Hi everyone! I’m working on my story and I am TERRIBLE at pitches. I feel like I make my story sound so boring and don’t understand the art of blurbs. I was wondering if I could get some feedback by anyone? Does anyone have any tips when writing a story blurb to capture attention and intrigue? Thank you so much!
Here is my blurb:
After a family inheritance and a mysterious fire destroys her home, seventeen-year-old Orion Candor begrudgingly moves to the peculiar town of Crystal Manor. Born with unexplainable abilities and a professional loner, she only wants to blend in - until after a near-death experience exposes her for who she really is. She’s a sorcerer who can wield elemental magic and must attend an elite sorcery school in the enchanting country, Isoria. But she’s not just any sorcerer.
Her powers are stronger and more erratic than her new classmates,’ attracting her unwanted attention. But after unearthing a hidden family artifact, she’s convinced her deceased grandmother, Cordova, is connected to her enigmatic past and intense powers. Cordova had a knack for magnetizing trouble with lethal consequences – and left one in Orion’s hands. It could be the key to liberating this magical world from crumbling beneath a cruel crown, but also to luring in Cordova’s vengeful foes. While following Cordova’s clues, Orion soon learns she’s more than a piece in Cordova’s twisted puzzle, but the missing one. As this fate falls upon her, Orion must accept that moving to Crystal Manor and discovering Isoria was not by chance, but someone’s mission – because they’re hunting her.
