Fun & Prizes

Excitement abound today. Amparo, one of my awesome CPs, is having her very first blog fest. I'll let her explain it.

The Fake Boyfriend/Girlfriend Blogfest!!

What: Let's face it--we all get crushes. *nods* Doesn't matter if you're married or not. It happens. My goal with the Fake Boyfriend/Girlfriend Blogfest is simple. All you have to do is choose between: 

a) An author crush 
(someone whose works you admire so much you'd make out with the pages!)


b) A celebrity crush 
(TV. Movies. Sports. Doesn't matter, as long as they're famous and (sadly) out of reach). 

and write him/her a love letter on your blog. It can be from your POV, or from the main character of your manuscript's--totally up to you.

When: Since the 14th of February is reserved for your real One and Only, I figured the 15th would be perfect for your Fake Boyfriend/Girlfriend! That way, your real One and Only won't feel abandoned or anything. Plenty of love to spread around, right? ;)

Wanna gush about your Fake Other One? Head on over to Amparo's blog and sign up with Mr. Linky. 

Also, the fabulous K.M.Walton is chasing away the winter blues with a contest. The grand prize? A first chapter critique by her agent, Sarah LaPolla. Runner up gets a cool Apocalypsies tote bag with 7 YA books in.  Contest closes at Midnight on February the 13th.
