Attempting to develop a short blurb to explain the importance of COVID-19...how'd I do?

**EDIT: thanks for the feedback, everyone! I would take what I posted here with a big grain of salt, it seems like there are plenty corrections to make. This is not intended to be a definitive wiki, but more a way to grab people's attention who might otherwise be neglecting or ignoring the virus. **

here it is:


let's talk coronavirus. Specifically the latest coronavirus, COVID-19.

here are some facts about it according to what we know now:

  • It can transfer through your eyes, nose, and mouth, usually through droplets in the air from a cough or sneeze. This is why a mask alone would be insufficient for your protection: those pesky, pesky eyes. Wearing a mask is how you protect your germs from spreading to others.

  • It can also transfer through surfaces, meaning that someone infected could touch a surface that you later touch and transfer to your face. It can live on surfaces for up to 9 days.

  • It has a Spanish Flu-like level of contagiousness, so it spreads easil

Random blurb about NAC and Alcohol

I just wanted to share my anecdotal report that ever since taking NAC daily (600mg one capsule daily) I do not get hangovers. I’m not sure if anyone has experienced anything similar. I’m in my late 20s and just a year ago if I drank a couple of drinks I would definitely feel it the next day. After being on NAC... even after drinking half a bottle of 750ml 35% alc liquor on an empty stomach I was back up and running the next day without any notable effects.

Purpose of this post again is just to share something I’ve noticed with NAC. Cognitively I’ve noticed nothing. Another interesting thing I noticed is that my wounds seem to heal faster.

Bingo Card Blurbs! Short reviews of my 2019 Bingo reads

2019 Bingo Card

A word about my rating system:

I rate on a 1-5 scale, where 1 is DNF, and 5 is "punched me in the feelings," or "I wanted to go back and reread immediately"

The majority of the books I read are 3s - good, but not anything that sticks with me once I put the book down. I rec a lot of 3s, but I read 80-100 books a year, so my standards for "good" can be really high.

Overall notes

I deliberately went farther afield with my books. I tried to read broadly authors who were non-white, not American, and/or not cis men. I didn't entirely succeed, but I did pretty well. I was expecting this card to be challenging, and it was, but I did appreciate some of the books that I wouldn't have otherwise read.

He ran the IT because the company started with very few people and so he took on an additional role. My current blurb says "In Appreciation for your IT Work Throughout the Years."

The Blurb of my Political Space Opera

Hey guys, if you've got a moment, could you critique the blurb of my upcoming space opera?

Book title: The Master War

Quick note: I'm going to publish this on Amazon KDP.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1X1Kief2gTjWwhNZmjS00QzcKid67SyLNhqENQtLXUvc/edit?usp=sharing

My thoughts: While the novel has plenty of drama, there are also some minor satirical and comical elements, which is why I included the otherwise silly line "truths so uncomfortable even a black hole couldn’t swallow them." If you think it just doesn't work, just let me know.

I considered leaving out the second paragraph about Kai, but I also wonder if it might help to mention there is a female PoV character to bring in (more) female readers?

Anyways, please let me know your thoughts. Thanks in advance!

Ok, I’ll stay for your meeting. ..a Sparkies tale. (and a blurb)

Hey.

Feeling a bit weird, so I distracted myself with a short tale that’s just a little silly.
See, I was fleshing out details on another long tale this morning, when I got a text from Son2, β€œYour story about Valve is up on Cheezburgers FAILblog. WTG old man.”

I checked it out, and for a few seconds, was a bit chuffed.
I’ve lived on-the-line since all the tubes got connected, lurked on a lot of different sites, so wasn’t a stranger to Cheezburger.
(I like saying β€œon-the-line”, from the movie β€˜The Interns’, because I’m older and people look at me funny when I do it. Here I am, working with some pretty technical equipment, power and data, and saying β€œon-the-line”. There’s a little glimpse into my head for you.)

Rune Nation blurb critique (round two)

Thanks for those who gave feedback to the first attempt at a blurb of my still-in-progress fantasy/scifi/steampunk novel. I have completely re-written it. Yes, it's longer, but other successful blurbs are the same length. And I think it does a better job of showing what's at stake in the novel. I look forward to your feedback!

Rune Nation

In the decades since the last war, two great technologies have kept the nations that wield them in a stalemate: Mecharcana, which encases the soldiers of Seyat in advanced armor and weaponry, and Bioarcana, which reforges the Ena soldiers’ DNA so that they become the advanced weaponry...

Din, like his small Enae town, straddles the border between the two nations. He got the thin frame and pale skin of his (half) Seyatin heritage, but grew up reveling in tales of Ena’s legendary soldiers. He found his place in his town as the resident Fixer, repairing enough out-of-date mech to keep food on his family’s table.

