Here's the point system:
Leave a comment: +1 entry
Tweet it/Retweet it: +1 entry
Talk about it on your blog: +2 entries (make sure you send me the link!)

You have until midnight (eastern) on Thursday, February 3rd to enter and spread the word. I will put everyone's name into a hat (a virtual one, thanks to and will announce the winner this Friday! The winner will receive a $20 gift card to Starbucks Coffee!

Everyone stay safe and warm out there! 


  1. My WiP is in the genre of literary fiction ... I'm curious to see what others are working on.

    And coffee is the best!

  2. I am a children's writer both picture books and chapter. I'm warmer already just thinking of that beautiful coffee steaming.... :O)

  3. I love writing novels and children's books. At the moment I am writing a children's book.

  4. Such a fun idea, Beth! Clever.

    Women's fiction for moi.

    I mentioned it on my blog as well:

    Four shots at coffee, whoohoo!

  6. I'm working on a memoir, but according to an article in the NY Times today, I should give it up. With my body pumped full of Starbucks coffee, I shall fearlessly pound away at my keyboard and prove the author of that article wrong. :) Pick me! Pick me!

  7. Free coffee!! I'm all over that and have a cookie ready to dunk!

    I write inspirational romance--contemporary!

  8. What a sweet giveaway! I write in the literary fiction genre, with a suspense/thriller slant.

    I'm about to tweet this (@NicoleDwrites)!

  19. I currently have {gulp} 7 WIPs. All are in the fantasy/paranormal genre. I have a fairy princess story, a ghost story, a shapeshifter story, a witch story, a story about an ancient Indian legend coming back, and one I swore I would never write, a vampire story. I guess my muse needs variety.

    I don't have a blog set up yet, but maybe soon.
