Well, it turns out Elijah already had all the Bell Mountain books and only wanted to win the contest, so he says thanks, but give the prize to the runner-up. That would be Joshua, who only missed winning by the tiniest of margins.
So, Joshua, let me know which book you want (try not to make it Bell Mountain, I’ve run out of those and have to get more) and provide me with your mailing address.
P.S. to everybody else who would have liked to win: The next comment contest starts… now! Yup, it’s already started. Be the one to post No. 35,000, and win an autographed book. Yes, I know, that’s 2,000 more comments. It only means I’m giving you all plenty of time to get into the game. But don’t everybody just sit around waiting for it to get to 34,500, or it’ll take, like, forever.
