Become a Character in a Suspense Novel
Have you ever wanted to see yourself in print? Time is running out for your
entry to a Character Contest offered by Leslie Glass, author of the
best-selling “Time” series of psychological suspense novels starring NYPD
Detective April Woo and psychoanalyst Dr. Jason Frank.
Glass invites you to become a character in an upcoming novel by entering a
contest accessible through her web site, www.leslieglass.net. The contest
ends December 31, 1999. Participants are also eligible to win an autographed
copy of Stealing Time in a weekly drawing. There is no limit to the number
of entries, and entries are free of charge.
Participants must create a character sketch of themselves through answering a
few simple questions – for example, “If you carried a lethal weapon (legal or
illegal), what would it be?” If you win, you could be a victim, perpetrator,
suspect, or law enforcer in an upcoming Glass novel set in New York City!
Glass's next novel about kids who kill, Tracking Time, will be published
in hardcover by Dutton in 2000.
Glass's novels feature April Woo, the first female Asian-American law enforcement officer in
American crime fiction.
