Win a Guest Appearance in a Mystery Novel!
Have you always longed to see yourself in print?
Enter our Story Circle Network benefit drawing, and you could win a cameo guest appearance in one of Susan Wittig Albert's three mystery series: the China Bayles Herbal Mysteries, the Robin Paige Victorian/Edwardian Mysteries, or the Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter. (For a list of all of Susan's mysteries, and to order them [through amazon.com], see susansbooks.shtml.)
Susan (who founded Story Circle in 1997) will personally work with the three winners to develop characters who will represent them in three of her upcoming mystery novels. If you win, you'll fill out a questionnaire describing yourself (or the character you'd like to be!), and Susan will use this information to create a character. And don't worry: she won't ask you to be a villain. You'll be the kind of person you can brag about to your friends! What's more, you'll also receive a specially personalized first edition.
PrizesFirst Prize: Winner gets first pick of the series in which s/he wants to appear. Second and Third Prize Winners get second and third pick of the remaining series books. (For information about the series, see Susan's website: www.mysterypartners.com.)
