News+Things: Winners, Reading, Contests to Enter!


New Contest: It's The Summer of Zombie Love by E. Van Lowe, author of Never Slow Dance with a Zombie

Friendship and love are in the air. And so are zombies! Let's celebrate by posting photos of you and your favorite zombie to the website... And if you are your favorite zombie, how about a photo of you and your non zombie best friend or boyfriend, or mother and daughter. Let's show off our Zombie Love this summer.

I will post as many photos as I can on the website. I hope we get a lot. The winners will be chosen by a guest panel (to be announced). Winners will be chosen weekly. The contest will run for three weeks, so there will be 3 winners--one each week.

Winners will receive a Never Slow Dance With A Zombie Swag-Bag. The bags will include a free autographed ARC of Never Slow Dance With A Zombie, a $20 Starbucks gift card (gotta have coffee to keep from falling asleep during the zombie invasion), some neat Zombie Love note cards, and other goodies.

The rules:

1) send photos (jpeg, mpeg or jif) to info@evanlowe.com with the words Photo Contest in the subject line.

2) Include your name and your friend's name as you'd like them to be posted with the photos.

3) Submit just one photo per day. You can submit everyday until the contest is over. (If I don't get at least 5 entries in a week, there will be no winner that week, and entries will roll into the following week. So tell all your friends).

4) I will post an many photos as I can depending in how many I receive. If I do not post your photo please do not get upset. Just send another.

5) Contest runs for three weeks, beginning Monday June 15th and ending Saturday July 4th.

6) Have fun! Comment on the photos you like. But no put-downs, please.
-GO AND ENTER! You know you want too. I'm going to try and submit some photos as well. Very exciting!

Oh, Hush Contest


Please get in touch because I didn't email everyone. I'll try and do so in the next day or whatever if I don't hear from you...otherwise, new winner!


I used to do these all the time, have a video of the day (though not every.single.day.) and I have one that I wanted to share right now since I just posted the Oh, Hush winner and it's something they created. They wrote a song called "Irresistible" and made a New Moon video, since the song works for the next Twilight film. It's quite fun, so check it out.

Question though: Do you want more songs of the day?!

There you are! What's your thoughts? Leave them in the comments as well!
