American Title III Contest -- Breaking News!!

Posted by Kate
I’m popping champagne and blowing my own horn sexy contemporary romance, THE KAMA SUTRA CHRONICLES, is a finalist in the American Title III Contest!!!!

Woohoo!!! Champagne for everyone!! And we've got cake and ice cream and— that Godiva chocolate I see? Pass that around!!!

So here’s the scoop! The American Title contest is put on by Romantic Times magazine and Dorchester Publishing, and it's run in a similar style to the TV show, American Idol, with judges commenting and people voting and contestants being eliminated each month.

For the next five months, Romantic Times will post on their website a different portion of the finalists’ books, such as the first line, a page of dialogue, a short synopsis, a love scene, etc. You go to the website, read the entries, and then you vote for your favorite. **cough—ME!! –cough**

Each month, two finalists will be eliminated until there’s one winner. The winner will be announced in April at the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention and will be awarded a publishing contract with Dorchester!

This is the third year they've run the contest. The first year's winner was Janice Lynn with her contemporary romance, JANE MILLIONAIRE, and last year's winner was Gerri Russell with her historical romance, THE WARRIOR TRAINER.

This contest is intense and exciting and lots of fun. It all starts next month. I’ll be posting updates and schedules and reminders to vote on my personal Kate Carlisle blog, so come by and check out what’s happening!

Meanwhile…could somebody please pass the chocolate?? I’m gonna need it!

Kate!!! This is totally fabulous! I'm beyond excited!! I want to vote. You have to post here and tell us how to vote and when to vote. Because I want to vote...for YOU!!!

This is thrilling. I happened to have read said project and it's wonderful.

Don't say chocolate...I'm giving up chocolate for a couple of weeks and wheat and gluten and yeast and sugar and... I'm sipping lemon water. It's sooo disgusting.

Way to go, Kate!!! And oh yes, we'll all need to know the voting we can all vote early and vote often!! LOL

And to everyone else...perhaps it would be wise to walk a wide path around Susan for the next couple of weeks...just in case.

Oh Susan! Sorry I uttered the "C" word and caused you pain. We'll all drink lemon water instead, won't we guys? Guys??

Maureen, put that flask down!!

Of course, I shall drink lemon water. Tell me I sound sincere...

Susan, you have my total admiration and support. Truly.

Maureen, pass that flask....
