Contest Comment of the Week Winner!!!

And more entries!

 As promised, I have a comment of the week to announce and an award to … uh…award!

I had so many wonderful entries… The speculations have run wild as to where the Kraken slithered off to, missing the photo shoot for my print cover! But I had to go with the entry that was posted on Facebook by T.t. Miller…it came with a picture… ;-)


The Kraken used magic to shift into a tentacled plant to eat this kitty!

 T.t. You have won a bronze tentacle bit of kraken bling!

I’m anxious to see what entries I’ll get this week!

Remember…you can enter multiple times! So, let’s keep it going!

To reiterate… Between the electronic edition of The Kraken’s Mirror and the print edition of The Kraken’s Mirror…my kraken disappeared. Now, he’s a responsible beast and I choose to believe he has a reason and a place he was driven to go… (Yes, there was a reason and it wasn’t on purpose…these things happen.)

I’m making the most of a sad situation and having a CONTEST! What am I giving away? 1st prize is a Sony Pocket Reader! 2nd prize is A kick-ass kraken parasol and…a 3rd prize is a Betsy Johnson ‘kraken’ ring! When does the contest run? From May 1st to May 31st! So… Where did the Kraken go?

Here are the options: Where did the Kraken go?

1)      He’s in Scotland, wooing Nessie

2)      He’s outside the Mines of Moria at Gandalf’s request, fighting off the menace in the waters

3)      Sharing rum with the monster in the lake at Hogwarts

4)      ? Your idea?

How to enter the contest?

1)      Comment on my blog at and pick an option, or create your own.

2)      Friend my author page on Facebook, Maureen O. Betita Author and leave a comment, telling me which option you’ve picked, or where you think the Kraken went.

3)      Find me on any blog I guest at during the month of May and tell me your option. (Be sure to leave an e-mail address in the comment section.)

I’ll award the three biggies on the 31st…during the month I’ll give away smaller prizes…free books, pirate perch hats and kraken jewelry. Amuse me with clever ideas and you might win something!

And yes, this is a guest blog! So you can enter here!

Maybe the Kraken got called away to take care of his mum? That would be a valid reason to have to miss a very important photo shoot.

Happy Mother's Day, Ladies. :)

Not a bad possibility, Bo'sun! Even tentacles have a mum!

Chance, you just lost sales to half the world's cat lovers! :lol:

Someone once said "never appear in public with a child or an animal"
I think he was joking! :wink:

I haven't heard of any new sightings for Nessie and its well known that the mating ritual involves scaring humans, so I think we can discount that theory! *grin*

Happy Mother’s Day, Ladies. :)

Thanks Terri.
And likewise to you. :D

Well, can't please everyone! And maybe he only played with the kitty, didn't eat him... ;-)

So! All those Nessie sightings was just the lonely beast casting passionate glances at the passing tour boats?

Happy Mum's Day ta all the Mums!
