I can now officially announce the title of the anthology.... Drum roll, please!
All I Want: The Anne Holly-Day Collection.
(Okay, that title makes me snicker, I admit it. I'm a goof; whadaya gonna do?)
The "working blurb":
What happens when a young violin prodigy sets his sights on the jock next door, a flighty witch thaws out a corporate stiff, or an uptown girl falls for a bartender? How about when a city slicker roughs it with a cowboy, a free spirited Spaniard seduces his calm and collected professor, or a fantasy writer teaches a no-nonsense doctor to see the magic around him?
Attraction, friction, and enough sparks to heat up the coldest winter!
Opposites attract under the spell of six different holidays in this collection of contemporary erotic romance stories from author Anne Holly, covering Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve, Valentine’s Day and St Patrick’s Day.
Each story reflects the glow and lore of the holiday that inspired it, but the collection is bound together by a single thread – the joy of taking the plunge into sizzling romance.
Yeah, I know, it's got rhetorical questions in it, and many people have already told me I shouldn't have rhetorical questions in my blurb. Yes, that's one of several things I shall be banging my head against as I re-write it.
I'll be refining the blurb over the coming week or two to make it stronger. I'm flipping through Amazon pages like mad, trying to troll for ideas, and haunting my usual tips-for-writers websites. I will continue to hone this blurb into a razor-sharp marketing powerhouse. *ahem*
However, if you follow this blog, you might know this is not my favourite part of writing.
So, if you have any feedback/suggestions/comments whatsoever, I'd be obliged.
