soul mates

May 1 = May Day = my birthday = gifts for you! It’s time to give back to all of you as my way of saying thank you for this life. So I’m starting my second contest today. The wonderful Melissa Walker and I have teamed up to present you with our Soul Mates Contest. Her new book, Lovestruck Summer, comes out this month along with Waiting for You. You can win signed copies of both books!

Melissa created this video of us, in which we discuss the contest prizes, the rules, and a bit about the things we like. I cannot take any credit for this video. Melissa filmed everything, then did all of the editing and text – I love her cute comments! She even added an outtakes section. Thanks for creating this sweet video, Melissa!

Here’s how the Soul Mates Contest works. (Note: You might have to use your headphones if you’re like me and are always meaning to stop by Shiny Happy Apple World for those gorgeous speakers, but somehow have not gone yet):

To enter the contest:

1. Leave a comment here to win Melissa’s books and gift bag or leave a comment over at Melissa’s blog to win my books and John Mayer stuff. In your comment, tell us about your favorite TV or movie soul mates who should be together but aren’t. If they eventually get together, that’s cool, just tell us about the time they weren’t and you were like, “Ring ring! Clue phone!”

2. Your entry will count twice if you post this video on your blog, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc. Leave the link in your comment.

3. You have until June 1 to enter.
