By now, many of you are aware of the intense campaign season going on, in the online March Madness DABWAHA book contest.
You know by now, of course, that many voters choose THE CHOCOLATE TOUCH and SNOW-KISSED to beat out Nalini Singh in the final round. And by many, I mean four people. A SIGNIFICANT MAJORITY, in other words.
You may even know that if THE CHOCOLATE TOUCH and SNOW-KISSED advance this round, I’ve promised a sneak peek of Dom and Jaime’s wedding, from the point of view of the person with the most to lose. THE CHOCOLATE TOUCH is up for vote Thursday midnight to noon. SNOW-KISSED Friday, midnight to noon.
But what you may not know is that, FIRST, we must face down a Major Threat.
Yes, this Charlotte Stein person we’re up against Thursday. You may have heard the name. You may even have thought that cover looks like one you could vote for:
But do you, does anyone, know the REAL Charlotte Stein?
When warned that her books were so hot they were going to melt this innocent kitten, what did Charlotte do?
SHE KEPT WRITING THEM. That’s right, people. If anything, she made the next one HOTTER.
When asked of her intentions should she win this contest, what did she say?
“I WILL RULE ALL WITH AN IRON FIST. ALL THE CHOCOLATE WILL BE MINE, MINE, MINE!!!”
YES. This is as close to an accurate quote as I can get without doing actual research to verify my references.
[And her followers said, YAY! They gave her a mandate for dictatorship!]
No, seriously, have you read this book? Do you know how hot it is??!! Click here only if you’re brave and have firefighter equipment:
Run To You
And don’t blame me when all the chocolate in your house melts the instant it downloads! I warned you.
Just watch. Watch what happened to these chocolates when left for 30 seconds in RUN TO YOU’s company.
[Note: Direction and voice acting by Little Miss Florand. Dom Richard's chocolates played by Fleurir Chocolate. Dom Richard played by Francis Cadieux. Well, by his stunt double, Muffle. Not sure really about the mustache, but think it might have something to do with a beret not fitting on his ears.]
DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOUR CHOCOLATES.
VOTE AGAINST HOT BOOKS EVERYWHERE.
VOTE THE CHOCOLATE TOUCH.
Which…well, it’s kind of hot, but THAT’S DIFFERENT. It’s hot WITH chocolate. Compatible. Melting at the right moment. In your mouth. Not on your hands. Which might be okay in certain circumstances, but…
LISTEN JUST SAVE KITTENS, OKAY? That’s all I’m asking. Dom Richard wouldn’t kick a kitten into the street, and NEITHER SHOULD YOU.
And SNOW-KISSED. But more on SNOW-KISSED’s rival later. That one associates with Greek gods and stuff. It’s all very suspicious, and we’re looking into it.
