Book Blurb Friday #5: The Colors of Rose AND A-Z Challenge
Welcome to Book Blurb Friday and the first installment of the A-Z Challenge! Since I’m running them together my A-Z post is coming a tad early, but I figure it’s already April 1st in some parts of the world, so technically I’m right on schedule.
As part of the challenge (the brainchild of Arlee Bird at Tossing It Out) I’ll be posting every day (except Sundays) through the month of April, going through the alphabet and beginning April 1st with “A.” I’ve opted for a theme: Pawsitive Pondering. Were our pets able to talk they would offer sage advice, so every day through the month of April, one of my four-legged furries will offer a “Pawsitive Pondering” to make you smile. Here is the first:
See you tomorrow for day #2 of the A-Z Challenge: B is for Beauty.
Keep on reading for today’s Book Blurb Friday! If you’re new to this meme, give it a try. C’mon, be a waggy-tail! It’s fun!
TGIBBF! I can’t believe this is week five already. I’m having fun writing and reading the book blurbs, and I’m finding that sticking to the word count is easier as the weeks go by. If you’re new to Book Blurb Friday, please click the tab for details, located under the blog header. Here is my blurb to go with this week’s photo:
Bryan Harte sees the world in shades of gray. Born with monochromacy, a severe form of color blindness, he has never experienced a fiery sunset or cerulean summer sky. Bryan’s world is steeped in gray.Until now. . .Her name is Rose, and she is the only thing in Bryan’s world imbued with color. Her auburn hair, ruby lips and eyes of emerald green hold him in thrall from the moment he sees her sitting in the park. With his world a cloudy gray, the vibrant Rose becomes his obsession.Why is she different? What is it in her that allows him to see the green of her eyes and the red of her hair? When at last Bryan questions the anomaly, it is too late to run, too late to hide. It is too late to pretend he cannot see. . .the colors of Rose. (147 words)
