  1. Just wanted to point out that in the official rules, section 4. How to Enter, says “To enter the Promotion you must submit one (1) original story about a character who gets a big break (the “Submission”),” applies to the SMASH contest and not this one 😉

  2. Is it safe to assume that my entry can be completely fictional with no relation whatsoever to reality / what I would actually like my Valentine’s Day to be like?

  3. If you want to read the best romance book in the world read Perfect Chemistry or Chain Reaction or any other book by Simone Elkeles.
