Hey, funky monkeys! With the official Month of Love starting, there will be plenty of romance-oriented contests and writing challenges on wattpad. You’ll be given prompts and different themes and asked to come up with a story. Well, I’m going to operate a bit differently: I’m not going to make you write yet another contest entry; I’ll let you submit the blurbs (story descriptions) to your already existing books.
♥ the blurb must be to a romantic story
♥ the story can be ongoing or completed
♥ it can be any genre
♥ it can be any rating (PG, PG-13, R, etc.)
♥ it can be any length (one-shot, short story, a full-length novel)
♥ it can be entered in another contest as long as submitting it in mine doesn’t go against the rules of that other contest
♥ you can submit up to two entries, but only one can win an award
Due Date: February 29, 2016
1st Place Award
There may be more than one winner. Each person will win all of these:
♥ a review on the first five chapters of the story with the winning blurb
♥ a review on the first three chapters of another story by the winner
♥ adding the winning entry to my reading list Winners
♥ giving the winning entry a shout-out in The Contest Book
♥ giving the winning entry a shout-out on my wattpad profile in a message to my 4.4K followers

Title: We are the Answer
Genres: Paranormal, Romance
Blurb: Rhys has been unlucky in love and even though his family supports him, he knows they are anxious for him to find the one he belongs with. He recognizes him in the face of Riley – a human boy who is not only terrified by the pack because he thinks they are a gang, but also laughs every time someone claims werewolves and the like exist. But Rhys has finally found someone to call a mate and he would do everything in his power to earn his trust and make him feel loved and safe.
If you have any other questions, ask in the comments of The Help Book (in this chapter) or in this blog; DON’T PM (Private Message) me on wattpad about the contest unless you can’t post your comment!
Good look, funky monkeys! ❤
