Just Kiss Already Blogfest

So, STINA and I have teamed up to do a Valentine's Day Blogfest. We figure it was *time* to have our characters kiss already, darn-it!

And we've simplified the rules so nobody feels *too overwhelmed* (like I often do when participating in blogfests)!

Here are the Details:

1. Sign up on Mr. Linky, below, or on Stina's blog.

2. On February 14th (Valentine's Day), post an excerpt from either your own work, or another's authors work you admire (give them credit, though), beginning at 7 am EST.

*But* make sure the excerpt is no longer than 250 words (it's tiring to read long excerpts). And if there's an intro to the scene, please, keep that short too!

Oh, and *don't forgot*, this is an actual KISSING SCENE! So go crazy :D

3. To make this *really simple*, we won't require you read everyone's entry (that's exhausting)! How about just 3-5 other entries?


Does that sound doable? Join us!


Mr. Linky is below!

I'm in! (Okay, you already knew that.) :D

Rachel Morgan said...

Just checking: it's ok to take a kissing scene out of another author's book (giving credit of course) if I don't want to write my own kissing scene?

Already told Stina I was in. ";-)

Christina Lee said...

Hi Rachel. I think it's okay, with credit, plus it's short. I've put other authors lines/paragraphs on my blog that I love and talked them up! ;-)

Frankie Diane Mallis said...

Fun! You know I'm in whenever it involves kissing:)

Dawn Embers said...

I like this idea except there is a kissing blogfest on the 14th that was announced yesterday. Tara has one called Hot Kiss (http://night-passenger.blogspot.com/2011/01/hot-kiss-blogfest.html). I could do both but man there is way too much lovey stuff going on blogfest wise in february.

*ponders*

Okay, I'm in this one too. lol

How fun is this? I am going to have to remember to check back for that : ) I would love to read a few kissing stories! : )

Melissa said...

I've entered!!!! (PS. hope the conference was amazing!)

Awesome - I've got some great kissing scenes (imho) in my WiP. I'm in! :)

Ellie said...

Great idea for a blogfest! I will add it to my blogfest page.

You can post another author's work but I believe there is a strict copyright limit of 300 words. Might be worth looking into it further.

Ellie, "fair use" says if you post a short excerpt (no more than 10% of the work) it must be attributed. And of course, (I would hope)a writer doing this blogfest, who wants to highlight a favorite kissing excerpt (no more than 250 words)will absolutely give that author props. We are all in this together and know how very important it is to give credit where credit is due. If you don't feel comfortable with it, then don't do it--post your own juicy stuff instead, right? :D

K. M. Walton said...

I'm 100% in.

Madeleine said...

Whoop! I did a no kiss (http://scribbleandedit.blogspot.com/2011/01/pulses-will-race-no-kiss-blogfest.html) so I guess I can go all the way LOL! ;O)
