Top 6 Entries for THE MARK Contest Contest (Contest)

Apologies for the delay in posting, several (figurative) fires to put out at work plus a wife and puppy slightly under the weather can have adverse effects on blogging time. So, without further ado, here are the top six (up from five) entries in THE MARK contest contest (contest):

Honorable Mention #1:
A woman named Amanda Davies, who emailed to inform me that she shared a name with the female protagonist in THE MARK. No 'official' entry, but receiving a letter from someone whose name you apparently stole for your book is worth noting.

Honorable Mention #2:
If I win I will take my winnings and buy my son and daughter in law a telephone so I can call them when I am in the neighborhood and not worry about cell service. I hope I win.
My Dad

The first person to be The Mark by running around Boston with a target on their back flipping off drivers wins an ARC of THE MARK.
Bryon Quertermous

The first person to get photos of the couple's faces on the cover of 'The Mark' wins an ARC of THE MARK.
PS - Anything goes - Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie, or even Herman Munster and Lassie.
Jennifer Macaire

The first person to yell "Freebird!" at a Wayne Newton concert with an ARC of THE MARK (One million bonus points if Newton sings it, two million bonus points if his security people beat your ass).
John McAuley

The first person to interrupt a Toronto Maple Leafs game wearing nothing but a Russian flag and bunny slippers wins an ARC of THE MARK.

Two words: Meat Fight.
Dave White

And the winner of a signed ARC of THE MARK goes to:
The first person to tease her/his left nipple with a rusty fork while reading nursery rhymes while a prostitute dressed as a teddy bear murmurs, "dirty, dirty" wins an ARC of THE MARK.
Duane Swierczynski

Congratulations Duane. And may God have mercy on your soul.

You have inspired me. Terrific entries.
I realize now my contest was lame -- plus I don't have my ARCs yet -sometime in March my publisher says.
You are a month ahead of me - (my debut novel will be released by Putnam August 2, 2007).
It has been interesting reading about your journey.
So how hard is it to wear both the editor hat AND the author hat?

You chose porn over Freebird?
