Contest Preview - "Ascension"

For all of you celebrating Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Winter Solstice, I hope you had a wonderful time! We're still recovering....

I promised a new Clarity of Night contest to kick off 2009. Since my last contest was in the summer, I'm pumping this one up! More and bigger prizes!! First place will earn you $50 in booty. Also, we'll have a guest writer joining us after the entry period closes. She has joined the ranks of former contest winners nailing her first book deal!

The contest will be open for the normal period of one week (give or take a day). However, I'm giving you an early peek at the picture so you can start thinking of what you'd like to write. The limit is 250 words. Any genre or form is welcome so long as it was inspired by the photo. Rules will be posted when the contest opens (the week of the 5th), but they will be the same as the last contest (posted HERE).

Start spreading the word! And prepare for your "Ascension."

$50 worth of booty? Oh, my... ;)

Great photo (and model)!! I can't wait to see all the shopping mall horror stories it inspires...

Looking forward to everyone's entries! What a wonderful way to start the new year off right. :)

Don't have an idea yet, but that will come. I'll have to find a way to mix in zombies and werewolves somehow!

Dang, that was too fast, now I've written it already, and you aren't ready for it yet! :-) Maybe I'll write more and pick the best of the bunch. ;-)

Oh, that kind of booty. Hehe. [good thing I read that through twice]

Yeah, well alrighty then. I'll be looking forward to when this starts. I think I have as much fun reading everyone's than writing...but I'll give it a shot.

Thanks Jason.

Fun contest! Will you send out lots of announcements when it's time for entries?

(I'm likely to forget otherwise. I'm lame like that! LOL)

Love the pic!

Hi again Jason, Would you mind if I posted about your contest, over at MPP? Im sure that many of my readers would want to join in and a lot are probably not aware of your blog and contests. Do tell....


A comment at MPP to confirm one way or the other would be appreciated.
