Knowledge Is Power // Blurb πŸ“–

Hey popcorns 🍿

First of all something really weird happened, I posted an award a few days ago, it had been in my drafts for a while but when it posted it said I posted it on April 11th so literally no one saw it, I could have killed WP!! I must have not checked the date set before I published it but anyways check out that post RIGHT HERE so don’t worry guys I had posted after the iced coffee post but uh! The one time I stay on top of bogging and WP hates me.

So I almost, ALMOST didn’t post this because time flies when you’re having fun πŸ˜‚ I’m sitting here writing this with a coconut Superdrug face mask on that honestly smells so good and I kinda wanna eat it but at the same time I value my intestines πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚

You can tell it’ late, I have no self-control or filter of my crazy thoughts πŸ˜‚ Well I had such a fun day and managed to do a massive shopping haul today so maybe I’ll be making a post about all the products I’ve managed to buy!

I’m having a proper calm evening tonight so I thought: why not add blogging to my lil’ routine?! Especially because if I fail my posting-KIP-every-Friday schedule on week 1 then we are officially screwed!!

I apologise in advance if this post is so short… I honestly was going to include the Prologue as well but it’s still a work in progress so next week for sure!

Also I just want to clarify some things before we get into the blurb which is honestly so tiny and I can’t believe this post is only going to be about 500 words πŸ˜‚ :

1. Knowledge Is Power isn’t going to be having a book cover just yet.

2. I may or may not be also publishing this story on Wattpad, I might publish it once I’ve finished the novel, a girl can dream right?! πŸ˜‚

3. I am not totally sure if Chapter 1 will be the story extract I have already written, or if that will be later in the book, I think the latter option but as you can see decision making isn’t my forte πŸ˜‚

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER BLURB

Ella and Bella, two stereotypical teenagers ready to throw away everything they’ve got for that one party, that one kiss, that one guy, are trying to navigate the hardship of learning to do what they are told. They had one job: follow the storyline, word by word. They knew what they had to do, they knew they had to do whatever it takes to achieve it. They knew the consequences if they didn’t follow the instructions. However, once feelings get involved, everything becomes so much more complicated.

It’s all fiction in fiction until it all gets way too real…

Whoops! Just need to take off my face mask *hurries to bathroom to take off mask* okay and I’m back! I hope you liked the blurb, I actually really liked it for some reason πŸ˜‚ If you think there are any changes I could make PLEASE let me know, I’d love you forever 🀭 I ready love you all forever but you know what I mean!!

Next week will hopefully be the prologue, I know this is slow posting guys but I’m trying, I really am 😌

Did you like or love the blurb? Would you make any changes to it? What’s your favourite face mask scent?

ps. What are you CEO of? I’m honestly so curious, I think I’m CEO of self care πŸ˜‚ Anyways my skin feels so soft after this mask (I didn’t eat any, I promise! πŸ˜†)

  1. Hi! Sorry I’m so late! πŸ˜‚
    This is great Amber! Wattpad you say? Colour me intrigued – I would definitely read it! πŸ’•

    1. No need to apologise El! Thank you so much 😍 Yes Wattpad is literally my fave app at the moment (I may be writing a post about why I love it so much soon πŸ˜‚) Yay!! Prologue is coming out this week (I skipped last week, oops!)

  2. nooo i’m so sorry about what WP did to your post!! that really is awful, i hope it doesn’t happen again!! 😒 but that coconut face mask sounds like it smells SO good lol!

    and THE BLURB omg i need to read this now! you wrote it so perfectly, i cannot wait to read more ahhh!! 😍 i’m most likely the CEO of procrastinating πŸ˜… but you’re obviously the CEO of being amazingggg! ❀❀

    1. Awh don’t worry I have lost the anger at WP *for now* πŸ˜‚ Me too, I’ll definitely be inspecting the setting a lot further before I publish a post to prevent things like this happening! πŸ˜‚ Oh my gosh it is I literally need to buy another one because I’m addicted πŸ˜†

      Aw thank you!! Aw that makes me so happy that the blurb made you want to read the book πŸ’• Haha I feel you procrastination is just the worst and so hard to escape!! My heart is melting here 😭

  3. Ooh wonderful blurb, it definitely leaves you intrigued and wanting to know more!! Yet also doesn’t give too much away (like some blurbs that tell you something that happens a third of the way in) which is exactly what a blurb should do!!

    Also if you go into the options to edit your awards post I think you should be able to change the date on it to one in the future so people get the alert. I think anyway. I’m sure I accidentally posted something then managed to schedule it instead once. That was a whole ago though so the options may have changed

    1. Ah, glad it had that effect!! That is actually so annoying when blurbs do that, there seriously should be book blurb laws because some authors need to find middle ground with it πŸ˜‚ Blurbs should be allusive but still give a few details of the plot away so the reader has an idea whether they would be interested or not.

      I actually just did that after reading your comment and it worked!! I am very relived so thank you so much πŸ’• I was completely raging at WP because I spent so much time formatting the post 😭

      1. Definitely. Especially when it’s something that would have made a really good twist but it’s there on the blurb to spoil the surprise. Yeah I agree ☺️

        Aww yay I’m glad it still works then πŸ’•πŸ’• yeah I can imagine. I’m always scared of losing posts as I have heard of that happening to some people.

