Books Are Forever Valentine's Day Contest

I wanted to do something fun and different for Valentine's Day and I was inspired by a meme that features the quote "If a writer falls in love with you, you can never die."  As a writer, I know this is true.  Both Erik and Jost in my novel have qualities that I admire in my husband.

So for Valentine's Day, I'm holding a contest for people to nominate someone they love to be a character in my third book.  Most likely it may be a name mentioned in passing, but who knows?  Imagine telling your Valentine that they'll be a character in a novel that global-warming-willing will survive for hundreds or thousands of years.  Personally I think that beats roses or chocolates any day.

The Contest
Tell me who you want to immortalize in fiction this Valentine's Day.  It can be a boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, sibling, grandparent, parent, your best friend, that cute guy at school, your favorite barista—whoever you want to wow this Valentine's Day.  It can even be YOU!  

The Prize
The nominated name will appear as a character in Crewel #3.  I won't know who this person is until I see the name.  They could be a passing reference or the most important person in the world!  As a bonus, I will send you a special signed copy of the page in which the character's name appears for posterity!

The Rules
Contest is opened internationally and will run from February 13, 2013 from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM.  The winner will be announced at noon (CST) on Valentine's Day!  See rafflecopter entry form for additional legal stuff.
