Great news for my writer pal, Josie Brown (IMPOSSIBLY TONGUE-TIED, TRUE HOLLYWOOD LIES):
THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN’S HANDBOOK–one of her book proposals which got great editor response but so far hasn’t received a publishing contract–now has second chance at getting one. It is one of the select few chosen to participate in PROJECT PUBLISH, an online contest put on by Simon & Schuster in conjunction with MediaPredict.com.
But in order to win the contest, viewers like you and I buy fake stock in the book they think should be published. Like me, I’m sure you’ll agree that THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN’S HANDBOOK should be the lucky winner.
Josie has created a funny heroine in Donna Stone, a soccer mom who also happens to be an assassin. Like all of us, she juggles several lives at once, which means she’s only half-adept at any of them.
Let’s bring Donna to life! Here’s how:
1. Register on MediaPredict.com, a free fantasy media stock market game. T
2. Then go to the webpage for THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN’S HANDBOOK. You’ll find it at this link (T: I’LL HAVE THIS FOR YOU TOMORROW) and download the pdf with the first chapter. (Trust me, I’ve read this book and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! you will LOVE it too).
3. Then, purchase the book’s stock with ALL your $5,000 in fake money. Simple, right?
Josie also has an ongoing website for Donna: www.housewifeassassinshandbook.com, where she’s keeping a daily diary, and household tips, recipes, and Assassin tricks of the trade. Those that of you who read the chapter can also enter Josie’s online weekly raffle for one of her previously published books, by answering a simple question.
Then. if she’s chosen as one of the five final books on September 17th, she’s putting everyone’s name she’s received into a hat, and raffle off an iPod shuffle.
This is a great way to resurrect a book that might otherwise not have been published. Thanks for your help!
As I said, I LOVE this book. So help a girl out and check out MediaPredict.com
