Contests? Why, yes...fresh off the truck!

Two contests you very much need to know about...

1. Catherine Gardner is hosting a contest to help plan a werewolf's fate...and expose the deepest, darkest secrets of circus-folk. You could be a hero, and win a copy of the Malpractice anthology.

2. Nathan Bransford wants you to set up an account at ESPN and pick the winners for some sport that is, apparently, moving into finals. I think it may be basketball. What I did catch, though, is whomever does the best in guessing the brackets (not sure how that works...sports betting is well beyond my grasp) gets a query evaluation from one of Nathan's clients...he doesn't say who (whom? too lazy to check HOW9), but Nathan has some clout, and getting your query eval'd by someone who broke through his gateway may be worth more than a handful of magic beans to all of you novel and novella-makers out there.

**UPDATE**
Almost forgot about Natalie Sin's ongoing Pick the Winner contest...follow the linkie, pick a story, and the next one to get published wins you--yes, YOU SIR!--a prize! Step right up!

I don't fret over my hitcounts for this site, but I do check my Google stats every once in a while, and I would estimate that 75% of the hits I get go to a post from last year where I had a delirious dream under the influence of cold medicine. So every post shall forthwith contain the words Nyquil and Alcohol and Dangers. Mercedes thinks I should post a picture of myself in bright red lipstick, but I'm saving that as a last resort.

And, for really no reason whatsoever-- Lenore, the cute little dead girl:

Someone found my blog the other day by searching "prison bitch." Hope they weren't disappointed with what they found ...

Jeremy D Brooks said...

Sorry, Nat...I updated the post, hopefully I got the most current link...

Robert: that's effing funny...on my personal/family blog, I get hits for the weirdest, sickest crap, and it's all just pictures of us hiking in Tahoe and hanging out in Disneyland. The internets are broken.

Ah, that rare and radiant maiden whom the angels call Lenore.

Me likey contests.

Aaron Polson said...

I like me some contests, too. And dead girls.

(wait...did I type that?)

Now we all know, Aaron. Now we all know.

Somebody ended up at my blog by taping "demonic rape". Other people get there by typing "Butterflies". Demonic butterfly rape? Go figure.

My stat counter reveals an awful lot of 'how to make poisoned apples' - I think some online searches should be investigated.

Thank you for the link.
