So! In honor of Springtime and Love, I'm running a contest where YOU will name my next hero/heroine's BEST FRIEND (who may possibly wind up becoming a main character somewhere down the road!)! Here are the rules: Each contestant will enter ONLY ONCE both a male and female name. If there is a meaning behind the name, share it with me! If it's a family/generation thing, share that, too! The contest will run through April 30th, and on MAY 1st I will announce FIRST on my blog, then here, the name of the winner AND the names chosen. The book the names will appear in will be a 2010 release ( because Thirteen Chances is finished!), and the winner's name will be listed on the Acknowledgements Page! The winner will also recieve a signed copy of the book, as well as the lovely prizes shown above: a tea-for-one set including 1 teapot with lid, and 1 cup in a cute Freesia print; 1 box of 19-count GODIVA chocolates; and a tin of Harney & Sons tea, with 20 sachets of Citron Green tea. !!! Plus some promotional material (bookmarks, magnets, etc.) WOW! Cool, huh? :) Now--the prizes above, as well as promo material will be awarded immediately. The signed book, of course, will be in 2010!
Remember: You may enter one male name AND one female name, in ONE email, ONLY ONCE. Please send entries to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: SPRING CONTEST.
AND...MARK YOUR CALENDARS for the end of the contest and be sure and check if you're the winner! I've had winners in the past not respond to my winning email announcement, had a faulty email address, and/or never checked back with my blog/contest page. YIKES! I will send an email, but check my sites, as well. Just to be safe!
Thank you for your readership, and thanks for entering! GOOD LUCK! And I look forward to your names!!!
