Book Blurb Friday #23: The Loving House
Before I jump into Book Blurb Friday, I’d like to offer up a couple of links.
First, there is a blog contest you ought to check out. Karen at Write Now is celebrating 300 followers! Visit her blog by clicking HERE and sign up to win. There is a book and possibly chocolate involved. How can you go wrong? A book. And CHOCOLATE.
Second, several of you emailed me asking for a link to the article about cats on Prozac. Click HERE to read it. Sorry I didn’t have a direct link set up before. My brain was focused on the fact that I amused myself by writing about such a thing; it never occurred to me that you might actually want to read the article itself. Oops.
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 Kathy Matthews. My book blurb follows:
The Loving HouseThe Loving House is a bed and breakfast in the Outer Banks with a reputation for romance. When its owner, Rowena Loving, mentions a sale, Amy Peerham is ready to buy the old B&B: her parents met and married there.David Fields is a carpenter with a passion for restoring old Victorian houses, and he’s been dreaming of The Loving House since he was a kid. His parents met there, and he’s prepared to outbid anyone.When a hurricane threatens, Rowena sets a task for the adversaries: Move into the B&B as caretakers for the duration of the storm, after which a new owner will be named.David and Amy set aside their rivalry to face the storm and protect the property. And if Rowena has her way, The Loving House will not only survive the hurricane, it will live up to its reputation for romance. (146 words)
