It’s the most sugary time of the year…. Can’t you just smell the marshmallow? Yes, you guessed right: it’s time for the Fifth Annual Pinkorama!
(That’s really short for Pink Carnation Peep Diorama, but if I had to write that out each time, these would become very long posts.)
And, since this is the Tenth Anniversary of Pink Carnation, it means we’ve had half as many Pinkorama years as we’ve had Pink ones. I’d forgotten that we’d been Pinkorama-ing quite that long!
The rules are simple: using those sugary, marshmallowy goodies (Peeps), recreate your favorite scene from the Pink Carnation novels. Any of the Pink books, novellas, or bonus chapters are up for grabs. Even though it’s not technically Pink, I’m including The Ashford Affair among the eligible works, just in case you feel like going Edwardian Peep, 1920s Peep, or Kenya Peep and That Summer, for Victorian Peep and Pre-Raphaelite Peep (or Dorrington Descendant Peep). Two L and A Night at Northanger are also fair game.
Once your Peep creation is complete, take a picture (or pictures) of your Pinkorama and email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Pinkorama” in the subject line. I’ll post all the Pinkoramas here on the website and open it up to general voting.
The deadline for the Pinkorama is Monday, April 6. I’ll post the pictures and open it up to voting here on the site on Wednesday, April 8th.
As for the prize…. I would love to offer an ARC of The Lure of the Moonflower, but since I’m a bit late with the manuscript, we’re also late with the ARCs. So, instead, the prize will be an ARC of The Other Daughter, my next stand alone novel, which comes out July 21.

Let the sugary fun begin!
