Tony LaPlume, I assume, is still getting submissions for his 250-word-or-less story collection (details here) but what if you know more than 250 words and want to use those other words?

Well, my friend -- we're friends, right? -- you can now do that in Andrew Leon's contest to win the best chocolate in the ENTIRE WORLD.

The short version of the contest is: "Write a 7500 word or less short story based on 'The Imagination Room' featured in Leon's books The House On The Corner and suggested/mentioned in Christmas On The Corner", and submit it to him at his blog, by February 6, and he'll consider you for various prizes including chocolate.

Want more info? Read his post here. And enter.  That's his picture there to the right.  Doesn't he look like the kind of guy you want to win chocolate from? I agree.

I wish people could have waited a couple months on these contests. I am just too pressed for time now as it is.

Andrew Leon said...

Wow, I wasn't expecting a whole post about it!
And, yes, we are most certainly friends.
Let me see if I can remember all of your questions to answer here. If not, you'll have to check for the rest of the answers after I respond there.
1. They are not plain chocolates. They might have plain chocolate, but, if they do, I haven't tried any of those. These are just amazing. My favorite is the one that's a bit spicy while my wife likes the, um, Bordeaux Walnut (I think?).
2. Yeah, post the story on your blog (or wherever), and I'll link over to it. I'd actually like everyone to post their stories, but it's not a condition of entering.

Was that all? Darn, I can't remember, but the dog is nudging me, so I have to go take care of that.

I am indeed still receiving submissions. At the end of the month I'll start compiling the anthology.

Seven thousand-plus words? That's hard work (dedication!) for something based on someone else's story. But kudos on that. Hope people participate in droves!

No, not 7000+. 7500 is, theoretically, the cut off, so less than that. More than 7500 is no longer, technically, a short story, and this is a short story contest. Though, when Briane gives me something 20,000 words long, I'm not going to say "no."
