Huge PGP Contest Books Giveaway UPDATED

Matt Bell had a contest to win Light Boxes, it was awesome, it's over.
And JA Tyler had a contest, it was also awesome, also over.
Shane did a contest, we got to see him on video, it's over, the winners won.

Now I guess it makes sense that the publisher would do a contest.

I'm doing two. It is very complicated. Read carefully. These two contests feature 12 PGP books given away, 2 books from other small presses, and more.

Write a poem and win! Here are the guidelines for the poem:

Four lines long
ABBA rhyme scheme
Each line must be four words long, no more and no less
There are no constraints regarding subject matter;
write about whatever you want
Submissions will be accepted until Feb 9 at 5pm
Winners will be announced by Feb 10 at 5pm

The poems will be judged (blindly) by Shane Jones.

Include the poem in the body of an email and send the email to Also in the email include your mailing address.

For this contest there will be 3 winners:
First prize
: Light Boxes by Shane Jones, The Origin of Paranoia as a Heated Mole Suit by Rupert Wondolowski, poem published in IsReads #6 and on this blog and turned into an inket-printed broadside and mailed to the recipient. **SPECIAL BONUS** This winner will also receive Mary Miller's Big World just released from Hobart. It's amazing.
Second prize: LB, Origin of Paranoia, poem published on this blog
Third prize: LB, Origin of Paranoia, poem not published anywhere

Everyone else will receive positive energy.

For non-writing readers, the first three people to email me (at the number I was thinking of when I emailed said number to Shane Jones will receive a copy of Light Boxes and The Origin of Paranoia as a Heated Mole Suit.

The first person who emails me the correct number will also receive a copy of Blake Butler's Ever from Calamari Press.

The number is between 1 and 50.

If three people don't guess the number before Monday, Feb 9 at 5pm, I will take the guesses that are closest (over or under, not like The Price is Right). I will announce when three people have won so that people don't keep emailing me numbers.

You can't enter both contests. You have to choose one or the other, and can only enter once.
This contest is good for US mailing addresses only. Sorry. If you are not in the US and would like a PDF of Light Boxes, you may enter the contest and even if you lose I will send the PDF.
Winners will be announced by Feb 10 at 5pm.

If you have questions, post them in the comments or email me. The address again is

The first prize for the number-guessing contest has been won. Jaimes Mayhew gets LB, ORIGIN, and EVER. Congratulations are in order.

Hey Brendan, yes you can do that. Please also include two different mailing addresses (one can just be your next door neighbor or something).

Blake, make the world go round.
