Book Blurb Friday #3 A Trick of the Light?

This meme is hosted by Lisa Ricard Claro at ‘Writing in the Buff’ J

Every Thursday evening she posts a photo that could be the cover of a book. The aim is to:
‘Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.’

Here is this week's picture followed by my blurb.

A Trick of the Light?

Something odd has happened to Tanya Williams.

When she first sees the coloured lights bending Tanya assumes that her overtired mind is playing tricks.

As the days go by the realisation dawns that she is seeing a hidden dimension to everyday life.  She is curious rather than frightened and determines to investigate.

Anxious to allay the suspicions of her family and colleagues that she is losing her mind she calls an old friend, physicist Bill Myers, known for his unique approach to problems.

What he discovers and how it affects him will have a lasting influence on both their lives.

(100 words, excluding the title)

  5. Hi,

    Your book really catches my attention and I would definitely read it. I don't want to sound weird, but some of that is happening to me now. (Not with lights, but what I am seeing in some of my photos.) You did a great job, and thanks for the shout-out on my picture

    Take care,

    Kathy
