Biting-Edge announces its first contest. It’s no ordinary writing contest. Forget the Pulitzer. The Nobel Prize for Literature. How can that fame and money compare against what you can win from us?
All you need to submit is the first paragraph of your original vampire story. A limit of 75 words. Enter any genre or style. Gothic. Romance. Humor. Urban fantasy. Anything as long as it’s good. Deadline, June 15, 2007. Unpublished writers only!
Okay you say, Biting-Edge, so I enter your contest. What fantabulous prizes
can I expect to win?
First off, there’s the honor and prestige of winning our Biting-Edge contest. That alone is worth millions. Submit the winning entry and you also get the coveted Devil Duck—the Hope Diamond of cheesy collectibles.
But wait, there’s more!
Win the contest, we’ll post your entry on this blog for the world to see and we’ll throw in these two nifty refrigerator magnets of Jeanne’s Anna Strong novels.
Awesome, no? The winner gets the Devil Duck, global exposure of your writing talents, and two Anna Strong magnets, but that’s not all!
To further tempt you, we’ll add this bonus: two buttons of Mario’s Felix Gomez vampire swag. Usually you’d pay big bucks to get these commemorative collectibles. Here we’re tossing them in extra.
So you can get the Devil Duck, world-wide Internet distribution of your entry, the Anna Strong refrigerator magnets, and the Felix Gomez buttons.
We at Biting-Edge won’t stop there. The winner will also get these Felix Gomez vampire P.I. postcards and that includes the ultra-rare pre-publication NYMPHOS OF ROCKY FLATS postcard!
To win all these fantabulous prizes, enter the first paragraph of your amazing vampire story. Submit by Friday, June 15, 2007 to Jeanne@jeannestein.com
The small print: Submit either in the body of your email or as a Word document. Times Roman, Arial, or Courier 12 point font (make it easy on us). Unpublished writers only. Cheaters will get the Mario Hairy Butt Punishment and you don’t want that! If you enter the contest and you get keyboard cooties, a meteor falls on your head, or the posting blows your witness protection cover and the Mafia does a CSI number on you, whatever, we are not responsible for anything except for the good things that will happen to you. HOLD EVERYTHING!
Did you think we’d let the winner get away with only the Biting-Edge honors, the Devil Duck, Anna Strong magnets, Felix Gomez buttons and postcards? This is a vampire story contest and what would that be without vampire teeth! Winner take all!
