November 2nd also happens to be my 23rd birthday. Since I can think of no better present for myself, how about I give a present to you? ...And by that I mean "My editor is hooking me up with a couple free copies to give away at my discretion, how about I distribute them in a fun way?"
So, time for a contest!
Write new lyrics for an old Christmas carol that have a godless or scientific theme.
- Post your entries in the comments. If you're one of those people who's still having trouble commenting, feel free to email your entry to me.
- Make sure to include an email address when you log in or in the body of your post. If you win, I need to contact you about a mailing address.
- Arbitrary bonus points will be awarded for things like humor, Blag Hag inside jokes, and singing your song or making a video.
- And really, my rules are lax - if you want to remake a famous Christmas-themed story or poem, or do godless lyrics for the dreidel song, I don't care. Really, just make something in the spirit of the contest that you think I'd like, since I get to pick the winners.
And remember, the American edition is different than the version that came out in the UK last year. There are a bunch of new authors, like me. So even if you have that version, you may want to check out the new one!
*Yes, that choice of number is intentional. Don't you want to win it even more?
