Come one! Come all! Enter a Mother's Day writing contest! Jennie Nash is sponsoring a writing contest across the blogosphere and has asked me to be one of the host blogs! I am very honored!
The Threadbare Heart is a story about a mother and a daughter torn apart by grief, jealousy and misunderstanding — and the family heirloom that finally brings them together. To celebrate its publication, and in honor of Mother’s Day, I’m running a ―Favorite Fictional Mother & Daughter contest with some fantastic bloggers. We want to know which fictional mother-daughter pair made you laugh? Made you cry? Made you cringe? Which pair revealed something true about your own mother-daughter relationships? (And yes, mothers and daughters in film are eligible. Fiction is fiction, right?)
So grab a cup of coffee and let's get writing!
How to enter:
1. Send to me, by Saturday, May 8 at 6pm CST, 250 words telling me about your favorite fictional mother-daughter pair. You can email me your entries - kherbrand at comcast dot net. But you can only enter on one blog - (pick me - pick me!)
2. On Mother's Day I will post the one that I like the best and that winner will receive an autographed copy of The Threadbare Heart and will be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing. How will I choose? Like Jennie, I will pick the one that seems heartfelt and true. Like she says above though - this duo could be the one that made you cringe as well as the one that made you cry. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's favorite!
3. On May 16, Jennie will choose a Grand Prize Winner from all the winning blog entries. (How will she choose? Whichever entry hits her as being heartfelt and true). The Grand Prize Winner will be announced on all the participating blogs, on Jennie's website and on twitter.
