Today I was going to wax rhapsodic about the grand prize winners. However I find myself oddly tired, pressed for time, and feeling very thick in the head. I'm too tired to be all cleverness in my word makings.
So here's the bare bones version....
They = coolness.
Their fabulous prizes include:
1. I'll take them all out to dinner when I'm out in Indianapolis for Gencon.
2. Signed books, maps, and college survival guides for everyone on their team who wants them.
3. An early reading copy of The Wise Man's Fear, if such a thing would please them. If it doesn't, then I'll simply have to owe them a favor that they can call in at their leisure, all mobster style.
Now, before everyone gets all twitterpated and starts mewling for their own copy in the comments section. Let me just say, the book isn't ready to read yet. I'm still tweaking, re-writing, and revising.
Also, I need to say that I'm willing to trust them with an early version of the book because I've actually met these folks. They took me out to dinner a year ago, back before I was all award-draped and bestseller famous. They're cool, they're smart, and they bought me dinner. That + winning the contest means I feel I can trust them with an early version of the book.
Now before every man-jack of you starts trying to wheedle your own copy, let me re-direct your energies to something more productive: the next contest.
I'd like suggestions for making the next one even better. How should we handle it? More rules? Less rules? Different rules?
Discuss in the comments section below....
And it's bed for me....
