Truth in Advertising Contest

Morning, all. I hope you had a fabulous weekend. We sure did, though I'm playing catch up with the reading now. I got a note about a fun contest this morning and wanted to share it with you.

In celebration of the publication of the new novel Truth in Advertising by John Kenney, Touchstone Books invites you to design an advertisement for the book! Entries will be judged by a panel of advertising industry experts and the winning design will win a cash prize of $5,000. We encourage applicants of all backgrounds to participate, including (but not limited to) those with experience in graphic design, advertising, and marketing.

And here’s just a taste of what people are saying about Truth in Advertising:
       We’re sold on Kenney’s trenchant, quick-witted debut. A-” —Entertainment Weekly
       “A lively debut that has ‘movie deal’ written all over it.” —People
       It’s the stuff of Jonathan Tropper novels and Judd Apatow films and every Zooey Deschanel fantasy.” —USAToday.com
