Chasing Me Softly Blurb

Leave a comment

Just finished editing my short story (now officially a novelette because of its ending word count), and I’ve just written the blurb so I can get it all together and press the ‘publish’ button!

Without further ado, the blurb for Chasing Me Softly:

In a village where it is illegal for a woman to run, Chadel is a dangerous free spirit. By night she steels away from the crowded pavilions, the streets smothered in pipe- and cigar-smoke and other smells and oppressions of men, to breathe the fresh air and do that thing that makes her a criminal.

She runs.

It is a beautiful and dangerous game that she plays. At any moment, she could be caught – if they can catch her.

Or she could run full-tilt into someone who slowly begins to redefine what it is she is running from.

And what she could come to learn to run toward.
