All Right, We’ll Have Another Comment Contest

Meet quokkas - the happiest animals on Earth

G’day, faithful readers! Byron the Quokka here–and Phoebe has convinced me to start another comment contest, and Lee wasn’t sure about it, so I said, “Leave it up to me! It shouldn’t be too hard to get this blog humming again.”

As of just now, we have 61,981 comments. We shall set the next target at 64,000, in memory of the famous $64,000 question. And the prize will be–

Sixty-four thousand dollars! [Blood-curdling scream offstage.] Poor chap, he just can’t take a joke. He won’t even offer a bicycle for a prize. So of course it’ll be an autographed copy of his new book, His Mercy Endureth Forever.

Now, how long will it take us to rack up some 2,000 more comments? Search me! But as long as we have fun doing it, who cares?

We have half a year left to achieve the blog’s first-ever 12,000-view month, which we’ve only just missed twice already.

I wonder if we could offer a scholarship to Quokka University. That’ll pack ’em in. But I’ll have to wait till he calms down a bit before I mention that.


Prizes to Come (We Promise!)

Meet the Quokka

G’day! Byron the Quokka here. I hate to get on Lee’s back, but I had to remind him that he’s got to send out the prizes won by Watchman and Ina in the last two comment contests. Those would be autographed copies of his latest book, His Mercy Endureth Forever–which took longer than expected to be published, and then it took him ages to lay his hands on a couple of mailers.

I mean, heck, I’d do it for him, but who ever expects to see a quokka in the post office? So he says he’ll do it as soon as he can, probably next week. I won’t let him forget! I’d really like to see this done before it’s time for the next comment contest.


Some Progress on My New Book

In spite of multitudinous distractions, I’ve finished writing the first three chapters of my new book, Behold! I don’t know where I’m going, but that’s nothing new. I may need a better title by and by, but none has yet presented itself to me.

Meanwhile, Jack and Ellayne have seen glyptodons (see illustration) on their way to Durmurot, Ebed is aboard a ship from the Lost Continent, the new government of Obann City is trying to clean up the mess left by Lord Chutt’s usurpation, Ysbott the Snake is on his way to further mischief, and the old rat who lives under the baroness’ kitchen is having premonitions of bad times to come.

This will be Bell Mountain No. 14–who would’ve thought it?–and we’re no editing No. 13, The Wind from Heaven. No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever, is available from the Chalcedon Foundation (www.chalcedon.edu/store/ ) and, in Kindle format, from amazon.com.

It makes a welcome break from nooze. Which is a good reason for you to buy it.


My Newswithviews Column, June 4 (‘My New Book is Out’)

So now it’s out in all its glory, my newest book, His Mercy Endureth Forever.

My New Book is Out

Has there ever been a time when we were more in need of God’s mercy? Would our fallen world live through another day without it?

This is Book No. 12 in my Bell Mountain series. No. 13, The Wind from Heaven, is being edited and will, I hope, be published next year.

Would you rather read a cracking good fantasy/adventure novel, or watch the nooze?

Guranteed 100% free of current politics!


Have I Just Been Given a Sign?

I was sitting outside this afternoon, writing my Newswithviews column for the week–a column about my new book, His Mercy Endureth Forever, and my Bell Mountain series in general.

I was just finishing the work when I chanced to look up: and what did I see?

A beautiful, graceful, full-grown deer trotting across the yard, only 30 or 40 feet away from my chair. She vanished around the corner of the house next door, and when I walked over to see where she was headed, I saw no sign of her. I don’t know where she went.

I took it as a sign that God was nigh, and He wanted me to know that: for which I give Him thanks.

 


Kindle-Ready: ‘His Mercy Endureth Forever’

His Mercy Endureth Forever (Bell Mountain Book 12) by [Lee Duigon]

My new Bell Mountain book, His Mercy Endureth Forever, is now available from amazon.com in Kindle format (https://www.amazon.com/Mercy-Endureth-Forever-Bell-Mountain-ebook/dp/B088SKJP68/ref=sr_1_1?crid=13ZUVJRLUXC5Q&dchild=1&keywords=lee+duigon+his+mercy+endureth+forever&qid=1590841881&sprefix=70+per+cent+%2Caps%2C297&sr=8-1). Yeesh, look at the size of that link…

It’s on the same page as a “hot fantasy romance.” I am sure I’m better off not knowing any more about that.

