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,




Graham Parke




“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!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
