Show Your Love
Ah February—the month of love. Why is it the month of love? Because if it wasn't the month of love, it would be the month of hate. We hate the snow, we hate the lingering holiday bills, and we hate the groundhog for seeing his shadow. So it's a good thing we have Valentine's day, reminding us that all you need is love.
Speaking of Love, the LDStorymakers is once again holding the Show Your Love contest throughout the month of February. The rules are simple, and the prizes are . . . well, let's just say you'll love them.
They are as follows:
On Friday, three lucky winners will receive a reserved seat at the 8th Annual LDStorymakers Writers Conference for Friday night dinner. Also seated at the table will be:

Author Larry Brooks
Senior Editor Marcia Markland

And one lucky grand prize winner will receive a
30 page manuscript review by Sara Megibow.
