A Contest - Shaking It Up

By Suzie Carr

A wonderful new twitter follower inspired me to host a book giveaway contest. Just like me, @smallville_nbd believes health and fitness is critical and would like to see more people enjoying the process of getting into shape so they can look and feel their best.

Here’s how to enter:

1. Follow me on Twitter (@girl_novelist)
2. Snap a picture of you exercising (walking, running, playing a sport, etc.) and attach it to a tweet
3. Included in this tweet, answer the question ‘why do you exercise’ in 140 characters
4. Mention me in the tweet (@girl_novelist)
5. Send to me by Monday, June 11 at midnight EST.

I will select the top 5 tweets that have inspired me the most and announce them in my blog. Those 5 winners will get a copy of one of my books—their choice— and in their choice of paperback or e-book.

Let’s inspire each other! Go snap some pictures… I’m waiting!

PS: @smallville_nbd is a very upbeat and positive person worth following!

Wishing you health and happiness!

I feel it's critical to support the community, and so I've committed to donate a portion of my book sale proceeds to the NOH8 Campaign (

Check out my series of LGBT fiction.

Hi, Suzie!

I just started to read about your contest and your profile and need to tell you that when I grow up I´d like to be like you (that´s what we say in Spain and Spanish) I am going to think about your proposal and send you a pic of mine (curiously I joined the gym yesterday one more time!) I am not a big fan of contest but taking into account how interesting your work looks like, let´s see if I can do that "effort"
do you sell your books in Spain?? I´d like to read one of them...I haven´t read lesbian literature for a while and it´s high time i get back to that (love literature, I used to write fiction more in the past but never got anything published)
Send you hugs (abrazos in Spanish)!!
I am @Evichipi in Twitter.
Have a great day!
