The Challenge: You know how real estate agents will stage an apartment to attract potential buyers? Well, that’s what you’re going to do to a book!
The Rules: Take a picture of a book you’re reading today, or any book you have lying around. In the picture you should have the book in a setting, or surrounded by items, that represent the book. It can mimic the cover, or represent characters/events/etc from the story. Basically, make us want to read the book based on picture alone. This must be a picture YOU take and upload. Simply stage the book, and upload a picture to your blog, Twitter or Goodreads account. If you don’t have any of these, than you can post your picture on my blog’s Facebook page.
I have never participated in a challenge like this before, but it was a blast. Enjoy the photo. I apologize for my poorly worded description.
I staged Gretchen McNeil's Ten. I added the movies Clue and I Know What You Did Last Summer to the photo because Ten reminded me of those movies a little bit when I read it. I also added a knife with "blood" (aka ketchup) on it because it is a gory novel, and I thought it would catch someone's attention. I also played with the color a little and tried to make the photo give off a creepy/dark feeling to help emphasize that Ten is a horror novel.
