Friday, Book Blurb # 11



It's time for Sioux's Friday Book Blurb #11. This week I finally can join in again! It is only 150 words, but sometimes words nor time either one come along!  But loved this hat and had to work it!!!



Go to Sioux's page at http://siouxspage.blogspot.com for complete rules on how to participate and links to other writers' stories based on the photo. 





                                 Stetson on a Fence Post

Clarrisa didn’t know what had happened to her cowboy. Lines appeared around his mouth, his eyes lost their spark, and the bedroom had become a dark cavern with no light. Sander had known nothing but cows and prairie since he was a boy, but suddenly he was ready to hang up his Stetson and he wasn’t saying why. She had no clue why her husband was no longer interested in anything with the ranch, including her.


Finally in a last ditch effort to rodeo up her old cowboy, Clarrisa picked a night, put on her best fringe, and cocked her own cowboy hat to meet him at the front door. Tonight she WOULD get answers. Could she handle what she was going to hear? Was this the end of the their rodeo? What was really going on in Sander’s life?

Ohhhh, I want to know, I want to know! What is going on in Sander's life, that is. I want to see if Clarrisa can get him back in the saddle again! Oh Bookie, I love your writing. Susan

Claudia--I think you should work on this story--either as a short story or a novel.

I hope Sander doesn't have a little filly on the side!

This picture really struck a creative melody deep within you, Claudia!
And how did Sander respond?
A good story makes the reader ask for more, and this was excellent!
(Also, applause to Sioux for this excellent picture prompt. You two made quite a team this week!)

Okay, I want to know what is going to happen next! I love romances and am hoping for a happy ending!
