Love Letter Contest: Winner Receives a Tiffany & Co. Paloma Picasso Love Ring (No Fee & Deadline April 30, 2019)

I get a ton of press releases, announcements, and emails about new books, but every once in a while, one stands out.

This one stands out for a few reasons--the first is a "Win a Tiffany & Co. ring" got my attention.
The second is there is no fee to enter.
Third, the authors connected the contest with their new book (which came out yesterday)

Fourth, all I had to do was cut and paste!

While I was posting this to share an opportunity, I also realize the smart marketing behind this and appreciate that as well.

Anyway, authors thinking outside the box and you can win a Tiffany ring if you write the best letter, a win/win.
