Young Junius Essay Contest

Remember way back when you were a kid?

You know a smaller version of yourself?

Back in grade school?

No? Pretty old, huh?

Anyway, if you do, remember those essay contests you could enter where you wrote an essay on why something was your favorite or why you deserved something or about your favorite historical figure? Then you’d win something really cool like a bike or meet the President or maybe a whoopi cushion? All you had to do was write a short essay, of course as a kid it seemed like a novel? Remember?


Me neither. I’ve seen it used a plot on a bunch of TV shows though. So it must be legit. Of course.

Today is YOUNG MONDAY. Sadly that might not mean anything to you. Yet.

YOUNG MONDAY is the official release of YOUNG JUNIUS by crime writer Seth Harwood. And to celebrate Seth has asked his friends and their friends and their friends and well just about anyone who can to go out and buy a copy of YOUNG JUNIUS from Amazon starting at 12 noon EST/9 am PST and push it up the ranks.

I was lucky enough to order one of these bad boys in a limited early release from Seth and Tyrus Books and can’t wait to crack the spine on it. Since I did this, I didn’t think I could participate in YOUNG MONDAY. Seth is my boy, but my book collection is starting to look like a hoarding problem. But you know what I’m going to order a copy anyway. So to save space and to save my marriage I’m going to give away my newly ordered copy.

You’d like to win a book right?

Well all you have to do is write an essay. Just like when you were a kid. Remember? Sorry, not going to go down that road again. Promise.

YOUNG JUNIUS can be yours for a mere 300 words. Make it serious. Make it funny. Make it a crime for you not to win. Make me believe you deserve a copy of YOUNG JUNIUS.

Did you miss Cinco de Junius?

For those who missed it, yesterday was Cinco de Junius. The day where all of Seth Harwood‘s family, friends and fans could become the few and the proud to pre-order a limited edition hardbound, cloth covered, signed and numbered edition of Young Junius from crime publisher Tyrus Books. The story that takes us back to the beginning for a young Junius Ponds in 1980s Boston, the Projects. It’s a hard fast hitting story that makes no apologies. If you’ve read Seth’s freshman release Jack Wakes Up, you’re going to want this.