        1. Yes I totally agree! It’s unfair to us readers πŸ˜‚

          Yes that was a total lifesaver!! Oh my gosh I’ve never had that but that must be so upsetting to lose a post, the amount of time sometimes I spend editing and formatting πŸ˜‚

          1. I know. I’d be devastated. Editing can take so long. Especially when WordPress keeps only linking half of the text that I highlight. Sometimes it takes three or four attempts lately to make a whole book title a link and I don’t know why 😭

            1. Me too! Glad it’s not just me who finds editing time-wasting and just plain annoying! Linking can be hard and I do try to avoid it wherever possible but sometimes it’s the only option 😭

  4. I love this blurb! Like I so want to know more about them and how you go about it, because I’ve literally never read anything even remotely similar! Part of just wants to see them fall in love with each other and ditch the guy and I’m already making ships because aahhh flf is so beautiful ❀ ❀ ;-;
    I stopped reading on wattpad when I was around 16, but I do occasionally go on there for nostalgia's sake. But if you're putting this up on there, you can be sure that I'm re-downloading the app (for the 4th time ahahah oh god)!
    And that's so strange about the award post. I hope that gets sorted, but will be checking that out right now!

    1. Thank you so much Arshia! I know it is one heck of a concept, and I feel like I am waking a bit on ice when writing it because of how tricky the plot is! πŸ˜‚ Ah I agree, yes I feel like there may be a lot of obstacles (gotta bring in the drama) and I’ve not even guaranteed the ending yet, I feel like I need to flow chart the plot so I can stay on track though! πŸ’•
      Oh yes Wattpad is just my addiction at the moment, I’m in n epic novel and I love it!! HAHA my gosh! Thank you so much that would mean a lot, I definitely am leaning towards the idea of posting it there 😊
      I know right, me too as I honestly spent so much tie getting all the images together that I was just raging 🀭 Thank you so much for your lovely comment and still checking out my post xx

  5. LOVE the blurb, especially those last two lines of it! πŸ™Œ At the moment my favourite face mask scent is mint chocolate chip! πŸ˜‹ I think I’m a CEO of avoiding things I need to do πŸ˜‚

    That award post doesn’t show up in my reader when I scroll back but I’ve clicked on the link and I agree with the vast majority of it (I don’t do a lot of exercise aside from physio I’m meant to do) but can agree that the sense of achievement you feel from it is fabulous! πŸ˜‚ Reading *CHECK* Blogging *check* finding lost things *currently an undergoing project* (I actually have a list of things I’ve lost to keep track of it all πŸ™„πŸ˜‚) and hugs *big old check!*. We’ve been wary of hugging lately in our house what with all that’s going on with the virus but at the same time we don’t see the point in not hugging as we live together so that barrier is already broken πŸ˜‚

    That lists bit had me laughing! Can’t do without a good bulkload of lists βœ¨πŸ˜‚ Loved both posts (felt like Christmas having two to read! πŸŽπŸ˜‚). Take care πŸ’•πŸ’•

    1. Thank you so much Elsie, wow mint choc chip you must have to restrain yourself from eating it πŸ˜‚

      Yes something really weird happened there, uh I could literally have murdered WP right then! 🀭 That’s totally okay, I hope your physio isn’t too tricky. It really is, most of the time it’s worth the pain but sometimes no! πŸ˜‚ Glad you could relate to my small joys, I hope you find all of those things, that is some serious hunt you are going to have to take part in πŸ˜‚ Yes, hugs are the best! Oh I understand, yep that’s totally right, if you live together I don’t think it is a big deal πŸ’“

      Haha! Yes I thought I should definitely mention you in that πŸ’“ Thank you so much, awh glad I could give you some Christmas vibes! πŸ˜‚ You too :))

  6. I KNOW WHAT YOU SHOULD DO: 1) please don’t make their names Ella and Bella BAHHA πŸ˜‚ no rhyming allowed πŸ˜€πŸ˜‚ 2) you….. should….. make someone lgbtq 😳 bc a) pride month and b) GOING AGAINST THE SCRIPT and c) why not?!?! and d) f/f romances beat straight ones no cap πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ
    I LOVE THE BLURB THO.

    1. TELL ME!! 1. Yes I feel like that does need to be changed, but at the same time Bella = Bels and Ella could also be Elizabeth so many be other people could call her Beth? I have no idea, like can you write this for me?! πŸ˜† 2. YESS this is going to be a very diverse book, but we already know they kiss so… 🀫 3. Yes omg that worksss c. I totally agree d. F/f romances are cute, but I honestly prefer m/m for some reason?! Like I have so many more ships of m/m πŸ˜‚
      THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I’m taking all your points into consideration Aditi πŸ™‚

      1. 1. That makes sense XD XD that totally is fine, it’s your story anyways!! 2. Haha yushh but they can be bi! So even if they kissed a dude they can be with a girl too πŸ₯° M/M is awesome too ofc!! I guess for me it’s easier to relate to F/F?? hehe
        Yayyyyy!

  7. THAT HAPPENED TO ME AS WELL😭😭 I published a post and WP set it as a post that came out a week ago. Glad I’m not the only one dealing with this problem!
    Hahah, you should be the CEO of writing blurbs!! That was the perfect mixture of it being intriguing while also not giving away to much so that the reader wants to know more. I can’t wait to read it πŸ™‚

    1. OKAY GLAD IT’S NOT JUST ME πŸ˜… Ah it’s so annoying right?! Next time I have to check before I bullish because it just messes up my posting feed and ahh I was so fuming when it happened!! Oh my gosh seriously?! Thank you!! Ah I’m so glad I achieved that because I hate blurbs that give away too much, like there needs to be that middle ground πŸ˜‚ Awh thank you, I can’t wait to write it!
