The Contest Creation Contest

This month’s contest will be a Contest Contest. No.. I did not stutter. That is no typo. It is a contest contest – where the person who comes up with the best idea for the October contest wins this September Contest-Contest (or perhaps the better name for it is the Contest Creation Contest) wins a book! Which book? You can have your choice of one of the following:

  • Solitude
  • The Moon Cried Blood
  • Warmth

The book you select will be autographed – the paperback version – and sent to you, so the prize is an autographed paperback.

This is when the author, Sumiko Saulson won a contest – the Best Troll on the ElfQuest page cosplay contest. Also.. she was the only troll. But hey. She’s Trinket.

The Contest Creation Contest

How does this work?

We have had some fun contests this year – some more fun than others. Do you remember the contest back in June where everyone was dressing up as a zombie or sending in zombie/ghoul/vampire artwork? How about last month’s Horror Haiku contest? Fun stuff.

This time, however: I have three book readings coming up in October. You know what else is happening at the end of October? I’m releasing my 4th book, a sort story collection called “Things That Go Bump In My Head.” So.. I have my hands full. That’s where you come in.

Between now and October 1st,  participants will submit their idea for contests for October.  These can be Halloween-themed, “Things That Go Bump In My Head” themed, or any other theme that would relate in some way to any of my current or anticipated titles. You post your ideas here:

You will post the following:

1) Clever name for your contest

2) Description of your contest

3) Tie-in to a book (of mine) or October (or Halloween) for your contest

That’s it! The person with the most votes wins, and usually we have people vote by just liking your comment, but last month we did a Poll and that worked very well, so this month we are doing a Poll again – the poll will list your contest NAME so it’s important to have a good name.

Have Fun!

Bootsy strongly objected to the “Cat Shaming Contest” idea.

But Wait! There’s More!

We haven’t gotten enough people competing yet, and the contest is ending October 1st, so now… we are going to also offer you a copy of the Sumiko Saulson short story of your choice on and a lovely, signed bookmark.. not the last bookmark, mind you, but the fancy new book mark promoting the shows coming up in October!
