We have created a special contest just in time for Valentine’s Day. All you need to do to win the prize is submit a short story of your best Valentine’s Day ever! We want to share in your experiences and also look forward to reading many stories. To enter the giveaway simply post your narrative in this thread – we’ll do the rest. There will be a total of 7 lucky winners!
Below are the details of the contest.
Each of the 7 winners will receive an autographed copy of Dana Precious’ book, Born Under a Lucky Moon. Here is a short synopsis of the novel:
Born Under a Lucky Moon is a real life events tale recounting the story of two very important years in the lives of Jeannie Thompson and her colorful family members to whom “things” just seem to happen. Set in 1986, the story straddles back and forth from the Great Lakes of Michigan to Los Angeles, California. It is a story of surprise marriages, a renegade granny, a sprinkler system cursed by the gods, and myriad other factors Jeannie blames for her full-tilt, out-of-control existence.
But it’s also about good surprises—like an unexpected proposal that might just open Jeannie’s eyes to her real place, among the people she loves most in the world. As the author explains, it was very important for her to write “a warm comedy that understood that families are complicated but that they still love each other deeply. I wanted to make readers feel good and laugh.”
So far, this book has received this review:
“This quirky tale of families and hometowns is hilarious and endearing. The storyline is unpredictable; just when it looks like all hope is lost, Precious throws a curve ball. Readers will be on their toes all the way through, and the illustrative writing enables them to picture each and every antic.” Romantic Times, 4 Stars!
The winners will be selected amongst those who submit their story. We will choose 7 winners and they will each receive their own autographed copy of the novel as their prize. Please provide your email when you submit – you do not have to post it in your story but you’ll need to submit it when you post your comment. Your email address will not show, it will be private.
The Contest Timeframe:
The contest will run from today, February 5 until February 25 when the winner will be announced.
We wish you the best of luck and look forward to reading about your most incredible, romantic, funny, unplanned, memorable, delicious, and special Valentine’s Day ever!
