When screen legend Carl Reiner was asked to describe his newly published memoir, “I Remember Me,” he simply replied, “If you want to hear how I’ve lived these past ninety years, then I have got a story for you!” To commemorate the book launch, Reiner worked with his publishing services company, AuthorHouse, to create the one-of-a-kind “Novel Beginnings” writing contest.

The creative contest provides writers the opportunity to complete a novel Reiner began writing years ago but never finished. The untitled work chronicles the fictional life of Adolf Meistermann, a man marked for murder by the most unlikely of criminals. “It’s a story I am passionate about, but I’m in the twilight of my life and may never have the chance to finish it. I thought it would be wonderful to give another writer the opportunity.”

The contest winner will be personally selected by Reiner and will receive a Legacy publishing package valued at $949 from AuthorHouse. The “Novel Beginnings” writing contest is open to legal residents of the United States ages 21 and older. All entries must be received by March 8, 2013. To enter please visit:
