How many bad blurbs does it take to change a light bulb?

“Inspiring.” “Illuminating.” “I was paid to say this.”

All the world needed was a little light, and the right blurb to change the bulb.

John Doe’s blurb is a humble one, but it has big dreams. Little does it know its world is about to change forever. When the light goes out, it knows what it has to do.

At first it can’t find a new bulb, but a friendly tagline shows it where to find a box of them. Together they will ascend a stepladder and conquer the unknown. But when they find out the switch was never turned off, will they react in time?

Join the blurb as it quests to save the world from darkness with the help of a tagline, a byline, a sales pitch, and the wise old Oxford comma. Can one blurb light up the world?

How Many Bad Blurbs is a page-turning tour de force from John Doe, bestseller in his mom’s quilting group, sure to delight fans of Jack Handey, Garfield, Frank Miller, bacon, and J. R. R. Tolkien. A heartwarming tale with unexpected twists and suspense, this book will leave you feeling breathless as a blurb and its neighbors discover the power of friendship.

    Hey Doc! (That’s my nickname for you–the blurb Doc!) I still suck something awful at blurbs, so I was wondering if you can give us prawns some killer examples of blurbs that DO work? Cheers, Doc! :)

      I’ve done quite a few on kboards, but I’d probably want to get permission from the authors involved. (Too bad kboards’ search seems to be broken since the forum update, or it’d be easier to find those threads.)
