New Contest for August

word-countthumbAugust is here and that means it’s time for a new contest.

Down in the lower right of my page, underneath the “Most Popular Stories” box, is a box that I update after every writing session which contains the current word count for my next book.  All you have to do is guess what the word count will be at midnight on August 31st.

Now, in order to keep people from waiting until 11:59 on August 31st to enter I’m going to stop taking entries a week earlier on August 24th.  I was trying to figure out a way to give people who entered earlier some sort of bonus for doing so (much harder to take a guess on August 1st than on August 21st) but I had little luck figuring that out so we’re just going with the one week delay. That should put everyone in a pretty similar boat as far as difficulty goes.

Good luck and have fun!
