MC Slumber Party Bash

Friend, fellow writer and reading fanatic, Lisa Gibson, gave me an idea.

Sometimes when we finish a book, we feel tied to the MC’s like besties.  We admire them for their awesome-possum personalities or near super human abilities.  We imagine what they will do after “the end” and would give just about anything to read one more page.  Just to keep our obsessions alive.

Well, now you get your chance.

I grant you unlimited funds, favorite MC’s as instant besties and a party to plan.  If you were to have a sleep over with your favorite literary characters, what would that party look like? 

  • Guest List (up to six)
  • Location/Time
  • Food
  • Games
  • Invitation Blurb

And to up the ante, I shall proclaim this a contest.  All you have to do is follow these simple steps by this Friday–April 9th:

  1. Comment about your party plans.
  2. Pass this contest along via your favorite social media preference, or…
  3. …blog about it.  Even a tiny snippet will do.  If you don’t have a blog, two seperate social media blurbs will suffice.  PS: don’t forget to include a link to this post.
  4. Shoot me an email at listing the links to where you spread the joy about the amazing MC Slumber Party Bash Contest.
  5. Lastly, feel free to subscribe to my blog–at least long enough to find out if you won.

For your efforts, I will randomly draw a number from a hat and pronounce the commenter with a matching digit as Slumber Party Royalty.  In addition to your virtual crown and undying loyalty, said Royalty will receive a copy of Author 101: Bestselling Secrets from Top Agents by Rick Frishman and Robyn Freedman Spizman.

That’s it.  So get planning…

Oh wait, just one more rule.  All characters must have their own sleeping bags.  After all, I do write for kids!

  1. Great idea Cate! I love this!!
    Okay, I want to have my party in the Hogwarts Castle (gosh I hope that’s permitted). We’ll put a memory spell on the muggles I’m bringing with me, so they won’t spill the beans on any of the magic. Everyone should show up about 7 p.m. (standard wizarding time).

    Invitees: Harry Potter, Katniss Everdeen (from Hunger Games), Alice Cullen (Twilight Series), Rowan Clark (Broken Soup), Sara (When It Happens) and Adam (If I Stay). I like the fact there’s a couple of guys in the mix too. 😉

    Food, hmm that’s a toughie. I would like some of the standard fare they have there in Hogwarts (pumpkin pasties, butter beer) popcorn all for munching on later. Probably pizza too.

    We could play the ‘get to know you game’ that they play in “When It Happens” (favorite scary movie – everyone answers, favorite salty snack – everyone answers, etc.) Adam could play music, Alice could teach us new dances or tell us with her visions what she forsees in our futures. Harry could give us ride on his Nimbus (okay that sounds kinda’ gross but you know what I mean).

    Join together for a magical night at Hogwarts Castle. BYOB (Bring Your Own sleeping Bag) for loads of fun and a night to remember.

    Yay! That was totally fun. 🙂

    • OMG, Lisa. I couldn’t stop laughing. I think I’ll pass on the Nimbus and be very thankful it is BYOB! So cute. Love your character picks as well.

      Thanks for playing, numero uno!

  2. Okay – this is so much fun! I’m going to have to put more thought into it than I have available right now – so I’ll be back 🙂

  3. Oh, fun. But I’m already having enough trouble with Arlee’s A to Z Challenge so I’d best not add any other blog events. But I’ll be back to read comments and see where the players are.
