I am SO EXCITED about the prize for this giveaway! We are thrilled to be giving away five (5) AUTOGRAPHED COPIES of the new Jackie Collins book The Power Trip — which is classic Jackie Collins, which means you guys are going to love it. It opens with a man getting shot whilst in flagrante delicto. How delicious is that?

Speaking of delicious:

NIGEL YOU ARE AGELESS. Coco is likewise generally flawless.

THE TASK: If you follow Jackie on Pinterest — which you should — you know that one of her favorite boards is called SMOKIN’ HOT and it’s just pictures of hot dudes. It’s awesome, and it will make you happy. In honor of those hot dudes, and the many hot dudes she’s written about, and all the hot dudes in her current book, please pretend that YOU are writing a Jackie Collins-esque novel (glamorous, sassy, action-packed fun) and describe for us the character you’d create who would eventually be played in the ABC Mini-Series Event by Nigel Barker as seen here.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Tuesday (giving you some extra time this go around.) We’ve been having issues with people being able to comment; if you run into technical issues, please ping us on Twitter so we can get a handle on the extent of the problem. Thank you!

THE PRIZE: You never forget your first Jackie Collins book. I totally stole my mother’s copy of Hollywood Wives when I was 12, and I LEARNED THINGS from it. It’s so cold outside right now, don’t we all need a book that makes us feel like we’re reading it poolside with a fruity drink and a hot pool boy? From Amazon: “A luxurious yacht in the Sea of Cortez, a birthday cruise for one of the world’s most beautiful women and an invitation no one can refuse.   The Power Trip—take it if you dare. From Hollywood icon and mega-seller Jackie Collins comes a thrilling new novel, The Power Trip, set on a state of the art luxury yacht off the coast of Cabo San Lucas. A tropical getaway with a cast of global power-hungry elites turns sour when they find out maybe they don’t control as much of the world as they thought. In The Power Trip you will meet Aleksandr Kasianenko, a billionaire Russian oligarch, as he sets sail on The Bianca. You’ll meet his sexy supermodel girlfriend, whom The Bianca is named after, and five dynamic, powerful, and famous couples invited on the yacht’s maiden voyage: Hammond Patterson, a driven Senator, and his lovely but unhappy wife, Sierra; Cliff Baxter, a charming, never-married movie star, and his ex-waitress girlfriend, Lori; Taye Sherwin, a famous black UK footballer and his interior designer wife, Ashley; Luca Perez, a male Latin singing sensation with his older decadent English boyfriend, Jeromy; and Flynn, a maverick journalist with his Asian renegade female friend, Xuan. You will also meet Russian mobster, Sergei Zukov, a man with a grudge against Aleksandr. And Sergei’s Mexican beauty queen girlfriend, Ina, whose brother, Cruz, is a master pirate with orders to hold The Bianca and its illustrious rota of guests for ransom. The Power Trip explorers the decadent playgrounds of the super-rich . . . and leaves you hungry for more.” FIVE of you will get an autographed hard copy to read on your yacht (or elsewhere). The contest is open to US residents only. Good luck!
