Birthday bash contest, and tribute to moms!

Not many people know this about me, but I was born on Mother’s Day. Every year on my birthday, my mom would tell me how happy I made her the day I was born, and on those years where my birthday shared space with Mother’s Day, I felt even more special to share that day with my mom.

So, I’d like to hold a contest, both in celebration of my birthday (Hey, I like to share presents!!) and to honor those special women in our lives: those who gave us life (and those who didn’t), those who raised us and held us and rocked us to sleep.

Here are the rules:
Leave a comment on who your awesome mom is (or grandma, stepmom, mother-in-law, friend’s mom, or whoever) and why she is so special to you. Be as creative and sincere as possible, and I will pick my favorite. If there is more than one favorite among the entries, I’ll let my sweet little baby pick the winner at random. And who knows, your mom’s first name/personality traits could make an appearance in a future Primordial Guardians novel!
One entry per person for this contest. Entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM (Mountain Time) on May 12th, 2013. Winner will be randomly selected on or before May 15th, 2013.

What’s up for grabs?
The winner of the contest will have their choice of one of the following:
  • An autographed copy of Dark Seduction (Primordial Guardians, Book 1) or Passion Ignited (Primordial Guardians, Book 2).
  • An eBook copy of one of my Primordial Guardians novels: Dark Seduction, Passion Ignited, Born of Silence, or Rapture.
  • $20.00 Amazon Digital Gift Card.
  • $20.00 Evernight Publishing Digital Gift Card.
I’m also holding another contest on Facebook, so be sure to stop by the Primordial Guardians Facebook page for details.

Have fun, and good luck!!


  1. What a wonderful way to show all our "moms" how much we care. I was actually born on Father's Day, Katalyn, so I get how you feel about Mother's Day.
    I just have to say that my mom is pretty special. She's the epitome of someone who never stops learning. At 82, although she has Parkinson's disease, and her hands shake badly, she still gets on her computer daily to work on genealogy archives. I am amazed by her. Happy Mother's day to all "Moms".

  2. Hi Stanalei,
    Thanks for stopping by and for sharing info about your mom. Good luck in the contest! :o)

  3. The contest has ended, so Stanalei is the winner! Stanalei, please let me know which prize you'd like and how to contact you so I can get your prize sent to you. Congratulations!!
