Today is the beginning of our 250 follower challenge!
If we can get 250 followers by January 12th, then I will be giving away some awesome prizes. The first prize will be a brand new, signed copy of Mindy Klasky's When Good Wishes Go Bad and a used copy of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Fantasy Lover. The second prize winner will be able to choose any one book from the giveaway vault. That means there will be two winners! For more info on the books, please click the title links.
Here are the guidelines:
1) You MUST be a follower of this blog to enter.
2) Both old and new followers are allowed to enter. But in order for your name to be entered into the drawing, you must leave one comment, anywhere on the blog, with the words "Entry: (Your name) and (Your email)."
3) Anyone who tweets/posts about the challenge on Twitter/Facebook and provides me with a direct link will receive one extra entry per tweet/post.
4) Anyone who makes a blog post about the challenge and provides a direct link will receive three extra entries.
The contest begins today 12/17/10 and ends 1/12/11! So hop to it and start spreading the word so you can get as many entries as possible! Also, don't forget our usual blog hops and the blog questions that accompany them. Have a great weekend ;-)
What do you consider the most important in a story: the plot or the characters?
My answer: As a writer, I think both are extremely important and a truly good story has both. However, a story with a really good plot but boring characters will make me put the book down. If the characters are great enough, I'll keep reading despite a lacking plot.
What did you study in college, or are you currently studying and did it lead to your current 9 to 5 or are you doing something totally different?
My answer: Most of my regular readers know this, but for those who don't, I am currently an English major at Stetson University with minors in Creative Writing and Spanish. My current job is in healthcare and has nothing to do with my degree. Though hopefully, once I finish the degree, I will have a job that is related. ;-)
