Delaney Diamond (delaney_diamond) | 59 comments We have updated the blurb for this book. Is it possible to update the blurb to the following for us please?

What happens when the man you can't live without is your husband's brother?
On the eve of their tenth wedding anniversary, Kameron and Aaron Youngblood plan to renew their vows. They seem to have the perfect life and are the very definition of “couple goals.” Yet Kameron feels uneasy about her relationship but can't figure out what's missing. Until Bakari, Aaron's hot younger brother, arrives in town for a job interview, bold in his attraction toward his sister-in-law.
Kameron finds herself hopelessly drawn to him again like she was all those years ago when they first met. Now that he’s back, Bakari is determined to get Kameron to risk it all for him—even if it means losing his brother forever...

kittykat AKA Jo Tortitude | 2399 comments This book https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... has an author interview in the blurb (shown below) leading to wasted space and unnecessary scrolling. Please delete this.

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR

WHAT GENRE DO YOU PREFER?
Science fiction, dystopia, technothriller and, to some extent, young adult. I do have a series of novellas in the vampire genre. Yeah, I know. Doesn’t fit. That character, Drayton, came out of nowhere when I was at a community theatre production of Dracula. I figured that an immortal vampire would more likely become compassionate and wise as he grew older. The technothriller Halfskin is similar to vampires in that technology promises immortality and complete control of our bodies. But then what?

WHY A SYNTHETIC STEM CELL?
Organic life is too nilly-willy. We’re limited by our DNA. Give it to the scientists to perfect this vehicle that carries us around because it is a vehicle. If we no longer have organic bodies, if every one of our cells is replaced by something manmade all the way down to the neurons and synapses, then what are we? What if our world is just a computerized environment, ala The Matrix? Would we know the difference? Look, we’re printing organs today. I’m not, but someone is. Some genius has figured out how to push play and heart or liver or kidney comes down the chute. Halfskin takes the idea into the distant future and explores whether this leads to more happiness or just more of the same. Because more money, more problems.

DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER JOB BESIDES AUTHOR?
Day job, I’m a college horticulture teacher. Writing is a passion. No plans to change it.

WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
Breathe.

WHAT TALENT WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO HAVE?
Omnipresent supergalactic oneness.

IF WE HAD A CUSTOM THAT ALLOWED US TO EAT OUR CHILDREN, WHAT KIND OF SAUCE WOULD YOU USE?
Ketchup, the miracle condiment.

ARE OUR ELECTRONIC DEVICES STEALING OUR SOUL? AND IF SO, DO YOU MAKE
OFFERINGS TO YOUR TOASTER?
I offer white bread and the toaster gives back crunchy, brown bread. Never doubt a true miracle.



kittykat AKA Jo Tortitude | 2399 comments Same as 3, same author, you can see three different books (book 1, book 3 and Foreverland Boxed) in this series https://www.goodreads.com/series/1121... also include totally unnecessary bloat (author interview) in the blurb. Please delete them.

Thx

It gets confusing when a thread linked to a specific book or author is also used for other books. I am closing this thread. Start new ones for other books.
