Book Blurb Friday #20: Crossing the Mephisto Bridge AND Blog Friends AND 200!
Hello all! This has been an exciting week.
First, two of my critique partners and I were blessed with the visit of our blogger friend, Linda O’Connell of Write From the Heart. We’ve known Linda only through blogging (we live several states apart), but due to fortunate circumstances had the opportunity to meet in person. I can now say from first hand knowledge that Linda is a real lady and a true delight. Here we are, together for the first time:
In keeping with our Meet-the-Blogger-Friend theme, we’ll be meeting Becky Povich next week! Any more blogger friends heading to Atlanta? We’re on a roll!
It’s time for a Blog Giveaway Contest! I have officially arrived at 200 Followers, and I’d like to send out a huge THANK YOU. Details of the contest will be available here at Writing in the Buff next week, so please stay tuned!
And now on to this week’s 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 daughter, Christina. My book blurb follows:
Crossing the Mephisto BridgePiper Granger knows crossing the Mephisto Bridge into Abaddon is forbidden. Her parents will ground her forever if she’s caught. She knows, but doesn’t care. She left something and needs to get it back.Runaway Zach Markham can’t believe his good fortune when he uncovers an old coffee tin buried in the sand under the Mephisto Bridge. He hoped for a few dollars, but never expected this. Not in a million.Casper Pitt, denizen of Abaddon, is unsure who ripped him off: maybe his cousin, Dagg, tweaking and stupid; maybe the old biker, Vince Caduri, hoping to get back in the game. Or maybe that girl from the burbs who kept sticking her fancy nose where it didn’t belong.Pitt will hunt them all to find what’s his. He’ll give no quarter, show no mercy. And he’ll extract a deadly toll from any who dare to cross the Mephisto Bridge. (150 words)

Sorry I was late posting this evening. I realized last minute that we ran out of dog food, and I had to zip out to the store so my hairy darlings will have breakfast in the morning. Somehow in the course of events, I came home with a new cell phone. It’s my husband’s fault. Really.
Hope y’all can beat the heat this weekend. See you Monday!
