Why would an author give away a completed book to a reader?

The answer is simple. Without you, the reader, I'd be nothing, which is why I want to give something back to one lucky reader. You will win the opportunity to work with me on your very own book, a book you will name, plan, and eventually own. Together, we will work out who the protagonist will be, where they live, how intense their story is, as well as which antagonist they will face off against. You can set it in your home town, or on the other side of the world, place yourself in the middle of the action, or go for a complete stranger. You will have the chance to dedicate the book to someone special, as well as decide whether to share it with the world, or keep it just for you and whoever else you allow to read it. Sounds good?

For more information on how you can win this incredible prize, check out the simple instructions below, submit your entry, then sit back and wait for the final decision. Are you ready for the ultimate reader prize?
