For Sale: baby shoes never worn

By Amy Romine Affiliate Author 

Hemingway was asked to describe his life’s work in six words and this was his response. This to me is an interesting challenge. My arch nemesis is the blurb, as it is for most writers. I know I struggle with it on every book. How do I shorten a piece that I worked on for the past six months into less than 100 words, much less only six!

So I am taking the challenge, and I asking you to as well.

Describe your life so far in six words.
Describe at least one of your books in six words.

The best answer wins a copy of my new book, Shockwave!

Here are my three answers:

Petrified emotion brings remorseful imagination

Trust Me - One Night, One Plot, One Love
Shockwave – Temperance shifts our sights toward home

Let the brilliance begin!
