Book manuscripts aren't the only thing that go through lots of revision. Book descriptions also evolve over time. Ready for an example?
My January 1 release, Playing with Fire, recently got a new, longer description. Which one gets you most interested in the book?
Here's the original:
‘I make the rules.’ But is he playing his game—or hers?
Marianna Ruiz never thought she'd see Simon Rodriguez again—or that hiring him to unearth some suspicious dealings at her father’s company would lead to one seriously hot hook-up. At first it was just supposed to be some naughty revenge sex. But now, behind closed doors, Marianna and Simon have one last chance to finish what they started eleven years ago…
Here's the new version:
Marianna will do anything to save her father’s company—even hire her ex to help. When old desires catch like wildfire, she won’t let it consume her…but sometimes playing with fire means getting burned.
Following their forbidden teenage romance, Marianna Ruiz never thought she’d see Simon Rodriguez again. So when she does, she feels… Shocked? Angry? Tempted? All of the above? But they can’t get involved again, no matter how much Simon entices her with his rock-solid body…and those penetrating green eyes.
Marianna doesn’t need Simon anymore, or what they shared. She just needs his elite security expertise. A scheming ex and some suspicious dealings at the family business rattle her—and when things escalate, there’s no one else to turn to. When their time together in Sydney leads to some seriously hot hookups, Marianna doesn’t hold back in seducing him into satisfying her other needs.
Although their lust for each other burns hotter every day, Marianna knows she must keep the upper hand. Expose her scheming ex, save her father’s legacy and exact a little revenge along the way. Make Simon want her like she wanted him. Then leave and never look back…
What do you think? The new version definitely gives more details about the book, right?
