Hi, I’m the Bobbi from Bobbi’s Book Blurbs. I love them. For me, blurbs are like the beautiful jigsaw puzzle you’re working on that’s missing those last few pieces, preventing you from seeing the epic picture. Once all together, you have a masterpiece.
I’ve been lucky in that most of my publishers have allowed me to work my own, and I’ve had the privilege of working with a few select authors in helping create theirs.
Here are a few of mine.
From Swamp Magic (Paranormal and a longer style blurb)“Deep in the muggy swamps where there is but one rule, kill or be killed, a new species has emerged - born not from nature but spawned from evil.
Octavia wasn’t stupid. Those unfortunate souls who have crossed paths with her didn’t just become swamp creatures, they became the least deadly of them. She hadn’t counted on the strong spirits of those she’d cursed.
From those murky swamp depths, a hero emerged. The type from which legends are born.
Moss, whose sensual iridescent tattoos are in fact thanks to his reptilian side, still struggles to come to terms with his fate and wants nothing more than to be left alone.
Beth’s life becomes upturned when she reluctantly agrees to accompany her idiotic brother on a hunt for the Bog Man. When she becomes separated from the others she comes face to face with the legend himself . . . only no one ever mentioned how damn sexy he was.
The swamp’s dark history tests the duo on their survival skills as well as luring them deeper into the magic of the swamp.”
From Dead Man Rising (Shorter variety)
“The Society had come to hurt her. Planted a bomb.
He’d saved her and died doing so. Or so they thought.
He’d been buried and mourned over...
None knew, he’d only been playing possum.”
From An Accidental Basket (Contemporary)
In one nightmare moment, Calyssa lost everything.
Danny took a chance on love and lost.
Often it’s in those darkest, confusing, gut-wrenching hours... hope finds a way to bloom again.”
From Table for Three Hold the Blood (Horror)
“Shana, Erron, and Marklon hadn’t realized life had more than a committed threesome in store for them. Like catching the serial killer monster who is leaving bloody body parts in restaurants throughout their small town—on platters no less.
The first murder and subsequent meal/gag occurred not long ago, at the upscale eatery, Carnal Cravings. Not long after, nearly every restaurant in town had served up some form of unexpected tartar. Heads on platters stuffed like prize pigs at luaus and people popsicles. Even deli-wrapped penises, taking Oscar Meyer Weiner to a whole new plane of pun, have rocked the sleepy little town of Crow Manor Maine to a state of panic.
It was then the nightmares began for Shana and her two men. It wasn’t long before she realized they weren’t nightmares but visions. They’d become attuned to the killer. As the threesome fight for their love and their lives, old skeletons tumble out of the closet that could literally carve them to shreds.”
Each story has its own voice, as should the blurb. Some need more words to convey the message where others need very few to create that “punch” for the back of your book.
Here’s what author Nikki Lynn Barrett had to say,
“Bobbi is the blurb Queen! I've always said I bow down to her skills. Really, she's been a great help when I get stuck on how to word things and I know if I ask for help she'll be patient and send me some feedback that I have incorporated into my blurbs.”
But best yet... for now, getting started, if you don’t use the blurb(s) I create you don’t pay. Simple as that.
