The Comment Contest

My photo contest is over, and unfortunately I didn't get as many entries as I would have liked. I don't know what it is with me and photo contests. This is the second one I've held, and both times the entries have been disappointing. I did receive a handful of very cool photos and those people will be getting the books they requested. The rest of you, I'm stepping up my prize the next time. A NEW CAR!!! Yeah, right. Hopefully it will be something to make you pull out your camera. I'm not giving up.

If you've been following the I Want You Back posts, you will notice that Tatiana has mentioned a contest. Well, here it is, and it's really simple to enter. You don't need to take a picture, so you have no excuse. All you have to do is leave a comment about the story or the artwork in the I Want You Back comment section on my website. For those of you who don't subscribe to my website and therefore have not read the novella, I have good news. We will be posting the link for the full novella here on the blog some time next week. It will also be posted on my website.

So what's the wonderful prize for leaving a comment you ask? Why the lovely mug featured in the photo above. A photo, by the way, that somebody TOOK THE TIME to take. No, I'm not bitter. Hey, I know you drink coffee... or tea... or tequila. Why not drink it out of one of my very cool I Want You Back mugs? I'm giving 5 mugs away in a random drawing around the middle of February. Five chances to win. I will post the end date when we post the link for the novella here. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment here:Click here: E. Van Lowe. The more comments, the more entries. Easy peasy, right? I'd love to hear from you. And don't you want one of my beautiful mugs designed by my good friend Tatiana? Of course you do? So comment already!

And finally, I had the most flattering thing happen to me last week. A fan did a Never Slow Dance With A Zombie video for her English class and posted it on her MySpace page. It's quite well done, and really creepy. Click here: Never Slow Dance With A Zombie Video by †Grace And Her Porcelain† - MySpace Video

My little book is like almost a movie already, huh? I am so lucky to have such talented fans. Thank you Grace and all your actors for making my day. Okay, now it's time for the rest of you to make my day... or not :-) Love ya anyway. But I'll love you more if you leave a comment ;)


  1. Hi E!

    Sorry about the disappointing results. I did submitted my entry but, I think it was late. I'm never good with time zones :(
    Hopefully, more people will take part in your next contest. I think a lot people are shy with photo contests...but, don't give up. You're eventually get people coming out of their shells.

  2. Thanks for the kind words, Thuy. Got your photo. You're in!
