Today we’re hosting a blog tour stop for the crazy awesome new release from Allison Pang, A SLIVER OF SHADOW. It’s the follow up to a A BRUSH OF DARKNESS, and I LOVED it!!
To celebrate, I thought we’d play a little and give away a big prize!. I’m a Mad Libs geek, I think they’re hilarious. I’ve taken a short passage from A SLIVER OF SHADOW and removed a few of the words. Below is the list of the parts of speech for YOU to fill in. Please post your word choices in the comments below (numbered, so I don’t get them mixed up).
Tonight (after midnight, pacific) I’ll reply to each comment with the passage using YOUR words to fill in the blanks. You guys, if you’re not familiar with Mad Libs, trust me when I tell you that this can sometimes make you cry from laughing. Those of you who love Mad Libs like I do know how much fun this can be. I’ll also post the passage, as written in the book, for you to compare to your creations, lol.
One commenter will be chosen at random to win a copy of A SLIVER OF SHADOW *and* a set of stunningly beautiful trading cards designed by Darchala for the series.

Now that the contest is over, here’s the ACTUAL passage from the book. I loved this scene, so I was excited to see how the Mad Libs fit into it. So funny.
“I’ll stuff you full of pancakes tomorrow,” he said, capturing my mouth fiercely again. “And bacon,” he added, before turning out the light. His head settled on the pillow next to mine, one hand draped over my hip. “And when things slow down enough, I’ll make you a very happy woman.”
