As a writer, I do like to play with people's lives in my head, and I started to think about how fun it would be to turn people's worst dating disasters into a happily ever after.
And the idea for Love and Other Disasters was born.
Starting In January 2017, I will rerelease The Walk of Shame and officially launch my new hot, contemporary series, Love & Other Disasters using your worst, most horrible dating stories for inspiration. I would love nothing more than to turn your disaster into a happily ever after.
I'm super excited about this series, and the contest. This begins the start of a new journey and I'm honored you've decided to play along.
IF your story is selected as the inspiration for one of the eleven books, you will receive the following Love and Other Disasters Inspiration package:
- Acknowledgment in the front of the book. - You will be gifted all 12 books in the Love & Others Disasters books in the series.- Have the option of having "your story" included in the back of the book you inspired.
PLEASE NOTE: If your story is selected, you will have complete say and control over your personal information. If you only want to be acknowledged by your 1st initial, or not at all, it's ENTIRELY UP TO YOU. Once selected, you will be contacted via email to find out your exact preferences, as well as get your expressed permission to use the story as inspiration for the novella.
