Who's Your Favorite Fictional Mother-Daughter Pair? A Mother's Day Writing Contest

Who’s Your Favorite Fictional Mother-Daughter Pair? A Mother’s Day Writing Contest

The Threadbare Heart is a story about a mother and a daughter torn apart by grief, jealousy and misunderstanding — and the family heirloom that finally brings them together. To celebrate its publication, and in honor of Mother’s Day, I’m running a ―Favorite Fictional Mother & Daughter‖ contest with the fantastic bloggers listed in the box to the right. We want to know which fictional mother-daughter pair made you laugh? Made you cry? Made you cringe? Which pair revealed something true about your own mother-daughter relationships? (And yes, mothers and daughters in film are eligible. Fiction is fiction, right?)

HOW TO ENTER: On MAY 2, 3 or 4, visit one of the blogs and enter 250 words explaining your favorite fictional mother-daughter pair. Send your entry to me at These are some of the best blogs about books, literature and life. Have fun exploring them – but you can only enter on one blog. ON MOTHER’S DAY, each blogger will post the entry they like best. Each blog’s winners will receive a signed copy of The Threadbare Heart and will be entered in the Grand Prize Giveaway. On MAY 16, I will choose a Grand Prize winner from all the winning blog entries. (How will I pick? Whichever entry just hits me as being heartfelt and true.) The Grand Prize will be announced on the participating blogs, on my website and on twitter.

WHAT YOU WIN: The Grand Prize winner will receive a ―Book Club in a Box‖ — ten signed copies of The Threadbare Heart, a call-in from the author, and a delicious rum cake to share with your book-reading friends. (Why rum cake? You’ll have to read the book to understand! I’ve picked out a cake by a baker named Kelli because she started selling rum cakes when she lost her baking buddy to cancer and I loved her story - and I happen to think that good stories are a big part of a good life.) Happy Mother’s Day! Jennie Nash

**Blogger and I may no longer be on speaking terms. Jennie has a great flyer for this contest which will no doubt appear on everyone else's blogs today. But Blogger did not want to download it for me at all. Apparently Blogger and Adobe are not on speaking terms.
