Book Blurb #28: The Dumpster Genie
Welcome to Book Blurb Friday, where 150 words must sell your story.
If you are new to this blog, please click HERE or click the tab under the blog header for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme. This is the shortened, abridged version:
Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.
Below is this week’s “book cover,” generously offered for our creative blurbs by my son Joey. My book blurb follows:
Homeless drunkard Otis Figg is pretty sure the dumpster graffiti isn’t really talking to him. He recognizes a hallucination—which he dubs the Dumpster Genie—when he sees it.But what happens when the predictions of the Dumpster Genie come true? Like the collision of two city buses and a local preacher caught inflagrante delicto with the mayor’s wife behind the Dairy Delight?All Otis wants when he dishes to a reporter is money for hooch; he lands in the national spotlight instead.Otis is unprepared for the flood of people, from down-and-outs to up-and-comings (and some already-theres), who want their futures predicted. But the Dumpster Genie only talks to Otis, making Otis the most reluctant—and petulant—prophet of all time.The Dumpster Genie is a fun romp that pokes fun at the national media and reality T.V. Read it only if you aren’t afraid to laugh yourself!

Here is our “book cover” for next week’s Book Blurb Friday #29, graciously provided by Kay Davies.
This is quite different from any of the other “book covers” we’ve had. Thanks Kay!
