Winners of the Unspent Time Launch Event


"I'm very polite by nature, even the voices in my head let each other finish
 their sentences." Graham Parke, Unspent Time
I'd originally planned to have a monkey draw two random numbers out of a hat
 (then use the inverse hexadecimal value - because you cannot trust monkeys, 
not at the prices I'm willing to pay) but apparently there are laws against 
monkey labor. There are permits involved. It's a whole thing. So instead I 
asked a friend to think of two random numbers while dressed in a monkey suit, 
without telling him what the numbers were for. This seemed sufficiently random
 to me, although it later occurred to me how worrying it was that my friend 
would actually do this without ever asking why. There might be a thinly veiled 
cry for help in there somewhere...




 




Kindle Fire Winner: Cecilia Huddleston Kindle Touch Winner: Kathy Habel
A big thank you to all the bloggers and readers who supported the Unspent Time 
launch event (especially those who bought multiple versions of the weird little 
novels that wrecked a thousand reasonably useful minds.)




Anyway, here's the results, thank you all for joining in, winners will be 
contacted and forced to accept prizes, let me know if you ever come across 
bits in the novels you like, stay healthy and sane,

“We played for about half an hour before I realized we were actually playing 
two different games. What I’d thought of as ludo was actually a game called gin 
rummy, and what Warren was playing seemed to be a mixture of craps and table 
tennis. Once we started playing by one consistent set of rules, though, the fun 
was really over.”  Graham Parke, No Hope for Gomez!

Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Giveaway: A Touch Of Scandal

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never
hoped to feel again. But when she turns out to be the sister of the man
he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
her heart? Or the heady temptation of his stolen-and sizzling-kisses?
Scandal has followed the duke since the war. Now the greatest shock of
all is on its way-the one that can separate Garrett and Kate forever.
