The Eyeball Contest

Those of you who have read the book understand that eyes have a certain D100D significance. And so, a contest. The Eyeball Contest Challenge: Describe your eyes in 10 words or less. Awesome words preferred. Beautiful descriptions favored. Wit rewarded. Gore appreciated. Humor always welcome. Prizes: 1st=A signed copy of The Dust of 100 Dogs (or your choice of a signed rare D100D ARC that I found & bought online. Even though I dislike ARCs, because they aren't the final version, I know people dig having them.) 2nd=A cool VOG (Very Odd Gift) & a book of your choosing from my giveaway shelf. 3rd=A book of your choosing from my giveaway shelf. The Catch: No one can win until we have 100 entries. The contest will end at midnight the day we reach 100 entries. So, spread the word! How to Play: Leave your entry and your email address in the comment area. There is a two entry limit. Winners chosen by a herd of rabid camels and two guys I met at the gas station. Good luck!

Wish they were still closed, dreaming of chickens & grain.

YES--I DID enter to close out this darn contest!

A twitching eye: Mark of a King, and a Chief Inspector.

Okay, that's not about my eyes...

Sara J. Henry said...

A.S. - ya can't enter your own contest! - that has to be in a rule book somewhere. (You especially cannot win your own contest.) And you can't close it until midnight, remember?

A.S. King said...

Sara -- I need you to come run my blog for me! You're so organized! But yes--when I got to 100, I changed today's WOW blog to reflect that the contest closes at midnight. Thanks!

Amy

A.S. King said...

Also--about me entering my own contest...we're pretty used to having a bit of fun around here. You'll get used to it! If you're looking for strict rules and stuff, you might want to try the third door on the right. I hear those guys are total hard asses.

Thanks for all your entries guys! Winner announced on Friday night!
