Dieting and new blurb

Does anyone else think that stevia is the worst tasting crap ever? That stuff is horrible, like super sweet baking soda. I'm trying to stop consuming so much sugar, but stevia/truvia and the like just aren't going to cut it. Any suggestions?

Oh and here's a new blurb. I know it seems like I change it every week, but I'm trying to figure out how to make it more appealing. Let me know what you think:

When sixteen-year-old Jensen Meadows finds herself caught in the middle of an ancient faerie war, she quickly learns that faeries aren't made of sparkly goodness like Disney would have the mortal world believe. They're vicious. And worse, they're after her.

With the help of Liam Casey, she searches for her missing sister and begins to suspect that her whole life has been nothing more than a faerie tale.

But what if the truth turns out to be more than she can handle?

***ETA: I've given up on the row80 challenge. Yeah, I'm a quitter. :(
I'm still aiming to finish my book in June. I just don't think I can keep up with word counts, etc. And as you can see, I got rid of the row80 button thingy. Everytime I saw it, I felt bad, so it had to go. Hope I'm not letting anyone down.


  1. LOL! You aren't letting anyone down. BTW, your page looks the new look.

  2. I loved the new look! I'm trying to get one to my own blog.
    About the stevia - just try to get used to it, it's get tastier in time. That's no use in overusing sugary tastes, too - try to cleanse your palate.
    And as for the blurb, I'd leave Disney out of it. But it really gets my attention. :)

  3. @Shawna: Don't laugh. I was so excited about the challenge, then it just fizzled away, lol. I suck. And thanks for the compliment.

    @EEV: Uh I don't think I'll ever get used to it. I actually feel sick whenever I use it. I'm clearly addicted to sugar. :/

    And thanks for the tip about the blurb. I'll fix it as soon as amazon lets me.

  4. I haven't tried it--I see ads for it, but haven't found it at a grocery store yet.

    You're blurb is great! :)

  5. Angela, I couldn't find it at the grocery store either. I ended up buying it from Walmart.

    And thanks!

  6. Are you using pure stevia or Truvia? I like Truvia a lot better than stevia because it's mixed with the sugar alcohol, erythritol. An easier transition to stevia might be Sun Crystals which is a cane sugar/stevia blend.
