The Latest Contest! “Anything for Love”

Love is a tough word to define. It’s sometimes best left to imagination, emotion, and example. For some, it is cuddling by the fire after a romantic, candlelit dinner for two. For others, love is a wild ride on the back of a motorcycle under a starlit sky, or perhaps a sunset stroll along the sandy beach with the waves lapping at your feet. For still others, love is simply when that special person is your last thought before sleep takes you and your first thought upon waking.

No matter what love means to you personally, it is something we can all appreciate. And now, the latest contest on Life Love Beauty is about love! Share your story about the craziest thing you’ve ever done for love, and you could be one of ten winners to advance to the next round!

Read more about the rules and guidelines…

To enter for a chance to win an autographed copy of Sandra D. Bricker’s upcoming book, Love Finds You in Snowball, Arkansas, submit a story of 300 words or more to [email protected]. Your story must be on the exciting topic: What is the craziest thing you have ever done for love? (In other words, what great lengths have you reached for someone you love? Your story can be funny, embarrassing, or romantic to the max, but it should express how you’ve thrown caution to the wind in order to impress someone or show your love for them.)

Life Love Beauty readers will vote on the stories they like best and participants are encouraged to share their story’s link with friends, family, and colleagues / contacts in order to gain more votes.

The Prizes:

The top three winners will each receive a signed copy of Love Finds You in Snowball, Arkansas.
