Book Blurb Friday #10 – New Eden
I’d like to offer a huge ** THANK YOU!** to everyone participating in Book Blurb Friday. Memes sprout from the blogging landscape like wildflowers in a meadow, and I’m so pleased that you’ve picked mine to be part of your writing bouquet.
If you’re new to Book Blurb Friday, please click HERE for information, or click the tab under the blog header. In a nutshell:
Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.
The photo for this week’s “book cover” (compliments of Becky Povich) which I posted last BBF disappeared from my blog. It shows up in edit mode, but not on the actual post. I’ve adjusted it a tad and it looks okay on my computer (the photo credit mysteriously expanded, but I figured Becky wouldn’t complain about that!), but if you have trouble viewing it, please let me know and I’ll either re-post or email it to you–how’s that for service?! Here is the photo (I hope) and my 150-words-or-less blurb to go with it:
New EdenSpencer Kingston, proclaimed the Messiah by his followers, has built New Eden—a secure compound on two-hundred acres of land near Montana’s Flathead Valley.Reporter Dana Lee has personal reasons for infiltrating the compound. Pretending to be a convert, she moves to New Eden and volunteers for clerical duties in Kingston’s office, searching for proof of his deceit. But as her relationship with the spiritual leader grows into friendship, she witnesses the resurrection of a dead child and an angelic apparition. Are these miracles, or an elaborate hoax?New Eden falls under government scrutiny, and Dana recognizes her unique position to either help or hurt the controversial Kingston. When disaster erupts, she is caught in a web of her own making, forced to either acknowledge Kingston’s authenticity or declare him a fraud. With proof of neither, she can rely on nothing more than her own questioning heart. (147 words)
If you are participating in Book Blurb Friday, please add your name and URL to Mr. Linky so others may enjoy your blurb. (Please do not add your link if you are not sharing a blurb. It isn’t fair to those who have taken the time to do so, and your link will be removed.) For a gander at next week’s photo, please scroll down.
