New Descriptions for Old Stories

I’ve been practicing “back cover” descriptions, as I’m trying to work up the description for my novel-in-progress to the absolute most enticing and interesting shape it can be. As an exercise and an experiment, I decided to rewrite the descriptions for my two Twelfth Night novellas. I gave them a subtitle on Amazon of “a Regency novella” to make it clear at a glance what form and subgenre they are, and instead of a two-sentence teaser I now have a 200-word description.

Judge for yourself if they sound more interesting now…jury is out on whether the public thinks so, too. 🙂
