Ever notice that little passage describing a little of the novel at the back of the book? You can post on right here. Maybe this'll make people more interested in your novel.
Yes, I know I leeched this idea off somewhere...but hey, it's nice to have.
Include taglines, spoilers, WHATEVER! Anything to make your novel look good. Kapish?

hmm, I'm no good at this, how's this for a tagline?
Statistics show that more and more teenagers are getting pregnant each and every day, here is the story of one of those statistics.
When a boy meets a girl and itís love at first sight
A marriage will follow with a cradle close behind
And that is to many the family dream
But what happens when the mother is but seventeen?
:) good? no?

Interesting tag line...
A novel blurb would probably be (in my case, for Ragend) -
When Rafael Gianno ended his life, he expected to find sweet rest, the silent peace of Death. Instead, he is drawn into a violent and dangerous world were powerful beings called Necrosapiens born of tragedy patrol a brand new underworld, and he is immediately recruited to deal with an undead threat called Geists that feed on the lifespan of humans to exists. With a set new of supernatural abilities, and a strange anger inside destined never to die, Rafael thought he had it all figured out.
No one knew that the events about to occur actually had a deeper, and more devastating link to the universe, and all dimensions beside it...

That was pretty good :) We should hold a contest to see who came come up with the best most original tagline and/or blurb for their stories :)
P.S. I hate to be a grammar freak but in your last line instead of "have a deeper" it's "had a deeper" since you used "no one knew" before it.

Alright, "Me, My Past, and My Blood-Stained Sword", I choose you!

Johnathan Garvy is just looking for a little inspiration. The last movie he wrote was being completely pulverized by critics and he needed to redeem his name. Emilia Thine is just looking for a little quality. She pulverized the last movie she saw in her daily critic column. When an accidental blind date makes these two meet for the first time they don't know what they are doing. They start trying to see each other and get over all of the horrible things they've done to each other, in his words it's her demoralizing nearly every movie of his career since his first breakthrough, and i her words it's him making her sit through nearly a total of ten hours of cliched shit. Can these two opposites survive the gruesome realities of their differences in the grand city of New York?

//Ooh...sweet one, George! :D//
Here's a tagline for RagEnd:
"Deadliest of the Dead."
and for Wolfgang:
"Teenage agents, move aside. Dante and Damien are taking over..."
and finally for GuN Dru1d:
"Technology. Nature. Magic. Three Aspects of the Omniverse. Three powerful Factions. One grand meeting. One hell of a war."

For the hell of it, here is mine for "The Sewer"
When Jimmy and Paulie stumbled into the local sewer, they expected water, trash, and foul odors. What they found instead was far worse than a bad smell.
Thousands of ravenous, flesh eating sewer rats have taken refuge in the city's underbelly, and Jimmy and Paulie are on the menu.
Now the two friends must fight for their survival or die trying. After all, cannibals aren't the only creatures that feast on human flesh...

He stalks his prey in the darkness, forever hungry, never resting. He is eternal, an immortal, forever commanded by greater powers. He charts the tides of history, bending it to the will of his masters. He is the ultimate power that stands upon the Earth. He is invincible, undefeatable, unstoppable. Yet, he is no one.
My blurb for Blood, Power and Sin, which is under a lot of change in plot.
