Back of the Book Blurb #83 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux offers this challenge.

She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title). The genre is wide-open.
Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post. Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs.  You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)

The Writer

Writing was her life and no one could stop her. When Anya decided to go to school and learn to read and write, the boys in her village made fun of her. When her friends were getting married, men left her alone. She couldn’t go out in public without men harassing her. But nothing would make Anya give up her writing. Before long she was publishing books and making lots of money. She could help her parents and siblings move to a different village and have a better life. Not once did she ever regret writing! Now she was getting death threats and unless she stopped writing, someone would hurt her. Instead of running scared, Anya had her strong words tattooed on her face. Then she posted pictures of her face along with her rifle letting the madman know that she was ready to take him on! (147 words)

That's great! I never would have thought of that scenario. In fact, I thought of NOTHING this week. I didn't even know that was a GUN in the picture!
