CONTEST: Create a character

Hey everyone!

As you’re probably aware, I’m just starting out here. Although I’ve written in the past for my own enjoyment, it’s not something I ever really shared with the world.

And yet, here we are. I want to share my writing with you! In order to help me build my audience, I’m proposing a bit of a contest. The rules are as follows.

I will post an excerpt from The Duke’s Dilemma tonight. It will be PG, maybe PG-13. You have until 11:59 pm (EDT) on Wednesday, July 5th, to do any of the following.

  • If you like the post you will be entered once into a raffle.
  • If you share the post on your own blog, you will be entered twice.
  • If you write a little blurb promoting the post, my book, or my blog, you’ll be entered three times as a base plus and an additional entry for every 50 words you write (ie a 100 word piece would be equal to 5 entries).

The prize? A character you design. I have a character sheet that you’ll be able to fill out. You can choose to base the character off yourself or create the character from the depths of your imagination. The sheet will include basics (name, age, appearance) as well as more in depth descriptions (scent, motivation, aspirations).

Some fine print: The character must be compliant with the time period of this historical novel. As such, I may have to work with you to ensure that the character is seamlessly integrated. I can only guarantee that the character has a scene in the story, I cannot promise that the character ends up any more important than that. If I choose to do this sort of contest again, previous winners WILL be allowed to enter.

Good luck!
