Something new I’m doing for 2018 is a monthly giveaway, and since blurb editing isn’t an advertised service I offer, I thought that it would be an interesting thing to start with.
If you’re an author and your book is in production, you’re probably worrying about your sales blurb. This service can help you revise and/or polish it so that you don’t go live with something that will give readers pause or have them moving on. Or if you have an already-published book with a blurb that needs a fresh look, this may be just what you need.
I do have a few restrictions:
- Blurb must be for fiction.
- Text must be 300 words or less.
- Blurb to be edited can only be submitted once. In other words, you can’t send me a completely new one to edit after I’ve already started.
- This prize is for blurb editing, not writing. Any attempt to get me to write your blurb will result in the prize being voided.
Please allow up to one week for the complete revision process, as there may be several rounds we go through. The blurb can be for an old or new title; it doesn’t matter.
Reminder: If you are a client of Pikko’s House, a complimentary blurb edit comes with every editing project.

My blurb for A Name Among the Stars (SF):
‘Offer no weakness; suffer no wound.’
When disgraced aristocrat Zara Aguirre barely escapes with her life from her home world, she hopes that she’s found safety on the planet Kernow. She wants nothing more than to be left alone, hidden away in a remote town on the wild and untamed western coast.
But the sinister conspiracy that murdered her family has spread. Zara must reveal her Name and risk her own life to help expose the plot, or another world will fall, and people she’s come to love will die.
