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,” offered for our creative blurbs by the talented and generous Sioux Roslawski at Sioux’s Page.

The Riley Factor
(149 words)

Adorable Riley begins appearing on bridge overpasses, billboards, and even in urban graffiti.  The message is always: “Riley was here.”  Where did Riley come from? What does it mean?
Kate Truhorn works at the private think tank, RWH Corporation.  After discovering a secret project named the Riley Factor pertaining to subliminal messaging, she digs for information and learns that the researchers connected to the project are either missing or dead.
Kate confides in Benton Vaughn, her boyfriend and RWH corporate attorney who promises to investigate, but soon Kate suspects she is being followed and her phone is tapped.  Unsure who to trust, Kate goes into hiding, still hunting clues. But whoever is behind the Riley project wants Kate stopped, and soon she’s running for her life.  But she won’t stop until she knows  . . . what is the Riley Factor, and why must people die to protect it?

Here is our “book cover” for next week’s Book Blurb Friday #60, provided by my daughter, Christina, who last week received notification of acceptance to SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design) along with an academic scholarship. Congratulations Christy! She’s working on her portfolio now and hopes to earn an artistic honors scholarship as well.
