A Non-Profit Group of Writers Helping Writers
A picture is worth a hundred words.
Here's the picture:
It's a picture of two people seemingly out for a fun drive and somehow things have gone terribly wrong. The ominous title the author gave this 1939 story seems to suggest even more danger but we don't know.
That's where you come in.
Your challenge: Write an exciting - or humorous - blurb for this book that will make readers want to buy it. Tell us how this handsome couple came to be in the situation we see above. Things to ponder: Why is he in a white tuxedo? Where did she get that sexy dress? Does he really think she's that good a driver?? Tell us what events got them on the road and what dangers might loom ahead. And (if you're good - we mean really good) we'll award ten bonus points if you include the seven magic words that will have us racing for the book store check-out stand. (Everyone's going to be so embarrassed that they didn't think of it.)
