All Right, a New Comment Contest It Is

Currently we have a little more than 32,000 comments here–so let’s shoot for 35,000. And to encourage reader participation, let’s make it a contest. Be the one to post Comment No. 35,000 and win an autographed copy of one of my books. Like The Silver Trumpet, for instance: Bell Mountain No. 10. Or any of its predecessors–although I ought to warn you that I’m just about out of copies of No. 1, Bell Mountain. But heck, there are nine others to choose from.

The contest is open to all, and all comments are eligible, with only the following exceptions: comments abusive to anyone else on this site, comments containing blasphemy or profanity, comments simply too fat-headed to publish, and ads disguised as comments (I still get one of those from time to time).

We’re talking about piling up another 3,000 comments, which might take a while, but it just didn’t seem right to offer a prize for No. 34,000. What kind of number is that? But 35,000 has a nice ring to it.

If you’ve already won a comment contest–and quite a few of you have–I don’t mind if you win another. It will impress your friends.

  1. I’ve won two. Now there are two new Maseratis in my driveway, which has nothing to do with the contest, and everything to do with my filthy-rich and very inconsiderate neighbor. OK, I made up the part about the Maseratis, but I did see one on TV, once. 🙂

    1. It’s the pull of a nice, round number. I couldn’t see setting the goal at 33 or 34 thousand–although I may have to, before long. But for the time being I want to see what happens to my comment totals.
