I made a blurb! Huzzah!
I know this doesn’t sound like much, but I have a partial mental block when it comes to writing the blurb for an upcoming novel. I fret and frown, pull hair, gnash teeth. Sometimes I consume large quantities of maple syrup. It’s all very unsanitary but this time I wrote a blurb for my upcoming release, Sweet and Sour, in no time flat!
Maybe its because the story is sweet and simple, and I’m also in the midst of finishing it so I’m particularly inspired. In any case, here it is, your moment of blurb zen. And mark your calendars for November 26, the day before Hanukkah and the release date for Sweet and Sour, 2013′s hottest Hanukkah romance and probably the only book combining pickle recipes, gay sex, and shoot outs!
Miles Piekus thought he and Itai would make a great team, despite the infidelities haunting their past. After all, Itai is smoking hot, they’re both driven entrepreneurs, and they love each other. What else did a person need?
Well, a lot more, apparently, because not only are they no longer passionate, they don’t even share the same passions. Like people, affections change, and Miles wonders if a relationship this broken is truly worth repairing.
Itai’s business launch with his ex-boyfriend isn’t helping. And Miles himself has a new business to grow over a busy few weeks where Thanksgiving and Hanukkah collide to form either the best holiday season ever, or a kosher caterer’s worst nightmare.
But help comes in the unexpected, ruggedly handsome form of Detective Dominic Delbene, a pickle aficionado with his own ghosts, who stakes out the deli to capture a dangerous drug dealer. As Hanukkah’s eight days come to an end, Miles discovers that Nic is not only good with pickling; he’s good at everything.
