Okay, well really I don't yet. I'm still writing it.
But that seems to be the battle cry of every author out there. Yes, yes, I know you have a book. It might even be pretty good. But don't jump in my face saying it's the next best thing to sliced bread. Send me the blurb. If I find myself drawn in... I'll give it another look. If it's got a hot cover model, well, I'll look at him and then read the back blurb again (maybe).
Okay, I'm being a bit catty (What'd you expect?). But I don't want a story crammed down my throat because you want me to buy it.
Yes, your story is probably fine. But if it's not something I read... (sorry, not a historical junkie... and if you haven't guessed, I like a whole bottle of tabasco spice in my stories)... I may not pick it up. If you harange me about it... Sorry. You lose. I won't read it.
Childish? A tad. ::shugs::
Never let it be said I wasn't blunt or honest.
But if you go about it by letting the book speak for itself... and the cover do it's thing... You'll be surprised. I might read it AND like it. And if I like it, I"ll tell my girls.
But that's just my opinion.
I'm off to do other things.
I need to do some research.
