Lean Mean Thirteen + 1

13cover.jpgKat's favorite writer, Janet Evanovich, author of the Stephanie Plum series of mystery/adventure novels, is running a contest (through August 31) to name book 14. The titles aren't tied to the plot just the atmosphere of the series. If you win, you get the title on the book, your name mentioned and a signed copy of the book :-)

Stephanie Plum is a Jersey Girl working for her cousin Vinny as a bounty hunter to pay the bills and buy more shoes. The strengths of the series are wonderfully quirky characters, high humor and a quick pace.

There's a form and rules at Name Book Fourteen.

Here's a list of her previous books to give you an idea of the type of title she uses:
  • One for the Money
  • Two for the Dough
  • Three to Get Deadly
  • Four to Score
  • High Five
  • Hot Six
  • Seven Up
  • Hard Eight
  • To the Nines
  • Ten Big Ones
  • Eleven on Top
  • Twelve Sharp
  • Lean Mean Thirteen
In addition to a lot of frequently updated material about her series, she also has a Q&A pages about writing (the source of the material for her book "How I Write"). (There's a link to it on her Plum Fun page on her home page if you're searching around her website for it.)
