Either "leave <place>" or "depart from <place>", me thinks. I also think you could drop "luxury" as that's stated in the previous sentence. Second "through" might also be redundant, depending on taste. Maybe "its" instead of "her"? Lastly, I think "is bearing" is a little clunky.

Note: I'm not a self-publishing goon and not at all familiar with the target audience of such works, so I have no clue what makes for a good blurb. I think it looks alright. Also, agreed, no blood.

I think the first one's better too, but just in case you're sticking with the second: Gare d'Lest is not a station (or French, for that matter) ;)

I know next to nothing of self-publishing and, outside of my home country, only slightly more about traditional publishing, but I'd suspect you're probably better off trying to get a short story or two published in an esteemed journal and then contacting agents - or skipping the former altogether - than you would be publishing your own works.

Again, don't take my word as gospel, but from what I know self-publishing isn't regarded very highly in more traditional circles.
