We have two new contests here at A History of Romance. Feel free to enter each one.
Contest one- Blog Challenge – Win a goody bag with one signed item.
Blog challenge accepted.
Jeanie Mackenzie challenged us to write about marketing your novel. (Which I assume means marketing a book as an author.)
The 4 words are…
This blog will be completed and posted by 4-23 meeting all requirements or you win a prize! Yay.
Challenge us. You pick a blog topic you would like to hear about (related to romance novels or writing in general) and four words we have to use while writing on that topic. April and I will take turns answering this challenge. If you can stump us, and we can’t find a way to legitimately include all four words, you win a goody bag.
We will take the first comment with a legitimate topic and four (definable on the Miriam-Webster website) words. (No slang, made up words, or techie words. Profanity, or anything else that would be deemed inappropriate will be deleted.)
The blog will be posted on the subject within two weeks.
Words do not have to be used in a specific context. (For example, spirit could be used as a drink, ghost, or any other legit definition of the word.)
When that post comes out, we will accept the first comment on that post containing a topic and four words.
If in any post, we are unable to include the words, the winner will be announced, and we will email the winner regarding their goody bag.
Go ahead, try to stump us.
Contest two- Title contest – Win your name in the book, and an Amazon gift card.
I am leaving the title of one of my newest books up to you. If your title is chosen, not only will the book take the name you suggest, but also, your name will appear in the acknowledgments and you will win a $20 gift card to Amazon Kindle website where you can purchase all of my books as well as April’s novels. (And some other authors too, I guess. lol)
The series is a prequel to my Homecoming series.
The prequel to The Soldier’s Return is A Soldier’s Woman
The prequel to The Wedding Night is A Surprising Day
You will be naming the prequel to The Librarian’s Love. The blurb thus far is:
Erica loves her studies. Library arts, books, the smell of history… It intoxicates her… But when she gets drunk at a frat party and reveals a bit more than she intends in a game of ‘Never have I ever’, she finds her life of books and shelves not quite as satisfying as the sexy man whose attention she attracts.
Daniel noticed the mousy librarian type who would normally blend herself into the wall, if it weren’t for the drinks she’d had and the interesting game they played at the frat party. The spark that lit her eyes, and the interesting contrasts in her behavior and his expectations made her interesting. He wanted to see what lay behind that drab gray sweater, and what those glasses were hiding. And he would have his answers before the game was done.
Contest will run from April 3nd to April 13th. Winner will be posted by April 20th.
The name has to follow the formula above. A —- —- (and have some connection to the previous title The Librarian’s Love.)
You may enter up to five titles for consideration. (First five per person only.)
Include your name with all title suggestions.
If you do not want your name on the acknowledgments, or would prefer a character named after you, let me know when you win.
Good luck! Ava Delany
