Now from my authorial vantage point, I collect manifold examples of the best (IMHO) I can find in the context of writing on every level: first lines, loglines, online descriptions, character names, places of interest, relationship articles, magazine models who seem to have a story to tell, fantastic quotes as themes, wonderfully emotive quotes as writing prompts, great cover art, yada, yada, yada.
So, in recent My Book Cave offerings, I found two brilliant book descriptions that ended with a zinger. Now I've seen great ones in BookBub's newsletters too and elsewhere, and this "zinger" version isn't the only type I adore. However, these two came almost back-to-back, if memory serves. And I just have to share them with you. If you click on their links fast enough, they both may still be free. I love both covers too.

|By Andrea Domanski|
|Once a normal teenage girl, now a modern-day Amazon warrior. Add in a bunch of kick-butt preternaturals, gods, and demigods, along with a secret government agency formed to keep them all in check, and what have you got? The worst birthday ever!|
