All I can say is thank God for Sam Dennison over at Wild Wolf. Writing the blurb is just about the toughest part of the process, but he makes it look easy.
This is what we've managed to put together for my soon to be released novel, "Josiah Stubb":
"It is 1758 and the siege of Louisbourg is raging. The military might of the British and French empires collide in a desperate bid to control the key strategic fortress and, in turn, Quebec and French-held North America.
One man caught amidst the bloodshed is the young grenadier, Josiah Stubb. Raised by a whore amidst poverty and incest, Josiah seemed doomed from birth to a life in the gutter. His attempt to leave his sordid past behind leads him to Louisbourg, but it comes back to haunt him in the form of a gifted officer, battling his own inner demons.
As the siege blazes towards its inevitable bloody climax, will Josiah live to overcome the formidable obstacles that keep him chained to his past, or will his aspirations for a better life die with him on the brooding shores of Ile Royale?"
Look for the e-book to be released by the end of February, and the paperback a month later.
