Your Idea Could Live in the British Library Forever!

Eloise Wales, Content Manager, The Literary Platform

Crowdfunding publishers Unbound are running a competition that’s sure to pique your imagination.

The winner will have the unique chance to work with author Yannick Hill to create one of the curious rooms featured in his debut novel, Versailles. 

Versailles is a 100-room mega-mansion set back from the Pacific Ocean and is home to Casey Baer, founder and CEO of the Internet’s pre-eminent social network, and his family. But all is not well in paradise and this is the story of a nuclear family set to explode.

Of Versailles’ 100 rooms, the majority are locked test-chambers for Casey’s ongoing investigation into the human experience. In one room, a crew of actors play out a realistic plane crash on a loop. In another, varsity athletes from around the country come together for career-ending, bare-knuckle brawls.

What happens behind the next closed door? You decide…

To enter and be in with a chance of winning this excellent prize worth £1000 all you need to do is pledge for Versailles before midnight (BST) on 31st August 2015.  The higher you pledge, the more times your name will be entered into the draw.

Second prize gets you two tickets to the launch party once the book gets published. Third prize is a limited-edition Versailles inspired Risograph print created by award-winning illustrator Andrew Groves.

Can’t wait? Get involved now and share your room ideas on Twitter using #VersaillesRoom

Good luck!
