COBRA CUTLASS on BLOG DAYS OF SUMMER by KM Wilsher

BLOG DAYS OF SUMMER
BACK COVER BLURBS
I’m studying “back cover blurbs” and short one line synopses. The goal of this research started out egocentric really. I needed to know all I could about good summaries for back covers, because I want an outstanding back cover blurb for my work in progress.
As I thumbed through great synopses written by both published and unpublished writers, I realized I knew some pretty awesome writers. Thus the idea for this series was born. Why not share these great writers with everyone? Why not dive into conversations with the great writers I know and soak in the knowledge!

This week I decided to share my own. I wrote a short story, COBRA CUTLASS, and am now turning it into a novel. As I write this post, I'm in Sedona AZ with other fellow writers working on it.

So here is my one-liner for COBRA CUTLASS


Evil stalks with iron jaws, the time for J.R. to find her purpose is now.





Hooked? Come visit me tomorrow for the "back cover blurb"

You know I am! I read this short story and it's perfect for expanding into a novel! I can't wait to read it as such :).

Brandon said...

That's awesome your expanding the short into a novel :)

And I like the one sentence hook. I also like the name JR for a girl...in my mind, it automatically makes her a strong female character.

Brandon, Somehow I missed this comment :)
{{smile}} Thanks!
In the spring you sent out a "challenge" to send in a short story to Rogue Blade, remember?
That is when COBRA CUTLASS was born:)
I didn't expect to like JR so much! And I didn't expect a sword and sorcerer story to feel so "natural" if you will.
Thanks for the challenge LOL
