The Novel: Live is asking for your help on Facebook and since they raised money for literacy, that’s a plus in my book. From their page:
36 Authors. 6 Days. 1 Blockbuster Novel. Can you help us name it?
Last fall, 36 well-known authors in the Northwest gathered together to write a complete novel in just six days, live before an audience. The project tightened the bond between readers and writers, and raised money for literacy. The finished product will soon be published as a 60,000 word e-riginal novel by Open Road Media in May 2011, featuring the talented Seattle7Writers Garth Stein and Jennie Shortridge, and bestselling authors Jamie Ford, Elizabeth George, Erik Larson, Kevin O’Brien, and Nancy Rawles, among many others.
Over the past month, we’ve been collecting title suggestions on the Facebook Wall and in the discussion board. Based on those suggestions, we’ve come up with 3 final contenders for the title! Please read the chapter here, and then hop over to our Poll to vote on the book’s official title! (For more info about the project, check out our Discussions section.)