Then Seyat strikes, and Din cat

I'm listening to The White Tower right now and am almost done. I just reread the blurb and in hindsight it does a terrible job of telling what this book is about.

The events it describes do happen in the story but they are hardly the focal points of the story. Some happen very near the end, others are minor aspects of the characters journey.

John Poland’s dating life is an inconsistent string of short-term flings. As a recent college graduate, living with his parents and working a dead-end job, he’s unhappy and wants more out of life.

Then he meets Isabel, fresh out of college yet full of ideas that challenge the status quo. Their relationship blossoms into something special. But as time goes by, John finds that their lives do not follow the playbook they had planned for themselves.

He finds himself torn between living a complacent life and dreams of staying committed to his youthful ideals. To keep his promise to Isabel but stay alone forever, or to find happiness where he can and break that promise. As John grows older, the choice becomes easier… until his past catches up to him.

Back Cover Blurbs: Just For Fun (and random speculation on themes of Book 6)

My opinion about what makes a good blurb:

  • it should spoil as little as possible of the details;

  • it must be completely understandable from start to end by someone who is unfamiliar with the series;

  • it should be enticing to exactly the people who'll love the contents, reflecting the themes and the, like, feel of the books, you know?

  • it should not express definitive opinions on potentially divisive matters, leaving the readers with the joy of forming their own from scratch;

  • it should mention the protagonist's fucking name so you can tell what series the book fucking belongs to just from it. That's just my opinion

The Anomaly - Book one in the Psychonaut Chronicles

Earth, 2018. The Indagoans have been observing humans for more than 180 years, and recently concluded that there's an overwhelming risk of civilization collapse. The report caused interest in studying humans dwindle for everyone but Kalanna var Revegaar. The lack of interest from other experts puts her in charge of investigating the anomalies in Sevelek's field on Earth. She is hoping humans are close to discovering mind-transfer, a trigger for first contact. But there are darker theories: that humans are building a true AI, or even developing a weapon which would trigger more drastic measures from the Indagoan heterarchy. She recruits an unorthodox partner: her brother Taenoor, adept of the infamous zer'Makh order back at their home plane

Hi all - first posting here! I've published one novel, and I just finished a second and am deep in revisions. Would love some feedback on the book blurb! Are you: intrigued? confused? thrilled beyond measure? I'd love to hear in the comments, and thanks in advance.

Rune Nation

Din has always been able to repair runic power sources, automated threshers… really, any mech he can get his hands on. In a town almost straddling the border, the steady trickle of imported, out-of-date, half-broken mech is usually enough to make ends meet. But the first skirmishes of a war would put Din’s small town, and its strategic location, at the heart of the conflict. This far outside of the capital, Din knows that no one else is coming to help. And obsolete mech won’t turn one scrawny boy into an army.

But the Bioarcana at the Lyceum might. To protect his family, Din plans to attend the school, where advanced rune engineering will re-forge his genes to make him into a living weapon.

Looking for feedback on my back-of-book blurb!

*Mathias is a magician in exile, banished to the treacherous isle he grew up on. Stripped of his ability to perform magic, he's taken up a new life as a gravedigger. Trouble is, he keeps digging up memories he'd rather keep buried.Β *

*When his village is torched by a ghost from his past, the legendary Prince of Cinders, Mathias is forced to join up with his bitter rival, Devyn Corliss.Β *

Together, the two set out to put an end to the mad prophet's schemes and prevent the birth of a god. To do so, they must reach the mysterious Shallow Spire and unravel the strange history Mathias and the Prince share.

I'm not great at structuring this sort of thing (although I did look at a couple guides). I was hoping to get some feedback primarily on whether or not this would make you crack open the novel and give the first page a shot. If not, what could be changed to make that the case?

Cheers, and thanks in advance!

Edit: Updated blurb!

Hot take: What if TFA was a blurb and we should be comparing TROS/TL with PT?

So there’s that on that, TFA was a blurb in the force because:

  • 10 years without films
  • Nostalgic vibes for main trio
  • Curiosity for what happened next

And that drove the 2B BO, but in reality why Disney/fans are expecting the films to pull 1.5B - 2B when they never were that kind of an event?

I mean, ROTS made $847M, TPM made $927M (first run), so why are they disturbed and afflicted when they only gross $1.3B or $1.1B (TROS) when they are actually pulling more money than back then?

How is this for a blurb for my book that I plan to write?

Fleeing from a nuclear apocalypse on Earth to a new planet, Amlan Javali and his entire town find himself and everyone on the spaceship, The Tervery, redirected to an unknown galaxy through a wormhole somewhere in deep space. Beset by tragic disasters, Amlan must learn to rely on his new friends in the school, both human and territe, on Terrazero, the planet where The Tervery lands. Can Amlan stay true to his Indian roots, to his parents who've taught him all that matters is love, and face any terrors that come his way?

