H&H Quickies #20: Megan Frampton—Prompt Me!

Lady Be Bad by Megan Frampton

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 Nicole MichaelsSusan AndersenRebecca ZanettiKerrigan ByrneLora LeighValerie BowmanAnne CalhounTessa Bailey, and more (see all the Quickies here), we are pleased to announce that Megan Frampton will be the twentieth 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 Megan Frampton with a historical romance theme. Once the prompting period is over next week, Megan will read over all 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 Megan used for the scene (woo-hoo!) for bragging rights. 

The rules

Prompting is open from now until August 11, at 5p.m. EST. 

Prompts can be anything, like a word (helmet), a setting (Ireland!), 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 from this particular challenge should have a historical romance theme. 

After you leave some prompts, that's it, your job is done for now! Just be sure to check back on August 25 for an original scene from Megan Frampton based on your suggestion!

Psst...if you're a newsletter subscriber, you'll get to see the full scene a few days early on August 23!
