  1. Dan,
    I liked your advice and how the blurb for your book progressed but please, please don’t tell us that the girl he saw on the train turned out to be his assistant. That was a plot twist that I didn’t see coming at all and it had an excellent element of surprise that contributed to the success of the story. Just my opinion but it was actually one of the cleverest aspects of the book. Instead of giving it away could you just hint to it?

  2. Ok I just read the finished product which is very concise and to the point. At the risk of sounding obcessed, can you just say he runs into her again in a way he never imagined? Or something like that without losing the mystery of their getting together? That way we are still surprised when he sees her in the hotel lobby and all the men are looking at her. See, I still remember the scene! Just an idea.

    1. We aren’t finished. I posted it to get this input.

      You’re a good writer. Take a whack at it. Whoever comes up with the best blurb will get an acknowledgement in the back of the book.
