Brawl & Haul Details -- LOOK!

The FABULOUS Janet Sumner Johnson and I are putting the final touches on the Brawl & Haul contest for next week.  We brawl and you haul away the loot!

In case you haven't heard, there's a TEN PAGE CRITIQUE up for grabs from Sarah LaPolla at Curtis Brown if you happen to write YA or Adult fiction.  (go ahead and check her out!)

Like every good contest, there have to be SOME rules, so here are ours:

1. You must be a follower of both blogs
2. When you comment, let us know if you prefer Grand Prize #1 - 10-page critique by Sarah LaPolla (Note: your ten pages must be for a YA or Adult work) or Grand Prize #2 - A Prize-filled Gift Basket
3. You can earn 5 bonus entries for the grand prize by spreading the word in any way shape or form (twitter, blogs, facebook, sidebar, etc.)
4. This is open internationally! Woo hoo!
5. Contest Closes Saturday 2 April at midnight EST. All winners will be announced Monday, 4 April

We may make some last minute alterations, but here is an overview of the festivities for next week:

Mock Me Monday - Janet and I will each post an embarrassing story.  You vote for the best (errr worst?) story and your comment enters you into a drawing for they daily prize.  If my story/blog gets the most votes, someone from my comments wins my prize.  If Janet's wins, she sends her prize.

Testing Tuesday - Janet and I will each post a short quiz to see how well you know us.  I'll post Janet's and she'll post mine.  Play along for your chance to win!

Wacky Car Wednesday - Janet and I vie to come up with the best personalized license plate for a MOST unusual car.  Vote for your favorite and offer up your own plates for your chance to win.

This vs. That Janet and I debate the virtues of some yet-to-be-announced topic.  Your vote determines the winner...and gets you entered for another daily prize!

To cap of a fantastically fun week, we are gonna divide and conquer.  
I'll be playing BLACK JACK here.  
Get 21, you'll get a bunch of entries into the drawing for the grand prize.  
If you play and manage not to bust and not to get 21, you'll get a couple entries.   
If you bust (over 21) you'll still get an entry just for playing along.  

Then hop over to Janet's blog to read a great interview with Sarah LaPolla at Curtis Brown and  let her know whether you want to be entered for Grand Prize #1 The 10 Page Critique or Grand Prize #2 The themed gift basket.

Here's a pic of some of the loot I have to give away.
