Backwards Book #2

Hey, guys! I’ve got another Backwards Book for you today.

If you don’t know how to participate, here are the rules:

  • I create a book cover and post it.
  • You write a summary based on the cover.
  • Post the summary in the comments.
  • If you like your story idea, write it!

Here’s the cover:

Stop reading, scroll straight to the comments, and type up a summary. When you’re done with that, come back up to the post to read my idea!

My summary:

We Were Strangers

A young man keeps popping up in Eden Pike’s life. She sees him at college, at her job, on the bus, skulking outside her apartment. Then one day, he disappears. The only sign that he ever existed is the note and photograph of him that Eden discovers in her mailbox. His last message draws Eden out of her sheltered life and thrusts her into a perilous quest to find him. And, as it turns out, the stranger isn’t the only one went missing . . . someone close to Eden’s heart has vanished as well.

I look forward to reading your summaries!

Backwards Book #1

Hey, guys! I’ve been brainstorming new features for my blog, and so far, I’ve come up with two things: Hobby Hero (which is currently a WIP; I’m hoping to team up with some other bloggers on it, so it’ll take a little longer) and Backwards Book — which is what this post is about!

Let me explain this to you. I’ll create a cover for a book, complete with a title, and post it. Then you can write a summary based on it (like what you would find on the back cover of a book) and post it in the comments. If you like your idea, then begin writing the story!

Are you ready for this? Here’s the first cover:

Are the wheels in your head turning? Stop reading, scroll straight to the comments, and type up a summary. When you’re done with that, come back up to the post to read my idea!

My summary:

The Summer of Silence

It’s the beginning of summer, but instead of hanging out with her best friend Dakota, Tessa must wave goodbye to him as he heads off to a three-week sleep-away camp in California. Tessa tries to keep in touch with him while he’s gone, but he won’t reply. And when Dakota doesn’t come back from camp, Tessa knows that something is seriously wrong. Determined to find her friend, Tessa sets off for Camp Stormgaze in California, where things aren’t quite right.

I look forward to reading your summaries!

And thirteen is said to be an unlucky number. Tsk, tsk.

P.S. I know it’s my turn for WordCrafters. Please be patient; with VBS going on, I wasn’t able to find the time to write my chapter. But I’ll get it up before I leave, OK?

Writing Prompt #11: An Apple Tree?

Wow — we’re on the 11th writing prompt already! I’ve got loads more in the works. :)

 If you write something inspired by Ms. AGdoll’s writing prompt, post it in the comments!

If I was going to continue this story (and who knows, maybe I will), I’d probably make it that they live in a world where the only food is kept by the government. So finding an apple tree would be a big deal.
