Almost Moon Doggerel Sweepstakes Completed

With all the hoopla over just where the dead body in Alice Sebold‘s The Almost Moon went, I completely forgot about the unauthorized Almost Moon jingle contest I wrote about earlier this month. Lady T announced the winning entry on her blog this morning, and here it is:

“Alice Sebold made her Lovely Bones,
with readers both near and far.
Now,with The Almost Moon approaching…
Life’s twists become most bizarre.”

In fairness, it really is the best of the entries shown. And the contest was announced before the reviews started coming in, or somebody surely would’ve submitted “I can’t tell where the bodies are.” It’s not the most accurate representation of the plot, but it rhymes! And that’s what counts.

(“The critics will begin to spar”? “Let’s listen to it in the car”?)
