Book Blurb #45: Living Her Dreams
Welcome again to Book Blurb Friday. If you’re a newbie, here’s the scoop so you understand what follows. 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 Tammy Goodsell of Message in a Bloggle. My blurb is below.
Journalist Annabeth Morton saw it in her dreams, night after night. The house shimmered through leaves, a siren calling her name.While doing research Annabeth finds a drawing of a plantation house in North Carolina. Recognizing it from her dreams she digs for information and discovers the original house burned to the ground during Sherman’s march through the South. Rebuilt on the original site, the house is now a bed and breakfast. Annabeth visits, determined to exorcize the dream once and for all.The longer she stays the more realistic her dreams become. Annabeth is drawn in deeper as the dreams become more vivid, an eerie bend in reality making the line between dream and wakefulness fine indeed. People and events from both worlds meld until Annabeth is left grasping for the truth. Because if she’s not living her dreams, then reality is certain madness.
