The Bridge to Blivion


Imagine the above illustration is a book cover. Would this blurb attract you to buy the book?

Timmins Delaney
in collaboration with
Esme Minx.
(Maps by Mapomajik)

She has solved the mystery! But at what cost!
Since forever the bridge has been a puzzle.
It has led nowhere!
Now Susannah reaches the end and a new world opens up!
A highway to ......what?
Is the enigmatic stranger from her past or her future?
Or both?
Will she ever return home?
Does she even want to?

From The Clutterbuck Times: an intriguing flight of fancy with scientific reality woven through it. A mighty clever mix of fact and fiction that will stay in your mind for a long time.



You couldn't get much yellower than this!
It's just about as yellow as you please!
For sure this must be twitchy-whisker bliss!
Life inside a world that's made of cheese!
But when this little chap has had his fill
And he plans to leave to search for pastures new,
He won't get back to Mummy
Because of his bulging tummy!

And then, I wonder, what's he going to do?

Clever book blurb!

Lois Evensen said...

Cheesy is soooo cute. :)

Lynn said...

Loved the blurb - want to read more. Another book that needs to be written! And your cheesy little friend is so cute. Did you write that poem too?

Tammy said...

Speaking of enigmatic...this leaves me with just enough questions that I want to buy this existential-sounding read. The title and names are irresistible. As is your bulging-tummied friend!

Another sci-fi take-good job! But I think we all saw some type of love lost, or found, in the photo. Is it because we are all women and sentimental? I wonder...

I like your book blurb - I wouldn't care to go to Blivion :-))

Your blurb has a very haunting quality and raises far more questions than it answers. Guess that's what blurbs are supposed to do, but now I want that book!

"twitchy-whisker bliss" - what a wonderful image that paints.

Ah bless! That cheese photo is lovely. He'll have to nibble a bigger escape hole.

Calico Crazy said...

Such a fun and intriguing book blurb, one really does have to wonder what will happen.

Pat Wahler said...

Sounds like the makings of a romance! Nice job!


Lisa Ricard Claro said...

Great blurb, hinting at fantasy and perhaps romance and maybe even some sci-fi. Lots of possibilities with this one. Nice! And I love your poem!

I agree. This is intriguing. And you could combine several genres when writing this story.
