One of the more difficult things you must do as a writer is developing a "tagline" or "hook" for your story, something that is a mere sentence or two long that gives readers not only an idea of what your story is about but makes them want to read it.
It is nearly impossible for me to write a tagline for my books, most of which are 60-70,000 words. However, it is necessary.
I am proud to announce three tagline variations for Losing Dani Strumm. All of these came to me during morning coffee, and I believe the last one will be the one I use most.
Losing Dani Strumm TL1
Stranded alone on an alien planet, losing the only life she ever knew back on Earth. She never imagined her heart's true desire could only be found amongst the stars and ashes of the life she once lived.
Losing Dani Strumm TL2
Dani has dreamed of discovering life in outer space since she was a child and has trained her entire life to accomplish this goal. But, after an accident leaves her stranded on an unexplored planet, she finds that sometimes our dreams are actually nightmares.
