I have been working on the blurb for Through the Nethergate with a fellow blogger, Linda G Hill from https://lindaghillfiction.com/. I had no idea there was so much to learn about writing a blurb, although, in retrospect, it doesn’t surprise me as everything in the writing and publishing game is an interesting adventure. I am very grateful to Linda for her assistance with this. You should go over and visit her blog, she has written some great books and hosts some fun prompts too.
The new blurb is as follows:
Can one girl banish evil?
Margaret, a girl born with second sight, has the unique ability to bring ghosts back to life. When her parents die suddenly, she’s placed in the care of her grandfather to overcome her devastating loss. But the cellar of her grandfather’s ancient inn is haunted by an evil spirit of its own.
In the town of Bungay, a black dog wanders the streets, enslaving the ghosts of those who have died unnatural deaths. When Margaret arrives, these ghosts congregate at the inn, hoping she can free them from the clutches of Hugh Bigod, the 12th century ghost who has drawn them away from Heaven’s White Light in his animal guise.
With the help of her grandfather and the spirits she has befriended, Margaret sets out to defeat Hugh Bigod, only to discover he wants to use her for his own ends – to take over Hell itself.
A melding of fiction and historical facts, this fast-paced story will keep you riveted.
