Admittedly, I’m not much of a contest person. I’ve entered a few, done well enough to call them a success but all in all I’m a loner. An independent. I write because it’s fun and well…because I have to. It’s who I am. So contests don’t really validate me. And while they can and do lead to future opportunities, in general I’m happy to pave my own way.


This is a contest worth taking notice of for two reasons:

1. It looks fun (and unless something is fun, I’m not inclined to do it.)

2. It’s Harlequin. You know…the biggest player in the romance fiction industry?

So check it out. There are two links here. The first is to a blog post by a woman who entered last year and her experiences. The second is a link to the actual contest information.

If you’re even remotely interested, check it out today. The week long online conference, (yep, you can attend a conference from the comfort of your couch) starts on Monday.

I’m going to be there, will you?

And what’s Hot Fun Friday without a few giggles? Check these posts out…

Rotten Erotica..?

Good “Day in the life” interview with an entertaining author…

Speaking of giggles…check out this photo. All I could think was “get the heck out of my kitchen sink!”
