Star in a Penguin TV ad
From an email from Penguin:
Calling all readers!
We need YOUR help to star in a TV ADVERT to launch our author on PRIME-TIME NATIONAL TELEVISION.
In October 2010, Penguin will be putting their biggest advertising campaign of the year behind an exciting debut author. We can't reveal who the author is, but you'll be surprised and delighted when you find out!
If you have a passion for brilliantly written, comic women's fiction in the best Readers' Group tradition, or simply have a love of discovering new authors, we want to hear from you.
We'll be compiling a long-list of interested readers who will then be interviewed over the phone, via Skype or in person. A selection of you will get an EXCLUSIVE look at this much coveted manuscript to read and react to.
After second interviews the final 6 readers will be chosen to STAR IN OUR AD, where they'll have a chance to meet and interview our mystery author! We'll also be giving our 6 stars £100 WORTH OF PENGUIN BOOKS and a SIGNED FIRST EDITION of the book.
To enter, write 50 words about why, as a member of a Reading Group, you like to discover new authors. Email your answer to email@example.com along with your name, age and location.
You will need to be available to come to London for the shoot on 7th September. We will cover your travel expenses but not accommodation.
CLOSING DATE: Friday 23rd July
