Help Me Pick My Hook


We’ve reached that point. The dreaded point. I need to have a one line summary of my novel, The Six Train to Wisconsin, for my promotional materials and my newly-created Facebook Author Page.

I despise one line summaries. How do I boil 400 pages down to a sentence? How?! How?!

Okay, sorry for venting.

I wrote out a couple dozen attempts. I’ve whittled it down to my top four with the help of a few people that read the manuscript.

But then I realized I really really need  input from people who haven’t read it. Because this one line summary has to grab potential readers’ attention.

So I’m putting up my first poll ever in this blogs three year history. Do you hear the trumpets blaring?

Please let me know what you think by voting or commenting on what didn’t work with any of the one liners. I really appreciate hearing your thoughts. 🙂

And if you like my writing, would you please click on the  “like” button for my just launched Facebook Author page (it’s to the left)?
