Blurbs for saleApr 18 2012

Adam Mansbach will blurb your novel, but it's gonna cost you. Here's part of his price list:

You live in one of the following neighborhoods: Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens, Williamsburg. (+$150)

You claim to be friends with a friend of mine, but that friend of mine hates you. (+$100)

The word after the gerund in your two-word title is a proper noun masquerading as a regular noun, i.e. "Losing Ground," a novel about a man named Peter Ground. (+$250)

Your novel is a retelling of another novel from the perspective of a minor character, a piece of furniture, or a magical being who did not appear in the original. (+$275)

I literally LOL'd (LLOL?) at the last line. (via the blurb-worthy @tadfriend)
