Some of you are already familiar with these summaries (or loglines), and might've written them before. For those who haven't, it's not as easy as it seems. In fact, I was pulling my hair out over it. It was harder to pack my story into that one sentence than it was to write entire the book itself! I didn't know if I was supposed to simply tell what happens in the book or make it into a hook that isn't specific, but gets you interested. So I went to Google and I found this very helpful blog post by Melissa Dean at her blog The Guardian Writer.
This is the log line I eventually decided on:
While trying to escape an arranged marriage, Lividia Blackwell struggles to uncover the mysteries of her childhood only to discover a world of dreams, secrets, and dangerous fae.
What about you? Does your book have a logline?
