Let's have a bit of fun! Will you play? If you play, you can win $20 Amazon gift card + more!

Okay, let’s have a bit of fun with words. You in? It’ll be short and sweet and funny.

I promise.

And you can win somethin’ for just having a bit of fun.

Adam and I are celebrating the speedy progress of Degenerate Dictionary. And we are giving away two $20 Amazon gift cards.

I’m also throwing in any eBook of mine that you wish to have (i.e. ALL of them if you want them.)

There are two ways you can enter:

The FUN way:
Write an example sentence using one of our Degenerate Dictionary words and tweet it to @DegDic. The author of the sentence we like best will win a $20 gift card + my books. With your permission, we will also include it in the book when it’s published. With credit of course!

Example tweet:
Everyone saw my sparkly string while waiting in the *stationary*. @DegDic Join in to win here: #giveaway

Note: When you tweet your example sentence, make sure the word in question is inside two asterisks, that the link is included, the #giveaway hash tag is included, and that the @DegDic handle is included. Otherwise we won’t see it. Don't forget to replace the sentence with your own!

Enter the contest via the rafflecopter below. The winner selected via the rafflecopter will also win a $20 gift card + my books.

You may enter both ways to double your chances.

Good luck! Please spread the word!

  1. I guess I need to tweak how I'm tweeting my definitions so they count, huh?

    1. Joshua, your definitions have been fine! These rules are just for the giveaway. :)

  2. You are going to have some great entries!

  3. I'm on my ipad right now and it's being wonky. Once I am home and have my laptop I'll play!

  4. I played the 'lazy way', since I'm not on Twitter or FB. Good luck with the contest!

  5. You bring out the degenerate in me. ;)

“Allowing an unimportant mistake to pass without comment is a wonderful social grace” ~Judith S. Marin

“I don't ever try to make a serious social comment.” ~Paul McCartney

“I'd make a comment at a meeting and nobody would even acknowledge me. Then some man would say the same thing and they'd all nod.” ~Charlotte Bunch

“Probably what my comment meant was that I don't care about the circumstances if I can tell the truth.” ~Sally Kirkland

“We're not going to pay attention to the silliness and the petty comments. And quite frankly, women have joined me in this effort, and so it's not about appearances. It's about effectiveness.” ~Katherine Harris
