Here Ya Go! The Winning Doodle!

The winner of last week’s doodle contest was the lovely and talented (and Canadian!) Silk Purse Productions. This is what she asked for:

How about something televisiony? I was a TV producer for years and confess that I am still addicted to the craft. Watch, watch, watch a lot of TV. Maybe just something with your version of me with the purple hair watching TV. It would be cool if the TV screen showed SilkPurse Productions.

Well, Silk Purse, your doodle wish is my command.

And the doodle winner is…


And here it is! The moment you’ve all been waiting for! The Official Drawing to see who wins an original, one-of-a-kind, Mike Allegra Doodle!

So let’s get started!

Here is the Official Judge with the Official Ballots wearing the Official Hat of Selectivity.

I have a bad feeling about this.

Please note that our judge is fair, unbiased, incorruptible, and indescribably odd.

Win a Doodle! Hooray and Huzzah!

I really like hosting blog contests!

And I really, really like doodling!

And I really, really, really like the fact that some people like my doodles!

So it is time once again for my semi-annual

WIN A DOODLE CONTEST!

Who will be the lucky winner? Will it be YOU?

 

The grand (and only) prize will be a custom made, one-of-a-kind, Mike Allegra doodle of ANYTHING YOU WANT!

“Anything?” you ask.

Yes, anything—provided that “anything” isn’t perverted. I’m a children’s book author, after all, so get your mind out of the gutter!

Otherwise, yes. ANYTHING!

Past contest winners have asked for all kinds of doodles. Like exotic birds…

A caffeine gnome…

A raven shapeshifter (whatever that is)…

A woman doing yoga and holding a pen as the ghost of her dearly departed dog looks on…

And (of course) that freaking salamander.

(It’s a long story. But if you must know…)

How to Win

The wining name will be drawn at random from the Hat of Randomness. The draw-er is this guy.

From left: Frosted Flake, flake.

He’s weird but fair.

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 subjective term so let me give you some idea of what I’m looking for:

NOT Interesting: “I like ice cream.”
TOO Interesting: “I hunt Armenians for sport.”

Please look for a Tidbit that falls somewhere between those two extremes, okay.

How To Increase Your Chance of Winning

Want me to stuff the ballot box in your favor? Sure! I’ll add two more ballots if you announce this contest on your blog and link back to this page. That’s three chances to win!

Don’t have a blog? No problem. I’ll also give you one extra ballot if you announce this contest on your Facebook page, Twitter feed, Pinterest page, or any other social media platform. (Be sure to post links in the comments.)

Want yet another chance to win? Dang, you’re greedy. Okay, if you’ve read one of my Prince Not-So Charming books (this one or this one), I’ll give you yet another extra ballot if you write a review on Amazon or Goodreads.

Deadlines, Etc.

Your entry is due on or before Monday, September 10. The winner will be announced on Wednesday, September 12!

So that’s it! Leave an Interesting Tidbit below and get going!

Good Luck!
