Guest Blogger

I’m Jon Armstrong, and I’m the Shaken & Stirred guest blogger today. If you don’t know anything about me, feel free to check my home page:  Jon Armstrong.

Let’s start with some links:

Today’s Tournament of Books is Arthur and George v. One Good Turn judged by Kate Schlegel.

Both Condalmo and Coudal and have the latest odds for all of you heading to the betting windows. Please bear in mind that Shaken and Stirred neither condones nor authorizes wagering on literary works. These links are provided for "litainment" purposes only. However, donating is cool.

Play The Punctuation Game. This took me back to sixth grade when my teacher, Ms. Jones (who was hot and drove a Porsche!), called my mom in to inquire what the heck was wrong with me and my spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Oh, the bloody red ink!

Hear George Saunders. In a 20 minute podcast about Dubai, miniaturization, literature, and other stuff. Also see his take on Borat at the New Yorker.

Get a Free signed copy of my novel, Grey! –Yes, we’ve come to the shameless self-promotion part of this post. I’m announcing a book giveaway. You can find Chapter 1 here. The contest is: write the first sentence of Chapter 2 and leave it in the comments (be sure there’s a way for me to reach you). Best one wins a copy of Grey. Plus, I’ll sign it however you wish, including the always useful: Congratulations ebay Highest Bidder!

Next week I’ll announce the winner.

  1. Wow, I am really getting my ass kicked in the Tournament of Books. This just proves I have no bracketology street cred.
    Welcome to the site!

  2. The gauze covering my messianic wounds felt like the finest silk compared to the rough weave of the hospital-provided gown and sheets abrading my skin.
