Prompts are now closed! Please check back soon for the Quickie scene YOU inspired!
If you can never get enough of your favorite authors (and who can?!?), you are going to love H&H's author writing challenge, H&H Quickies. Not only will you get to read fun, original scenes by awesome romance authors, but said awesome romance authors will be writing those scenes based on YOUR prompts!
Following up on wonderful Quickie scenes by Kerrigan Byrne, Lora Leigh, Valerie Bowman, Charlotte Stein, and more (see all the Quickies, here), we are pleased to announce today that Rebecca Zanetti will be the eleventh author to participate in the H&H Quickies challenge! Here are the details:
For the next week, H&H readers are invited to leave comments on this post with writing prompts/ideas for Rebecca Zanetti with a romantic suspense or paranormal romance angle. Once the prompting period is over next week, Rebecca will read over all of the prompts and pick at least two that she finds inspiring, and use them to write a short original scene. H&H will then post the scene for everyone to read and enjoy (yay!), as well as reveal which prompts Rebecca used for the scene (woo-hoo!) for bragging rights.
Prompting is open from right now until August 21 at noon EST.
Prompts can be anything, like a word (helmet), a setting (Dublin!), a situation (a clubhouse party!), a description (tall, dark, and handsome!)...the sky's the limit! Just one requirement, to keep things interesting: the prompts for this particular challenge should be romantic suspense or paranormal romance theme.
After you leave some prompts, that's it, your job is done for now! Just be sure to check back on September 4 for an original scene from Rebecca Zanetti based on your suggestions!
