru: The Sadistic Axe-Wielding Gardner

Akechi: the seeker of justice

Blurb/Description for a project im working on that I would love some feedback on

I've been working on this grimdark project for a couple of months and was wondering if the premise seems interesting to anyone other than the five friends ive talked to about it.

Title: No True Peace

Blurb/Description: When the Peninsular Empire and the Gruje Republic signed the Armistice Pact and ended the War of Primora, no living soul imagined that the chaos of the new peace would be more catastrophic than war. While the two greatest continental powers lick their wounds and millions began to adjust to post war life, vaccums of power left in the conflict's wake rapidly become the battlegrounds of new ideas that are just as dangerous as they are hopeful.

Hope for lasting peace is dashed when the Archduke of Celez is assassinated by a political revolutionary and the mounting tensions threaten to once again engulf the continent of Primora in the flames of war all while an ancient power reawakens with it's own malicious intentions.

POV Characters:

-Myrian: A freshly grad

Carnivore text blurbs.

So I was listening to Carnivore on spotify but then I remembered that the music video for Carnivore had a lot of cool text blurbs that pop up. I played the video at 0.25 speed and just scrubbed through frame by frame to see if I could make any of them out.

Whenever Dustin pops up on the CVR cams, a box appears next to him with the header "STARSET LEADER" with more text scrolling under it (As you can see in the attached pic). I took the time to try and read the pixels and it turns out the blurb... is a bio for Boris Johnson? lol what.

This is what I could make out of it: Born 19 June, 1964 is a British Conservative Party politician who has served as Mayor of London since 2008. Initially coming to public attention as a journalist, he became the editor of The Spectator in 1999, the served as a Member of Parliament (Can't tell) from the 2001 general election until 2008.

[ADVICE] How to write a romance blurb?

I've looked at a lot of genre writing forums and they all seem to have different advice on how to tailor a blurb to the specific genre. I've worked my blurb a lot, but I can't seem to get the romantic aspects of it. Do you have any advice on how to make a more romance centric blurb?

My story is about an artist, Kirill, who begins communicating with a mysterious someone who asks him to return the magic journal they're currently communicating through to its owner, the mysterious person's friend. Kirill doesn't know who the person is on the other side but is slowly falling for them through their correspondences.

Here's the blurb:

An adventure romance about an artist who finds a journal that writes back.

Kirill is uninspired. Stuck in a mundane loop, Kirill tries to find new things to get excited about, but a hunting village isn't the easiest place to find inspiration.

One night after work, Kirill finds a journal filled with drawings of places he could only dream of seeing. Inspired,

Query Blurb Critique

Hi there. I'd love to get a second opinion on the blurb for my YA fantasy novel, The Herbwitch's Apprentice. Here it is:

When Miss Amarante Flora is forced to attend the Season, she vows to survive the event unnoticed, unchanged, and most importantly, unmarried. However, her plans are foiled when she attracts the attention of Prince Ash and the disdain of the illustrious Duchess Wilhelmina.

But Amarante soon realizes that she has more to worry about than the frivolities of the Season. She is half witch in a kingdom where magic is feared and forbidden. Despite the dangers involved in associating with witchkind, Amarante becomes apprenticed to a recluse potion maker. Meanwhile, strange things begin to happen in the palace. The Queen falls mysteriously ill and Amarante, with her newfound powers, knows Duchess Wilhelmina’s hands are not as spotless as they seem.

When Amarante joins Prince Ash in the investigation for the culprit, she realizes that exposing the Duchess’s schemes coul

A short blurb about ScribeAmerica

Hi all,

For all those that are looking to apply, don’t waste your time. They’re rolling out something called Scribe101 for people that apply.

So, the way it usually works is that when you apply, you receive an invite for an interview. If the SA interviewer thinks your availability and typing speed are good to go, you then go through the virtual classroom training which is about 15-25 hours.

Now for Scribe101, before you even go through the interviewing process, you are going through 15 hours of unpaid training to deem if you are eligible for an interview. The only state they can’t implement it in is California because it’s illegal there, but they can somehow do it in all other states because they are classifying it as general scribe training, which you can use for other medical scribe jobs and you can β€œplace” out of the unpaid training.

