When I see books like Harry Potter fly off the bookshelves, I can't help but think, What if that were me? What if my hard work paid off and I landed a seven-figure book deal? Aside from passing out (multiple times) from excitement and throwing up (multiple times) out of nervousness, I'd want to do something special with my first purchase from that check.
The problem is, I have no idea what I'd buy. I like my house. I just bought a new car a year ago. And my wife wouldn't be too happy if I brought home any wild, exotic animals.
So here's what I want to know: What would you buy first if you landed a seven-figure book deal? Something big? Something small? Something that'd be special to you?
Post in the comments section and I'll randomly select one person who suggests something to receive a free 1-year subscription to Writer's Digest. Deadline is Friday, August 5 at 3pm Eastern Time. The winner will be announced shortly after that. As a bonus, I'll give a second free 1-year subscription to Writer's Digest for the most creative answer (I love creative answers).
