Diane Gaston gave a talk at last month’s Virginia Romance Writer meeting. She said that she writes her blurb and her synopsis before she starts writing the actual book.

I’d love opinions on the following three attempts. Which is your favorite? How would you change any of them?
When Nina finds candylicious liquid vials in their grandmother’s storage room, Nathan warns her not to drink them. His advice ignored, he’s forced to follow Nina to Cloud Seven, a place where he and his twin are given a chance to change history.
Their task isn’t easy. They must survive the wilds of Papua New Guinea as they attempt to rescue a cancer-curing plant from oblivion. Along the way, they find out that fierce cannibals and malaria are the least of their worries…
A routine stay at their grandmother’s apartment leads Nathan and Nina to a place they never dreamed existed. They’re given a choice: return to home and safety, or stay … and change the world by rewriting history. Of course, if they stay, there are no guarantees they’ll ever get back home…
1963: A scientist dies in the wilds of Papua New Guinea at the hands of fierce cannibals. The valuable plant he discovered is lost forever … or is it?
2011: Nathan and Nina Christy never dreamed that snooping in their grandmother’s storage room would get them transported to Cloud Seven. They’re given the chance to go back in time and change history. But at what cost?
