Fiction writers wanted!
« on: November 02, 2013, 05:46:51 AM »
Running a contest based on my newest book. My book would be no good without helping people flex their imagination, so let's have some fun with the story! Entry is completely free.

Details at...

Hang on ... I might be wrong here but it looks to me as though you are asking people to write the part of the story you cannot be bothered to write yourself?

Personally I find it a bit weird and would not enter your competition.

Lin, I seriously doubt  bpalmerlee is asking anyone to "to write the part of the story" for him. If you had taken the time to look, you would have known that he announced its release July 7, 2013.
 


So my new novel has been released. I wanted to thank you all for your advice on my cover; I used everything you folks said to make it what it is.

The Plotseer is available on amazon.com and should be available on kindle tomorrow. I was lucky enough to have it reviewed already. Below is a link to that review. Thanks for your help everybody.

Okay Alice thank you but it did give that first impression and in the link he provided I can't see any mention of dates of publication.

Haha. That story is finished, what I'd enjoy seeing is more stories from the same universe. The story living on without its author in the imagination of others. More of a theme of the book, not laziness on my part, I assure you  :P

Soooo, what you're doing is inviting "Fan Fiction"?

And how do we view this as anything other than self-promotion?

This is also not a way of selling my book so people can join in the competition. I honestly just want this to be fun. So if anybody on here wants to participate, I will GIVE you a digital copy of the book for free. Just message me with your email and I'll send it to you.

Nothing tricky, I just really love supporting imagination.

Writing is a negatively monetized love of mine. I never have made money and never expect to. Join or not the invite still stands :)
