Hosted by Writing In The Buff
Each week, Lisa from Writing in the Buff posts a new photo, which participants pretend is the cover of a fake book. We then write a 150-word blurb based on the photo that “is so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.” This week’s photo just screamed “YA paranormal romance” at me so here goes. (And I swear I didn’t start out with this idea in mind. It just happened as I was writing and I went with it.)
One heart pounds with the drum beat of young love. The other heart has been still for centuries….
When beautiful and sensitive Carmella moves to Sporks, Washington, she wonders if she’ll fit in at the local high school. But when she finds a red flower leaning against a tree in her backyard each morning, she suspects she already has a secret admirer. Could is possibly be the brooding but gorgeous Howard Sullen, even though he seems like he always has a raging eye infection? Or could it be the hunky, muscled Wakeup Plaque, who looks at her wolfishly? In this pulse-pounding tale of forbidden love, Bethany Flyer imagines a romance for the ages … as long as Carmella is willing take a bite out of life.
“Is this a joke? You really want me to write a blurb for this? I think I’ll contact my lawyer instead.” –Stephanie Meyer, author of Twilight and New Moon
