Cutest Pet Contest!

I love animals almost as much as I love my kid, which is saying something. Right now, we only have a hamster named Spiker (courtesy of my six-year-old’s kick butt naming skills,) but my kiddo is working us hard to get her a cat. We’re thinking about it, but in the meantime I want to see your pets!

In my book The Postcard, one of the characters adopts a three-legged dog named Joy. In The Letter, the main character is a horse trainer. Every so often I’ll slip a pet into the story, but not a lot. For the life of me, I can’ figure out why. I simply must remedy that as soon as possible.

But enough about that. Let’s get this party started. Here are the rules:

  1. Sumbit a picture either by email to mjpadgett@mjpadgetbooks.com OR by tagging me on Instagram. If your pet has a special story, tell me!
  2. It must be YOUR pet, not a random image from the internet, please.
  3. Unfortunately, due to shipping rates in the US right now, I can only offer a signed paperback copy to US residents. HOWEVER, if you are outside of the US and want to participate, I can email you a link for two digital book downloads if you win!
  4. Please submit pictures to me no later than February 1.

My daughter will pick the pet she thinks is the cutest, and I will announce the winner via a blog post!

Now… send me all the cuteness!!!

First Prize: Signed paperback copy of The Postcard (US only) OR digital downloads of The Postcard and The Letter (International) AND a full spread about your pet in my blog post!

Second Prize: The Postcard digital book download
