Fauxpocalypse for Blogophilia 2.7

Sue did a write up on Fauxpocalypse for Blogophilia today. I think she did a great job of dissecting the stories and finding the themes that carry through all of them. You should go check it out!

Scientists predict life on Earth will end on  July 15, 2015.  A comet called  Grijalva named after Catherine Grijalva, the scientist  who discovered it, will destroy the planet.

But the oncoming megatons of rock and ice break up shortly before impact. Now humanity must live in a world most believed would not exist. Across the planet, people are haunted by the future they did not fear, and even those who did not embrace death must face the consequences of others’ decisions.

The world prepares. People surround themselves with their loved ones, spend all their money, essential  services such as power, water and gas cease. Looting is pervasive.         Streets become dangerous.

The comet misses hitting Earth. but  the debris from the comet still littered the sky obscuring sunlight  While the world wouldn’t end from the comet, small rocks might land and do local damage.

Contest Wrap-Up

Do you know why there are no longer any book pictures at the top of this post?

Because all the books have been won.

Yesterday’s Comment Contest winner = Not A Punk Rocker (AKA Sheena)!

At 9:50AM PST there were 190 comments on the post.  I worked my Excel magic (yes, I just like to say the word magic.  MAGIC! MAAAAAAGICK!) and it produced the random number 163.  I worked backwards from the end again and came to this lovely comment:

Sheena

Thanks again for everyone who played along in the shenanigans this week.  It was a lot of fun.  And maybe I’ll do it again soon.

But next week?  Next week will be all about the writing.  The words have been piling up again and I have to unleash them before they explode out my nose.  It has happened before and it isn’t much fun to clean up.

Trust me.

 

Comment Contest (also known as Jester Fail)

Yesterday’s Scavenger Hunt Contest winner = Evil Squirrel!

Is there any other kind?  Aren’t all squirrels evil?  This might require further research…Anyway, I wanted to give everyone who played yesterday the win.  They were all great.  Arden gave us cats.  Exile on Pain Street gave us Donald Trump as The Jester.  Polysyllabic Profundities gave us the very best silly.  The Cutter gave us Kingdom Come (one of the greatest comics ever written and drawn).  If I had five books to give away, I would have.But, I only had one to give away, and it went to ES because:

You see?  It was the choice that had to be made.

signed fauxpocalypse contestOne last book.  One last game.  One last winner.  Maybe it will be you.

This is kind of a fail, but I couldn’t come up with a game for today.  I’ve been thinking about it for a couple days now.  I even enlisted the help of The Queen and Zoe and a bunch of other bloggers, but, for the most part, I think they thought I was joking that I needed help.  (Zoe and The Queen did give me good ideas, to be fair.)

So, for today’s contest, we are going to reprise Monday’s contest.  So, if you want the final signed copy of Fauxpocalypse, leave a comment, leave 50 comments, and tomorrow morning I will use a random number generator to pick the winning comment. 

So, what’s on your mind?  Have you agreed with my winners the last four days?  Who would you have picked instead?  Why should you definitely get the last book?
