Giveaway: Ebook of Pretty Amy

Pretty Amy
I'm giving away 1 ebook copy of Pretty Amy from KoboBooks, Barnes and Noble, or Amazon. Sorry, open only to U.S. Residents. Must follow my blog. Winner will have 48 hours to get me a valid email address so I can buy/forward prize info. After that, I'll go to the second runner up, and on and on. I may actually choose the "best" story or I may use to pick from all eligible prom stories.

Like many (not) young people, new things frighten me. I try to keep a closed mind and learn as little as possible about the new things in the world around me. Why? Because nothing is as good as it was "back in the day." When milk cost $0.15 a gallon and bread was a nickel. Just kidding, I'm not that old. But, I still am just not up to the whole Rafflecopter thing. Registered, got interrupted, and it wouldn't save my contest thingy. So, I'm done with it for now.

Here's the contest. Tell me a prom story, a bad one. Well, you can tell me a good one, but since I'm only awarding a prize to the best worst prom're just not going to win. Look, I didn't go to my prom. I'm not bitter, I don't care. On the other hand, I'll feel better if I know I didn't miss much- that's why the award goes to the bad prom story.  Do you want to hear my bad prom story? Read below... you can click on the Youtube thing for this post's theme music:

My Junior Prom: My boyfriend at the time was not in high school. He did not want to go to the prom- first it was the tux issue. But, our prom didn't have a "formals only" dress code- I know because one of my friends took her boyfriend who only agreed to go if he could wear his leathers and Docs. (They probably closed this loophole the next year) Well, what it really came down to was he wasn't going to go to a stupid high school thing with my stupid friends. So, a friend (I repeat, FRIEND. Really. Just.A.Friend.) offered to take me since his girlfriend just dumped him. My boyfriend was not happy, but said okay if he could pick me up straight from the ballroom where they were having the prom. Great...I go and buy a dress and shoes, make an appointment to get my hair and makeup done, etc. Somehow the issue of prom tickets comes up. My boyfriend got upset because my friend bought the tickets. My boyfriend thought that we each should pay for our own if we were just going as friends. So, he said if I went, he was going to kick my friend's butt. (substitute the real word) I laughed, thinking it was a joke. A week or so goes by and he asks me what I'm doing on prom weekend. Duh, "Going to the prom." I get a call a few days later from my friend. My boyfriend and his friends came to school, followed him home, and threatened to kill him if he took me to the prom. And obviously, they knew where he lived. So, my friend cancelled on me and oddly was very uncomfortable with me for a long time after that.

I told you mine, now I want to hear your bad prom stories.


  1. I haven't been to prom either (in my school, usually only juniors & seniors go and I'm still a sophomore). But I read in my school newspaper/magazine thing once there was some food poisoning in a popular restaurant where people often took their dates to, and of course, it ended badly. Some people ended up going home, and some went to the prom, only to (mostly) huddle in dark corners and the bathroom. And when prom king / queen was announced, they were both suffering from poisoning o-o

    I suppose it's not as bad as the one you mentioned. But it's the only one I could think off the top of my head.

    And as always, your video was entertaining :D A little disturbing and scary, but entertaining. "Who's Johnny?"

    Thanks for the giveaway, by the way. And keep up the good work!

  2. I don't think we ever find out who's Johnny. But, there are two kind of iconic Johnnies- Johnny Carson from the Tonight Show. And that whole scene from "The Shining".

    I'm going to accept yours as a bad prom story so if no one else enters by July 4th, then you've won!

    Oops...I forgot to set and end date for the contest.

  3. The Contest will end on July 4th, 2012 at 11:59 PST.

  4. Hi! You just won the Liebster Blog Award!!

    Visit for more informations.

    Congratulations! :))

  5. Oh man, I didn't go to prom either or any dancing at my school. Didn't really fit in,we where the state basketball champs and basically a sports school.I don't really follow sports thus I was an outsider.I don't feel like I missed much.

    I did go to the Second chance prom in college,spilled red punch over my yellow dress.That was a bummer, but I still had fun.

    Not much of a bad prom story, but my dress was ruined,but it was from Ross,not one of those expensive dresses that most buy now.

    1. P.S thanks for stopping by my blog and helping me out by answering my questions.It was greatly appreciated :D