They are doing this because they are losing a good percentage of candidates during the virtual classroom training and that means that they are l

I am the kind of person that likes a nice cover on a book. And I'm a little guilty here because sometimes if I am picky and if I don't like the cover of a book, then I won't read the book, even if it sounds promising.

And I think this is hindering me from getting great finds. I like r/suggestmeabook because they recommend reads with only the title and blurb, and sometimes, why they like it.

And I was wondering if there's a website or something that does this too, just to give me even more options?!

Blurb Critique Request

Howdy, I have written a Fantasy LitRPG novel and I would like a little help with the blurb. Please let me know if you have some suggestions on how to improve it.

Alistair is a hard working man, using his Light Mage skills to earn a living as a smith. It may be boring, but he has a family to provide for. But then he loses his job.

Finding a new job is hard enough, but things keep piling on. His son needs help graduating an adventuring school. He needs to buy a skill book he can't afford right now. And if he doesn’t find a solution soon, they might lose the house.

It all keeps coming down to money. He finds himself up against nobility, monsters, and the city. All he wants to do is find a safe job and take care of his family, but as time goes on he finds himself considering crossing lines he never thought he would.

Fantasy LitRPG. Alistair is a native in a world of stats and blue screens. No harem, he is a happily married man after all.

I am writing a poetry collection and I'm almost ready to start publishing but I want to get some last minute feedback on my free self-marketing plan and my blurb:

>Have you ever felt like you just don't belong? Yeah. I have too.

It's about wanting to be loved and not wanting to be loved. But most of all, FRAGILE GOODS is about discovering who you are along the way.

Why District 12 is the way it is (spoilers for Ballad of Singburds and snakes blurb)

So, as wek know, in many ways District 12 is better off than probably any District other than 2. The peacekeepers literally encourage crime, the president himself knows that Katniss and Gale go hunting in the woods and probably everyone in District 12, including the peacekeepers, know that the Hob exists.

But this got me thinking, why 12?

I think that BoSaS is going to answer this question, but I'm pretty sure I already know the answer.

According to the blurb, Snow gets attached to the female tribute of District 12, and we know at some point, he's going to have to make some sort of sacrifice. What I think happens is that he will let her die/lose/whatever and the reward is a very high position in the Capitol. What if, if he really did feel bad for what he did, he actually regretted the decision? He can't bring her back, so he does the next best thing. He leaves District 12 almost entirely to their own devices. He probably knows that they won't start a revolution because ninety perc

Which blurb is better?

Hi, been working on my query letter and I've been editing the blurb with struggling success. I decided to make two versions of it. Which one is better written and gives a better understanding of the story? What I changed was mainly the beginning and the pacing. Also, the book is supernatural/historical fiction.

Are they both bad? Both meh? What could be changed? Some previous top criticisms were that it did not make it clear who my main character was, the writing was confusing, and did not make it clear when my story takes place. So let me know if it feels like any of those things still.

Thank you.

I tried to just make a link post but it wouldn't let me.

I am on mobile, so you might have to switch to the desktop version. Enjoy!

Have just learned that each stock market company has their own profile blurb...

They were likely written years and years ago but they're charming af and I feel as if I'm reading up on some juicy drama!

If you click on any of the names here it'll redirect to their profiles and associated companies!

Some favourites are the Chia Steel Holding because... I guess that's where Neopets infrastructure is manufactured? Confederation of Fish Lovers hold marches and chant... Faerie Clothing Ltd: "Some critics referred to their Halloween collection as - just a bunch of grapes, thats not scary, thats dull.

Kau Kau had a bacterial scare and Peo Water Park had a "series of tragic accidents"... what does that mean??? Can you elaborate??? I adore this

Just wanted to thank the KR team for the little blurbs you get when you hoover over a general

They're real neat! It really makes KR feel like it's own proper world with all these hierchieres and histories to go on. I also love the little notes at the end saying who they like/hate or some of their personal quirks. It's really entertaining and gives a new symbolic significance to generals ingame
