Help with my Book Blurb :)

Standard

I have been playing around with book blurbs now that my book is ready to be sold!!  It is up on Amazon for Pre-Sale with a date to GO LIVE Nov 21!! 

I have changed the book cover multiple times because of the way it looked from the printing company once printed but I have found one I am in absolute love with and looks great in paperback!

What would you do differently with the book blurb example below?  Don’t hold back 🙂  If you have questions about the publishing process feel free to ask or email me.  If you are a book reviewer and want to talk I am happy to have that discussion as well!

“Agent Colin Banks was doing what he did every day, that is, at least for the last three years.  He was chasing leads and arresting criminals of the State.  The young girl he picked up at the airport he assumed was collateral damage for a money-laundering scheme, he couldn’t have been further from the truth.  His years of service and following the law were about to be flayed open like a fish at a Chinese fish market.  Everything he thought he knew about the government he worked for was a lie and the trail of deceit stretched further than his military trained mind had been prepared to believe.  His young female suspect with her silence would soon make him leave behind his career to save her.  Will she be worth saving in the end?”

Turning off his alarm, Tom couldn’t help but think 4 A.M. was coming earlier and earlier every morning.  Even if it was his imagination, he was still tired of the early wake-up call.  He needed a change and he needed a new job.  Finally stumbling to the shower, he let the water wash those sleepy, yet, sober thoughts away.  Some days he wanted to climb in his old Jeep and run away.  He had nothing holding him here but a job and memories.  Those memories held him like an anchor to a dead end story.  A story he would love to rewrite chapters to~~ maybe today would be the day…

Castle.1

As Stephen the King of Azul waited for his council to gather, he couldn’t help but be anxious at their pending decision. Soon, someone new would reign and he would be free to marry the woman he loved. He trusted the new ruler would not imprison his kingdom and make it vulnerable to other far-off lands. They had fought to keep peace with great success for many centuries and he had hoped his love for Stephenie would not be the kingdom’s demise.

As Jill stood waiting at the luggage pick-up with her two children, she couldn’t help but be aware two men were watching them.  She didn’t know if the men had been on the flight, she only knew she felt uneasy.  She was beginning to think this new journey they were embarking on was a mistake and her father was right about traveling so far from home alone.  It was the most independent decision she had made since her husband disappeared one year earlier.  She had faith he would be back, everything would make sense, and they could put this mystery behind them.  No one else shared that belief.
