Comment Contest Update: 138 to Go

Quick update: only 138 comments to go, to No. 35,000 and a comment contest winner.

My deal with the Uffizi Gallery fell through, so now I’m thinking a nice prize would be a super-professional pogo stick, with a handy, easy-to-read booklet to teach you how to do all the really eye-popping, dangerous stunts to wow your neighbors. Or else you can opt for an autographed copy of one of my books.

Confidential to Joshua: Thank you for your patience! I’ve really got to get my book finished this week, and I haven’t been able to make it to the post office.

“The Temptation” update: Cover artist Kirk DouPonce says he’ll have a sketch for us this week. I can hardly wait to see it!

Comment Contest Countdown

This classic Roman statue of orator Marcus Junius Bagby, provided I can wrap up a deal with the Uffizi Gallery, can be yours! Great conversation piece for your living room, or your deck! All you have to do is win our current comment contest.

We are shooting for 35,000, and at this writing we have 34,755–only 245 to go. I do hope we have a winner before Thanksgiving, when I plan to start our first Christmas Carol Contest.

Viewership has slowed down very badly this week, with yesterday boasting the fewest views of any day these past two years. I am told contests inevitably push up readership. Well, okay, here’s the contest…

Now, if the Uffizi backs out of the deal at the last minute, the contest winner will receive an autographed copy of one of my books. Autographed by me, not Bagby. The Uffizi has a bad check he wrote once, but it’s in Latin and with lousy handwriting, to boot, so I can’t read it.
