Father’s Day is coming! And what better way to celebrate than to hold a contest for all the fabulous DADS out there who work, raise families and pen magnificent stories, juggling their passions to do it all.
How many writer-dads do you know through social media and face-to-face writing events? A ton I bet. One of my favorite Writer-dads is Matthew MacNish of QQQE. That man is a champion of YA literature, a query-wrangler, is always helping other writers and is a terrific dad to boot! Then there’s Jay Donovan of TechSurgeons who is planning a guide book, is a beta reader, a techno guru of epic proportions helping writers everywhere AND makes his kids loads of homemade lava cakes. Heroes, these two, along with a million more out there!
Bottom line here? We love dads! You love dads! So let’s band together and celebrate some of the very special dads we all know in the writing community!
TELL US ABOUT A WRITER DAD YOU KNOW, AND MAYBE WIN THEM A FEW BOOKS!
Up for grabs? One 3-pack of writerly goodness:
The Emotion Thesaurus (winner’s choice, print or digital*)
The Positive Trait Thesaurus (winner’s choice, print or digital*)
The Negative Trait Thesaurus (winner’s choice, print or digital*)(*Print copies are available inside the US, digital only outside the US)
So tell us…
Know a Writer Dad & want the world to know how awesome they are?
Just post a comment below, nominating them for this prize! If they have a blog or twitter, link to it so people can visit. But most of all, tell us why YOU care about this person, and what makes them so awesome! (And please, let them know about this contest so they can come and read all the nice things you wrote about them!)
**Contest is now closed* A HUGE congratulations to Kimbra, who nominated Douglas Deane as her writer-dad pick!
Nominate as many writer-dads as you like, just create a separate comment for each to make it easier for us to draw for a winner. Good luck!
