Erin writes . . .
Seth and I are suffering from a serious identity crisis. After living with the title Cursed for so long, our publisher has now changed the name of our book to Pledged.
Apparently there are over 250 books and DVDs out there with the word ‘cursed’ in the title – a publishing no-no, we are told. And yes, I know, it’s completely insane that this should be happening to us now, so close to our launch. But it is, and I have to deal with it. What really irritates me is that this problem could have been avoided if Gwynneth had just done a simple Google search before naming us. But she didn’t. And even though I’m a research junkie who could have done it in a blink of an eye, I was too busy dealing with curses and demons in Shenaya to also have to worry about the title.
Seth has told me to chill because he thinks Pledged works much better anyway. He never liked the previous title. Between you and me, he’s a bit sensitive about curses.
So, to make up for all mess, I’ve decided to share our book blurb with you. It reads as follows:
Everyone has a soul mate. But what do you do when your soul mate would rather give his soul to the demons than be with you?
Seventeen-year-old Erin has a problem. Seth has been hers forever, but now an ancient curse is tearing him away. And the demons who invoked it will stop at nothing – even murder – to claim him as their own.
How can she win against a curse so binding that it has damned countless others to this same fate – an eternity alone?
The answer lies in the past. To find it, Erin and Seth must risk all, travelling back in time to a dangerous world where love is forbidden, and life – and death – hang on a pledge.
Follow Erin and Seth as they travel to ancient Shenaya and confront the curse that has plagued their families for millennia. Caught in a war between the Angelic Guardians and the Gefallen, the disembodied dead, they must fight to keep their souls in tact and their love untainted.
Please tell me what you think so we don’t have another mishap. Would you rush out and buy Pledged based on this?
A nervous and irritated Erin
