Using Absolute Write's query help in the Share Your Work section as a guide, I've come up with a blurb that I think encapsulates the paranormal suspense I'm working on.
If anyone wants to comment as to whether it's good, so-so, or it sucks, feel free to do so.
This is what I've come up with.
Tessa Palmisano can see auras and uses this power to bring in a little extra money for living expenses, as the office temp jobs aren’t coming in as quickly as she’d like. When her landlady offers her a month rent free in exchange for cleansing a house of its bad auras, Tessa didn’t know there’d be sexy Bertrand Gaston and a beautiful but mysterious dog thrown in with the deal.
Dark auras have malevolent energies, while light auras have harmonious energies, and it’s Tessa’s luck that the house has entwined dark auras. It will take time to unravel the energies—time Tessa does not have.
For if the dark auras are allowed to stay entwined, their wicked energies will bind to the house, inflicting murderous or suicidal thoughts on those who live there, including Bertrand—and the landlord.
But can Tessa figure it out before a new killer is bred?
What do you think? Okay? Sucky? It's the first in a series, and I've already got an idea for the next one. BTW, it still looks like it's going to be a novella at this point. Not that that's bad or good, just sayin'. :-)
I'm thinking of self pubbing this by the beginning of April.