The Kindle price is $4.99–the price of a box of chocolate brownies at the Stop & Shop.

Let’s see if I can sell any.


Wahoo! Here Comes the Book

His Mercy Endureth Forever

Huzzah! (Can’t say “wahoo” twice.) I’ve just received my author’s copies of Bell Mountain No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever. Now I can mail Watchman and Ina their comment contest prizes.

Dig that cover by Kirk DouPonce! Is that cool, or what? That’s Ellayne being attacked by the giant Ice Age hyena–and if you want to know what happens, you’ve got to read the book. The prehistoric hyena was an awesome predator that mostly ate rhinos. The horse is Dulayl, who’s been with us since Book 1.

I haven’t yet gotten the sign to start writing Book No. 14, and meanwhile No. 13, The Wind from Heaven, has to be edited; and we have to dream up a cover for it. Busy, busy, busy! But it’s the kind of busy I like.

Soon (I hope) His Mercy will be available via amazon.com and other outlets; but for the time being, you can order it from The Chalcedon Foundation/Storehouse Books at http://www.chalcedon.edu/store/ . Support award-winning Christian fantasy! Support me. End of commercial.

And now I’ve got to go see what Joe Collidge has gotten up to.


Hot Off the Press! ‘His Mercy Endureth Forever’

Well, it took long enough to get printed, but it’s finally ready to go–the 12th book of my Bell Mountain series, His Mercy Endureth Forever.

It’s not on amazon or Barnes & Noble yet, but you can order it directly from the publisher at https://chalcedon.edu/store/ . I admit the paperback costs $18. But heck, how much does a movie cost, that turns out to be a real turkey? And as long as we’re all under The Great Quarantine, what better time to catch up on your reading?

Please, don’t be like the guy who said, when I told him one of my books had just been published, “So when’s it gonna be a TV movie?” Cheap, cheap, cheap! And it probably won’t ever be turned into a video game, either. Although that could be kind of cool… Certainly way cooler than a TV movie.

(Stop it, Lee! You’re starting to sound like Byron the Quokka.)

Come on, now–how many books have you seen with an Ice Age hyena on the cover, attacking a girl on horseback? Yeah, that incident is in the book–along with plenty more excitement where that came from. (Now I sound like I’m trying to sell a book.)

And if you really, really like this book… Well, there are a dozen more in the series!


Finally! We Have a Winner

This rose is for Ina, who has posted Comment No. 60,000 and thereby won the comment contest. Congratulations!

As soon as we get our copies of His Mercy Endureth Forever, we’ll mail an autographed copy of it to Ina, all the way out there in Scotland. We have heard that there are no quokkas in Scotland. I saw Rob Roy on TV once, and there were no quokkas in it. I could hardly believe my eyes.

On behalf of Lee and Patty, I, Byron the Quokka, hereby award Ina her award.

And that takes care of comment contests for a while. Next stop, 65,000.


73 Comments to Go!

803 Best QUOKKAS images | Quokka, Happy animals, Cute animals

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with just 73 comments to go toward that 60,000-comment milestone–and a winner in our current comment contest.

I thought it might be nice to make a boat the prize, but Lee is still thinking in terms of an autographed copy of Bell Mountain No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever.

His Mercy Endureth Forever

It’s taking a long time to get this book printed, I guess because everything’s been slowed down by The Great Quarantine Etc. We still owe a copy to “Watchman,” who won the last comment contest. If Mercy still hasn’t been printed by the time we reach 60,000, you can ask for an earlier book in the series. We’re out of Bell Mountain though, so don’t ask for the first book. To see them all, go to the home page and click “Books.” I don’t know how anybody can resist that giant hyena, though. We don’t have those on Rottnest Island–which is probably a good thing.

Well, one more blog post this afternoon, and then we’ll do some editing of No.13, The Wind from Heaven.
