Last Friday, I said that I found Steve Blow’s take on the book Tinsel embarrassing. The marketing folks at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, publisher of the book, sent me a note of appreciation and offered up some free books. You know what that means. Contest!
If you’d like a free copy of Tinsel — a book I highly recommend — send me your best Steve Blow imitation. In 300 words or fewer, emulate his wit and style. For those of you who’ve been around long enough to remember the annual Write Like Joe Bob Briggs Contest, it’s like that. Only different. E-mail your entries directly to me, with the subject line “I love Steve Blow.” Since I suspect there are scribes at the DMN who’d like to enter, the winners’ names won’t be revealed. The best three entries will win a copy of the book. Contest ends tomorrow at noon.
