Hello there everyone!
I’m excited to announce that I am going to be an official judge for this year’s Your Laugh Line Book Contest. I will leave the official details below, but I wanted to share this with both my readers and supporters of this blog and my own writing, and to any authors out there who may be interesting in entering this contest. I’m so excited to be participating in this event and honored to have been asked to judge what I’m sure will be a great assortment of books to read. I will keep you guys posted when I get more info on the event, so stay tuned. For now, enjoy the official press release from Your Laugh Line!
Strap in! It’s going to be a hilarious ride!
Starting on February 1st, Your Laugh Line begins its official search to find the funniest books written in 2017. It’s like a quest for the Holy Grail (Monty Python or otherwise) but more important! Our hope is that this book is so funny that it will end all war.
Okay. Maybe not.
But we are looking for the best, hilarious books written last year.
The contest has two components. One is a Reader’s Choice Award. Readers can log onto https://yourlaughline.com/vote and enter the author and book of their choice. The author who receives the most reader votes will win $250 and an assortment of promotional help from Your Laugh Line.
The other component is an adjudicated contest for books submitted by authors and/or their publishers. The form is available at https://yourlaughline.com/laugh-line-humorous-book-awards. The cost to enter the competition is $20 per book. Those books will be judged by a panel of expert book reviewers. The winning author will receive $500, plus an assortment of promotional help from Your Laugh Line.
Authors can enter the competition between February 1st and April 30th. Reader’s Choice voting runs from February 2nd to August 15th. Books making it past the first round will be announced on July 1, second round list on August 1, and the final winner on September 1. Honorable mentions will be made for category-specific books.
Author or reader – come and help us find last year’s funniest book!
