It’s contest time!
So – who wants to be a character in my next book?
Yep – it’s that time again. I had so much fun doing this for book 2, I decided to do it again for book 4. Here is Theresa, with her experience as one of the winners from the first round:
I had already read the previously published book to The Claire Wiche Chronicles when Cate shared the news she was holding the character contest. Considering I had been checking her website every few weeks waiting for the next release, I was thrilled to possibly be a character! When Cate e-mailed me and told me I was a winner, I think I actually screamed.
She sent me a form asking questions about me, my life, my appearance and any special personality traits I have that I wouldn’t mind being part of my written character. It was really cool because I could tell she wanted the character to be as accurate as possible.
After I filled that out, all I had to do was wait. Her book released and I was one of the first to buy it. I didn’t realize how much I missed Claire and Annie until I spent time with them again, and Eric and Marcus were of course two heart throbs I was excited to read again. Then, Theresa came in and I was elated to see how much like me the character really was! Cate did a fantastic job at capturing my personality. I couldn’t have asked for a better depiction.
If Cate has any other contests like this I’ll be signing up again. It was so much fun, and since then I have gotten the chance to talk to Cate through her website and social media. She is as much of an amazing person as she is a talented writer. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
Not only did she appear in book 2, she has become a recurring character – she was in book 3, and will make another appearance in book 4, along with my other winner, Mindy.
Here are the details: to enter, all you have to do is leave a comment here or on the contest page. That’s it! Go crazy, have fun with it, make me laugh, make me think.
The contest ends December 31 so get those comments in while you’re thinking of it. I will announce the winner here and on the contest page sometime on January 1.
I look forward to some interesting comments!
Until then – read on. And the happiest of holidays to you and yours.
