Staying Home Party & NEW CONTEST!

Hello, minions.

Where am I today? At home. Workin'.

Where do I want to be today? At the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention is sunny Orlando, Florida. Running to workshops and signings, mingling with cover models (some of whom are more muscles than brains, but we try not to hold that against them cuz they're so darned pretty), and talkin bout books til I give myself laryngitis.

Luckily for poor, pitiful, stayin'-at-home me, there's a party going on over at the Samhain Cafe all this week! Two Samhain ebooks will be given away each day until Sunday, and trust me, there will be many other prizes to be had since this one was described to me as, and I quote, a "free for all." Sounds like my kinda party.

Now for the sad news: My Gigolo Contest winner never claimed her prize! Tragic! However, this means I have a Gigolo Kit, as seen HERE, that I need to give away to someone. So...

NEW CONTEST!!!

To enter the dynamaramic (yeah, I just made up that word, cuz that's how I roll) NEW IMPROVED GIGOLO CONTEST, send an email to contest@viviandrews.com with your completion of the following sentence: "I read romance because..." (Acceptable alternatives include "Romance kicks ass because..." and "I write romance because...")

The winner will be drawn randomly on Sunday, April 26th at noon (Pacific Time). On Sunday, I'll also post my completion of the sentence and a selection of your responses.

The fine print: Must be 18 to enter (cuz I'm giving away naughty bits and I don't want to explain to your parents why I sent you flavored warming lube. Just sayin'). Must have mailing address in US/Canada (sorry, New Guinea). Your email address will not be used for any nefarious purposes. If you would like your email address to be used for nefarious purposes, such as email newsletters with information on my upcoming releases, please put "Yup, newsletter" or some varietal thereof into the body of your email. Email addresses will not be given/sold/auctioned to anyone else. Your email is safe with me. (Mwa-ha-ha.)

EXTRA CHANCES TO WIN! You can only answer the question once, but if you join the newsletter group ("Yup, newsletter!") you get an extra entry into the drawing. Also, if you refer a friend, and your friend mentions you in their email, you get an extra entry into the drawing. So the number of entries you get is directly related to how many people you can manipulate into doing your bidding. Go forth and multiply, minions! (Can you tell I've been watching Dr. Horrible's Sing-along-Blog a lot lately? I think my evil laugh is improving.)

I read (and love) romance because I love to live a million lives and race the wind and go a mile a minute, and visit new and exciting places. Since I have to work for a living, and haven't won the lottery (yet) romance fills all those needs, and I don't have to leave home to travel and meet exciting people.

I read, write, and love romance because there is no better feeling than falling in love over and over and over again. Romance is my drug of choice. It's legal, affordable, and highly addictive. There is no rehab, but I wouldn't go anyhow. Intervention is not an option.

Yup...put me on your newsletter.
