This blog is only for the log line, also called an elevator pitch or tagline, of your book. You know, the one that sells your book for you. One of the most famous log lines in history is: In space, no one can hear you scream. Now tell me you don't know what movie that's from and I'll tell you, you've been living under a rock for the last thirty years or so.
A great log line will make your book memorable. Please share yours with us!
Each month, we will have a contest for a $20 Amazon gift card. The contest starts the first day of the month 12:00 am and ends at 11:59 pm the last day of the month. To be entered into the monthly contest, readers need to leave a comment for the daily log lines. Each comment is equal to an entry into the current monthly contest. The more you comment, the more chances you have to win but please, please, PLEASE leave your email address so we can contact you should you win. Prizes not claimed within 72 hours are forfeit. The Log Line Blog management reserves the right to not award the prize should entries fall below fifteen entrants for the month or if the majority of the comments appear to have no relation to the blog entry of the day. Address all questions to email@example.com. Thanks for your participation!

BTS Tours and Freya’s Bower
are proud to present the Santa’s Little Helper Scavenger Hunt. 32 blogs have

to his hip with the other. His lips grazed hers, a gentle touch at first, but
the kiss increased in intensity. His tongue slid along the seam of her lips,
begging for her to open to him. Without any thought, she answered and allowed
him access. Their tongues mingled, and Jemma enjoyed the mix of strawberries
and wine she tasted from him. Tony stood her upright without breaking their
bond. His arms reached around behind her waist, and he bunched the material of
her dress in his hands, pressing her lithe form firmly against him. Jemma’s
arms snaked up around his neck, and she wound her fingers in his silky hair.
She released a small moan into his mouth, her body coming close to overload
from his kiss alone.

About the Author:
T. Sue VerSteeg was born and raised in the southeast central
region of Iowa in the small town of Grinnell. At the age of 21, she moved her
parents and family to the beautiful Ozarks of Missouri where they have since
made their homes. She has been blessed with the love of an adoring husband (who
is also her soul mate), two wonderful children, the best sister in the world
and truly amazing parents. Writing has always been a passion in her life as
most family members and friends can attest. Long letters, journals and short
stories can be found in nearly every drawer and filing cabinet in her home,
along with manuscripts and research documents. Her most sincere wish is that
you can find as much enjoyment in reading her stories as she did in the
creation of them.
Hope your Wednesday is going
wonderfully. My tip for the day is easy and useful.
How many of you wished you
could cut down on your Amazon link for your books? I know many times I wish I
could without using one of the many URL generators that shorten the length.
Sure, many of your marketing programs do like HootSuite, MarketMeSuite,
Tweetdeck and more.
What if you don’t have any of
those yet and want to make the URL smaller. There are two ways you can do it.
You can go through tinyurl.com and make yourself a new one through them. You
can also delete much of the Amazon link itself and still go to the purchase
page of your book.
Here are some examples from
my own books:
The link for my book, The
Harvester, looks something like this when you go to Amazon to copy it:
Now this is not something I
discovered for myself but from another author. D. Renee Bagby has a lot of
information on her site and even more when you talk to her. Go discover the
many wonderful things she has to offer at http://dreneebagby.com/.
