Madras Press is a new, non-profit publisher of individually bound short stories and novellas. The Press is a literary and philanthropic project whose books serve as fundraising efforts for a number of charitable causes and organizations. Each of their authors has selected a beneficiary to which all net proceeds generated from the sales of his or her book will be donated; these include organizations dedicated to environmental protection, community development, human services, and much more.
Here’s a list of their first four books (forthcoming December 2009)
The Third Elevator, by Aimee Bender
Bobcat, by Rebecca Lee,
Sweet Tomb, by Trinie Dalton, and
A Mere Pittance, by Sumanth Prabhaker.
Here’s the contest:
Write a 150-250 word fake bio to any of the writers above and post it here as a comment. The person who writes the best bio of a writer will receive a copy of that writer’s book. So, in other words, if you write the best bio of Aimee Bender, for instance, you will get a copy of her book The Third Elevator. Enter as many times as you’d like, for as many writers as you’d like.
