UnRealistic Goals Contest

29 Jun

It’s week 3 of our Twitter follower contest! @briaquinlan, @catehart, @mgbuehrlen and I (@dyromance) were talking about unrealistic goals. We decided to set an unrealistic goal for Twitter followers and then see if we could get it. My goal is to reach 500 followers by July 2nd. I currently have 251! :D

So now it is up to you all to help us meet our #unrealisticgoals! Don’t forget to tweet about the contest to earn an extra entry each week! The contest runs from, June 14th through July 2nd!


  • Winners will be chosen from new and existing followers. For each person followed, you will earn additional entries. So if you follow one person = 1 entry. If you follow all 4 of us = 4 entries.
  • One additional entry per day will be added for retweeting the contest information. Use the #unrelisticgoals hash tag and be sure to post a link to your tweet in your comments each week. (Instructions on how to get a link to your tweet.)
  • You must post on one of our blogs what your Twitter name is, which prize you want for that week, and provide a link to that week’s tweet about the contest. That means you will need to post in one of our blogs each week of the contest to get your first choice of prize.
  • Winner’s names will be drawn and they will be contacted via direct message on Twitter.
  • The critiques are open to international participants, but we are all broke so the book winners must be US residents. Sorry!

Mistress by Mistake by Maggie Robinson (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6954705-mistress-by-mistake)

Scandal Is Only The Beginning…

Charlotte Fallon let her guarded virtue fall once–and she’s paid dearly for it ever since. She swore she’d never succumb to men’s desires again. But even a village spinster’s life miles from temptation can’t save her from a sister with no shame whatsoever. Or a heart that longs for more, whatever the cost…

Sir Michael Bayard found more than he expected in his bed when he finally joined his new mistress. He’d fantasized about her dewy skin and luscious curves, assured her understanding that what passed between them was mere dalliance. But he didn’t expect the innocence and heat of her response in his arms. Nor her surprisingly sharp tongue once she was out of them…

A few days of abandon cannot undo the hard-learned lessons of a lifetime. Nor can an honest passion burn away the restraints of society’s judgments. Unless, of course, one believes in nonsense like true love…

Party by Tom Leveen (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6251198-party)

It’s saturday night in Santa Barbara and school is done for the year. Everyone is headed to the same party. Or at least it seems that way. The place is packed. The beer is flowing. Simple, right? But for 11 different people the motives are way more complicated. As each character takes a turn and tells his or her story, the eleven individuals intersect, and reconnect, collide, and combine in ways that none of them ever saw coming.
