My current WIP is a collection of 7 “novelettes” (longer than a short story but shorter than a novella). They’re all historical and each story involves one or more characters overcoming something. I’m wondering if I should give a general blurb about the sweet feeling of victory or if I will give a few lines about each. For the back-cover copy, I intend to five a short blurb about each one. But the book description, I’m not so sure about.
My most recently published book on Amazon is a collection of 6 short stories called Stories of Hope. I did a short blurb about each one in the book description. This is what I wrote for the first three stories in the book:
<b>Left Holding the Bag</b>
A chance encounter changes Lucy Mae Logan’s life for what appears to be the worst.
Orphan Sally Parker’s hard scrabble life on the streets of New York City is about to change in a most unexpected way.
A bully gets a wake-up call in a surprising twist.
Not that I’m unhappy with this, but I’m wonder about other ways to deal with a blurb for a collection of short stories.
