Submit Your Fact or Fiction by Midnight

Wednesday, February 13, 2013



Thanks for helping me celebrate the release of Retribution. Love...The Second Time Around is what the novel is all about, so submit your most interesting stories of people taking another shot at a relationship.

FUN FACTS!

There is no restriction as it pertains to form or genre. Stories can be fact or fiction. Use your imagination, make them attention-grabbing.You can use something that's pre-written.

 Somewhere in there, you must tell the reader why the couple broke up and why they feel compelled to get back together. This can be done from any of your characters’ point-of-view. 

The word cap is 500.

Indicate on your blog post, by the relevant badge, whether you’re in the fact or fiction category. 

There will be voting and prizes, so it’ll be a reader’s choice situation, where you get to choose your favourite anecdote/poem/refection/story. The best piece of fact and fiction—as determined by your vote—will receive a $10.00 Amazon Gift Card, so that’s two prizes.

In the event of ties, there will be trusty bloggers standing by to help with a tie break decision. If we cannot decide on a winner in either category, prizes will be divvied up between the best two entries and the loot (meagre as it is) shared. Stay tuned for further information. 

Entries are open now, so get cracking on those stories.
Submit your piece of fact or fiction by midnight on February 14. The polls will open on February 15 and we’ll have a few days to read and vote. 

You’ve hit the right page,  just add the direct link to your post below with Mr. Linky. 

Winners will be announced on Friday, February 22, 2013. 

I’d appreciate your help with spreading the word, so do hit one of the share buttons before you go!

  4. I won't get to participate in the blog hop, Joy. But I do love to hear stories of people reuniting, especially if they divorce then remarry (to each other, of course).

    1. Hi, Denise.
      I still have to read again. It's amazing how differently we all think and how creative we can be with the same prompt.
