I found an even better photograph of the victorious contestants. They were so happy they literally flew away...
DAWN ANON was the first who guessed that the bathtub was compellingly iresistable and JAY was so beautifully poetic about my appreciation for the wonderful people of Portland.
They have been instructed to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
And you all have to know when it comes to rules of my contests -- I follow the canons of the HEADLESS AUTHOR...
Now I know there will be cries of outrage.
There will be grumbling that the judging was not fair. That I was biased. That the rules were not followed.
If you have a complaint about my contest then talk to this AGENT and while you're at it send him your screenplay query or a proposal for your book of poetry. I hear he handles both now...
I'm still having a great time hearing what everyone likes authors to talk about.
So far I've got:
1. Minute details of every surgical procedure they've experienced.
2. Who they think should be the next American Idol and why.
3. Examination of the complex thematic elements found in the design of their cover art and how it relates to western mores and cultural variences.
4. Rocket science.
Maybe not that last one.
So what DON'T you like authors to talk about?
