Shout out- The Novel: Live

A quick note to point your attention to a fascinating project that was put together in Seattle toward the end of last year.

The Novel: Live saw 36 authors, including such literary bright lights as Elizabeth George and Robert Dugoni, amongst others, come together to write a novel in six days. Each author did a different chapter of the book, and you can see more about it at their website, here.

The organisers are currently looking for a title for the book, and having just closed submissions on their Facebook page, they're now looking for people to vote in the poll to decide between the top three options. Head over there and check out the first chapter, then sling your vote toward your favourite.

Personally, I'm partial to Hotel Angeline: A Novel in 36 Voices. How about you?

The finished e-book will be published in May 2011, so keep an eye out. We love our collaborative stories around here- with the calibre of people involved in this one, it ought to be good.
