I have a confession to make. I don’t really know how to run a contest.
I mean, obviously I sort of do. And I know I can make up any rules I want and stuff, but I never really understand those ones where you get points for stuff. But I want to do that kind.
You know, you get a point if you tweet about this, and another point if you blog about it. And definitely you get a point if you climb on your roof and shout about it. If you have a video of it and post that, you get at least 5 or maybe even 6 points.
But then what happens? Don’t I just use a random number generator anyway?? So if you had 3 points, were you number 4, 5, and 6? That seems awfully complicated to compute.
Besides, I kind of like the idea of having to compete for the prize. I want to judge you, you know?
But what should the question be?
First, the prize.
Let me start by saying that this contest was inspired by the package I received in the mail today: A hot off the presses, advance copy of the finished paperback version of the New York Times bestseller, SUPERNATURALLY by Kiersten White (that was kind of a mouthful, but I really wanted to get it all in there).
Now, as many of you probably know, Supernaturally is the 2nd book in the series. I can’t just give this away without giving away the first book in the series, PARANORMALCY.
But Michelle, I hear you complaining (why are you complaining???), that’s only 2/3 of the series. Don’t you know there’s a third book coming out really really soon?? How am I supposed to wait for that???
Well, first of all, that 3rd book (of course I knew there was a 3rd book coming out) is named ENDLESSLY and it’s going to be out really soon, as in July 24th!!!
But even better, you can win a copy NOW!! Right here!!! In this contest!!!
That’s right, I’m going to give away the entire trilogy to one lucky person!!!
All you have to do is tell me an alternate (no science required) definition of a Higgs Boson.
Oh, and also retweet this and reblog it and video yourself shouting it from the rooftops.
Winner will be chosen Tuesday July 10th!
*Contest is not open Internationally because there are too many annoying forms, but international people are welcome to participate (you just can’t win).
