Viva La Romance!

I've been busy helping my daughter's make their class Valentines, which has me in the spirit of red & pink, hearts & cupids. It has me dreaming of dinner overlooking the Eiffel tower and long walks down the beach.  If you're like me and ready to shed the winter doldrums in favor of some sizzling romance, I invite you to join in Oasis for YA's "That's YAmore Blogfest" -- starting this Friday!

Bloggers/authors benefit by participating because new readers will find their site.  Readers benefit because they'll find up-and-coming authors to follow before they get famous (exciting!).  Here's how it works:

Starting the Friday before Valentine's Day (that's February 11th), we invite you to post 250 romantic, swoon-worthy words from your YA WIP.  Then check out the entries from some of the other participants.  (Just be sure you have a fan and/or a cold glass of water on hand.)  We know your Valentine will appreciate you getting yourself in a romantic state of mind...

To sign up, follow these easy-peasy directions:

1.  Enter your blog name in the Mr. Linky (on the Oasis for YA blogfest page - link here)
2.  Get your post ready now and set the posting date to 12:01 AM on Feb. 11th (that way you won't forget)
3.  Please don't post any erotica or pornography - this is YA!!

25 bloggers have already signed up -- you're next!  (And if you don't have a WIP piece you're ready to share... please spread the love on Twitter, Facebook and/or your blog. Feel free to grab our badge.)  Thanks!!  We look forward to seeing you there.
