Anniversary Book Give-Away

Bbookstack_2 We should probably call this the Anniversary Contest instead of Book Give-Away, but the fact is, we’re going to be giving away a lot of books.  A minimum of 14, to be exact. 

Below are seven childhood pictures of the Wenches. Your job is to guess who’s who.  Here’s how it works:

1.  Study the pictures and send your best guesses to me, Sherrie (click on my name) with the subject line, "Wench Contest."  DO NOT SEND YOUR GUESSES TO THE BLOG OR YOU’LL BE DISQUALIFIED. 

2. The person guessing all 7 pictures correctly will win an autographed book from each of the Wenches.  In case of ties, the names of those who guessed correctly will be thrown into a hat and I’ll draw one name as the winner. 

3. As an added bonus, we encourage you to suggest captions to the pictures for a chance to win even more books.  You can do that via the comments feature, but DO NOT include your guesses on the Wench identities–those go to me!  Each Wench will give one book to the person who, in her opinion, supplies the best caption to her picture.

The contest will end this coming Friday at midnight, Eastern Daylight Time, so you’ll have the rest of this week to enter.  Winners will be announced on Sunday, our usual announcement day.  Be sure to check back in case you won!

So, before we start:  Wench identity guesses go to Sherrie.  Suggestions for captions can be done via the comment feature.  Got it?  Great!  Let’s get started! (Click on any of the pictures to view a larger version.)

Wench1_3 Wench #1:

She stood happily alone, making up a story in her head.

Wench2_3 Wench #2

While picking blueberries at the age of two, this Wench shows an early tendency to get deep into her work.

Wench3_2 Wench #3

Wench sporting a tartan bow?

Wench4_2 Wench #4

Already determined to stand out from the crowd, this dark-haired Wench sits in the middle of her California cousins & demonstrates how (not) to eat a popsicle.

Wench5_2 Wench #5

Despite being blinded by the light, I’ve always been an Indiana Jones explorer.

Wench6_2 Wench #6

(Littlest one in picture) I liked romantic subplots in other books, but I didn’t read genre romances for years because the first few I read were frankly dreadful. Who knew what I’d be doing today???

Wench7_2 Wench #7

See? I always did have red hair!!! At least, then I did.

  1. These are just too cute. I confess I’m stumped on half of them…of course it is early Monday morning, so it’s not hard to stump me.
    Caption for Wench #3: In a vain attempt to keep me from looking up the highlander’s kilt, Mom tied me to a wall with this tartan bow.

    The acolyte mounted the stone dais to secure the captive’s wrists to the ancient iron hooks. It was a strangely familiar moment. Despite her city clothes and new responsibilities, it wasn’t that different from staking a goat on a new patch of grass. Stifling a giggle, she nodded to the crowd to begin the chant.

  81. Here are my pitiful attempts at guessing the inner thoughts of these wenches:
    1. This is my father’s land, and you Lord Scoundrel are not welcome here!
    2. I have no wish to be a “lady.” I can manage and work this estate as well as any man!
    3. Yes, I know exactly how to win the heart of the laird!
    4. You think you can fool us, but I see who you really are. You,sir, are no gentleman!
    5. You can try to hold me back, but nothing will keep me from my true love!
    6. Oh, look, there goes my sister sneaking off with the gardener again!
    7. Yes, yes, I know that I am the prettiest girl of the Season, but can we please just get on with this!
    As you can see, I am heavily influenced by the historical romances that I read! 🙂

  86. Great contest. I have made a pathetic attempt at the pictures. This is pathetic attempt number 2!
    Wench 1: The carriage drove away leaving little Amy alone with the dreaded Nanny.
    Wench 2: Lady Arrabella had always been a hellion, in fact Mr. Binstop remembered a particularly grubby face with mirth.
    Wench 3: Young Miss Pontefract sat for her portrait with a poise that belied her young years.
    Wench 4:Despite her Mother’s admonition not to, Lady Jane insisted on hanging around with the village children.
    Wench 5: There was a rather pretty folly in the garden where Alice went with her Mother.
    Wench 6: Sea Bathing became quite popular, although the bathing dresses left a lot to be desired!
    Wench 7: The worst kind of accidents always seem to happen before a Party.

    And I think I’m gonna draw my caption out of a hat. Ain’t no way I can choose the best. They’re much better than anything I could think of. Maybe we need to start a scrapbooking club!
