Caption Contest!

In honor of our adventures at the RWA Conference, my writing partner in crime Abby and I announce a brand-new weekly feature: Caption Contest!

Let’s begin with the most frightening car ever, which we passed on the highway on Friday. We were picking up the lovely literary agents Joanna Stampfel-Volpe and Diana Fox at O’Hare, and we were already a bit nervous. This did not help to calm our nerves:

How to Submit: Write an original caption for this image in the comments section below. You can enter as many captions as you like–one caption per comment. To be eligible to win, please mention and link to this contest twice through your social media–blogs, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

When: Submit your captions by Wednesday, April 28 at 12noon. Winners will be announced by 5pm the same day.

The Lucky Winners: We’ll choose 2 winners (one from Lara’s blog; one from Abby’s blog).

The Prizes: Each winner will receive a steamy cowboy romance novel and a “Spring Fling” tote bag, re-gifted from the RWA conference.

The Novel:
Cowboy rancher Neil McKenna Farrell had never felt the power of his grandmother’s legacy. He had no special gifts, unless calf-roping was included. But when he met sassy Annabeth Caldwell, a cowgirl at the Chicago rodeo where he was competing, he had a shocking vision of her in danger! Before he could explain, he and Annabeth were caught up in a robbery attempt and she was nearly killed — just as he’d seen. Something sinister was going on, and Annabeth had unwittingly become entangled in it. Without proof, Neil had no other choice but to protect her himself. Except who would keep him safe from her magical, mind-blowing touch.

The tote:

    Jimmy was a great salesmen but something told him he’d thrown a few too many extras as the Volvo drove off the lot.

    We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little hobbitses. Wicked, tricksy, false!

    Rather than recall all of their new line of suitcases, Samsonite merely added some small print that read: “Explosions due to over-packing may cause injury, comedic death.”

    “Chris, don’t be so melodramatic! Just tell your father to roll down the window.”

    (I’m nothing if not classy)

    Mrs. Headless Horseman finally put her foot down and Jasper was forced to cram all of his belongings into the hatchback and spend the night at a cheap motel.

    Billy got the “I spy” alphabet roadtrip game off to a great start when he spotted the sweet “Asphyxiated Corpse” in an adjacent car.
