Saturday Trivia!

Avast all ye lovers of useless bits of movie trivia!  Wilst thou be stumped upon reading mine questions?  Continue on if ye dare!

Today’s questions, from easy to hard so everyone can play!

  1. How nuch money does Fezzik have to pay Miracle Max for a miracle in Princess Bride?
  2. Why did Steven Spielberg allow Harrison Ford to simply shoot the sword-wielding bad guy in Raiders of the Lost Ark instead of having a longer drawn out  fight?
  3. At what speed was the NTI traveling when it passed by the American sub at the beginning of the Abyss?

Good luck!  I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  In case you’re wondering, I’m close to finalizing the rules for the movie trivia contest.    Stay tuned!!

Trivia Time!

Now I realize that the answer to this question is easy enough to determine since everyone can just do a search on their e-readers, but I want to challenge the readers to see how many knows this without having to do so.  If you don’t know, that’s ok.  But do me a favor and let me know if you looked it up, ok?  And try not to look at what other people have written!  Let’s test those memory banks, people!!

Anyone who gets the answer is entered into the drawing!  The prize will be a print copy of Something Wyverian This Way Comes (Tales of Lentari #2) when it becomes available.  Unlike the Goodreads Giveaway, this contest is open to any fan regardless where you live.   This contest will end on the last day of February!

Okay, here goes…

Question:  What is Kornal’s jhorun?

If you know the answer then leave a comment here and let me know!  Only people who comment here, with the correct answer, will be entered into the drawing!  Good luck to all who play!

Short Stories finally on Kindle!

BC - Short Stories

BC – Short Stories

I wanted to make a brief announcement for all those fans who have Kindles.  I’ve finally released the two short stories on Kindle.  Disneyland Debacle and Winter Wonderland are bundled together and is as cheap as I can make it, which is $0.99.   I’m still going through it to make sure the formatting took place properly, so if you notice anything out of the ordinary be sure to let me know!  Here’s the link:  Bakkian Chronicles – Short Stories.  Of course, it’s being released through Smashwords, too, so give it a little bit of time and the major retailers should have it in their stores.

Don’t forget to sign up for your chance to win an autographed copy of Lost World (Tales of Lentari #1)!  The giveaway is going on right now on Goodreads.  The link is on the last post!  Good luck to all who enter!

Happy reading!  Seeing how I have a 2nd writing day this week, I’m off to take advantage of that!  Pryllan and the gang are calling my name!

I have one last update for everyone.  The Bakkian Chronicles short stories collection (yeah, I know – there’s only 2!) should be available on Kindle by the end of the week with a price tag of $0.99.  It’ll contain both Disneyland Debacle and Winter Wonderland.  I’ll also release it through Smashwords so that it’ll show up at all the other main retailers.

Coolest-trivia-about-your-hometown Contest!

For this next blog contest I thought I’d get to know some more of the fans and see where they live!  So here’s the thing:  based on where you live, what’s the coolest tourist attraction, or most unique thing your hometown is known for?

I’ll give you an example.  I’m in Lake Havasu City, AZ.  My town is known for being the home of the London Bridge.  Coming in at a strong second would be the spring break hotspot that draws in thousands of college kids every year.

Tell me about your town!  What are you known for?  At the end of the month I’ll have my wife pick her favorite and that person becomes the winner!

What’s at stake:  a Bakkian Chronicles cap, as modeled by Peanut on my Facebook page.    Want to enter?  Tell me about your town!

Newest Goodreads Giveaway!

The last Goodreads giveaway I did last month for Lost City had so many people vying for a copy that I thought I’d create another one.  Up for grabs is another copy of Lost City (Tales of Lentari #1), autographed by yours truly.  Would you like to enter but are not sure how to do so?  All you need to do is be a member of Goodreads.com, and if you aren’t already, no problem.  Membership is free.  It’s a place where you can meet up with authors or fellow readers and talk about the books you love, or hate I suppose.  Many authors are willing to chat about their books and answer any questions their fans might ask.

I’m already a member, and quite a few of my friends are, too.  So if you are thinking about joining up now would be the perfect opportunity to do so!  And when you’re ready, here’s the link to Lost City’s giveaway:
