Who’s Your Favorite Fictional Mother-Daughter Pair? A Mother’s Day Writing Contest
[**** Updated to reinforce that the 250 word is a MAXIMUM not a minimum so don’t think you need to be verbose here! ****]
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, JENNIE NASH and I and all the fantastic bloggers listed below are running a Favorite Fictional Mother & Daughter! contest. 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?) Click HERE to read the first chapter.
HOW TO ENTER:
From now to MAY 8, visit one of the blogs and enter UP TO 250 words explaining your favorite fictional mother-daughter pair. These are some of the best blogs about books, literature and life. Have fun exploring them – but you can only enter on one blog. By May 8!
ON MOTHER’S DAY, each blogger will post the entry they like best. Each blog’s winners will receive a signed copy of The Threadbare Heart and will be entered in the Grand Prize Giveaway.
WHAT YOU WIN:
The Grand Prize winner will receive a ―Book Club in a Box!! — ten signed copies of The Threadbare Heart, a call-in from the author, and a delicious rum cake to share with your book- reading friends. (Why rum cake? You’ll have to read the book to understand! I’ve picked out a cake by a baker named Kelli because she started selling rum cakes when she lost her baking buddy to cancer and I loved her story – and I happen to think that good stories are a big part of a good life.)
Happy Mother’s Day!
