Byron Presents: the Next-to-Last Bell Mountain Trivia Question

See the source image

Oh, boy! Byron the Quokka here, with the next-to-last question in our Bell Mountain trivia contest! Question No. 19! And that’s Mum and Dad whispering answers to each other so that you blighters out there can’t overhear. Or else they’re pretending to be a pair of bookends. Of course they both know the answer.

But do you? Well, here’s the question:

Who was the Temple librarian who became First Prester?

(If you don’t know what a First Prester is, you haven’t read the books and you’re just out of luck, I’m afraid.)

The winner gets an autographed book. And if you want to hold out for His Mercy Endureth Forever, I asked Lee and he says it’s okay.

 


Assorted Updates

Contrary to the forecast, it didn’t rain today. So I sat outside and tried to finish writing The Wind from Heaven. I ran out of gas around 2 o’clock: I think I’ll need one more chapter. I lost practically all of April to bad weather, so I’ve had to work extra-hard to get this far. My editor think you’re gonna need a seat belt to read this one.

The 50,000-comment contest: just 151 to go! The winner gets a Quokka T-shirt.

And… just two questions left in the Bell Mountain trivia contest. The winner gets an autographed book. Note to winner: If you want to hold out for a copy of His Mercy Endureth Forever, which will probably be published early next year, sure, you can do that. Just don’t forget to remind me that you’ve got a book coming to you.

Incidentally, we were supposed to have a major storm today–and we didn’t. Preposterously long-range climate predictions, anyone?


Byron Presents: Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 18

(Chomp, chomp…) G’day, mates! Sorry for the delay: couldn’t talk with my mouth full. Byron the Quokka here, with good manners–and Question No. 18 in our Bell Mountain Trivia Contest. Eighteen! Only three left before we have a winner.

Ready? Here it is?

Who denounced the Thunder King and declared God’s judgment on him–in the Thunder King’s own golden hall, in front of all his mardars?

We still have one reader who’s gotten every question right so far, hasn’t missed one of them. I wonder if that person lives with quokkas. We have that effect on humans.

The winner gets an autographed book and the admiration of all the other readers. You can even hold out for the next book, His Mercy Endureth Forever, if you can wait till sometime next year.

P.S.–Don’t forget the BIG comment contest! Only 344 to go, to reach 50,000! Who will win the official Quokka T-shirt? Crikey, gotta catch my breath! Excitement’s almost too much for me.


Byron Presents: Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 17

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, and we’re going down the home stretch of our Bell Mountain trivia contest. The winner gets an autographed book.

There are twenty questions, and here’s No. 17. Ready?

Who is Jack’s only living blood relative?

Like I told you up front, the questions get harder as they go along. Don’t feel bad–Lee’s wife Patty is really bombing these questions. Of course, any quokka could answer them all–answer ’em correctly, I mean. Even a platypus could answer ’em all, if you don’t count wrong answers.

And don’t forget the Milestone Comment Contest! Post Comment No. 50,000 and win an official Quokka T-shirt.

See? See? Toldja it’d be a great prize!

As for that dingo who said “All that fuss over a goofy T-shirt,” well, I guess this puts him in his place! Ha, ha, ha!

Now let’s see how fast we can run up those last thousand comments.

And don’t forget the Bell Mountain trivia contest, in which the winner gets an autographed book. That lets us quokkas out, ’cause we already have all the books.


Byron: Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 16

https://static.boredpanda.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/cute-smiling-happy-quokkas-18-58c8f4a32f3a7__605.jpg

G’day, mates! I’ve got an apple! That nice man traded it to me for that bicycle that I found just standing there on its kickstand. Guess I got the best of that deal!

But I’m here this morning to present Question No. 16 of our Bell Mountain Trivia Contest. There’s one reader who’s gotten all right answers so far, but I’m not allowed to tell you who it is. It’s not one of us quokkas: these questions are too blinkin’ easy for us.

Anyway, here it is, No. 16–

Who killed Shogg the Giant?

Meanwhile, as soon as we get 44 more comments, I’ll be able to reveal the prize for posting Comment No. 50,000. You only get an autographed book for winning the trivia contest, but for putting up the 50,000th comment–well, whoopee! Forty-four more comments, bringing us to 49,000, and I let the secret out. And watch you all scramble to win the prize!

This is totally my idea. Lee has his doubts, still. But he’ll see I’ve been right all along.


Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 15

G’day! That’s me, Byron the Quokka, jumping across the shark-infested River of Doom to bring you Question No. 15 in our Bell Mountain trivia contest. Whew–got across unscathed! And here’s your question:

In what battle was Angel, King Ryons’ hawk, honored by the Hosa warriors?

Only five questions to go, and I’m afraid I’m gunner have to make ’em hard, from here on out. How fast can you read Bell Mountain books? Meanwhile, if you’re new here and you don’t know what I’m talking about, just go to the home page and click “Books.”

Well, I got across the River of Doom all right. Now comes the tricky part: getting back.


Byron: Another Friendly Reminder

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here–and why do I look so blinkin’ happy?

Well, all right, we quokkas are happy most of the time. But today we just found out that we’re able to offer that fantastic prize we talked about, to whoever wins the big comment contest and posts Comment No. 50,000.

Ah, but what is it? Sorry, but I’m not allowed to tell you that until we have 49,000 comments. Last I looked, we have 48,541. So if you want to see what the prize is… well, get chatting. And then watch those last thousand comments go up like crazy!

Tomorrow I’ll put up Question No. 15 of the Bell Mountain trivia contest–that’s 15 out of 20. Whoever wins that one gets an autographed book. We do have someone in the lead, but I’d rather not tell you who it is. You can have fun trying to guess!

And now I’m late for my How To Write A Great Novel lesson with Ms. Violet Crepuscular, so I’ll see you tomorrow.


Byron Presents: Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 14

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here: and Lee had to take the cat to the vet for her checkup, so he left me in charge. It’s a big responsibility!

But first things first: the Bell Mountain trivia contest, Question No. 14. Remember, I warned you the questions’d get harder as we moved toward No. 20. But first, No. 14:

Where did Barseen and Uncle Shesh come from?

Oh! And that SUV parked behind me–I’m trying to get Lee to make that the prize for winning this contest.

But he won’t listen to me unless he comes home and finds I got this blog a ton of views while he was out. Oi! Tell your friends about it! Let’s make this a blog day to remember–it’ll look great on my resume.


Byron the Quokka Presents: Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 13

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with Bell Mountain trivia question No. 13–and here it is:

Who was said to be the toughest man in Obann City?

This character is so popular among us quokkas, my Aunt Sary named her firstborn son after him. That’s them in the picture.

Lee’s wife volunteered the answer, “Oh–that guy, you know who I mean!” Sorry, Pat, but that’s not good enough.

Remember, there are going to be 20 questions and whoever has the most right answers will win. We do have a leader at this point, but Lee won’t let me tell you who it is. Well, all right by me–we do want to keep the suspense pot boiling.

The winner gets an autographed copy of one of Lee’s books, plus the awe and respect of all the other readers of this blog.
