Early Warning! KNOWLEDGE QUEST ENDS 10/03/09 For Curse of the Spider King Give-Away.

All participants in the Curse of the Spider King Knowledge Quest have 24 hours left to find those friendships! (see the contest post below if you're just joining the mayhem) By 10:00pm EST tomorrow night all lists of friendships found in Wayne and Christopher's books MUST be in my in box to receive credit. The e-mail address again is:


Sunday I'll be tallying scores and will post them here, so you can see where you stand with each other and then Sunday night or Monday night depending on how much time I have, I will post the next Quest which is all about COURAGE. Due to the difficulty of this second quest, I will be letting it run for two weeks, and HEART will run the last week along side COURAGE.

Besides, courage and heart seem to always run around together.

Now to other thoughts.

Several of you have said that you're ordering your copy online for Tribe credits, so you aren't going to be competing for this book. Hey, I totally understand ordering Wayne and Christopher's book and getting the credit for your tribe!

*Ahem* However a free signed copy of Wayne and Christopher's book, is a free signed copy of Christopher and Wayne's book. And Christmas/Hanukkah/New Years Eve is right around the corner.

Okay, no, no they're not. It just feels that way this week cos of all the Christmas stuff we have out at the store.


Anyway, the point is, you can enter this contest and still buy a copy later for tribe credit. Just keep one for yourself, and give the other away. I'll let you decide which one you do what with. Don't make me type that sentence again. It's not grammatically correct, and wasn't easy to type.

To recap this post you who have read it have learned that:

KNOWLEDGE QUEST runs till 10:00pm tomorrow.
Christmas things are out at His Way
Scribe is very tired and a little bit unstable.
A lot, unstable.

Look, this is why WTB and CH and BD bring long sharp metal pointy things to signings. Because they know the organizers get a little loco near the end.
