Contests: a book and a publication

Filed under: Geek,Metalog,Profession — apotheon @ 03:34

I won first- or second-runner-up in a book-suggestion contest at Chip’s Quips, without even entering. Apparently, I get a free book out of it. I don’t know what book to get, though.

So, while you’re thinking about what to suggest as the next place I should get published, you can also think about what book I should request. In fact, I’ll make contests, complete with prizes, for each. While I won’t be so free with my money as Sterling, I’ll give a book each to the people who come up with the book I choose and the first place to give me more than $200 for an article, subject to my approval (I won’t be buying anyone a $500 book, for instance, or awarding anything but ridicule to anyone that suggests TechRepublic).

Get on it, folks.

edit: I may or may not limit it to $20, as Sterling and his benefactor Randy have done. I’m more inclined to be generous if I get another publisher for my writing. The contest is over when I say it’s over — which may be in a week, this Saturday, or three months from now. I’m leaning toward “a week or when I come up with a book to request, whichever comes first”.

  2. I wish I had a good suggestion for you, apotheon, but I haven’t yet explored that arena.
