June  – Regency Masquerade blurb challenge! 

I am looking for the best short blurb to advertise my book without giving away too much of the plot!

When I first published my book I had the following short description –

“Old fashioned regency romance with a metro sexual twist – Frances comes to London to discover her identity and finds a Lord she could easily fall in love with – there’s only one problem, he thinks she ‘s a man. And her adventures are only just beginning.”

The book sold quite well with this but several people queried the use of ‘metro-sexual’, wondering what I meant, and eventually I changed it to the following:

“Old fashioned regency romance. Frances has lived most of her life dressed as a boy, learning to shoot a pistol and fight with a sword. Constantly moving from town to town with her gamester father, it was far safer than being a girl.

When her father dies unexpectedly, Frances comes to London to discover her identity and finds a Lord she could easily fall in love with – there’s only one problem, he thinks she’s a man. And that’s only the beginning of her adventures.”

Now, this one seems a bit ordinary!

The challenge is for you to write a better blurb for me,  or at the least, tell me which of mine you prefer and why.  Word limit is somewhere between thirty and two hundred. If I think yours is better than mine I will use it, with your permission.

Please email your comments and / or entry to me at info@veraloywriter.com

PRIZE for the best entry will be a free copy of the book (via Smashwords)

Thank you for participating
