Book Blurb Friday #57: Provenance

Posted on Mar 29, 2012 by Lisa Ricard Claro   No Comments Yet | Posted in Book Blurb Friday

For those of you who asked what happened to my Wednesday post, the answer is simple. I never wrote it! On Monday I went one way and my back went the other, and I’ve spent the ensuing days recuperating.  I’m still not 100%, but definitely feeling better than earlier in the week.  And so . . .


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,” offered for our creative blurbs by the multi-talented Sandra Davies at Lines of Communication.  My blurb follows:

(150 words)
Artist Simone Ravenelle is declared legally dead six months after her plane goes off the grid. Simone soon becomes, posthumously, the darling of the art world, thanks to the antics of:
Francisco Delicioso — owner of Los Artistas Restaurante, he will display only Simone’s paintings in his famous Hollywood restaurant.
Mitzi Boobreeze — sexy star of TV’s #1 show, “The Real Hookers of Hollywood,” she battles over the purchase of the painting titled “Easy Breezy,” believing herself to be Simone’s inspiration.
Horace Henchman — US Senator who briefly dated Simone; intends to secretly sell her artwork to fund his presidential campaign.
As art collectors vie for the works of Simone Ravenelle, Simone herself relaxes incognito in an Italian villa, intending to prove an artist needn’t be dead to achieve fame. But not everyone is pleased with her reappearance, and Simone faces the grim reality that she may be worth more dead than alive.
To be sure that others can read your blurb, please put your name and link in Mr. Linky, below, if you are participating in Book Blurb Friday. If you have no blurb to share, please do not install a link. It will be treated as spam and removed. Thanks.
