WIP Wednesday: Winners, Start Your Imaginations

First things first, let's hear it for my October Contest winners:

Grand Prize: Gef Fox

1st Place: Anthony Rapino

2nd Place: K.C. Shaw

Fred, tell them what they've won...

"Grand Prize: You name and supply physical/psychological characteristics for a character in my next book. Here's the teaser: Four friends gather at their twenty year high school reunion to pay respects to a friend who died in high school... Within a week of their meeting, one of them is murdered. I'll leave it there, for now.

1st Place:
You supply me with two characters (general types, e.g., plumber--you can name them if you wish), a situation, and a setting, and I write a piece of flash fiction (of at least 500 words) to share with the world.You may even name the piece, if you wish.

2nd Place:
I will write a Friday Flash (of at least 100 words) with any title you supply."

As for the Coffin Hop winner, Jennifer Smith was among a handful of entrants who correctly identified Three Dog Night as the band "Monster Shindig" singer Danny Hutton fronted in the '60s/'70s. 

Winners, I'll be in touch soon--if you want to drop me a line at aaron.polson(at) first, go ahead.

Then there's this:

Five years ago, one of them never left the house... Now, they're back. Welcome home.

Coming soon.

Squee! I won something! Muahahaha, now I have to think of a really clever title for you to work with.

Anthony Rapino said...

Ha, awesome! This should be a lot of fun. Oh, and consequently, this post answered the question I DM'd to you on Twitter. ;-)

Aaron Polson said...

K.C. - I eagerly anticipate your effort. ;)

Tony - What? Because I used the wrong form of "here/hear"? Ha!

Unknown said...

Holy smokes!

I have going to have to cook somebody up for this one. I wonder if my character will be the one who winds up murdered. Bwah hah hah.

Thanks for the cool contest, Aaron.

Katey said...

Oh, I cannot WAIT to see what this yields. Such an awesome contest.

Aaron Polson said...

Gef - I'm looking forward to it.

Katey - My fingers are itching to type.

Danielle Birch said...

I LOVE that cover!

Cate Gardner said...

Congrats guys (awesome choices, Aaron)

K.C. Shaw said...

Okay, I've thought it over and I'd like you to write a Friday Flash story titled "Pink Unicorns."

And I said it in public so you can't back down!
