The "Out of Paisley's Closet" Contest

Paisley “wears” a cigarette holder the way other women wear diamonds.

I wish I could give away something out of Paisley’s closet.

Heck, I wish I even owned something out of Paisley’s closet.

In SCANDALOUS, my new ebook release from Book View Cafe, Paisley is emptying her closet… one memory at a time.

“The contents of the closet drew him. He pulled the chain that switched on the overhead light, and jewel-toned colors glowed from within plastic coverings. Pinks, reds, yellows, oranges—every color of the spectrum in what must be a lifetime collection of couturier fashion. A very long lifetime. He ran his hand down the row of dresses, and a very special one caught his eye…”

But that comes later.

Today I’m announcing a contest in the spirit of Paisley’s closet.

Since she uses clothes as armor and would rather appear costumed than “ordinary,” I’m hosting a contest for all the free spirits who like to play dress up.

Here’s a chance for you to flaunt your inner diva, demon, anime character, historical period or design statement.

It’s time to play dress up, peeps!

Send me a link to a picture I can share, or send me the picture so I can post it. Contest ends midnight December 4, the day that Scandalous is once again for sale–this time as an ebook. I will announce the winner Dec 5, to be determined by a drawing.


Send me a pic of you dressed up (see above) that I can show on my blog. Post the link in comments here or email me: planetpooks (at) gmail (dot) com.

I will draw numbers to determine the winner.


A copy of the book Scandalous (.mobi or .epub, your choice) and a $25 gift certificate to the book store or fabric store of your choice, as long as I can actually purchase it online! Amazon? Book View Cafe? Book Depository? Powell’s? Joann’s? Hancock’s? Hobby Lobby? If I can get the certificate online, you can win it!

Okay, let’s have some fun here!  Ready? Set? GO!
