If you haven’t yet entered my blog contest, click HERE for full details. You have until tomorrow at midnight to enter. Winners will be announced here on Monday.
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 aspiring photographer daughter, Christina. My book blurb follows:
Azure Balew has two goals: star in the high school play and date Stan Finkelstein, president of the chess club.With her high IQ and mile-wide stubborn streak, both should be attainable. But Azure’s competition is the popular beauty Felicia Fairburn; and Stan hasn’t talked to Azure since she cleaned his clock at the state chess championship.Further complicating Azure’s life: her mother is campaigning to abolish school football, her father is dressing in a gorilla suit to advertise his used car business, and her brother, Doobie, keeps getting arrested for indecent exposure at the local mall.Azure has an uphill climb on her way to senior stardom. She has to shake her family’s nutty reputation, best the catty Felicia, and convince Stan that he’s man enough to handle a girl smarter than he is. Fortunately, Azure’s got big plans brewing behind those brilliant baby blues. (147 words)
