Aaron and I had our monthly business meeting the other day, and as one idea led to another, he ended up with a great new feature on his blog.
First Lines Friday asks, “What was the best first line you wrote this week?” You’ll have all weekend to contribute. Each Monday, Aaron, myself and a guest judge will select a finalist, and at the end of each month, popular vote will select the winner from those finalists.
Each monthly winner will receive a $15 gift card to their choice of Target, Starbucks, or Amazon.
Sounds like fun, yah? But wait. It gets better.
At the end of the year, popular vote will select the grand prize winner from the twelve monthly winners.
What’s the grand prize? I’m so glad you asked. How does a $50 gift card sound? Again, the winner can choose from Amazon, Starbucks, or Target.
That’s right. Just for writing one amazing sentence, you could win a total of $65 in prizes from Aaron D. Gansky. Not bad.
Starting this Friday, June 5, you can be a part of First Lines Friday on his blog.
And starting now, you can help spread the word and be entered to win an autographed copy of his book, Firsts in Fiction: First Line Hooks, Hints & Help.
Of course, if you don’t want to wait, you can click on the photo link above and order your own.
But if you want to have some fun and maybe win an autographed copy, follow the entry instructions on the Rafflecopter link below. And don’t forget to enter Aaron’s First Lines Friday every Friday!
And Frankly, My Dear . . . that’s all she wrote!
