Comment Contest: Amended!

I’ve decided to change the comment contest.

We have 32,208 comments so far, and I first set the goal at 35,000. But after thinking it over for a couple of days, that looks like a not-so-hot idea.

So the goal is now set at 33,000. Whoever posts Comment No. 33,000 wins an autographed copy of one of my books. That’s less than 800 to go, folks–piece of cake.

Anyone can enter, and if you’ve won already, well, you can win again. All comments are eligible, except: comments which abuse anyone else on this site; comments containing blasphemy or profanity, no f-bombs allowed; commercials thinly disguised as comments (don’t even think about it); or comments simply too inane to publish. Other than the above, anything goes.

This should only take two weeks or so–right? Please prove me right, I’ll appreciate it.

Time for Another Comment Contest

See the source image

I don’t know what else to do today, and we currently stand at 24,068 comments on this blog, so, what the heck, time for another comment contest.

This time the prize will be a signed copy of The Silver Trumpet, Book. No. 10 in my–ahem!–award-winning Bell Mountain series, for the reader who posts the 25,000th comment here. I consider 25,000 a milestone, and I’m throwing the contest open to everybody. Even if you’ve already won. And if The Silver Trumpet is the first Bell Mountain book you get, it may move you to acquire the earlier books in the series.

Actually the book ought to have been published by now, but it’s been delayed by several last-minute glitches. Still, it’s coming soon. I don’t know how soon, but soon.

Anyone can win with any kind of comment, except for the following: comments containing blasphemy or profanity, comments abusive of anyone else on this site, thinly disguised commercials masquerading as comments, or remarks simply too inane to be of any use to anybody. Other than that, anything goes.

How long will it take to ring up another thousand comments?

Well, we’ll find out. Soon.

Comment Contest: <200 to Go

Yes, I know I’ve already said it was only a hundred and change to go, but that was because I mis-read the stats. Sorry about that.

There are fewer than 200 comments to go, and whoever posts Comment No. 9,000 will win an autographed copy of one of my books. I’m hopeful that Bell Mountain No. 9, The Throne, will be available in time for Christmas. So if that’s the one you want, go for it.

Anyone can play–just leave a comment under any post on this blog.

Ineligible will be comments abusive to me or to another reader, those containing the f-bomb or other profanity, blasphemy, commercials thinly disguised as comments–really, how does anyone expect to get away with that?–or comments simply too inane to bother with.

Comment Contest: Less Than 100 Left to Go

Just a reminder that there’s a comment contest going, and if you’re the lucky reader to post Comment No. 8,000 on this blog, you’ll win an autographed copy of one of my books.

Anyone can play. Just scroll down on any post and leave a comment.

Ineligible will be comments abusive to me or any fellow reader, comments featuring the f-bomb or any other profanity, blasphemy, commercials thinly disguised as comments, or anything just too jejune to bother with. Other than that, pretty much anything goes.

Can we generate a little excitement here? If you’ve never commented before–well, come on in!

Comment Contest: Less Than 100 to Go

I’d better throttle back on my own comments a little, so that I don’t wind up winning my own contest.

With fewer than 100 comments to go, whoever posts Comment No. 7,000 on this blog will win an autographed copy of one of my books. Anyone can play! Just scroll to the bottom of any post and “Leave a Comment.” (Note: if you’ve already won, don’t be mad if I pass you over and award the prize to the next closest reader who hasn’t won yet. My personal supply of books is limited, so I have to do that.)

Just about any kind of comment is eligible, with the following exceptions: abusive remarks directed at me or any other reader; comments employing the f-bomb or other cuss words, comments that are really thinly-disguised commercials (stealing space on my blog in an effort to sell something), or comments that are just too inane to bother with.

Comment as often as you like: no restrictions here. Well, not that kind of restriction, at any rate.

Wahoo! New Comment Contest

With less than 200 comments to go to reach 7,000, it’s time for another comment contest. Whoever posts comment No. 7,000 will win an autographed copy of one of my books.

Ineligible are comments that abuse me or another reader, drop the f-bomb, are commercials disguised as comments, or are just too inane to bother with. Everything else is okay by me–even if you disagree with me.

All you have to do is scroll down to the bottom of any post on this blog and “Leave a comment.”

If you’ve already won, allow me to pass over you and select the next commenter who hasn’t won yet. After all, my personal supply of books is limited.

Note: I’ll be happy to receive suggestions for other prizes to award, besides my books. What kind of prizes, I don’t know. A guest post, maybe? If you’ve got any ideas, I’m listening.
