Kissing Scene Competition Info!

I am SO excited for this!!! *dancing*

The Kissing Scene Competition is only for those who entered the Blind Speed Dating Contest. So if you entered one of the Bouncer rounds, this is for you! If you didn't, you better go find an open window now!

The three winners will go through to the BSD agent round (with the entry they entered in the contest). BUT your kissing scene doesn't have to be from the same manuscript.

Those who have already secured a spot in the agent round can still enter this competition, but PLEASE note on your entry that you are already in the agent round. This way you will not take another spot, but can still receive an honorable mention from one of our Kissing Experts (judges) if they love your scene.

The Kissing Scene Competition will have two rounds!

Round 1 will be a blog hop. If you don't have a blog, borrow one or start one. Sign ups will start tomorrow (30th) and run until the end of Friday (1st). There will be a post here on the blog with instructions and a Mr. Linky sign up button.

You'll then put your kissing scene up for viewing on Monday the 4th. Everyone and anyone can then hop around to all the blogs and comment on the kissing scenes until round 1 closes on the 7th. Each Kissing Expert will be assigned a certain number of scenes to read and choose their favorites by commenting on those scenes' posts. A total of ten entries will pass through to round 2.

But that's not all!

As you read through the kissing scenes in round 1 there are awards that can be given out. Here they are:

Sweetest kiss: Sugar Lips Award
Most embarrassing/funniest kiss: Color Me Red Award
Most intense/hottest kiss: Get A Room Award
Most romantic kiss: Swooning Award
Most lovable characters: Cutest Couple Award

AND...

*Best overall writing: Write In The Kisser Award <-- This is our winning award!

Each of the Kissing Experts will be armed with these awards to give out to any of their entries. They can use all of them or only the winning award. Whatever they choose.

But also, all of you can give out these awards too! Just make sure you only use each award once!

Round 2 entries will be posted here on the CLC blog where all the Kissing Experts and myself will read through them all and vote for our favorites. This will run from 2/11-2/13. The top three winners will be announced on Valentine's Day and they each win a spot in the contest agent round!!!

EEP! I'm so excited!!! Did I already say that? Well, I am!
