The NOVEL that strippers tip at strip clubs!

The Ashlie Wrote Bookcover Contest

Shortly after writing A Danger to Society, I was contacted by a business woman out in California who wanted me to write her life story. She said it was stranger than fiction. I could relate. So, I agreed.

I was taken on one huge ride over the next couple of months. It had taken her over thirty years to live the life that she wanted portrayed in the book. But, the book soon took on a life of its own. She told me all about her sexual pursuits and then she started flirting with me. I tried to keep the relationship purely professional. But, she was persistent.

When I sent her the finished book, she invited me to California where we met for the first time. She said she couldn’t stand how truthful the book had become. She had completely exposed herself and she wasn’t going to be able to go through with publishing it. I begged her to reconsider. But, she eventually ended up giving me the full copyrights as long as I changed the names and places in the book.

I agreed. I loved the book. I had lived part of it. It was a part of me and I didn’t want to let it go. So, I contacted a beautiful model Paula Kaiser and asked her if I could use one of her photos for the cover of the book. She agreed. All she wanted was a mention on the copyright page. That was more than perfect for me.

Over the years, with each new project I took on, the book slowly faded into a memory. I don’t know why. But, I was working so hard on establishing myself as a writer and always thinking in the back of my mind that Ashlie Wrote would get published once I had accomplished some other things in life first.

Then one day, after wrapping up a screenplay for a producer in Texas and writing a treatment for a director in Maryland, I saw the bookcover I had created years ago and I thought about the book. It suddenly became a passion of mine to publish. I had a new fire in me burning to make Ashlie Wrote into something special.

But, I wasn’t sure if Paula Kaiser would remember giving me permission to use her photo. So, I thought about it for a few days and something dawned on me. I wanted to run a bookcover contest. I wanted to get models involved and have them compete. So, I opened up the Ashlie Wrote Bookcover Contest to all models or anyone who wants to be on the bookcover of Ashlie Wrote.

The contest will run until the end of July, 2009 and the Ashlie Wrote community will vote for the winner. The winning model will be placed on the cover of Ashlie Wrote as well as mentioned in the copyright page along with her website, agency or company if she so desires. People interested in entering do not have to be professional models.

So, this is the official call for those who are interested in being on the cover of Ashlie Wrote to visit the ashliewrote.com website and enter. The more active you are, the greater your chances become to win. Upload videos, pictures, write a bio and stay active. Promote yourself to your family and friends. But most of all, make sure you have fun.
