I Did a Bad Bad Thing and it led to Contest Time!

Moon Over Paradise by Tom Brown

Missing in Paradise, a contemporary erotic romance with some bondage, is my most recent release and it happens to be set in an area I know really well - the Southern California coastline.  That's where I was born and grew up, and still visit a couple of times a year.

One of the more unique qualities to my home town is that it was known back in the day and still is as a artists' colony.  What does that mean?  On any given day you can walk down to the beach and see an artist painting.  Trust me when I say creativity, whatever way it might be expressed, was never discouraged.

Something I took away from this outlook on life is the ability to embrace the joy a painting can offer.  It doesn't have to be big, ornate or expensive, however, what it does is open a window for the viewer to travel through - much like a writer does with words.

So, with that in mind, this little jewel* of a painting, picked because I enjoy Tom Brown's work, loved it in particular and the subject matter/title - Moon Over Paradise - reminded me of Missing in Paradise, is the prize and all you have to do is tell me what the month/date your birthday is - yes, it's that simple!

You have 9 days [through September 18th] to either comment here [ensuring an email addy I can contact you at is present] or email me the month and date of your birth.

And, yes, this contest is open to those who live abroad as well!

Have fun and fingers crossed you get a bit of paradise :-)

*=Brown defines the piece thusly: "Paintings this size are known by various names such as miniatures, ACEOs (Art Cards Editions and Originals), postcard paintings or pocket paintings. And they are highly collectible. This painting is a mere 4”x3”. It can be displayed in an elegant frame, and yet it is small enough to fit in your pocket or use as a one-of-a-kind bookmark. It is painted with genuine oil paints on an art card and will be shipped in a plastic protective sleeve."
