Coming Monday: Official Kissing Day Blogfest

Saturday, December 19, 2009

I’m totally jumping on Sherrinda, Katie, and Krista‘s bandwagon here and planning to participate in their recently dubbed “Official Kissing Day Blogfest” on Monday.

Here are the guidelines from Sherrinda’s blog:

Official Kissing Day Blogfest

Monday, December 21st

A Writer’s Tribute to Mistletoe

Here is what to do if you want to participate in the Official Kissing Day Blogfest:

      1. Write a post telling about the Official Kissing Day Blogfest. This way more writer/bloggers will get the word and be able to participate on Monday, Dec. 21st.
      2. Tweet about it, using the hash tag: #kissingdayblogfest (I don’t know if this will help get the word out, but I thought it might be fun to try).
      3. On Monday, December 21st, post on your blog an excerpt from your current WIP, or write a new scene that spotlights a kiss or an “almost kiss.”
      4. If you are not a writer, or are uncomfortable sharing your work online, post your favorite kissing scene or almost-kissing scene from any book or movie.

**Please note that you do NOT have to do #1 or #2 to participate. I was trying to think of a way to get more writers to join in on the fun, but it is NOT mandatory! Just post your kissing scene on Monday for our reading pleasure!

Now to decide what scene I want to post . . . something from an older work? A teaser from A Case for Love or Ransome’s Crossing? Even though I plan to “write” in the car during my nine-hour drive to Baton Rouge tomorrow (yay for my new laptop and speech-recognition software!), I don’t think I’ll be far enough into Love Remains to have gotten to their fist kiss yet.

Hmmm . . . A Case for Love or Ransome’s Crossing?

    Is both an option?

      I don’t know . . . it would be SO worth the extra time it would take to read kissing scenes about both Julia and William, AND Forbes and Alaine . . .

      And yes, you can accuse me of begging. 😉

    You should definitely do both! 😉 I’ve put a Mr. Linky on my blog so we can see who is going to post scenes. So put in your link so others can jump over and read your sceneS!!!!!!

      I’ve linked up on your blog. Thanks again for taking the time to put this together. Wanna put together a blog tour for me for A Case for Love, too? 😉

    Thanks, Kaye! I’m hoping to read a lot of sigh-inducing scenes on Monday! 🙂 This whole thing just came out of some tweets with Katie and Krista one day. We all blogged about it and boom…it has blossomed into something really fun.

    A commenter asked if there would be a Mr. Linky and I had to google it to find out whatit was! Really, it would be a great tool to do a blog “carnival” to promote your books. All reviews and spotlights are done on one day and you could use Mr. Linky to spotlight all the blogs doing them. I’m just amazed at the internet and what it is capable of.
