Enter Jennie Nash's Mother's Day Contest Here!

The Threadbare Heart
Fabulous and local to me author Jennie Nash has a new book out, The Threadbare Heart.

To celebrate, Jennie is holding the following contest and it would mean the absolute world to both Jennie and me if you entered and if you entered right here at My Friend Amy!

The Threadbare Heart is a story about a mother and a daughter torn apart by grief, jealousy and misunderstanding — and the family heirloom that finally brings them together. To celebrate its publication, and in honor of Mother’s Day, I’m running a Favorite Fictional Mother & Daughter contest. We want to know which fictional mother-daughter pair made you laugh? Made you cry? Made you cringe? Which pair revealed something true about your own mother-daughter relationships? (And yes, mothers and daughters in film are eligible. Fiction is fiction, right?)

Here are the rules! You don't want to miss them!


1) Send me a short piece (250 words) telling me all about your favorite mother/daughter fictional duo. You may have noticed some other bloggers are posting about this contest. You can only enter at one place. (here! here!) Please send your entry to mypalamyATgmailDOTcom (replace AT with @ and DOT with .) By sending along this submission, you give me permission to post it on my blog crediting you.

2) ON MOTHER’S DAY, I will post the entry I like best. So please send me tons of submissions so I can get all teary eyed reflecting on mother and daughter relationships in fiction. The winner gets a signed copy of The Threadbare Heart and gets entered into the GRAND PRIZE!!

3) On MAY 16, Jennie will choose a Grand Prize winner from all the winning blog entries. (How will she pick? Whichever entry just hits her as being heartfelt and true.) The Grand Prize will be announced here (and ahem on the other blogs participating), on Jennie's website and on twitter.

From Jennie's mouth:
"The Grand Prize winner will receive a ―Book Club in a Box‖ — ten signed copies of The Threadbare Heart, a call-in from the author, and a delicious rum cake to share with your book-reading friends. (Why rum cake? You’ll have to read the book to understand! I’ve picked out a cake by a baker named Kelli because she started selling rum cakes when she lost her baking buddy to cancer and I loved her story - and I happen to think that good stories are a big part of a good life.) Happy Mother’s Day! Jennie Nash"

Don't delay! Enter today!
