Contest to Win Three Ebooks by Yours Truly and Three by Rose Gordon

What you win:

With Rose Gordon’s permission, I am running a contest for a chance to win three books I’ve written and three books she’s written.  These are ebooks only, and it can either be Kindle books or books off of Smashwords since Smashwords accepts all ebook formats.

For my books, you can pick any three that are on my website: www.ruthannnordin.com.  (I have too many to list on this post.  :D)

For Rose Gordon’s books, here they are on her website: http://www.rosegordonromance.com/index.php?p=1_2_Books

What to do to win the contest:

Write a “back cover description” of two of my upcoming books.  If you look at that product description on the ebook page or turn over a paperback to read the description of a book, then you know what I’m talking about.  The description that I pick is the winner.  So get those creative juices flowing and see what happens!

How many winners?

I am opening this up to two winners because I have two books that I could use descriptions on.

I have to add this disclaimer: if I pick your description for my book, you give up all copyright to that description, and I am free to use it on my website, on my books, and anywhere else I advertise for that book.  By entering this contest, you are agreeing to hand over the copyright to me.  Sorry to state something that is probably obvious to normal people, but I had an episode with someone who threatened legal action.  So now, I have to cover all of my bases.

The two books that need a description:

Shotgun Groom

This is Joel Larson’s romance.  April Edward is a mother of a one-year-old boy and has a 14-year-old brother.  After the death of her mean husband, she needs to find a husband so that her husband’s just-as-mean brother doesn’t come in to take over the farm.  Joel is a doctor’s assistant.  April’s brother goes into town and lies about April’s son needing medical assistance.  When Joel gets out there, he becomes a shotgun groom.  I don’t really have much else than that.  I expect it to be a comedy.  He will fall in love with her since it’s a romance.  The brother of her dead husband will cause problems, I think.  Since I haven’t started this book, it’s hard to know the details.  But I would think since this is a back cover description, no more information would be needed.  If I can think of something else, I’ll state it in a future post.

Isaac’s Decision

Isaac is Dave and Mary Larson’s first son.  He goes to school with Emily Craftsman (Neil Craftsman’s oldest daughter).   Dave has warned Isaac not to get involved with Emily because Dave doesn’t want Isaac to end up being a son-in-law to Neil.  (Remember when Neil abducted Mary at the end of Eye of the Beholder?  Yeah, that’s why Dave has bitter feelings toward Neil.)  So Isaac does his best to fight his attraction to Emily, but Emily isn’t going to fight her attraction to him. Needless to say, she pursues him.  About halfway into the book, the two elope, but then they have to come home to an angry Dave so the family tension is strong in this one.

How to enter:

Email me at ynotspringfield@aol.com and put “contest” in the subject line so I know it’s for the contest.

Deadline:

June 30 is the final day to enter.  Winners will be announced on July 1, and I will email them about which books they want.

    You’re kidding, right?

    Any contestants yet?

    • Nope. Dead serious. Back in 2008, a woman described His Redeeming Bride for me, and when we had a falling out, she threatened to get a lawyer on me unless I removed the description from the back of Eye of the Beholder because she wrote it. (This woman is not on speaking terms with her son, so that explains the kind of person she is.) Anyway, I have to state the copyright and description thing upfront in case someone decides they don’t like me anymore and want their description back.

      So far, there are four entries.
