Another Silly Addendum

Bah!
Because I can never actually remember to include my notes in the posts they are supposed to go in here is another addendum post.
I swear, kids are just bad for the mind. Yes, I get to blame my kids for that, because I had a great memory before I had kids.

Note #1:
The great 100 Days of Star Wars Trivia Blogathon being hosted by Briane Pagel over at The Best of Everything is still going on. In fact, it's still going on for more than 80 more days, so you still have plenty of time to play. Remember to tell him I sent you and you get a whomping 50 points right off the bat! Not only are there some cool prizes at the end, but there are weekly drawings for other cool prizes along the way, and all you have to be doing is participating to get those! Seriously, just drop a comment on one of the trivia posts, and you could win a cool prize. Like, last week, I won a copy of Rust Webb's  A Dead God's Wrath. Which, of course, I already own, so, maybe, I'll think of a way to pass it along to one of you.

Note #2:
Speaking of the Star Wars blogathon, this week's prize is a copy of my very own The House on the Corner. If you've been wanting to read it but, for whatever reason, haven't gotten around to it, yet, this is your perfect opportunity for a chance to win your very own e-copy! So, yeah, go sign up for the blogathon, mention I sent you, and get in on a chance to win my book! How could it better than that? Well, I guess Briane would say  that it would be better if Brother's Keeper was finished, since he's kind of mad at me that it's not, now that he read The House on the Corner. He loved it and think everyone should read it. Maybe that's why he's offering it as a prize?

Note #3:
Speaking of Briane and The House on the Corner, he had some words to say about it. I've added those into the review section on the House tab up top there, so you can click the tab and go see what he said. Some of it made me blush. I didn't put this one over there, but he said it's "more compelling than Asgard."

Well, I guess that's all of the added items I have today. One day, maybe, I'll start remembering to actually add these into the posts.
Nah, probably not.

I need to remember to blog about this. I forget to check everyday to see if anyone has answered the Star Wars questions.

Rusty Webb said...

Well, other people do answer, I only seem to get the answers right if they answer happens to be 'Wookies.'

Andrew is up by something like a bijillion points right now. It's embarrassing really.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Wait, so it's not just mommy brain, it's parent brain? Huh. I'll forget that by tomorrow...

Congrats on having "House" in a giveaway, and for the great words said about it!

Andrew: You can substitute something else for Rusty's book; email me. Also, I'm gonna email you your 10 1/2 questions. Thanks for the mention of the Blogathon.

EVERYONE: Andrew has a lead in that Blogathon, true, but there are all kinds of ways to earn extra points and there are weekly prizes, and sometimes the answer really IS Wookies, plus almost all the posts contain some really interesting stuff about Star Wars and pop culture, except for those posts which whine about my various illnesses like "Jumping Frenchman of Maine Disease," but I try to minimize those.

What I'm trying to say is: "The House On The Corner" is a really, really really excellent book, and the best way to show Andrew Leon how much you like it is (A) Buy it as a gift for someone, and (B) Beat him in the Star Wars Blogathon.

Who doesn't own a copy of Rusty's awesome book????

Rusty Webb said...

@Alex - if my sales totals are any indicator, around 7 billion people are still waiting to buy their copy. They might be waiting for the price to drop to 89 cents or something.

So I get 50 points just for signing up? That's great, because that would be the only 50 points I'd ever get. I saw all of the movies, but I know absolutely nothing about Star Wars. Except that Jar Jar was a terrible idea and Hayden Christensen is wooden and a terrible actor. I don't suppose either of those will be valid questions.

Michael: Yes, you do!

Rusty: bah, I'm not up by that much.

Shannon: Well, you do know that insanity is genetic, right? You get it from your kids.

Briane: Yes, I agree. Everyone should come over and try to beat me in the blogathon. And, of course, buy a copy of House to give as a gift :)

Alex: Do you want names?

Rusty: I don't know; we don't seem able to even give books away, at the moment.

ABftS: You never know, you never know. Go sign up!
Twice!
