Story Plot Line Contest for It Happened One Season

St. Peters, MO: Rest of the day, snow showers, high 35 degrees.

Along with all the snow, love is in the air. In honor of St. Valentine's Day, here's a sweet contest with a deadline of Feb 14 that I discovered while visiting C. Hope Clark's blog. Her blog is one I check out regularly because of all the useful information about writing and contests. So, here's the deal about the It Happened One Season Contest:

Put on your thinking caps and submit three specific plot elements, and your ideas could create the theme of the four tales in a new anthology collection: IT HAPPENED ONE SEASON.

Four best selling authors will write a Regency historical story using the winning theme. The story must take place during the Regency social season and must include three specific plot points: (1) a couple meets at an inn (2) they had met before but not within the past ten years (3) the whole story takes place within a 24-hour period.

The four authors choose the four finalists, readers vote on the ultimate favorite, and one lucky winner will be acknowledged on the dedication page of IT HAPPENED ONE SEASON and receive a $1,000 American Express gift card and a copy signed by all four authors.

Semi-finalists will receive $100 American Express gift card.
Good luck!


  1. Goodness! I'm glad that I'm not the one who has to write it!

  2. Thanks, Donna for advising us of the "Sweet" ♥ Contest!!
