A Holiday Break and a contest!

The Long and the Short of it is closed for the holidays. Why?

Because we're growing! On January 4th we will include under its umbrella not only romance (LASR)and erotic romance (WC) sites, but also a Young Adult / Middle Grade fiction site.

We're very excited about beginning to promote the YA/MG genre and hope you'll join us in our launch of the Aurora site for YA/MG fiction. Click here to check out the new Aurora site.

Be sure and check out the reviews and interviews on the new site, and if you have any ideas about what types of things you'd like to see, let us know. We have high hopes for expanding into a few other areas at some point in the future. Let us know what you think.

In order to give us time to finish the preparations for that launch and to give us a much needed break from the daily chores associated with owning an incredibly busy website, we're "closed" for the Christmas holidays. But WAIT! Before you think nothing will be going on here, for the next two weeks you have the chance to hear from some authors who have agreed to guest blog here. AND.. yes, there is more (just like Ginsu Knives!): We're giving stuff away to people who comment on the blogs. WHAT prizes, you ask?

We're giving away two prize packages to two randomly drawn lucky winners (one to a commenter on the LASR guest blog, and one to a commenter on the WC guest blog).

Each Prize Package includes:
  • A hardback copy of "The Christmas Secret" by Donna VanLiere
    (leave a comment on the review, and earn an additional entry!)

  • A LASR/WC ceramic coffee mug

  • A PDF copy of "Now That We've Found You" by Marianne Arkins

  • A $10 Gift Certificate

  • And remember: beginning January 4, check our guest blogs on every Monday and Wednesday for new guest blogs (if you want to make sure you remember, why don't you follow the blog?). Beginning 1/4/10, comments on the guest blogs earn you an entry into our weekly contest. We hope you enjoy this new feature.
