(This contest is over. Leigh Pittman was chose our winner.)
To celebrate Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 13), YourNovel.com is sponsoring a little writing contest, and the winner will be awarded one of our personalized romance novels. We are not asking for anything near the scope of our short story writing contest that produced the book Celebrating Romance 2 to commemorate our 20 years in business.
Instead, to win this contest, you simply have to tell us in 50 words or less which of our novels or eBooks you think a mom in your life would like to star in and why (that mom can be you, by the way, if you’re inclined to enter).
YourNovel.com’s 40-some books come in exotic settings like Tahiti, Jamaica, Africa, Rome, Key West, the Caribbean, cruise ships, a dude ranch, a ski resort and more. We also have a vampire series, historical fiction, detective books and a golf fantasy novel. Each comes in “wild” or “mild” versions where any couple becomes the stars with 26 bits of information like names, eye and hair color, affectionate nicknames, make of car, best friends, favorite color, perfume/cologne, favorite music, radio station and more.
The winner gets his or her choice of any of our personalized novels – paperback, hardback or eBook (valued up to $126.95).
So if you know a mom, or grandma, or mom-to-be who loves to read romance novels – or if you’re a mom yourself – enter our contest for a chance to win a book to keep or to give to that special mom to make her the star she is in her own personalized novel.
