It's the "Writerly Habitats" Contest!

Today we’ll be exploring the deepest, darkest jungles of the Internet! 

Yes, we shall hack our way through overgrown thickets with machetes to observe the secret writing lair of one of the YA Valentines.

Now, I can’t tell you which Valentine this lair belongs to. You’ll have to guess. And if you guess correctly—and even if you don’t—you'll be entered to win a very cool prize.

So put on your wash-and-wear, wrinkle-free travel pants, dial your binoculars to “stalker,” and then have a look at the picture below:

Who do you think sits at this desk everyday and creates literary stardust? Hmm?

Now about that prize I mentioned. It’s a good prize. Maybe not as good as winning a miniature Vietnamese pot-bellied pig—that would be an AWESOME prize—but this is a close second.

Here it is:

I know, right? It’s a very cool t-shirt. And I know you need it. Weren't you just saying the other day that your t-shirt collection is getting kind of lame and that you needed to stop wearing that Hilary Duff concert shirt because it’s starting to date you a bit?

OH! And one more thing!

Simply because I like the look of your lovely face, Imma tell you this: The prize itself is a hint about who the owner of this desk is.

Do you know your Valentines well enough to figure it out?

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment with your guess. I’ll choose a winner at random and announce next Friday, August 2.

So get to it: Go! Guess! Win (maybe)! Sorry it can’t be a cute little pig!


  1. Dang! I KNOW who's writing lair that is so I can't win the T-shirt! (and you're saying, "Jaye you just gave yourself away!") Maybe. Maybe not. Mwahahaha.

    1. whose! whose! whose! (dang homophones and contractions)

  2. I know, I know! *pouts* wish I was eligible so I could win the cool t-shirt.

  3. I think it's Sara (Raasch)! That picture has one big hint in it ;)

  4. I can't think of an author who doesn't dream of a miniature Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. Just saying...

  5. I have no idea, so I'm picking a name at random: Lynne Matson?

  6. What a great contest! My guess is Bethany Crandell. It seems to match her picture, somehow.
