HOW THE CONTEST WORKS:

HOW TO PICK A SCENE:
A Seven Year Ache is rife with scenes to inspire you.
The very first page has Josephine, a small woman, literally taking a bull by the horns to save her man's life. Later, she stands down a bear and even has a physical brawl with the Mounties. There are scenes of childbirth, tragic death, fist fights, love, lust, and sex. Dogs, bears, horses and disturbing dreams. The setting is the wilds of Manitoba during the early Twentieth century, with many striking views of forest, sky, and untamed land. A wealth of possibilities for your artist's eye.
WHAT IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD A BOOK?
