I'm currently cleaning up my jacket blurb. You know, the little description of the novel on the back cover. It's usually around 80 - 100 words, and they're pretty hard to write. I need your opinion on mine. Please read it through...it's only 86 words, so it won't take long. And then let me know what you think:
As a young desert elf, Wanderer never planned to become an assassin. But with his homeland threatened by a tyrant possessed by evil itself, he now knows that this is his chosen path. Setting out with a half-blooded she-elf and two thieving humans, he has only a very simple plan – assassinate the usurper before it is too late. But as pain and death surround him, Wanderer must learn to rely on blind faith and friendship to finish this mission with both his life and sanity intact.
Based on that description, would you want to read this book? Why or why not? Please tell me what you think needs to be fixed or what you don't like about it. Do not lie to me. If you don't like it, I want to hear about it. Please do not leave this page without commenting below with your plain, uncensored thoughts. And thank you so, so much for taking the time to do so.
