Ready, Set … GO!!


I’m going to do something different and hopefully fun  beginning today, and judging on the response, may keep doing for several Wednesdays to come.

Have you ever wanted to help someone write a book? Maybe you are writing a book and you’ve reached spots you’re having difficulty writing, or maybe you need some help to make it better.  That’s where I am right now and I’m hoping you guys can help.  Aaand, when “Ready, Set … Go!” is over, keep your eyes peeled to my monthly newsletter ’cause I’ll be giving away something special to one awesome participant.

Ok, so here’s the deal-e-o.  I have a character in my YA epic fantasy, The Chronicles of Fallhollow trilogy, whose name is Eric. He’s an 18-year-old squire from another world. In the second installment of my trilogy, he’s been removed from his very medieval-esque environment and plunked down in the quaint, mountain town of Havendale, Tennessee.  He knows nothing of our ways here and things like refrigerators, cars and airplanes are mind-blowing.

As I’m reading through my manuscript, I’ve noticed I’m using a lot of the same ‘shock and awe’ words and it’s time to call out the big guns – you – my readers – to help strengthen the prose. To do that, I’m going to give you a scenario and I want you to describe it.  Remember, you know nothing of our world. This is the first time you’ve experienced any of this. Be Eric. Tell me what you’re thinking, what you’re hearing, etc. It can be funny, it can be serious, but in one or two lines or even a few words, describe it in the comments section below.

First scenario:   Firetruck racing off with its siren going.

Ready, set … Go!

Oh, and please share this with everyone!!  The more playing, the more fun this will be!!  And don’t forget to sign up for that monthly newsletter for your chance to win a very special prize for participating!!
