Nicholas Sparks to Feature Fan's Adopted Pet in Upcoming Novel
Author Nicholas Sparks is teaming up with PetSmart Charities to give one lucky fan’s adopted pet a starring role in his next novel.
The best-selling writer (and screenwriter and producer) who brought us “The Notebook,” “A Walk to Remember,” and a bunch of other romantic tear-jerkers, is a long-time adopted pet advocate with three rescue dogs of his own.
The contest asks fans and pet parents to submit their pet’s adoption story and how their pet has affected their lives. Sparks will choose the most heart-warming (and probably most tear-jerking) story and the winner’s pet will be included in his upcoming book, as well as appear on Sparks’ website, along with an introduction by the author.
“Teaming up with Nicholas Sparks to promote pet adoption and celebrate the love our adopted pets give us is a natural fit,” Jan Wilkins, executive director, PetSmart Charities, said in a news release. “Nicholas is a huge pet adoption advocate and even includes pets in many of his novels.”
Fans can submit their pet stories to the “Fall into a Nicholas Sparks Love Story contest” here. The contest is open now until Dec. 14, 2014.
Good luck to all the contestants!
