New Book – Half Breed Queen – Book Blurb!!!

When a county fair fortune-teller gives 14-year-old biracial high school freshman, Marla Owens an ominous warning of things to come, things rapidly go from bad to worse quickly when Marla’s parents are killed. Was it an accident or intended murders? And who’s to blame for such a heinous act?  Marla now has to get out of town fast, or the killer or killers may be after her, too. She travels to Edgemeadow, North Dakota per some last words of advice from her dad, and a note she finds from her mother.

Devastating tragedy puts Marla on a fast-paced journey of survival, revival and coming of age—even though she’s still just a girl. She soon learns more about herself and her family than she could have ever imagined— her mother was royal heir to the powerful Skatian throne! And now the Skatian people need her back to protect their world from war.

In a classic tale of good versus evil, set on Earth and beyond, a young girl fights to survive to become a young woman—and a reluctant queen of another planet.  Who can she trust? Will she be able to control her own immense abilities and justified anger to do what’s right? One thing’s for sure: Marla’s not in Texas anymore!

  1. Hey Lori!
    Sorry that took a bit. Here are my thoughts on the blurb.

    I would cut out the whole first paragraph and start off the second paragraph with “A devastating tradegy puts 14 y/o Marla on an interstellar journey of survival. The day her parents are brutally murdered she learns that her mother is royal heir to the powerful Skatian throne! And now the Skatian people need Marla back to protect their planet from a war with —— who ——.
    But there are other forces detirmined to make sure that never happens even if it means killing Marla, Skatia’s now relunctant queen.
    Some girls want to be princesses, Marla just wants ——”
    Of course, this is just my take on it, you can take it or leave it as you will. 🙂 I suggested taking out the first paragraph, because it provided information that wasn’t exactly needed (could be totally wrong about that though….) and it bogged down the summary.
    Try to keep your summary under 150 words, it will force you to put in only the most important bits guarenteed to grab a reader.

      • Your book does sound interesting, so don’t let what I said discourage you! 🙂

        • Oh no, I really do appreciate the feedback. It’s the only way I’ll learn!!! You’ve been here before so thanks for the wisdom, Yoda LOL
