Book Blurb Friday – It’s a Go!
In case you missed my initial post on this original meme, here’s a recap:
Every Thursday evening I’ll post a photo that we’ll pretend is the cover of a book. In 150 words or less (length of the average book blurb) write the blurb that you think belongs on the back of the book. You create the story, decide the genre, fiction or non, etc. You’ll post your blurb on your site with a link from/to this one so others can find you or come here to participate.
The goal: Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.
The above photo is our first Book Blurb “book cover.” Please do not post anything yet—our kickoff date is next week, Friday, March 4th. I posted the picture now so we’ll all have a week to ponder our blurb.
On Thursday evening next week I’ll re-post the above photo with my own book blurb of 150 words or less, as well as a Mr. Linky widget where you can leave a link back to your blog. I will also post a new “book cover” picture to be inspiration for the subsequent Book Blurb Friday. Please post your book blurb on your blog next Friday, March 4th along with the photo above and a link back here so your readers will have the opportunity to link to the book blurbs of other participants, or perhaps join in the book blurb fun. (Don’t forget to enter your name in Mr. Linky after you post so others can link back to you!)
If you already participate in Microfiction Monday, hosted by Susan at Stony River, then you are familiar with how this works. If you are new to the meme game, please feel free to post your questions in the comment section here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll respond straightaway.
That’s it! I hope Book Blurb Friday will be fun for everyone and generate ooh-gobs of story ideas for each of us. Thanks for playing along. You have a whole week to write your Book Blurb (based on the above “book cover” photo) for the official kick-off date, Friday, March 4th.
Til next time –
