One of the really great things about blogging is the friends you can make. And if you are really lucky, you get a chance to meet them in person.
Such is the case with Carrie Lofty. I 'met' her through our mutual love of Richard Armitage and all things North and South. It was Carrie who did a wonderful write up during The Crusade. And I've mentioned before that she is my mentor when it comes to SYTYCD!! This girl knows dance like you wouldn't believe!! And now besides RICHard, we both share a strong case of the hawts for a "Frenchie with a mohawk" :-) I love her blog 'cause she too, does posts on SYTYCD
And one of the best things about San Francisco was getting the chance to meet Carrie in person!!
Now while I know she's a lot more excited than me, still my excitement level is pretty high for her since her first book, What A Scoundrel Wants is coming out in December!!!! It's based on the story of Will Scarlet. Another thing we share is thinking Christian Slater was pretty fine in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves - and there wasn't nearly enough of him in the movie.
Well, it seems her good friend Ann Aguirre - author of the very well received Grimspace and Wanderlust, is having a contest on her blog.
Here are the details
Rules for entry for people with a blog:
Copy the code for that sexy contest widget from here. Post it somewhere on your blog. Note: it’s probably too big for most sidebars, so it’ll need to be a post. Then let us know in comments on this blog that you want a copy of the book, and that you’ve spread the word via viral kung fu. Make sure you leave a link back so we can check out your handiwork. For a bonus entry in a separate comment, tell us why you’re interested in reading Will Scarlet’s story. (I could give you a gazillion reasons, myself! But then, I’ve read it. This book is fierce. If you’re tired of the same old time periods, the same old heroes and heroines, you’ll want to be first in line to get a taste of this hot-sexy-fresh historical. It’s lightning for your brain!)
For those who don’t have blogs, here’s what you do to enter:
Tell at least one other person about the contest. That means spreading the word on your loops, groups, emails, or IM or whatever communique works best for you. Mind you, I’m not asking you to spam all of the above. Please don’t do that. One venue per person will be just fine. And then come back and let us know where you mentioned the contest. It would be great if you could also include a link to the sexy contest widget when you mention the contest. That’d be this link here. Just like the bloggers, for an extra entry, you can tell us why you lust for Will Scarlet. (Yes, it can be because Christian Slater said, “Fuck me, he cleared it,” all those years ago.)
In either case (blog or no blog), for a third and extra-special-sauce entry, why don’t y’all give me your best guesses at WHAT A SCOUNDREL WANTS?
So to clarify, if we get 100 entries (that’s entries, not people), I’ll sweeten the pot with 50 large for some lucky soul to spend on books. Additionally, whenever I get crazy with the Cheez Whiz like this, there are always random surprise giveaways, so you never know who might be the lucky poster. This will run until December 1. Are you guys ready to light it up?
Then why don’t you c’mon and tell me WHAT A SCOUNDREL WANTS!
So be sure to enter over at Ann Aguirre's blog!!!
