And We Have a Winner!

Rejoice, “Unknowable,” for you have won the comment contest! By posting Comment No. 25,000 on this blog, you have won an autographed copy of The Silver Trumpet.

What? What’s that? The confounded thing’s still at the printer’s? Well, that’s embarrassing!

Okay, look, tell you what I’ll do. You can either wait for The Silver Trumpet, which should’ve been ready by now, or you can choose one of the earlier books in the series. Can’t say fairer than that, can I? Let me know via email.


Why Is This Lizard Smiling?

The gecko is grinning because he’s heard there are less than 200 comments to go in the race to post Comment No. 25,000 on this blog and win an autographed copy of The Silver Trumpet, Book No. 10 in my Bell Mountain series. Which is still at the printer’s, it seems.

Anyone can win, so what’re you waiting for? Make a comment! All comments are eligible, except for those which abuse anyone else on this blog, contain blasphemy or profanity, are really just thinly-disguised ads and an insult to everyone’s intelligence, or remarks just too inane to bother with.

Sorry, but I have not been able to guarantee that any countries will be re-named after the winner of this contest.


Comment Contest: Less than 300 to Go

The comments keep coming, and we are approaching the fantastically exciting climax of our latest comment contest. Whoever posts Comment No. 25,000 wins an autographed copy of The Silver Trumpet, if we can ever get it printed–and there are fewer than 300 comments to go.

Everyone can play, and just about any comment is eligible, except for: comments abusive to another reader, blasphemy, profanity, ads disguised as comments, or remarks simply too inane to bother with.

I don’t know how long it will take to reach No. 25,000, but at the rate we’re going, it won’t be long at all.

The winner will probably become rich and famous, although I can’t quite guarantee that.


Time for Another Comment Contest

See the source image

I don’t know what else to do today, and we currently stand at 24,068 comments on this blog, so, what the heck, time for another comment contest.

This time the prize will be a signed copy of The Silver Trumpet, Book. No. 10 in my–ahem!–award-winning Bell Mountain series, for the reader who posts the 25,000th comment here. I consider 25,000 a milestone, and I’m throwing the contest open to everybody. Even if you’ve already won. And if The Silver Trumpet is the first Bell Mountain book you get, it may move you to acquire the earlier books in the series.

Actually the book ought to have been published by now, but it’s been delayed by several last-minute glitches. Still, it’s coming soon. I don’t know how soon, but soon.

Anyone can win with any kind of comment, except for the following: comments containing blasphemy or profanity, comments abusive of anyone else on this site, thinly disguised commercials masquerading as comments, or remarks simply too inane to be of any use to anybody. Other than that, anything goes.

How long will it take to ring up another thousand comments?

Well, we’ll find out. Soon.


A Reminder to Our Contest Winner

There they stand, on the slopes of Easter Island, strange, enigmatic–3 million years old, according to Godzilla vs. Megalon–these nameless, timeless portraits in stone. Whose portraits are they? Why here, on the most remote and isolated island in the whole Pacific Ocean?

Ah, well, never mind. What I really want to know is White Rabbit’s mailing address so I can send him the book he won in the comment contest. Oh, and he should also tell me which book he wants. Dave, are you copying this? Send me that information at leeduigon.verizon.net .

 

 


And We Have a Winner!

Comment No. 20,000–hit it right on the nose, in fact–has been posted by “thewhiterabbit,” who thereby wins this latest comment contest.

I’m sorry that that last big prize fell through, and we will not have an undiscovered land mass named for him. They couldn’t discover one in time. So “thewhiterabbit” wins an autographed copy of one of my books.

So… let me know which book you want, and then email me your mailing address at leeduigon@verizon.net.

There will be more comment contests down the road, so if you want to win one someday, stay with me. And keep those comments coming!


Comment Contest: Last Call

There are just 50 comments to go for 20,000, which means we ought to have a winner very soon.

Some of the gaudier prizes aren’t going to make it, I’m afraid. Having a newly-discovered land mass named for you, though, that’s still in the running, provided one can be discovered sometime in the next few days. Otherwise the winner will receive an autographed copy of one of my Bell Mountain books.

Anyone can play, and all comments are eligible except for the following: comments abusive of anyone else on this site, blasphemy, remarks featuring the f-bomb and other profanity, thinly disguised commercials, and comments inane enough to count as white noise. Other than that, anything goes.

So that’s that, until we can announce the winner.


Comment Contest: Less than 200 to Go

I’m giving you fair warning: the comments are moving along briskly toward No. 20,000, and whoever posts that milestone comment will win a prize.

I’m afraid some of the really snazzy prizes I was looking at have fallen through, although the lease on the Hoover Dam is still in the running. Otherwise, the winner will receive an autographed copy of one of my books.

Quite a few of you have already won one of these contests, and it’s open to all. Just about any kind of comment is eligible, except for those abusive of anyone else on this site, any containing profanity or blasphemy, thinly disguised ads for goods and services that somehow get past the spam filter, or remarks simply too inane to bother with. Other than that, you’re good to go.


Comment Contest Reminder

Don’t anybody say I’m giving you short notice: there are only about 300 comments to go to reach lucky 20,000, and whoever posts that comment wins a prize.

A pyramid with your name on it–in neon hieroglyphics! A weekend on Solitude Island in the Siberian Arctic, with the celebrity of your choice! Rhinestone socks signed by Joe Collidge!

Or, if my plans for those prizes fall through, an autographed copy of one of my books.

Anyone can play, and all comments are eligible except: comments abusive to me or to another reader; blasphemy; any use of the f-bomb; ads thinly disguised as comments (it’s insulting); or comments simply to vapid to bother with.

Other than that, anything goes.


Remember the Comment Contest!

It doesn’t have quite the ring of “Remember the Maine,” but it will have to do: there are less than 500 comments to go to No. 20,000, and whoever posts that comment will become President for Life of some undisclosed country. Either that, or you win an autographed copy of one of my books.

There are a lot of new visitors here since the last contest, so let’s hear from you.
