Write Yr Own Blurb! Or, The Blurblr Is Under the Weather
One of the dangers of being The Blurblr, it turns out, is that you might get strep throat. When you’re sick, you just can’t push your mind where you want it to go. I will say that it’s been a pleasure doing this column for the past month and I look forward to many more Blurblrs. In fact, a few surprises are already on hold in Sublurbia.
But I will leave you with this challenge. Neither Mary Ruefle’s Trances of the Blast (Wave Books) nor the anthology published by Les Figues, I’ll Drown My Book, have anything in the way of blurbs on their back covers. What would you write as a blurb for these books, in 75-100 words? Put the blurbs in the comments section. Let’s see what you’ve got!
