Rob Boffard: Be The Story competition

What if you could be a character in a book?
Not just your name – your personality and appearance, as a unique character in fictional world? Walking around, spouting one-liners, murdering people, saving the day…generally kicking ass, in a book that will be on the shelves of thousands of people. Sounds cool, yes?

Today I’m featuring a competition for Rob Boffard – author of some of my favourite kick-ass sci-fi  Tracer and Adrift (go clicky on the links to see my reviews – in short, they’re fantastic) is giving you the chance to appear as a character in one of his upcoming books.

It’s the works: name, physical characteristics, likes and dislikes, mannerisms, pet preferences, choice of weapons, the songs you like to hum in the bath, all of it. It can be exactly like the real you – OR you can switch things up and create a fictional version that is completely different. Your call!

Anyone can enter. Absolutely anyone. Any city, any country, any planet, any solar system.

Details on how you can win are over here on Rob’s website: HOW TO WIN, but it’s pretty simple.

Leave a review of Rob’s new book, Adrift, on your favorite store.
