Something New - Book Blurb Friday #1

My blogger friend, Lisa Ricard Claro - Writing in the Buff - is holding a weekly writing challenge. In 150 words or less, create a title for a book along with a blurb - Lisa provides the photo.

So here is my lame attempt (and in 44 words):

Title: Be Your Own Private ‘Eye’

Why pay someone big bucks to spy for you? Learn what the professional private investigators know. Obermoeller shares her 25 years of experience that will save you money but gives you the same results. And see if someone might be spying on you!

  1. Tee hee!! I'm loving this!

    My daughter is tickled, too. That pic is one of hers (she's a budding photographer, among other things) and she thinks it's cool that her eye...it is...literally...her eye (yikes! I sound like Captain Kirk!) is making the rounds with so many different stories.

    Thanks for playing along!

  10. I didn't realize till I read this that it looks like she is looking through a keyhole! You're much more observant than I am. Nice!

  11. Spying came to my mind too, but the eye itself scared me more-lol! I had a hard time stretching mine out to around the 140 mark too-I have to start looking at some book jackets...

  12. I wanted to do something with a peephole, and what that green eye saw when they spied on someone, but couldn't come up with anything, so I did something different. I'm glad you went where I could not...
