One of the joys of having a dog that we can’t trust to last more than 8 hours without a mess is getting up before 8 AM on a Saturday with 6+ inches of snow on the ground so she can go potty. The house was quiet another hour before the sleepy-head monsters got up (they were out of school yesterday and stayed up later than usual), so I worked frantically on Victor’s synopsis.
I already had several ideas jotted on notecards, but I hadn’t been able to piece them together in a coherent way yet. Thankfully, the pieces fell together this morning and I’ve got both a blurb and synopsis (I typically do both at the same time) drafted that I really like. I’ll let it sit another day or so — I can’t help but tweak here and tweak there, add a word, change this phrase.
Sherrialready provided incredible feedback and gave me one little thread to mull over. Writing the synopsis also helped me realize I needed to add a couple of paragraphs to the scene with Mama Connagher. Otherwise, I think I’m *this close* to kicking Victor out the door.
If you’re curious, this is the blurb I worked up this morning. Does it make you want to buy it and read more?
Reluctant Dom Victor Connnagher has been hiding the truth for years: he’s the meanest sadist in Dallas. As the CEO of a risque cable channel, he supports the BDSM community but doesn’t trust himself to participate. Not after he hurt his submissive fiancee [changed per Nicole’s suggestion] so badly that she dumped him.
Saucy and confident despite being submissive, Shiloh Holmes needs pain and a man who’s not afraid to give it. She suspects her boss is a Master with a capital M, so she creates a BDSM reality show for his channel in order to gain his attention.
On America’s Next Top sub, Shiloh will prove once and for all that she can please Master V. In any way he wishes.
