Twitter Contest! Will you be my Valentine?

Friday, February 7th, 2014 • No Comments on Twitter Contest! Will you be my Valentine?



Won’t you please be my Valentine? I’m having a Twitter contest during this season of love to celebrate the release of my conversation-heart-inspired anthology XOXO: Sweet and Sexy Romance!


On Valentine’s Day, I’ll be signing my Cleis Press anthologies at the wonderful Fountain Bookstore in Richmond, Virginia. I’d love it if you’d stop by if you’re in the area, but even if you aren’t  you can enter this contest and support a fantastic indie publisher, an awesome indie bookstore and, well, me! Here’s all you need to do:

Follow me on Twitter at @kristinawright

Follow Fountain Bookstore on Twitter at @FountainBkstore

Follow my publisher Cleis Press on Twitter at @CleisPress


Between now and 5PM (Eastern) on Valentine’s Day use the hashtag #xoxo and tweet the following:

I want to read XOXO by @KristinaWright! (You can also get a copy from @FountainBkstore or @CleisPress!) #xoxo

(Or something else that at least includes at least my Twitter handle and the #xoxo hashtag.)

You can tweet as many times as you like between now and 5PM (Eastern) on February 14. Only one winner will be chosen. (U.S. residents only, please, but see below for a contest for International readers!)


At 5PM (Eastern) on Valentine’s Day, a winner will be chosen at random. And what will this lucky winner receive? Oh, this is a delicious prize!

–A signed copy of XOXO: Sweet and Sexy Romance

–A signed copy of Bedded Bliss: A Couple’s Guide to Lust Ever After

–A signed copy of Best Erotic Romance 2014

–A box of Valentine’s chocolates

–A $50 Fountain Bookstore Gift Card (good in the store or online)

Books, chocolate and a gift certificate for more books! So what are you waiting for? Be my Valentine (and don’t forget the #xoxo hashtag!) and share the contest with your friends, Twitter pals and postal worker (who could certainly use a prize after delivering all those Valentine’s Day cards!). And, as always, thank you for your lovely support. It’s you, the readers, who make it possible for me to write and edit sweet and sexy stories! Thanks!


Oh, and for my international readers: I haven’t forgotten you! Between now and 5PM your local time on Valentine’s Day, follow Fountain Bookstore, Cleis Press and me on Twitter and tweet the following:

I want to read XOXO by @KristinaWright! I’m in (your country). #xoxo

Of course, you should put your actual country in place of (your country) so that I know where you are! One winner will be chosen and will receive e-book copies of each of my anthologies above.


Happy Valentine’s Day, lovely friends and readers! May all your sexy, romantic dreams come true!
