Each week 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 book cover. My blurb follows.

What is happening to the spiders of the world? You may not like them, you may have severe arachnophobia, but the world cannot function without them. World renowned arachnologist Dr Steven Pyder has observed that arachnids are behaving in unusual ways, the most obvious to the public at large being the inability to spin a perfect web.
Have the spiders adapted to changes in the insect population or are the insects reacting to the spiders’ behaviour? Steve Pyder’s investigations take him deep into tropical forests, to deserts in Australia, to country gardens in the Home Counties and to the Great Plains of Nebraska.
What he discovers is intriguing, threatening and ultimately life-altering. The world is changing and there’s nothing mankind can do.
Read this book and shiver!
