Tomorrow morning, I’m going up to my local library to tape a radio interview with the lovely librarian Stacy. She was charmed to know I not only obtained reading material at her branch, but plot bunnies. Possibly I may get to tell my story about reading the book in the lower left corner of a particular display, no matter what it is, just to keep my horizons broad. So far this has resulted in two novels and one WIP.
The books with roots tracing back to that fateful library display are The Rare Event and A New Man. I’m planning to take the books (I had to purchase my own copies for reference, plus some. Plus a lot, actually.) with me, forest of sticky notes and all.
To take my mind off speaking to a microphone, I’ll offer a prize of one copy of your choice of those two books to the winner of the “name that plot bunny” contest. To enter, give a title and a subject for a non-fiction book, real or invented, that might be the book that sparked the WIP.
While F*** Like a Mink: the Sex Lives of Mustelids, was not the inspiration for Otter Chaos (Now on preorder at 99 cents, what are you waiting for?), that’s the sort of loopy entry you might offer.
Go wild, and if the winner’s read both possible prizes, we’ll talk. Entries open through Monday, Sept 28 at 11:59 pm.
