To finish the cover, I need to add my back cover blurbs. Now I know some well published authors who I could get blurbs from, but these people tend to write serious, life-examining, tear jerking type stuff, and well, let's face it, that ain't my style.
Therefore, I have decided to be like Macklemore and "give it to the people." So here we go: free signed author copy of The Most Educated Idiot I Know contest #1.
Here is a random picture of my birthday cake from two years ago even though I am not 40 anymore because
- Posts with pics get more views.
- My God, look at all that chocolate.
To be eligible for the contest, you must like the Facebook author page since you will be identified on the cover (in part) as a Facebook fan. Next, leave your blurb submission in the comment section below the Facebook posting of this blog post and get as many people as you can to like it. The winner will not be chosen solely on the most comment likes, but this will definitely be taken into consideration.
"But Dean, what the hell do I say in a book cover blurb?"
Glad you asked. Think back cover of Tina Fey's Bossypants in the sense that you can submit a comment for a heading of "Praise" For Dean Roughton or for a heading of Advance "Praise" for The Most Educated Idiot I Know - where the term praise can be literal or used loosely.
You can say whatever you want, but this is a ridiculous book in a lot of ways, so the cover blurbs should attract a reader looking for something in the humor category. You may submit as many blurbs as you want, but use a separate comment for each.
Ok, I have procrastinated long enough. Now you go write some crap while I go write some crap.
