Was asked by an interviewer to describe Rosehead in three words, and I thought, hmmm, I can describe all my books in three words, which is quite often a challenge.
SIREN SUICIDES: Man hunts sirens.
ROSEHEAD: Roses eat people.
IRKADURA: Girl escapes beasts.
THE BADLINGS: Book punishes kids.
TUBE: Train murders ballerinas.
JANNA: Woman castrates rapists.
MARQUIS AND PLATO: Cat befriends pigeon.
CUPID: Librarian discovers sex.
SEAMSTRESS: Seamstress sews people.
It’s a fascinating exercise. You can see how ROSEHEAD stands out, and then TUBE, and JANNA, and even MARQUIS AND PLATO and SEAMSTRESS, because they mix incompatible ideas. I have only written the first 4 books you see on the list (in the process of writing the 5th one), and of them ROSEHEAD is the best-selling so far, and TUBE as a draft has a lot of interest from my readers.
Maybe that’s what I should do in the future, write out new book ideas in three words to see how they might fare.
