Book Blurb Friday! This is where Lisa Ricard Claro, from Writing in the Buff, posts a picture meant to serve as a fictional book cover. It's your job to write a blurb about the book in 150 words or less to entice a prospective reader. Are you up to the challenge? Here is this week's picture and my story:
The dilapidated old house was left to Deborah in the will, and though Deborah’s husband had been in the attic earlier declaring it unfit for man or beast, she had to see for herself.
Deborah’s husband was right in some aspects-the thick layer of dust and cobwebs indicated years of neglect, and trash was scattered amid the boxes on the rotted wooden floorboards. But as she started rummaging through the bits and pieces of her grandmother’s life, she came across a rusted typewriter and a box filled with what looked like the makings of a novel.
Curiosity more than anything made Deborah sit down to read-she never knew her grandmother could write. But as the words began flowing into Deborah’s head, the story about kings and queens seemed to come to life, and Deborah soon found that she too was a part of the story… (145 words)
This picture was really interesting so I can't wait to see what everyone wrote-unfortunately it's almost 12:30 AM so I will stop by tomorrow!
