'Be Careful What You Wish For' - The Blurb

How to write a blurb for a sequel without spoiling the plot...


The second book in the How To Save The World saga,
Part 2A - Be Careful What You Wish For.
A few weeks ago I proudly announced the release of the second and third books in the How To Save The World series…

How To Save The World: Part 2A – Be Careful What You Wish For

And...

How To Save The World: Part 2B – By Whatever Means Necessary

This week I wanted to feature a brief description of the plot for ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ but it’s tricky to write a blurb for a book when it’s the second book in a series and you therefore can’t go into too much detail without spoiling the plot for anyone who hasn’t read the first book yet.

I had a few attempts at trying to write the blurb for part 2A without revealing the plot in any great detail, but in the end it was like trying to describe chocolate to someone who’s never tasted chocolate before.  I therefore eventually decided that the best way to do a blurb for part 2A would be to simply just write it and then censor out any offending plot spoilers.

So here it is…

“The second book in the How To Save The World series, ‘Part 2A – Be Careful What You Wish For’ follows on from the dramatic conclusion to book one with Eric’s adventures on the planet Fem continuing as he ******** ** ***** *** ****** ***** caught with a highland goat, an industrial strength vacuum cleaner and a Peter Stringfellow mask ****** ** ***** **** ******* allegations which I hasten to add were never proven ****** *** ******** **** the subject of a super injunction from Honey Crescent Farm which prevented any further incidents involving ***** **** ****** ** **** **** tasted like delicious strawberry blancmange but in actual fact was made entirely of **** ****** *** ****** large protruding object from his ******** **** *** ***** ****** took a team of highly skilled professionals several hours to dislodge ****** *** ******** **** ***** ten sessions of counselling for the understandably frightened monkey ***** ** **** * ***** ****** leading to the dramatic finale with things excitingly balanced for the next book in the series, How To Save The World: Part 2B – By Whatever Means Necessary.”

By Whatever Means Necessary
is the third book in the
'How To Save The World' series.
Hopefully this censored version of the blurb for ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ will give readers a brief flavour of what to expect from part 2A without spoiling the plot too much for anyone who’s yet to read the first book in the series, How To Save The World: An Alien Comedy.
