Seekerville's October Birthday Bash is just around the corner, and big plans are already in the works, including several very special guest bloggers!
The Seekers are excited to welcome back Stanley D. Williams, PhD, author of The Moral Premise: Harnessing Virtue & Vice for Box Office Success. Or, for our purposes, using MP theory to give our novels that extra "something" to make them resonate with readers long after they close the book. (Check out his last visit to Seekerville here!)
Adapting a quote from Dr. Williams's website, "While the physical, explicit story or plot line is what a [novel] is about, the psychological or moral premise is what the [novel] is 'really' about." Dr. Williams first visited Seekerville two years ago, offering an extensive overview of the concept including examples of the Moral Premise in published fiction. This time he wants to hear from you.
- What still confuses you about MP?
- How can Dr. Williams help you put MP to work in your fiction?
- What other burning questions are you just dying to ask The Moral Premise Guy?
Send your questions to Seekerville at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Saturday, September 1, at 9 p.m. MST, and we'll compile them for Dr. Williams. Then watch for his guest post on Saturday, October 20! For more information about Dr. Williams and his groundbreaking book, visit his website.
