4th Annual U.S. Military Wives Contest--Open for Entries!

For the past couple of years, as a special thank you to our service members and their families, I've held a contest just for the wives of our military men. It turned out to be an incredibly rewarding experience. I had the privilege of meeting several incredible women and their beautiful families over the past few years, and some have even become good friends.

It’s so easy to forget that there are real people who are deeply affected by the conflicts overseas. Hearing the personal stories of these families helped me remember that our troops are husbands, fathers, brothers and sons who are immensely loved and sorely missed.

This contest will run from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend but start sending those entries in now!
Who is eligible?Wives of any U.S. military service member may enter. Retired or active-duty.
How do you enter? Send an email to info@novelromance.net with a picture of you and your family member in uniform. Tell us a bit about what branch he serves in, where you’ve been stationed, challenges and so forth. We want to hear your story!
Please put “4th Annual Military Wives Contest” in the subject line.
Once a week, beginning Memorial Day weekend, I will pick one entrant to be highlighted on my blog. These weekly entrants are semi-finalists and then Labor Day weekend I will announce the three winners.

Second Prize: A $25 Amazon Gift Card, Signed copies of Unleashed and Untouched.
First Prize: A $50 Amazon Gift Card, and signed copies of Unleashed and Untouched.
Grand Prize: A $100 Amazon Gift card and signed copies of Unleashed and Untouched
I hope you’ll help me spread the word about this contest. I look forward to meeting more incredible families!

  2. What a lovely idea! One suggestion: Make it open to military spouses, because increasingly, our troops are wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters, too. And as hard as it is for military wives to find support when their men deploy, can imagine what the experience is for the husbands left behind?

  3. Hi Shana-Thanks a bunch. I hope we get enough entries this year. Last year was a little slim.

  4. Hi Grace-I have opened it up to all Military Spouses in the past and I'm open to it moving forward. I have had active duty wives submit their husbands :) Bring 'em on!
