A “Mystery” Sensory Setting Experience within the Winner’s City or Town

STATUS: 2 Unlocked So Far

Experiences

To write stronger, more compelling fiction, our Setting Thesaurus books contain the sights, smells, tastes, sounds, and textures for 225 different contemporary locations. Well, we want to send you to one of the settings we visited to collect your own sensory detail! Will your mystery sensory experience be at a local antique shop where you can buy yourself something special on us? Or perhaps you’ll visit that new bakery that opened up. Maybe you’ll end up at a trendy restaurant, the spa, a zoo, or somewhere else fun!

The winner will be asked to provide additional information regarding interests, and then a mystery setting experience within an area local to them will be chosen and given in the form of a gift certificate. Angela and Becca will do their best to create an experience that will appeal to the winner, but the nature of this prize is a mystery. It cannot be exchanged and has no official cash value. If the winners wish to not use the experience themselves, they can pay it forward for someone else to enjoy. The winner will be responsible for getting to and from the mystery experience, along with any expenses this may accrue. And naturally, any costs that may go beyond the gift certificate’s value will also be the winner’s responsibility.

Blueprint for a Book is a 5-week course that goes beyond simply plotting your book and drills down into the most important elements that will drive your story forward. Without these in place before you start writing, you could risk years of frustration and books that go nowhere.

Blueprint for a Book will match the winner with a book coach based on genre, writing level, and personality. The winner will gain access to assignments, course videos, lessons, and personal coach reviews to help narrow down their book’s focus and plot so they can transition to writing it with confidence. This course is available for writers of fiction, nonfiction, memoir, and speculative fiction. For a detailed list of the elements of this course, stop by Author Accelerator.
