We’ll be back with more of the Firmament: Radialloy blog tour soon, but for now, I have some exciting news!
Awhile back, I wrote a post about loglines. I mentioned my friend Jordan and his wonderful logline advice. Well now, I am happy to announce that Jordan has written and published a book that will help you find the heart of your story with a tidy, juicy little logline.
Finding the Core of Your Story is not only very informative and helpful, but it is an absolute delight to read. Full of personable and down-to-earth humor, it will help you take your big, complicated story and represent it neatly in a sentence or two. Each chapter ends with fun exercises that will have you happily loglining away in no time. Never get stuck on the “What is your story about” question again!
In honor of the book’s release, I’m doing a giveaway contest for two spiffy ebook copies from Smashwords! What kind of contest does one do to win a logline book? Why, a logline contest, of course!
That’s right, you’re going to have to write a logline to win. But not just any logline. My fellow judges and I are going to get you started. Aubrey Hansen and Lawrence Mark Coddington have agreed to help me judge the contest, and we each have a word for you to include:
My word is heartless
Aubrey’s word is revives
And Mark’s word is adventurer
Now, have some fun and enter the contest! And don’t let your lack of logline knowledge stop you — we’ll be giving away one ebook copy to the winner of the contest, and the rest of the entries will be entered in a drawing to win the other copy. So no matter what your logline is like, you could win the book, and learn how to do better at finding the core of your story!
The contest ends at noon CST on June 16th. Post entries as a comment to this post, be creative, and have fun!
May the best logline win!
