Book Blurb Friday #3
Haven't you ever wanted to be able to amass a collection of ideas for possible novels? Don't you have the need to hone your "pitching" skills? Wouldn't it be nice to practice your writing abilities in short bursts---and the inspiration is even provided for you? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you should check out Lisa Ricard Claro's new meme. You can do some pre-thinking, 'cause the photo is posted a week early so you can take a pondering gander.
You only have 150 words (or less) which does not include the title. After you post it on your blog, go to Lisa's friend, Mr. Linky, and add your blurb, along with reading everyone else's.
Here's my Book Blurb this Friday:
Ladling Up Your Life's Desires: The Parkview Grill
Sink into the leathery booth. Get comfortable. Kick your shoes off if you'd like. Check out the menu...And my recommendation? The meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
Something strange is being brewed in the stews and soups at this local eatery. Something strange overcomes the diners at the Parkview. Depending on what they order, their lives change. Forever.
Ask for the Chicken Caccitore? A long-lost love reappears. Fried fish and chips? An opportunity for an adventure arises. And order the daily special---which is always meatloaf? Your biggest worry is lifted from your shoulders.
Everyone is happy after a meal at the Parkview Grill. Their step is a little lighter when they leave. Their laughter...a bit more free.
That is, until a new cook is hired. Herman doesn't fit in with the rest of the cooks and waitresses. He's quiet. Aloof. And there's an unsettling glint in his eyes...(150 words)
