Call for Submissions: Book: The Sequel

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

By Chris Teja

The problem with finishing any great story is just that -the story is over. Just when you’ve found yourself completely caught up in the character’s lives and sincerely invested in what happens to them, the author has to go and ruin everything by wrapping it all up. 

Well the time has come to take matters into your own hands and pick up where your favorite writer left off. Book: The Sequel is a project that asks readers to choose their favorite book, imagine what it’s sequel would be, and compose the opening line of that story. And although submissions for the print version of Book: The Sequel (available for purchase on their website) have closed, submissions for their online component are continually being accepted. Did somebody say, Life of Pi 2: Richard’s Revenge?
