Florida Sisters in Crime is creating its very own chapter banner!
And we need you to come up with the words for it.
While it’s true you won’t win anything beyond your chapter’s undying respect, a lasting legacy for generations to come, and the satisfaction of knowing your words will live on after you do, we are having a contest to decide on the tagline for our brand new chapter banner!!
To be clear, the purpose of this banner is to be used to represent our club at book fairs and conferences, during those events when we have booths to sell books or just want to have a club presence. It would serve to lure (I mean attract) people over to our table who might then decide they want to join us, or merely as a way of letting readers know that there’s a whole group of mystery and thriller writers in the state whose books they can discover.
I’ve had a couple of people already offer up clever lines playing off the word “sink” but spelled “SinC.” My suggestion to you as you begin to adjust the chin straps of your thinking caps is to consider the fact that only fellow “Sisters” really get the whole SinC thing. To everyone else, ie the public with whom we are attempting to communicate with this banner, the word Sinc is confusing. So YES bring on the puns by all means, my fellow wordsmiths but not at the expense of a clear message.
Please email Susan K-L with your suggestions and bon mots and let’s brand this puppy (ouch! that didn’t sound good), I mean let’s get our name OUT there!
