If most writers are like me, no matter how many books they publish, blogs they write or readings they give, the next accomplishment is just as gratifying as the first. I couldn't help but think this when I found out just yesterday that Perseus Book Group selected my submission for their Book: The Sequel. First Lines from the Classics of the Future by Inventive Imposters, edited by Clive Priddle. Of course, I wasn't the only one who had their submission selected, but it's still nice to have something I created accepted. My friend, Saralee Rosenberg, also got her submission included in Book: The Sequel. Congratulations, Saralee!
Here's the fun part: the complementary Web site is inviting anyone who'd like to submit their own first line. You can check it out here: https://app.e2ma.net/app/view:CampaignPublic/id:19464.2061122457/rid:38a5feba60cc5395734f8552f17c8fb7
And to see how it was done, check out this You Tube video that was part of the BookExpo excitement:
