Say "Cheese!" and WIN!

You know what I haven't done in a while? I haven't had a silly contest with a silly sur-prize. So let's do it! (Heh-heh. I said "do it.")

I think this one should be a Silly Selfie contest. 

All you have to do is take a selfie and either email it to me at linda(dot)grimes(at)gmail(dot)com OR tweet it to @linda_grimes. 

Silly sur-prize will be revealed later. (Duh. That's why it's a SUR-prize, and not just a prize, silly.) But it will most likely contain silly candy, a (cheap) silly toy, and reading material that may or may not have been written by a certain author who may or may not be considered "silly" by some people.)

Winner will be chosen, on a purely whimsical basis, by moi. (Natch. My sandbox, my rules.)  

Hint: I find pics of people holding one of my books next to their face while sticking out their tongue and/or crossing their eyes to be VERY whimsical. ;)

BUT, if you are bashful about sharing your silly visage in a public place, entries will be accepted of people holding one of my books in front of their face, as long as they are accompanied by your solemn silly oath that it is indeed you holding one of my silly books.

Digital copies work, too. Just hold up your digital reading device with the title page displayed, and Bob's your uncle. 

Also, bear in mind that my books are in a lot of libraries, so if you don't already have one, no purchase is necessary to add that extra bit of whimsy to your entry. In fact, I love libraries so much, I might even be tempted to award extra silly-credit for silly selfies taken holding a library copy of one of my books. 

Or you could always send a selfie without one of my books. It's not mandatory, after all. :)

Best of all, anyone can enter! (Unless, of course, it is illegal for any reason where you live, in which case, follow the law.) Enter as often as you like. The only rule is--and I can't stress this strongly enough--NO NAKED SELFIES ALLOWED. I don't care how good you look sans clothing (and I'm sure you're breathtaking), I do NOT want to see that. 

There you are. Easy-peasy lemon squeezy. Just get out your smart phones, make (or hide) a face, click, and send it to me.

Oh, and let's see ... how long should I keep this contest going? 

I know! How about until the release date of All Fixed Up? That would be May 24, 2016. So you have loads of time to get your silly on. Just don't put it on the back burner and forget about it, because you don't want to miss out on the Silly Sur-prize!

I can't do selfies as I don't have that kind of phone and my camera needs to be further than arm distance away to be in focus.

But I look quite good out of focus ... hmm, maybe I'll give it a try.

Patsy -- "Out of focus" is my best selfie look. ;)
