Let's have a little fun while we wait for Monday's Secret Agent contest.
I'm having a blast being anonymous, now that I've got my double identity down pat. (No, really. I can flip from Authoress Me to Real Me and back again with barely a thought. This is probably not a good thing.) I've worked hard to establish an identity here that is reflective of my personality and heart (it is) without revealing details about my personal life (aside from Mr. A, who seems to be enjoying the notoriety).
So here's what I'm inviting you to do:
Write my bio. Make it sound like it's straight from the jacketflap of my first bestseller. Create a persona that reflects a combination of what you know about me and your imaginings about what the "rest" of me is like. What's my educational background? Where do I live? What's interesting enough about my personal life to add to a bio?
I will choose a winner and send you a free copy of my e-book, Agent:Demystified. If you already own a copy, enter the contest anyway! If you win, you can send me the email address of one of your best writing buddies, and give your winning copy to him or her. Spread the love, yes?
Criteria for winning: An equal combination of excellent writing and creativity. If it makes me laugh, all the better.
And no, I will NOT be choosing a winner according to how closely the bio reflects reality. So don't even ask me.
I like hiding behind my hat.
All entries for this contest must appear in the comment box below. Please use a screen name by which you can be easily identified.
I will accept entries until 5:00 pm EDT on Sunday, March 15. After that time, I will close comments on this post and choose the winning bio. I'll post the winner on Tuesday.
And please -- no email entries! Comment box only. My inbox is full enough right now.
Looking forward to reading about...ur, myself!
