The blurb: I’m Payton Blake. Just another successful twenty-something woman living the dream… OK, that’s a lie. But I could be those things, if I had friends outside of work. If I didn’t treat watermelon slushies like a food group. Maybe if I’d had sex in the last year…  Even if I wanted a relationship and […]

The blurb: In COMA GIRL, a victim of a tragic event lies in a hospital bed, at the mercy of friends and relatives who think she can’t hear them. But she SO can. My thoughts: Coma Girl was billed as “family drama, suspense, comedy, and romance.” I wasn’t entirely sure how that would happen, seeing […]

The blurb: The name on the screen was “Absinthe.” But I knew her as the sultry voice blowing up my phone for late night chats about Proust and Hemingway interspersed between the filthiest little … mutually satisfying exchanges … I’d ever experienced in my life.  We’d never met.  Until the day she walked into my […]

The concept: What if you gave six authors the same blurb? Would the stories look anything the same? Or would they be as different as the authors writing them? The blurb: You know those people that have a house full of motivational slogans? Embrace Every Moment, stamped on their coffee mugs. Always Kiss Me Goodnight […]

The incriminating ink belongs to Jonathon Townsend, […]
