It's time to toot your own horn!

So..last Sunday I came up with something completely different to start this year off. Instead of promoting someone else's book, which is often what we prefer to do, I want everyone to toot their own horn. Like this:

I wrote a book called West of Paradise:

It's about this guy named Jack McCabe who gets the opportunity to go back in time. He jumps at it; it’s the adventure he always dreamed of - until he meets a beautiful but deadly train robber. It’s also about Katherine Kennedy who hopes a trip to the past will cure her ennui. She can't believe an ignorant bounty hunter has mistaken her for a criminal – until she sees the WANTED poster, which looks exactly like her. Neither of them can imagine how the past has a way of catching up with the present.

Set in the old west, this is a tale of mistaken identity, romance, and murder.

Why you might like it: You might like it if you like history, adventure, and a little romance.Oh, and it's not as racy as the cover might suggest...But there is kissing!

Now it's your turn. I'll take the first five people who email me (unicornbellsubmissions@gmail.com) with the above info about their book, including a cover pic and link to buy, and I'll help you toot your own horn.
Please limit 'what it's about' and 'why you might like it' to 100 words max.

Yay for tooting your own horn!

It's really something I'm terrible at, unless it's about how many donuts I happened to eat that day. But I am trying to improve, however.

West of Paradise is a book I'm hoping to read this year.

Chris, good luck with your new book! I'm still working on my cover art so I can't be one of the five.

Great idea. I hope you get many submissions.
