Well, it took weeks of work, and input from several folks, but I finally have some back cover copy for Training the Trainer that I like enough to actually put on the cover (and the Amazon product page). Here it is:
From the author of BAKER’S DOZEN and BUTT STUFF comes a story about teaching yourself to make the best of things…
Whether it’s training your dog or training your body, Grace Wright can help you reach your goals. But when it comes to romance, this trainer is having trouble getting it done, especially now that she’s making her first forays into BDSM.
When Grace meets Tim, a polyamorous married man who loves spanking, she thinks she’s found what she needs. They are compatible in so many ways, yet something’s still missing for Grace. The chemistry she’s looking for just isn’t there.
Grace starts to post personal ads, but almost all the responses are dick pics and unsuitable candidates. Then Tim introduces her to his friend Brian, and despite Brian being married (and polyamorous) too, there’s just something about him that pushes Grace’s buttons. He’s dominant, confident, and good at what he does — and his wife’s not bad either. He might not be perfect, but is he perfect for Grace?
Maybe she just needs a little more training…
“JJ Rose is the only spanking author I read!” -Linda Mercury, author of the Blood Wings trilogy
Just two questions:
- I used an ellipsis at the end of the intro paragraph, and again at the end of the last paragraph. Does that bother anyone? Or is it safe to leave it as-is?
- The last line — should it be “Or maybe she just needs a little more training…”? I like it both ways.
Also: I commissioned a cover. I’m using someone different this time and I’m looking forward to seeing what she comes up with.
