The dreaded One Sentence Pitch

June 18, 2010

I’ve been working on the “One Sentence Pitch” for HAUNTING INJUSTICE all morning. Frankly, I’m unhappy with my one sentence writing skills. Who would think it would be so difficult to boil down a 230 page book into its essence in 50 words or less? I wouldn’t. Would you?

Well, if you think you can do better, here’s a challenge for you. Head on over to the FACEBOOK – Prodigal Scribe fan page, where I have posted a challenge for writing the aforementioned pitch. The winner of the contest will get a signed copy of the second Phoenix Worthy book as soon as it publishes.

To participate would mean you would either have to have read,
HAUNTING INJUSTICE, or getting ready to.

    I love Oscar Wilde. If he wasn’t gay and dead, I’d leave you for him. ‘-)

    You’ve got my examples of one-sentences pitches for Haunting Injustice. Like you, I’m sure there’s someone out there who can do much better than I!

    I’m glad I’m not gay or dead. Either one would suck.
    (No pun intended)
