Logline Help!

This amazing journey from novel to screenplay is filled with so many twists and turns it’s difficult to know where it stands from day to day. The editor returned the full screenplay with lots of comments and suggestions – enough to keep my busy for quite some time!

Book 1

Book 1

But you know my mind is ALWAYS one step ahead of the rest of me. The Vortex needs a logline – a one line summary to answer the question: What is it about? I’ve come up with some half decent ones and some really bad ones, then Les reminded me that most people don’t work in a bubble. Most great ideas come from brainstorming.

Book 2

That’s where you, my brilliant village, come in! I need loglines or just phrases that can be turned into loglines for The Vortex. This is the best of what I’ve come up with so far:

For three kids, their summer vacation into the country leads to a Skunk Ape kidnapping, mermaid sacrifice and goblin wars when they find themselves in an active cryptozoological vortex.

Now I want to know what you can come up with!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.

    With fears of spending a long and boring summer with their slightly eccentric Aunt and Uncle, Addeline, Fiona and Ian end up experiencing a extraordinary, if not a bit scary, adventure in an amazing cryptozoological vortex. Suspenseful!
