A Contest: Your Character, My Story

I’m planning to release my collection of short stories in the next several months, and I want to give one lucky fan the chance to be a part of that. Just come up with a character name (male or female, it doesn’t matter) and a brief bio for them. I’ll choose the one that best catches my interest and write a short story about them! You’ll get thanked in the book and get a free, autographed copy when the trade paperback comes out.

Here’s an example, from an actual character in the short story collection:

“Parker McCain: Parker is 40 years old, has been married three times, but has yet to find the perfect woman. He’s very charming and handsome, and also very egocentric.”

And that’s it! You can also add physical characteristics if you want, but it’s not necessary. Make your bio as short or detailed as you want. You’re also welcome to suggest a plot if you so desire.

You can respond on my blog at JoeDeRouen.com, via Twitter to @jderouen, or on my Facebook fan page. You can comment publicly or send it privately, whatever you wish!

I will pick the best one on Monday, June 2nd, 2014, exactly one week from today!
