It’s Book Blurb Friday #7. Check out Lisa’s blog for BBF directions. Using the photo, write a book blurb jacket under 150 words. This photo was taken by yours truly, which actually made writing this blurb harder for me. Go figure.
Here it is in 113 words (my lengthiest word count!):
Silence at Slide Rock
Park Ranger Obermoeller walked the hills of Slide Rock State Park for 35 years, never tiring the beauty of the once historic apple farm. Critters scurried about, birds sang all year round and Obermoeller took pleasure listening to it all. Never had the park been void of sound. That is until June 13, 2002 when even the rushing sound of water that made its way down the smooth red rocks—what the park was popular for—flowed without sound. What caused this mysterious phenomenon? Had it affected the entire world or just Slide Rock State Park? Read what Ranger Obermoeller discovered as she made her way down the eerily silent flow of water.
Note: My photograph was included in St. Louis Writers Guild’s photo of the month (July 2009) and you can read my little blurb that goes with the photo, if you want. Or check out the website of Slide Rock State Park located in Sedona, AZ.
