A few days ago, I updated the cover for Collateral Attraction. I dropped the series name because honestly, I don’t know if it will get a second book and when it does get a second book, I’ll release it without much fanfare… or with a lot fanfare, you never know. At least, that’s less pressure for me not to have a series name on it.
But a new cover for a book won’t help sell a book if other elements in your “landing page” sucks. A landing page is basically where your reader “lands” when they click on your link. It can be a web page like this or if your book is in Kindle Unlimited, then it’s the Amazon product page.
Of all my books, I really had the worst time crafting the right description for Heath and Billie’s story. It doesn’t help that descriptions or blurbs are harder to write than the actual story. How do you condense your 80K word story into 200 words or less?
So what’s Collateral Attraction about?
It’s about identical twins who don’t get along, billionaire brothers who don’t get along and someone out to get them while they’re too busy not getting along. So yes, complicated. But then, if they got along, I wouldn’t have a story…
So tonight I set out to redo the description to go with the cover, and I hope this time, it makes sense.
First impressions count. Too bad Heath’s first impression of me is wrong. So wrong.
When I first meet ruthless billionaire Heath Kheiron, he mistakes me for my twin sister, Blythe, who’s dating his older brother, Ethan.
I may have been too shocked to slap him when he calls her a gold digger, but when he calls her a thief and a fraud, I know he’s crossed the line and no matter what he thinks she did, I’m determined to prove him wrong.
But Heath isn’t my only concern.
Someone is setting my sister up to the tune of four million dollars in embezzled funds, and I need to find her before anyone else does.
There’s only one snag: I have to work with Heath to get to her.
