The Erratic Sun – Contest the Second

Starting with a bit of housekeeping, the winner of the first contest is…

faithhopechocolate!!!

Congratulations.  I’ll be in touch… eventually.  Probably after all of the contests are done so I only have to go to the post office once.  Running errands is hard in the toddlerocracy.

For those of you interested in how she was selected, I used the Excel Randbetween function after I placed all 25 participants in order by the date/time they made their comment here on WordPress or over on Facebook.

And now, onto the second contest to win a signed copy of The Erratic Sun, written by myself and the amazing Revis, and with cover art by the wonderful Daydreams:

The Erratic Sun - Cover

Here is a snippet from page 42 (because 42):

“‘It’s been a helluva run, and I’m not ready for it to end.  We are going to get through this.’  With that, the Captain left the cockpit to head back down to the engine room and see what miracle Gillian had come up with.”

All you have to do to win a signed copy of this amazing book is guess how many total words are on page 42.  Leave your guesses in the comments and the participant who comes the closest wins.  It’s just that easy.  Good luck!

…..

Can’t handle the pressure?  You can always just buy a paperback copy here or a digital copy here.

The Erratic Sun – Contest the first

The Erratic Sun - Cover
It’s just so beautiful: #TheErraticSun

So, I happen to have (not yet, really, but I will because I’ve already ordered them) a bunch of extra copies of The Erratic Sun…  They are just waiting to be signed and mailed to the winners of the various contests I’m going to host in the coming days.

I’m going to start simple.  If you want a signed copy, leave a comment (hopefully promising to also leave a review once you’ve finished reading) and before I post the next contest I will use a random number generator to pick the winning comment.  w

That’s simple enough, right?  Leave a comment and you could be the winner.

And, if I haven’t already made it abundantly clear, the winner gets:  a signed copy of The Erratic Sun, written by Revis and myself, and with cover art by the talented J.

Who wouldn’t want that?  Heck, I helped write the book and I want a signed copy of it!!

So, what are you waiting for?  Leave a comment already!

Orange Buffalo Blood

“An orange buffalo is a thing we are told exists, but doesn’t.”
But what if we believe in that thing so fiercely, it becomes real to us? And then what if it stolen from us? What if it bleeds? What if it dies?
Head over to Stories today and read Rara’s adaptation of the recurring lines and themes from her husband’s novel.

Stories that Must Not Die

This is post 3 of 6 of a series of poems and prose that Rara sent to be shared with the Stories community.  Next week we take a break from this series and will feature two posts that were submitted to be shared, and then we will resume this series the following week. 

This post from Rara hit me harder than most.  She has taken something her husband wrote in his novel, Orange Buffalo, and adapted it to her current situation.  If you haven’t read his book, you should.  You can also find some artwork and other items he put together based on the book on RedBubble.  And, please donate what you can to the Rara Relief fund.  Every little bit will help her get back on her feet.

What a good girl – – a strong girl – –
She’s gonna grow up to be a felon, a…
