Blurb for Planet of the Flakes

Further to my last post, things are moving along for the publication of Planet of the Flakes. I am still working with my editor who is in the process of reviewing my revisions, but has already let me know that she really likes the new scenes I added to the book to flesh out the secondary characters and develop my main character’s relationships with her friends and family. Additionally, I am scheduled to have a phone call with my Book Manager this afternoon. The Book Manager will be assisting me with the promotion and marketing of the book and I am very excited to hear her ideas. I didn’t have any assistance with marketing for my first book and am delighted to have someone on my team this time around. All that remains is the assignment of my cover artist. I have been brainstorming ideas for cover art and am looking forward to that stage of the process.

Finally, my editor sent me the blurb for the book and I wanted to share it with all of you!

Here it is!

“Jane Frank is ready to fall in love. It’s been a year since her long term relationship ended and far too long since the last time she was kissed. With the LSAT coming up she needs to find a long term boyfriend (or husband) before acing law school and becoming a partner at her father’s law firm. There’s just one problem: all the guys in New York are flakes. They seemingly drop off the face of the earth with no warning and no explanation. Should she join her best friend Marissa in singlehood, making cupcakes and watching True Blood? Or should she follow her co-worker Andrew’s advice and turn the game back on those who scorned her? As Jane attempts to juggle her own responsibilities and put up with the problems of everyone around her, she starts to realize that the dating life isn’t as easy as she originally thought.”

Hopefully, the blurb has tweaked your interest. If you have ever dated in NYC (or any large city for that matter) and been on the giving or receiving end of the disappearing act, you will probably relate to this book. And even if you have been happily married for 20+ years, I guarantee it will make you laugh and possibly make you cry!

    I can’t wait! The blurb is perfect and leaves me ready to get my hands on this book.

    (However, why can’t we have it all? Cupcakes, True Blood, and dating? 🙂 )

      I’m so glad you liked the blurb! I think you are really going to enjoy POTF! And maybe you CAN have it all – you’ll have to read and find out 🙂

    So excited for you, Mers! I’ll be lining-up on release day! And, hmmmmm, how about we work on some of those promotional ideas together? I would be happy to help! Love you. 🙂

    Thanks Alisa! I would absolutely love to brainstorm promotional ideas together! Maybe over a drink. And one means three, of course.
