It's Book Blurb Friday Again! (And It's Still Thursday)
Write a book jacket blurb, in 150 words or less, that is so irresistable, the reader will be compelled to read the book.
This is the invitation that Lisa Ricard Claro extends to us every week. She gives us a photo to use for inspiration. We have to squeeze out the imagination.
Go to Lisa's blog to participate in this meme. After you write your blurb, link it to the rest of the blurbs, read the other ones, and comment on them.
Here is the photo and my take on the picture:
It was not just chocolate. This was magical chocolate. She knew that if the spell’s words were correctly recited while tapping on the French chocolate bar three times, she’d be spirited back to Pau, a lovely city nestled at the foot of the Pyrenees. And, a delectable companion would simultaneously materialize…
“You’re banished, Binoche! You’re banished, Binoche! You’re banished, Binoche!” while she drummed three taps on the bar.
Suddenly, Johnny Depp appeared. He had his guitar, his hair was long but—thankfully—he’d lost the eyeliner of his pirate days, and he was beckoning her to the river…so they could take a trip together on his houseboat.
Will this cougar be able to keep Depp entranced? Will they have enough chocolate to sustain them during their voyage? And will Juliette Binoche chew through her restraints, spoiling the romantic romp these two have conjured up?
Immerse yourself in this delicious tale… (exactly 150 words)
(This movie, if you have not ever seen it, is charming. The scenery is breath-taking. And the countryside is not bad to look at, either!)
And welcome to my newest followers. I did not think I could break the "60" mark, but unbelievably, a few more pitying people fell into my web and are now trapped!
Thanks for joining, Matthewskl. I am not sure if I welcomed you earlier--I apologize--and if you have a blog, please let me know and I will provide a link.
Heaven and Marinela Reka---thanks for checking out my blog. The same...if you have a blog, send the address my way, and I'll try to send new readers your way.
Dorothy Evans is also a new follower. She lives in England (I already dislike her intensely) and has a wonderful blog (Dorothy's blog). If you'd like to read a clever post on whether writing is an "art" or a "craft," go here. Dorothy--thanks for becoming a follower.
