Again, thank you so much to everyone who commented on previous versions of my blurb. You’ve helped me focus on The Big Smoke‘s key selling points and ‘hook’.
I’m quite happy with my latest attempt, but I’m keen to hear what you think. Here it is!
Ceara’s desperate for love; Seb’s desperate to get laid. Ceara adores reading novels; Seb hasn’t finished a book in years. Two strangers, both moving to the same Brisbane suburb for uni. As they prepare to attend the same university, their paths seem destined to cross. But they keep missing each other. Maybe fate is keeping them apart, or maybe it’s just chance.
When university starts, things get complicated. Both their best friends start acting weird, and the relentless demands of uni make their stress levels soar. Before their first semester is over, both Seb and Ceara will be forced to question who they are and what they want from their lives. Will they have the courage to find the answers, or will they crumble under the pressure? And will they finally meet, or remain strangers forever?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts! I promise I’ll stop bugging you about this very soon… maybe.
