Hello, H&Hers! In honor of the BookCon festivities ahead this weekend, we have a special treat we hope you'll enjoy: a Mad Libs-inspired word game we've dubbed Love Libs!
Come play with us in the comments today, and if you'll be in New York City this weekend, please do join us for what we're calling a “live-action blog post,” our BookCon panel “Heroes and Heartbreakers: We <3 Romance,” featuring authors Laurelin Paige and Kayti McGee (a.k.a. the writing team Laurelin McGee), and St. Martin's Press Executive Editor Monique Patterson, with Team H&H's Heather Waters and Jennifer Proffitt to moderate and generally gab about romance.
Here's more about the panel:
“Heroes and Heartbreakers: We <3 Romance”
Javits Center in New York City
Saturday, May 30
Macmillan Meeting Room 3139 on the Show Floor
(Note: This is a ticketed event, head to booth 3056, starting at 10:00 a.m. for a free ticket!)
Can't make it to the panel? Worry not! We'll do our best to tweet and Facebook all about it that day, and in the days after, we'll be hosting a post-BookCon sweepstakes for a chance to win goodies here on the site!
Now, onto the Love Lib!*
Here's how to play: Fill out the list below with the appropriate (or totally inappropriate) noun, verb, adjective, name, or body part. Complete the Love Lib by selecting the word from your list that corresponds with the bolded direction in the parentheses, and let hilarity ensue! Share your results by copying and pasting the list/Love Lib—that might make filling it out a little easier, too!—down in the comments, and/or tag us on Twitter with the funniest snippets at @heroesnhearts and @bookbrag, and follow all the fun with the hashtag #bookbrag.
*With many, many thanks to St. Martin's Press's Lizzie Poteet, the romance genius behind this particular Love Lib
[Let the shenanigans begin...]
