Muse book project

Recommended Posts

I'm just spreading the word on a cool project by tumblr users domhotward and keepcalmandmuse. I'm copy/pasting the details below.

 

If you haven’t heard already, we’ll be putting together a book of stories for Muse. In your story you’ll write about how much Muse has changed you or how they’ve bettered your life. It will be given to them so that they can get a glimpse of how much they mean to so many people. There are a few things that you’ll need to know if you’d like to participate.

 

REQUIREMENTS:

 

  • Try to keep your story under a page long.
  • If you truly cannot cut it down, email us and we’ll talk.
  • PLEASE include your name, and where you’re from, as well as your Twitter name (if you have one)
  • Avoid using Muser jokes or chatroom speak, as this is meant to be meaningful and professional.
  • The font we’re using as of right now is Garamond, if that is something you’d like to know. It’s naturally smaller than Times New Roman and we’re using 12 pt font.

 

THINGS TO KNOW:

  • If you have specific stories, use them.
  • Keep it classy, aka avoid fangirling because you don’t want to look back on your entry with embarrassment.
  • We are proofreading and editing everything, there will likely be some minor changes but we’ll let you know if we have to do anything major.
  • It will be for sale on Amazon after we publish it so that you’ll be able to buy a copy if you’d like.
  • I can guarantee that it will get to the guys, I’ve had updates on my two best options and everything is looking good.
  • I’m doing the art for the cover and right now I have a few ideas/finished pieces to go through with Alyssa.

You can send emails to togetherwereinvincible@aol.com by JANUARY 31 OF THIS YEAR.

Heard about this on devart and got interested. Still think it's kinda cool that you guys are doing this :happy:

 

Go ahead and write something if you're interested! It doesn't have to be long :)

Definately interesting, and cool.

What's up with it being sold on Amazon, though?

I'd be a little concerned about that many names/locations/Twitter tags! :eek:

 

I only put my first name and country, I left out my twitter (I'm a bit weird with that as well, it doesn't seem necessary (not me organizing), plus my username has my full name)

Interesting!

I am writing a book about the same thing. Have done for 18 months now which is currently being finished off prior to going to print. Good luck on your one though. I hope it works out.

The book was given to the guys at the Atlanta gig, and before the show management came out and said they were getting so emotional over the stories that they had to stop reading because they were getting too worked up before a show.

@jamieofcydonia I was blown away. Best gift a fan has ever given.

That is awesome! I must have missed this thread before and didn't submit anything, but I'll buy a copy. Congrats on getting this all finalized and published!
