Imprints $50 Gift Certificate Contest Begins!


Okay, today is the 15th, and time to begin my Imprints $50 Gift Certificate Contest. I will be asking questions about my new novel, Imprints, one every few days, and if you comment here with the answer, you'll get your name in the drawing for the $50 gift certificate to the bookstore of your choice. If someone sent you to my blog, write their name too, and they'll also get an entry. I'm moderating comments and won't post so no one can cheat!

Question #1

In relation to my book Imprints, what exactly are imprints?

Now this is an easy question, but they will get harder. You'll have to eventually read the book to get them all. Good luck!

Oh, and if you enjoyed this book, please let the publisher know (by clicking here) that you'd like to see more books for women in this genre. Every e-mail will help!


  1. Hi! I'm Jenn, and YOU sent me here, Rachel. :o) Okay, so the question . . . an imprint is an emotion, memory or something left behind on an object. The MC of your book is able to touch an object and see/experience what the owner was seeing/experiencing when they were wearing or touching it.

  2. An imprint is a vision of the person that touched the object. I loved, loved, loved this book. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for more.

    I am a "friend" on Facebook, that is how I learned about the contest.

  11. Imprints are the feelings/memories Autumn gets from touching certain objects that have revelance to a person's life. Lindy Palmer

  12. Rachel, first of all, your book was awesome. It is the first book of yours which I have read. My recommendation to readers: Don't start reading this book on a Saturday evening...unless you don't care if you fall asleep in church the next day. Let me know what I could do for you in relation to Deseret Book, etc.

    Answer to question 1: Imprints are memories, feelings, sometimes even whole experiences from people that are "imprinted" on an object. The more attachment a person has for the object, the stronger the imprint.

  13. My name is HOlly Bjelland, Rachel sent me through her facebook page. That answer is good or bad experience that are left behind on an object that is important to the person.
