Before I get to the contest portion of the program, let me first give a Happy Birthday! shout out to Betty Keira who turns thirtysomething today (she's looking 36 in the face...). Well do I remember the day - and why shouldn't I? I was a senior in high school when she made her debut.

Anywho...back to business. 

In order to celebrate the end of NaNoWriMo (and BettyWriMo) we here at TUJD decided to have a CONTEST!! That's what we're saying - but actually our contest idea had more to do with our serendipitous Black Friday find that we couldn't pass up.  A 1000 piece puzzle with 80's style Harlequin covers? Shut. Up.

 Winner gets this fabulous puzzle with 80's era Harlequin book covers (sadly no Neels).

  • Submit a pitch or a summary of Betty Neels style book to go with one of the Harlequin covers shown on the box.
  • Enter as often as you like.
  • Please email your submission to us - that way we can post them in all their glory.
  • Contest ends noon Pacific Standard Time on December 8th.
Here's a little better picture of the cover...the titles to work with are:
  1. Barefoot Bride
  2. Bargain Wife
  3. Where the Wolf Leads
  4. The Song and the Sea
  5. Flamingo P____ (Flamingo Park?)
  6. ______ Nolan (I see the edge of a nurse's cap AND a wheelchair....)
  7. ___ol's ______dise (probably Fool's Paradise)
Let the fun begin.
