Save the Contemporary, Part 3: Instant Attraction by Jill Shalvis

UPDATE: The comments are closed but the good news is that Kensington is upping its copies for giveaway to 20! SB Sarah and I each have 10 books, instead of the original 5. We’ll announce the winners later today. Thank you so much commenters and thank you so much Kensington.


Here’s the deal: we dig this book. We dig this book like damn and whoa, and we think you will too. And yet, so many people say the contemporary romance is a dying breed. So, in order to spread the word and the opportunity to read it we’re doing a multi-level giveaway in tandem with our reviews of Instant Attraction.

Part the First: free books! Leave a comment and you’re automatically entered to win a copy. We each have 5 paper copies of the book give away, so drop a word here and at Dear Author and double your chances. Comments will be open for 24 hours starting now.

Second: Spread the Word! Below is a Sprout widget about our campaign, and a simpler animated graphic. Right-click-and-save the graphic, or grab the Sprout for yourself, and put it on your site. Let us know that you’ve done so via email ([email protected]), and you’ll be entered to win a copy of the book, plus a Flip Video Ultra Series Camcorder.

Spread the word, let us know, and you’re entered to win. That’s it.


The Spread the Word winner will be announced in 1 week, so tune in on Monday 26 January to see who wins a book and a really kickass video camera in our quest to Save the Contemporary.

Why? Because if there’s one thing that makes us sad, it’s the idea of contemporary romance dying out. So spread the word, buy a contemporary, and save the world.
