Book Blurb Friday #12

It’s Book Blurb Friday #12. Hosted by the Lisa of Writing in the Buff. Head to Lisa Ricard Claro’s blog for BBF directions. Write a book blurb jacket in 150 words based on the photo provided by Sandra Davies.

104 words. Is this my most words? Is this my worst review yet?

The Golden Horn

Obermoeller couldn’t believe the golden horn’s musical notes danced around her arousing feelings. She recognized all the other bronzed statues—Little Ricard who played the flute, her sister in the same position as herself—they always dressed alike. There was Old Man Davies bent over probably tired of listening to Ricard and sick of seeing Sam strut his stuff. Where were we? Why were we turned to bronze? Even the dolphins, and the babies. What was Sandra holding above her head? Why wasn’t the tiger bronze? Could the horn’s notes help her to move? Read The Golden Horn to find out what happened to those living in Claro.


  1. Yes! The Golden Horn will do it...just unbend enough to pick it up! Come on, you can do it...just. pick. it. up! Wow! Lynn I really can get into this one. Good job!

    P.S. There are no "Worse reviews!" Just remember that and keep going!

  2. You've obviously given the photo a lot of attention and written a thoroughly impelling explanation for what they're all doing here - AND you've picked up on the sinister ... and are obviously about to run with it.

  3. A woman of few words, but powerful words at that. There is something to be said for the ability to convey great meaning without a lot of fluff! Great job!

  4. You never give yourself enough credit...if you ever figure out how really talented you are the world better watch out! You rock! This is great. I love the names...obviously inspired. :) You've made excellent use of the photo and created a solid mystery. Great blurb!

  5. Hey Lynn,

    This is great! I want to find out the answers to those questions too...inquiring minds want to know. I loved the part about Sam strutting his stuff ... that is one reason why I didn't want him turned into real life in my story. It would just be too much, lol.

    You did a wonderful job. You are a great writer; believe in yourself, Chickie!

  6. The Golden Horn is a great title and I'd love to know the answers to all your questions. How about it??

  7. I'm impressed--you really picked up on a lot of details that I hadn't noticed. I had to enlarge and study the picture better! I like a blurb that generates a lot of questions, and yours sure does!
