A Contest Everyone Can Enter

Before I get into details of the new contest, I’ll update you on the last one. Five of the six finalists have sent in their questionnaires. I realize the last gal is traveling, which is probably affecting her response time. I’ll let you know once all three winners have been selected.

Now for the new contest…

I have this problem. I’m a collector of books. If I like an author, I tend to buy their novels without spending too much time reading the back cover summaries. Sometimes, I purchase new books and other times, I’ll grab one from a garage sale or thrift store. Whatever fills up my at-home library, right?

As you can imagine, I haven’t read a good portion of the books I own, which gets me into trouble when I’m at the book store. I’ll see a book from an author I follow, but I’m not sure if I already own this book or not. The summary seems familiar. Is that because I already bought this book or simply looked at it before? Knowing many books don’t stay on the shelf longer than six months, I often will buy the book anyway. Most of the time, that works out for me, but not always. As a result, I have a few doubles in my collection. Wouldn’t you know they were all books purchased from a thrift store?

Where am I going with this? Well, one of those books will be the prize for this contest. Any Iris Johansen fans? Her novel “No One to Trust” is what you’ll win. Yes, it’s a used book, but it’s in good condition. The spine is creased, but that’s about it.

What do you have to do to win this fantastic book? As you know, I’m in the process of starting a romance critique group. However, the group needs a name. Come up with it and you’ll win.


-Anyone may enter this contest (even the finalists because they won’t be judging).
-You may enter as many times as you like.
-Write your titles in the comment section.
-The deadline is Wednesday midnight.

Good luck!
