Book Blurb for Lisa
After missing Saturday Centus last Saturday, not producing any great writing this week, and now facing the return of winter, it hasn't been an great week. But now it is time for Lisa's Friday Blurb...hey, some fun again. She has a newly designed badge and way to go Lisa...a tea pot is included! For full details, go to Lisa's blog (http://www.writinginthebuff.net/2011/03/book-blurb-friday-4-paranormal-passages.html) where she posts a picture as a prompt for the book blurb. Below is my effort!
Doors to Tomorrow
Would she? Should she? How could she?
Katie Plano wanted change in her life, but she was a coward. She’d spent her entire lifetime going through the right doors of life, making safe decisions, doing the expected. She’d earned her college degree, prudent and predictable in education, and taught harmless first graders. She’d married the track star, birthed a precocious child, drove a gas saver car, and jogged regularly. Now at 49, she felt as empty as a rain gauge in a Kansas July.
Cal, her accountant husband, didn’t abuse her, deprived her of nothing, but he was boring. While he never criticized her, he seemed to just assume she would be there after school and on weekends like the newspaper on the front porch. She knew Cal loved her, but she wanted to be IN love again.
Hand on the doorknob of change, Katie entered.
