Road Trip Wednesday #63: Blurb It!

Welcome to our 63rd Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link in the comments - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This week's prompt:
Give a blurb for your favorite book or one of your own!
(And as a special bonus, we're featuring your links today instead of ours!)

(current as of 10:00 CST)


Next week’s topic:
If you could live within the universe of any book, which would you choose?
Amanda Hannah

Amanda grew up on a big farm in a small town with one stoplight, one school, and a handful of imaginary friends.She would’ve gone to college forever, but eight years and five majors tested her advisor’s patience. So she moved to Germany to explore creepy castles before landing in Spain where she’s perfecting her Flamenco.

  5. I went for a "blurb", as in the summary on the back of the book jacket, and of my own...hope I'm not stretching the definition too much!

  11. Well there were a lot of fun ways to do this, but I went for the one that was just plain hard work. (But it counts towards my query-work credits so I'll hopefully graduate query hell that much earlier). And it's here

  12. This was fun (mainly because I avoided the tough task of actually writing a back-of-the-book blurb).

  16. Is Kristin the only "official" who attempted this? Plus, I couldn't get her link to work.

    I'm enjoying seeing everyone's take on this challenge. Here's mine: http://angelicarjackson.blogspot.com/2011/01/rtw-blurbilicious.html
