Do you think you can write worse than me?

I doubt it! But if you can write the first sentence to an awful novel, you should enter the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest. Check out these favorites of mine from this year's contest. First up: Crime!
And these two gems are from "Fantasy":

Want to win a free copy of THE BIG BOOK OF SUPERHEROES?

Then just head over to the Kidliterati site. At the bottom of its review for Superheroes is a spot where you can enter the contest for the book!

Oh, and speaking of the review, here's an excerpt:
I knew this book would be perfect for my kids, [so] I left THE BIG BOOK OF SUPERHEROES on the kitchen table. 
“What's this, mom?” my son said when he came home. 
I shrugged. “Oh, I thought you might like that.” 
“Hmph,” he said thumbing through the book. 
A half hour later he was still sitting there reading, an occasional giggle or snort escaping from his throat. 
Until his brother snatched it away. 
The book kept my sons entertained for days. 
I might be a mom, but I love superheroes as much as my kids, and I loved this book as much as they did . . . Trust me on this one. THE BIG BOOK OF SUPERHEROES is a fun, lighthearted read for superhero loving kids (or their parents).

I have a confession to make.

I've fallen in love with milk from a camel. And I don't care WHO knows it!
Yes, Desert Farms is real, alright.

Good point, Pooh!


If you think Winnie the Pooh has put on some weight, it's probably because of too many pancakes and pork sausage links—WAIT, WHAT AM I SAYING!?

Ooh, this reminds me that my parents gave me this charming A.A. Milne book, When We Were Very Young, in 1966. (Action figure sold separately.)
As you can see, I give my books excellent security!
