Look at the photo below. That is the cover of your book. You choose the genre. Is it a mystery? Is it a coffee table art book? You decide.
Write an enticing blurb--150 words or less. (The title doesn't count in the word count.) Blurbs are those enticing bits that prod you into buying the book. Sometimes they're on the back cover of the book. Sometimes they're on the inside front cover. What they always try to do is lure you into purchasing the book.
Lisa Ricard Claro was the original creator of this writing challenge. Currently, she's super busy. She and her hubster sold their house in Georgia and are setting up their new house in Florida, and knowing her, she's also probably busy writing her 72nd novel.
Include your blurb in a blog post. Include a link to this post. Also, link your post to Mr. Linky. Mr. Linky is easy. If you've never done it, you'll be impressed with how simple he is. And then, check out the other blurb(s). It's interesting to see the different directions writers take, given the same photo.
Here's the book cover, along with my blurb:
A Scary, Hairy Past
Mr. R’s about to become Dr. R, he’s about to get married … the only thing that might stand in his way of enjoying those transformations is a murky (and hairy) past.
His patients and his hospital supervisors adore the handsome Mr. R. His dedication and attention to details, his ability to use humor to put patients at ease make him popular with the nurses. His love of life, his determination, the bond he has with his family made the love of his life agree to marry him.
Now the wedding’s eight days away. His residency is just months away. Unfortunately, someone is threatening to leak damaging photos to the newspapers.
The pictures made his mother fall to the floor in a heap, horrified. If anyone else sees these photographs from his crazy past, will her son get kicked out of med school? Will he get abandoned at the altar? (150 words)
And for those writers who love to work ahead, here's the photo for next week:
