Blurb - Take Two (New and improved!)
« on: July 06, 2012, 03:30:52 PM »
First, I really want to thank LM Gautreaux, Monique, Ruth Madison, M Black, ShayneHellerman, Chloe Piper, Becca, and George Berger for reading my pitiful first attempt at writing a blurb and chimed in with much helpful advice, and, in the case of George, writing something totally superior to what I started with.

I've been leaving it alone/working on it for several days now, and I have what I hope is a new and improved version.  I felt like my initial version was about 5% of where I wanted it to be, where I feel this one is much closer - maybe as much as 80%, thanks to all the good insights from everyone.

I'm still seeking the most honest feedback I can get, trying to narrow the gap to 100%.


September, 1975: Shawn meets Dawn, his one true love, when she moves into the vacant house next door.  Many people spend their life searching in vain for happiness, but he was lucky; finding it at the age of fifteen.

February 1979: Forbidden to see each other and feeling he is harming her by being in her life, he walks away from the love of his life, apparently forever.

December, 2006: After decades of sadness and mourning the girl that got away, he has a chance meeting with her that might change his life forever again. Can the sweet bond of first love not only survive, but flourish?

Feels Like the First Time lets you share in the magic of young love in small town America in the 1970s.  No matter how much the world changes, some things timeless music, high school dances, making out in the backseat of a Chevy Vega, and of course true love will always remain the same.


Thoughts, anyone?  Thanks so much!
