Guess the next 14 titles in the 33 1/3 series.

After two months of reading, hair-pulling, late nights, temporary blindness, tears, laughter and pure joy we are ready to announce the next 14 titles to be published in the 33 1/3 series. We will begin announcing them on this blog next week. Thank you to all of those who submitted for your hard work and patience over the last few months.

Even if you didn’t submit a proposal (and if you did), we’d like to invite you to guess which 14 we’ve carefully selected to publish.

What to do: Take a look at the short list is posted below and pick 14 titles that you THINK we will publish. The closest guess will win a sweet 33 1/3 prize pack.

Oh…and the person that’s the farthest off, the one who just fails completely will ALSO win a prize pack. That’s one winner and one loser, but the prize is the same.

What’s in the prize pack? EVERY book we’ve published this year, older series favorites, an impossible to get anywhere else 33 1/3 beanie and a 33 1/3 guitar pick.

The person who gets the closest to getting all 14 right will win the contest. (And in the event of a tie, we’ll figure something out…)

Simply send us an email with the subject “My List of 14,” and list your 14 selections in the body of the email with your full name at the top. You must pick 14 and please don’t send attachments.

Send your entry (one per person only) to:

33proposals@gmail.com

before 12pm EST on Tuesday, May 20th.

Your email *must* have the subject line “My List of 14″ – anything without that will not be accepted.

Good luck!
