I think you can see where I’m going with this.
Here’s a chance to win your very own custom made doodle!
That’s right! If you win, I will doodle whatever you want.
Don’t believe me? Here’s proof:
I do not like cats. I am allergic to cats. I chase feral cats off of my lawn. I regularly keep rodents (aka cat prey) as pets.
Last year, however, I promised Jilanne Hoffmann’s punk kid that I would give him a custom made doodle.
He wanted a cat.
He got his cat.*
HOW TO WIN
The winning name will be randomly drawn from a hat. The fellow drawing the name will be this guy:
He is fair, impartial, and lovably weird.
HOW TO ENTER
To get your name in the hat, all you need to do is leave an Interesting Tidbit about yourself in the comments section below.
I know “interesting” is a relative term, so let me give you an idea of what I’m looking for:
NOT Interesting: “My favorite color is orange.”
TOO Interesting “I once killed a mailman with a hammer.”
Go for something in between those two extremes, okay?
HOW TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING
You can get your name in the hat more than once by liking my writerfellow Facebook page.
As you will see, my numbers there are pathetic. I have 1,000 blog followers and not even 75 likes on Facebook? It’s ridiculous!
So if you like the Facebook page (or have liked the page already) I’ll put your name in the hat twice.
HOW TO FURTHER INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING
Well, now you’re just getting greedy. Play fair.
Your Interesting Tidbit is due on or before March 10.
The winner will be announced in a blog post on March 11.
The completed doodle will be posted on my blog. The original drawing will be mailed to the winner.
*That said, because I am a children’s book author, I am going to retain the right to refuse any doodle request that is pervy. So there.
So get commenting (and Facebook liking)!
