Yes, I'm half a week late on this...but for those of you following our Summer Comedy Event, the second winner has been determined.
John of Learnmegood fame (yes, he's a writer, check out his books...ahem, right hand column ;) ) has picked:
Judi Coltman whose entry was "Johnny Marzetti casserole. Poor Johnny."
Congrats to Judi and to the future winners as we make progress with this contest through the summer!
I mean to make this post yesterday, but things got so hectic I didn't get it done.
I had a great response this week for our Summer Comedy Event and the #finishtheline contest. Thanks to ALL who participated!
I combed through the entries and narrowed them down to four that struck me the most. Then, the task of figuring out which one struck me as the best of those four.
It wasn't an easy choice, let me tell ya. I loved the absolute simplicity of three of these final four. I loved the play on words with one of these final four. In the end, I went with the choice that sounds most like what Jack would say, and since he is the main character in the free book, I felt that was fitting.
So...my line for #finishtheline was:
I jumped over the barbed wire and...
That's when I lost my pants. Honest, Officer!
And the winner is...Mariah from facebook!

Welcome all to our Summer Comedy Event!
Now, I know you're excited about this and for good reason. You're about to meet a few authors you may have never experienced before, plus have a chance to read some GREAT new work!
Here's how this will work. We'll post a contest on twitter with the hashtag #finishtheline each week. You'll have 5 days to come up with the absolute BEST finish to that line so that at the end of that week, you'll win a copy of one of that author's coveted books! Fun and fantastic prizes, right!?
Example: "If I just hadn't put the key in the ignition this morning..." You finish that line with the most fabulous thing you can think of and, if you have the best line, that author will give you ONE FREE COPY of one of their titles that week! Simple as that!
This contest will run on twitter every week. We will also promote the contest on facebook. Please join us in finishing the line AND promoting on facebook!
The official kick off to this contest is June 3rd, with the contest running the week of June 4th through June 8th. The last contest will run July 23rd through July 27th. Follow me on twitter @LATripp2818 to join in the fun!
We look forward to meeting a ton of you readers AND we look forward to entertaining you for a few hours of your precious time with one of our books!
Have a great summer!
