How Bout Some Fun…Let’s Have a Contest!

You thought I was going to say KiKi, didn’t you? But that would have been lame.  First of all, let’s pause and take a look at this adorable #TBT above! (Throwback Thursday in case you’re out of touch with reality.) Here’s the deal; for the last six weeks I’ve been busy working hard on my next novel which will be released Spring of 2015(although you can contact me now for review copies…hint, hint book bloggers!).  When I’m not sitting at the computer, I’m driving around thinking about my characters, literally having conversations with them as if they were sitting in the car.  This will make much more sense to you once you’ve read the book, which you better do because it’s pretty fantastic.  That being said, if you haven’t read my current book The Before Now and After Then, finish reading this article and immediately go to the bottom of this page and order it!!!! Thanks I love you too! Anyway, I was driving around today, singing Lady Gaga’s Hair at the top of my lungs with my characters and I thought, If it’s a Thursday and you’re bored driving around town, why not a contest???

I love contests and sweepstakes and I always enter them even though I rarely win.  My cousin’s stepson has recently won something like $575,234 total in sweepstakes but I believe that’s because he’s smarter than the rest.  He must have a system.  (If you know me well, you know I’m a big believer in conspiracies and “systems”, in fact I just like saying that word.  Systems.)  I don’t have a system and I never win.  Although last week at the Indiana State Fair I won one free nights stay in Myrtle Beach, Las Vegas or Orlando, but Alex said it was a scam.  (That is a word I don’t like.  I don’t like to believe in scams which is typically why I fall for them.)

Anyway, I was thinking how wonderful it might be to host my own contest of sorts.  One that can’t be rigged because I am the sole judge. If you don’t like it, don’t enter.  Simple.  And, I’m kind of making this up as I go but I plan on having many more contests in the future! But let’s try this first:
