Winner of the "This Kiss, This Kiss" Tote Bag!

And the winner of August's "This Kiss, This Kiss" sparkly tote bag featuring autographed books by Kimberly Frost, Karen Young, Linda Warren, Jean Brashear, and yours truly, TJ Bennett, as well as a vintage-style purse, is....


Erin, you have until September 4, 2009, to send me an e-mail either through my website or to tjb @ tjbennett . com (no spaces) to claim your prize. Otherwise, I'll have to choose another winner. Congratulations!

Folks, this has been another great contest, and if you didn't win, be sure to come back all next month for our September contest. We'll be visiting with five authors in September, so that's more stuff stuffed in our tote bag. The authors will be discussing September's theme, "Back to School: Interesting Things I Learned from Writing/Reading Romance." Here is the lineup:

September 2: Gerry Bartlett, best-selling author of the Real Vampires paranormal romance series.

September 9: Annette McCleave, debut author of dark paranormal romance.

September 16: Ann Macela , multi-published, award-winning Medallion Press author of the Magic series.

September 23:Heather MacAllister, USA Today bestselling author of contemporary series romance and three-time RITA® nominee.

September 30: Vicki Hinze, multi-published, best-selling, award-winning author of just about every genre of romance in existence (and one or two she invented herself!).

I'll also throw in a $20 gift card to Barnes and Noble, and a hilarious "Mixed-up Romance Novel" Magnetic Poetry Kit so you can learn to write your very own romance novel the easy way: randomly! Here's an example of a snip-it I just created from the kit:

"Overwhelmed with passion/his loincloth barely concealed/his turgid pleasure rod."

Hey, ya gotta start somewhere, right? Have a blast with this one, because I can guarantee you it isn't that easy (and, really, my stuff is way better than that).

Anyway, it will be another wonderful month at IMHO, so be sure to join us beginning Wednesday, September 2, 2009!