Any comments and ways to improve are welcome :D

Livin' on prayer, take my hand, we'll make it I swear. - that's where I got the idea of love being the purest form of magic ( his parents stories somehow suit this song, I know I can't use the song directly, but the song is a vague story of how his parents struggled in their twenties- when Amlan was just a child - I might make one book entirely about his life until the age of 11 - they land on Terrazero when Amlan b

Is this blurb good?

I am nearly finished with my third book Vicious (Book Three of The Proudhill Line) and I need help. I'm never the best at blurbs, so I was wondering if this sounds like any good.

" Two years have passed since the events in Krasnolovka, and Craeft's dream is finally within his grasp. He and Veliane are finally deemed ready for an accolade mission to prove themselves worthy of joining the ranks of the Ascean Knights. Their task? To hunt down the deadly Morsanguis, a vicious creature that plagues the swamp lands to the west.

But a task that was difficult to begin with is made near impossible when miserable swamps, the horrid Lusus and two unknown mercenaries are added to the mix. But Craeft refuses to give in, for he knows that if he can accomplish this one task, then his future, the future of an illegitimate child, will be so much better.

He just needs to survive to see it."

Zach Lowe Aaron Gordon blurb in his 10 things column.

https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/28482160/ten-nba-things-like-including-luka-doncic-dwight-powell-dance

Boy, did Gordon need this recent mini-hot streak: 60 points on 23-of-39 shooting over Orlando's last three outings, and a last-second game-winner Monday in Sacramento. It has otherwise been a stilted, disappointing season for Gordon.

I thought this was the year it might finally happen for him. I predicted Gordon would make the All-Star Game.

Instead, Gordon's production on offense has dipped across the board, though he remains engaged on the other end. There are three theoretical Gordons: the player Gordon wants to be; the player Orlando wants him to be; and the player Orlando needs him to be because of their roster construction. The actual Gordon is paralyzed in some sort of existential tension between all three.

The first player -- Gordon's dream for himself -- is a ball-dominant scorer. Orlando indulges that Gordon by calling occasional post-ups for him and giving him some

Blurb for Humorous Space Adventure in the same vein of Guardians of the Galaxy

Most people would consider being swallowed by an enormous space kraken a terrible tragedy. For this crew, it’s their mission.

Billyn Stryke just wants to go home. The same could be said for the other members of the Strangedust crew (including a sentient robot and a duck-man). They are prisoners, though, and the only way to break free is to find the Game Master’s Relic and win his sick game.

Rumor has it there’s treasure in the kraken’s gut, and the Strangedust crew are after the most valuable prize in the multiverse. Torn from their home realities by the omnipotent old man, each member of the team stands to win a wish--any wish they want.

What will they sacrifice to end the game and claim their wishes? Just how deep does a space kraken’s digestive tract go? Why are you asking me? I just work here! Don’t miss the face-paced wild prequel to Which Where, the hit sci-fi adventure series.

[Help] Blurb Critique

Hey everyone, I hope it's okay for me to post here. I saw /r/blurb_help but it didn't seem to be all that lively.

I'm preparing the launch of a new series and since I kind of always blew it on the blurb part, I would gladly appreciate your feedback.

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Mythical Creatures, Apparitions and Ancient Monsters. Corruption and Intrigue. All part of their daily job.

Bizarre deaths start to occur in the quiet and remote countryside village of Ibantha. Rumor among the town has it that the legendary purple Varadon has reappeared. A one-of-a-kind mythical creature that was thought to be extinct long ago. Discarded as nonsense by the Institute and other well-known Curiosity Hunters, the villagers live in fear as more and more people end up dying.

Right when they thought it couldn't get any worse, the only one willing to help is an odd duo that has never worked together before - Laurence and Celine.

Armed with Laurence's crafty gadgets and Celine's family heirloom

Advice on Writing a Blurb for a Facebook Post

Hi everybody. I'm currently writing a draft for a Facebook post on a public page about feminism and transgender folx, and before I publish anything I wanted share it with trans folx to see if anything I wrote was problematic. The link to the article I'm writing about is below, above my draft for the post:https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/mar/10/feminist-solidarity-empowers-everyone-the-movement-must-be-trans-inclusive

Over the past decade, transgender rights have been a topic widely discussed in civil discourse, especially in online places such as Twitter and Facebook. Where sexualities other than heterosexual are more and more in the mainstream, transgendered folx are in a way fighting a frontier battle, where they’re defined by their assigned genders at birth by ignorant and close-minded people. Feminism unfortunately hasn’t escaped this ignorance, wit
