Sorry–I am unable to award the contest winner King Tut’s throne, just couldn’t swing the deal.
How d’ya like that? I announce a comment contest, and people stop commenting. Must be on account of Thanksgiving: everybody’s busy.
Anyway, there are about 100 comments left to go to reach 10,000: and whoever posts No. 10,000 will win an autographed copy of one of my books. I was hoping to offer a rather grander prize, but this will have to do.
Anyone can play, and anything you say is eligible, with the following exceptions: remarks abusive to me or to another reader; comments featuring the f-bomb and other profanity (yes, I know, Science says that cursing proves you’re smart: but it won’t win you a contest here); commercials thinly disguised as comments; and comments simply too inane to bother with. Otherwise, anything goes.
The Throne has not yet been published, but it will be soon; and if you want it for your prize, I’ll reserve a copy for you. Note to self: Heidi (I think) has a copy coming to her.
