My friend Meredith Simmons is in the finals for Writing with The Stars--the winner will become a Kensington Brava author. This week, readers are voting on Best Love Scene. You can vote only once, but do it by Feb. 27 (the link is below). Everyone needs a little help from their friends...
Here's Meredith: If you ever want to feel the ultimate shyness, try putting a love scene online. That's the topic of this round's challenge in the RT/Brava contest. Ugh! In a novel, the love scenes can be something organic that grows out of the plot, but to pull the words out and leave them naked, well, that's very uncomfortable. You kinda end up with body parts and movement. I'm sure the other contestants found this as uncomfortable as I did. I obviously was the one who wimped out, however, since the judge pronounced my entry the "sweetest," which it certainly didn't seem when I sent it in.
If you want to see the results, they're up at www.rtbookreviews.com/content/writing-stars-vote-love-scene. And if you can do so with good conscience, leave a vote for me. :-)
