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!

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;


It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
