My friend Amy Gregg published a book called Magic & Madness. Here’s a link to her book on Amazon. I bought a copy when it came out in 2009 and we were both working together at a bookstore. It’s an urban fantasy about witches and wizards (it is not teen fiction and contains adult themes). It takes place in Minneapolis and St. Paul and she has included many references to buildings, stores and streets that anyone from the area might recognize.
Amy has just given me a signed copy of Magic and Madness to use as a contest prize on the blog! I love contests and giving stuff away. If you want to sponsor a contest, contact me!
Here’s the contest rules. You can do one of two things:
1) In 13 words or less, write a sentence or story that includes the words “magic” and “madness”. That’s it. Throw your 13-word entry in the comments.
2) Draw a picture incorporating the themes “magic” and “madness”. Throw a link to your image in the comments.
Picking a winner: On TUESDAY FEBRUARY 21st 8pm CST I’ll pick my top 5-10 favorite entries, throw those names in a hat and have the Hubby pull out a name. That person wins the book. I’ll announce the top 5-10 entries and the winner later that evening. If there are less than five entries, all entries will be thrown into the hat and a winner drawn from that.
You can enter as many times as you want, but only the most recent entry will be considered for the top 5-10 spots.
So, in words or pictures, tell us a story!
UPDATE (2/21/12) – On the advice of a reader, I am including the website of the publisher, North Star Press. If you have any interest in buying a copy of Magic & Madness, you can buy it directly through them rather than through Amazon (same price both stores). North Star Press is a local publisher that supports Minnesota writers.
