Book Blurb Friday: #40 KRAKEN
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,” generously offered for our creative blurbs by NaNoWriMo writer powerhouse, Sandra Davies at Lines of Communication. Sandra not only hit the 50,000 word mark, she exceeded it for a total of 78,185 and she’s still writing. Congratulations, Sandra! I’m especially pleased because Sandra told me her plot is born from blurbs she wrote for our very own Book Blurb Friday. So exciting!
Thanks again for this great photo, Sandra. My blurb follows.
It began in a Scandinavian village, unnoticed by all but the local fishermen. Their stories of strange lights under the sea and mammoth glowing creatures were ignored as tall tales.
Until the monsters came to feed.
At the end of a single day’s reign of terror every person in the little village is left for dead. The creatures return to the sea without a trace.
Lone survivor Elof Lindgren was just a boy when the creatures came. Now grown, Elof has financial backing, the best oceanographic technology available, and an obsession to find the creatures no matter the cost.
Born on an alien planet, the creatures exist in the bowels of the North Atlantic awaiting the signal that will free them once again. While Elof and his scientists race for the truth, the clock starts ticking on an alien invasion that will change the face of the Earth forever.
