A shiny new blurb for The Soul Seekers!




The folks at WiDo have updated the blurb for The Soul Seekers. And you know what? I think they did a wonderful job! The original one left Jesse out, so it's really nice to see his name finally included in a description. Btw, Jesse has turned out to be many people's favorite character—a nice surprise for me the author, and totally fun to hear about! So here ya go, the new blurb: 

When Emma Shay’s father dies, that summer– the summer of 1979– her mother moves them cross country to live with Gran in Springvale, a small isolated town in southern Indiana. Springvale is a place with bizarre rules that people are afraid to break. A place of hushed whisperings about long-ago secrets.

Emma’s own secret is her attraction to William, the dark handsome visitor at the library where she works. But she is puzzled and intrigued by his behavior. He sits day after day at the same table in the back of the library. He speaks at her but never to her. He is there and then he isn’t. He is beautiful, mysterious, tortured.

When Emma meets Jesse from the record shop down the street, Jesse offers excitement, a way out of town, and perhaps even a way to reach William and save him from his suffering.
Emma wants William, Jesse wants Emma, William wants to protect Emma. And the creepy town leaders– The Soul Seekers—want them all. But why?

  1. I agree. I liked the character of Jesse and thought Emma might have chosen him.

    1. You know, I heard that a few times and went and reread the book with fresh eyes. I have to say that I kind of agree! Well, ahem, there's always the sequel . . . lol.

  2. I'm still wondering why you chose an anagram of 'Shame Amy' for your main character

    1. I had the worst migraine, sinus yuck, nausea yesterday, and all day I kept thinking, "What the heck is Cro talking about?" So, Cro. What the heck are you talking about? Lol.

    2. I couldn't help noticing that Emma Shay is an anagram for Shame Amy; I have a weird brain. Spooky!

  3. Cro has a great question. Does that name leave too many questions that will prevent the story from moving on?
