REGRET ME NOT by Danielle Sibarium Blog Tour {Giveaway/Teaser/Guest Post}

{To see the tour schedule please click on the banner above} 

For Mackenzie Green life is full of regrets; regrets from choices she made in the past, regrets for the things she’ll never see in her future. She regrets letting her grades slip while her sister was in rehab, ensuring she’ll never break away from the rumor-run, small town she lives in. She regrets breaking up with her future All American football playing boyfriend, Brayden Turner out of fear of getting hurt. Most of all she regrets every decision she made leading up to the night that changed her life forever. 

It’s only after Brayden cuts her off completely that Mackenzie realizes how much she wants him in her life. She’s learns that losing what you love breaks you, but sometimes it’s the only way to tap into your inner strength. 

Can Mackenzie find the courage to learn from her mistakes and move forward or will she spend her days consumed with regrets? Is it too late to convince Brayden she wants him in her life and that she’s in it for the long haul? Most of all, can she accept that sometimes bad things happen no matter how hard you try to protect yourself from them? Can she put it all behind her or will she live an unfulfilled life full of regrets?

Thank you so much for having me here, I’m so excited, I can hardly contain myself! Have you read my blurb for Regret Me Not? I over use the word regret huh? That’s the problem with blurbs. You need to convey so much in such few words. It’s not that I can’t be concise, I can. The challenge for me is to get in the key points while being intriguing and without sounding repetitive. Sometimes that feels almost impossible.

On top of which, the blurb is usually the first impression a reader will have of you. You know how important those are! If you can’t capture their interest in the blurb, why would they want to go further? Bore a reader before they get started and the book is a no go, no matter how much people have raved about it. If you can’t hold a reader’s attention for a few paragraphs, why would they want to go further and read hundreds more?

Lately I have this problem not just with blurbs, but with just about anything short I need to write. There have been days I can get thousands of words down for a work in progress, but then I sit to write a quick email, and two hours later, I’m still not sure if I clearly stated my purpose in the five sentences I wrote. And yes, when it comes to email, what should take five or ten minutes usually runs into over an hour, sometimes a multi-hour process. So what do think about blurbs? How important are they to you?
