Wanted Posters Contest: More Prizes!!

It's winter, it's cold (for some of us) and so it's time for another event here at Edited. Time to warm ourselves up with some creativity.
Like this:


A YA historical novel based on the true story of teenage sisters catapulted to fame when they claim they can speak to the dead.  Celebrity status ultimately drives a wedge between them, when one sister captures the romantic attention of a dashing Arctic explorer who tries to "rescue" her from the family hoax.

Didn't Dianne do an awesome job on her WE HEAR THE DEAD Poster and Want Ad?

Check out Elana's enticing POSSESSION Poster and Ad:


A sarcastic, headstrong fifteen-year-old who is sick and tired of being told what to do. Must include broken Rules, daring escapes, and the promise of kissing.

Don't those books sound delicious? (They are--I've read them.)

Consider creating a Wanted Poster and Ad for the contest--explanation at contest post HERE. Or, here, on this contest page.

It's so easy, it's super fun, and you can win POSSESSION or WE HEAR THE DEAD as prize! Plus others!

Plus you get to showcase something you are working on (it's easier than a query), or a book that you love.

It just took me a few minutes to create a poster at Glass Giant.

Join in by adding a link to your Wanted Poster, when you're ready. Don't worry, the contest spans a few weeks (ends February 17th) so that you have time to rev up your creative juices.

And oops, I forgot to include my ROW80 progress on my Wednesday post. I am going great guns on the wordcount this week--Tuesday I even churned out 5K words. I'm super excited, and can't wait to get this novel all spit and polished! How's your writing life?


  1. I'm seriously time challenged, Heather, but I tweeted your post.

  2. Hey Heather, I have an award for you over on my blog. :)

  3. Heather,

    I created some Wanted posters of some of my favorite books but does that mean I'm giving them away? Or can I just post them to help promote?

  4. Wow, what a cool idea.

    And congrats on the word count. I think I wrote something like 12 K last week, which is amazing for me. Usually I don't power along some fast on a first draft.

  5. @Kittie--Thanks!! I know, we're all swamped, right? A tweet is so sweet, tho!

    @Rachel--Another sweet! Thank you so much! I'll be by to check it out. :)

    @Laura--Awesome! The only books being given away are the ones that appear here, on my blog. Everything else is you guys trying to win a book by creating a Wanted Poster. Thanks for joining in! I can't wait to see yours!

    @Stina--Thanks, and I am hoping to have another high wordcount this week, I'll hope the same for you. 12K is IMPRESSIVE!

    @Susan--Thanks for stopping by! :)

  6. Hi Heather,
    Here's a link to my poster -

    You can follow me on twitter @thewritejoyce

  7. @Joyce, Awesome! Can't wait to check it out! I'll add you to the link list. :)

  8. @Joyce--I redid your link, because I couldn't click through before. :) Thanks so much for the awesome entry!

  9. Came over from Laura's posters--these are great too!!!
