Oops… I forgot something very important


Mutilated Dreams is with the editor and I’m very excited to get it ready for the betas and then ready to print.  So excited, that I started the next book.  As I responded to a comment yesterday regarding the missing title for the next Dreams book, I realized I had forgotten something huge with Mutilated Dreams…

It needs a blurb.  I have a file titled Mutilated Blurb, but it’s blank.  It’s been blank for a couple of months now.

This is an area where I fall painfully short, I have the hardest time writing jacket copy.  I have even considered trying to hire someone to do it for me.  “Here read this and then write the blurb, thanks!”  My editor will assist with writing the blurb, but I have to have something to start with and as I stare at the blank page, all I can think about is voodoo and Mardi Gras, neither of which figures into Mutilated.

Ok, voodoo might figure in a little bit, it is set in New Orleans, in the French Quarter and I might have mentioned the strange shops that cater more to tourists than actual voodoo practitioners… but that’s it.  It’s a footnote in the history of New Orleans for Aislinn Cain, along with weird stories of possessed houses and vampires.  After all, it is Aislinn Cain and she is in New Orleans, there is bound to be some aspects brought up.

However, it centers far more on the nightclubs, fine dining establishments, and sidewalk cafes.  But that isn’t much of a blurb.

Maybe it’s because this one is a little different…
