Working on a Book Tagline #Paranormal

It’s WIP (i.e., work in progress) Wednesday …

I thought I had my tagline for the book I’m publishing in the fall. It’s called Midnight Magic, A Ghost and Abby Mystery and the tagline was:

Maybe having a Viking ghost for a boyfriend isn’t such a good idea …

It worked fine until I decided that I might, just might, put this manuscript in Kindle Scout, the contest Amazon runs. Even though the chances of winning and getting a wonderful publishing contract with them is small, the exposure is great.

But the problem is the contest stipulates taglines must be no more than 45 characters. So now I’m stuck. Totally tongue tied.

I’ve come up with the following so far:

  1. At the stroke of twelve anything can happen..
  2. Beware the stroke of twelve …

But I’m not loving either. Any suggestions?

The eclectic crew of ghosts that haunt her head spill onto the page in two series: The Gambling Ghosts and The Ghost & Abby Mysteries. A Viking with existential issues, a broken hearted Highlander, a Casanova man-witch and a Pirate with a secret are just a few of the males her strong heroines encounter in tales of fantasy, adventure and romance. A firm believer in the magic of our everyday lives, Jo-Ann loves watching sunrises, walking beaches near her home in the Pacific Northwest and reading by the fire.
