Ready… Peep… Go!

Are you ready for the 7th Annual Pink Carnation Peep Diorama Contest? It’s spring, which means… it’s Pinkorama time!

The rules are simple: using those sugary, marshmallowy goodies (Peeps), recreate your favorite scene from any one of my books, novellas, or short stories. There are the Pink books, for Napoleonic Peeps; The Ashford Affair, just in case you feel like going Edwardian Peep, 1920s Peep, or Kenya Peep; That Summer, for Victorian Peep and Pre-Raphaelite Peep (or Dorrington Descendant Peep); The Other Daughter, for Bright Young Peeps; or The Forgotten Room, for New York Peeps throughout the ages. (Can’t you just picture that World War II Peep?)

Two L (disillusioned law student Peep), “A Night at Northanger” (ghost hunter Peep), and “The Record Set Right” (World War I or modern Peep) are also fair game.

Okay, so the title is a little misleading. I guess it’s really more appropriately a Willigorama at this point? But that doesn’t sound nearly so catchy as Pinkorama, so Pinkorama it remains.

Once your Peep creation is complete, take a picture (or pictures) of your Pinkorama and email them to me at with “Pinkorama” in the subject line.

The deadline for the Pinkorama is Tuesday, May 2. I’ll post all the Pinkoramas here on the website and open it up to general voting.

As for the prize…. Every entrant will receive a signed paperback copy of The Forgotten Room.

The winner? Will receive an ARC of my January 2018 novel, The English Wife. (To be mailed as soon as those ARCs arrive.)

If you’re seeking Peep inspiration, check out last year’s peeptastic entries or the Pinkorama Gallery!

Let the sugary fun begin!
