Book Blurb Friday - Life Blood

First of all - apologies for my slightly unexpected absence. I'll share more on that tomorrow.
Thank you to those of you who were concerned.

Now, on with the show ...


The lovely Lisa at Writing in the Buff hosts Book Blurb Friday. Each week Lisa posts a pretend book cover to fire our imaginations. Our task is to write the book blurb for the back cover in 150 words or less.

Life Blood

Every millennium, a single drop of the Goddess’s blood falls to the ground, and from it, grows one blood red bloom that will grant it’s finder a thousand years of immortality.

Now, deep in the Kellmar Forest, the bloom summons the favoured few who are sensitive to its sweet call, but they must hurry; the bloom will wither in just seven days.

Amuk wants a cure for his dying sister

Jorran wants fabulous wealth

Maya wants to find true love

King Varik wants to conquer the world

Kari just wants to be happy.

Kellmar Forest is a dark and forbidding place that threatens to destroy them all, unless they can learn to work together. Who will achieve their heart’s desire? What is the secret that will change everything?

128 words.

... and yes, I do know what the secret is, and who it is that achieves their heart's desire!

Come and join in! Writing in the Buff


  1. Awesome blurb! It sounds like a great story--and now I want to know who finds it!

  2. Sounds like a compelling read. Your last post seemed to suggest a scehduled absence, glad you're back. Hope all is well :O)

  3. Oooh I like the power of this flower!!! Wonderful blurb, thank you! Glad you are ok! Take care

  4. LOL - "Going Away" was the title of my supposed book for last weeks book blurb Friday! :)

  5. Nice to see you back. :) Love the blurb. I can see this as a movie. Will you share who wins his/her heart's desire?

    If you have a moment, please come back to my blog to feed Mr. Linky so your name/link is available to others who might want to read your wonderful blurb.

  6. GGGRrrrrrr!!! Who? How? Why? This is fantastic....I want to read 'the rest of the story!'

  7. Wonderful blurb, very intreguing. Hope everythings okay. =)

  8. I want to know who got it! You've hooked me Dominic!

  9. Dom, this is a great story. You really must write this book now :-) I'd read it. I love the competition between the people who have to cooperate with eachother.

  10. I agree with Tony - nice job.

  11. Oh, this is splendid - I HAVE to read this, which means you HAVE to write it!

  12. Intriguing Dominic. You caught my interest right away. The power of that flower.

  13. I love how you have all the characters in opposition as they search for the single bloom. The suspense is already built up in the blurb! (I took a more light-hearted approach...)

  14. This was well done! You have clearly given this alot of thought. I like what the petals represent.

  15. Tell us! Tell us!!! You are so mean to taunt us like this. If this book isn't already written, please stop the torture and do so.

  16. very cool! i like it! it flows really well and has certainly sucked me in! i'm intrigued!

  17. What a great blurb, you really made me want to read the book.
