October is my favourite month, Fall is my favourite season, reading is my favourite hobby, writing is my passion and kissing is one of my favourite pastimes… so I thought I’d combine all of those things for one SUPER AWESOME CONTEST!
A Great Time to FALL in Love: First Kiss Contest starts today!
You can win 4 free ebooks plus a SIGNED copy of My Heart for Yours by Stephanie Campbell and Jolene Perry
Comment on this or any post up to October 12 and tell me the YA or NA book that has the BEST first kiss, your favourite quote from that scene and why you love it! Answers can be serious, fun, silly or downright ridiculous. Multiple entries welcome and if every single one of you loves the same kiss, that’s okay too!
Your comment automatically enters you to win ebook copies of What a Boy Wants by Nyrae Dawn, The Truth About Faking by Leigh Talbert Moore, and Fall Guy by Liz Reinhardt PLUS a SIGNED COPY OF MY HEART FOR YOURS by Stephanie Campbell and Jolene Perry.
Winner will be announced on October 15th! Only available for Kindle or Nook. (Canada and US only)
Send in your first kiss scene by October 12 for a free critique by me, and a chance to have your scene read and critiqued by FOUR published authors (who just so happen to write amazing kissing scenes themselves). Top three will be posted on my blog and winner gets a 3 book prize pack consisting of SIGNED Paperback copies of What a Boy Wants by Nyrae Dawn, The Truth About Faking by Leigh Talbert Moore, AND My Heart for Yours by Stephanie Campbell and Jolene Perry.

Stay tuned for two weeks of nothing but KISSES starting tomorrow with a look at the first kiss between Talia and Lachlan in my debut Contemporary YA novel TIGHT KNIT.
For now here is a teaser:
I try to swallow, but I fail, and a bubble of air gets stuck in my throat. I cough and Lachlan laughs again. I really want to be mad at him, for putting me on the spot like this, but when the word ‘make-out’ comes out of his mouth I can’t stop staring at his lips. Everything else forgotten.
“Come here, Hat Girl.” He is still leaning forward, bracing himself on the low hanging pipe. He taunts me with his eyes.
I hesitate and then take a step.
This is such a bad idea.
