Contest Alert: WHA Happa?

Last week during my fit of procrastination (more on that later), I entered a writing contest over at Smart Bitches Who Love Trashy Novels (Warning: Adult Language and Mature Themes, as you might have guessed).

Our assignment: write a synopsis for a romance novel featuring that favorite trope of night-time soap operas: the amnesia storyline.

I've decided to start a little side wager here at Madame Jerita's Bayside Betting Parlor*:

Guess which of the eight entries was penned by Moi (that's French for "Jeri"). Send your guess (one per reader) by Thursday, February 23, midnight PST. I'll draw a name from the correct answers.

The winner will get an autographed cover flat of my first Luna book, Eyes of Crow. These are made in very limited number, so even if you're a friend or family member, don't assume you're gettin' one, unless your name is Mom.

YET ANOTHER SIDE BET: If I get 25 or more entries, I'll up the prize to an autographed ARC (Advance Review Copy) of Eyes of Crow. These are expensive for me to make up--even more than buying the book itself--but unlike the book, it will be available in June, not November. So tell your friends!

Contest subject to something or other by law. Another thingie may not apply. Void where prohibited.

*Lose three races in a row and get a free Apple-tini!
