Book Blurb 3, March 18, In Vegas

What Happens in Vegas
by Kathy Matthews
    Harry visited Vegas every year, and always had a good time. He had really been looking forward to this vacation, but his boss kept postponing it. Finally, it was scheduled, for July. Las Vegas in July!
    When the lights began to shimmer and shake before his eyes, Harry thought the heat was getting to him.
    He’d gone into a nice, cool restaurant with a buffet counter and a pool table. He would eat, rest, then while away the afternoon playing pool, if only the lights would stop wobbling, and if only he would stop wobbling, too.
   The next thing he knew, he was on the floor, waking up. EMTs were fussing around him and, standing behind the EMTs, he saw Sarah Seidel and Catherine Willows of CSI. Had there been a crime?
    Author Kathy Matthews, photographer, cinematographer, and criminologist, tells us a taut tale of Harry and what really happened.

Kay---I liked that you brought in CSI characters. I wish I would have thought of that. (It's one of my favorites.)

I see you're a lover of Goldens. Me, too. But, did you know there IS something better than a Golden?

TWO Goldens! (ha)

Thanks for playing along with Lisa's meme. It's fun to read everyone's every unique takes...

Hi Kay - Kathy will love the expanded use of her name! Great blurb. The integration of CSI characters made me laugh, and I wonder if Harry is dreaming and if so, what prompted his hallucinations. Nice job!

Ms.Daisy said...

Very clever! I liked the way you incorporated the photographer into your blurb! Good one!

Nice book blurb and I like how you used Kathy's name as the author!

I have not been to Las Vegas in July, and could not imagine the heat.

In May, we will have a sort of gathering of some Alumni from all over, so far 50 had signed up, and I am one of the members of the planning committee.

Oh wow! I just heard from Wil that you spent time together near the windmills. That is just so very amazing! I love it! I hope you're able to see tulips at Keukenhof since I know Wil lives nearby the gardens.
