LOL :-D Uh-huh. Christopher didn't write IOF. But when a fan handed it to him DA DA DUM. He bunnified Wayne's book. Bunny/Hopper? Oh he is clever one is Christopher!

Millardthemk said...

Hehe!! Lol "I did not know that one" I hadn't heard of book taking as bunnying rofl. NICE!

Millardthemk said...

One question scribe: When do we find out who won the other contest?

FYI I called his way, but there was no one by the email name :P But some one had the first name that u use. Lol I ask for u hoping to catch u before the signing but alas I could not. And there was no M.A *hehe*.

The other contest is right now with the judges (ie my parents) and I'll hopefully have the winner posted on Monday. The signing took way more time and energy than I thought it would originally.

Because I wanted to be there and not be pinned to the front register (I was taking pictures) I was 'off the clock' when I was in EC. I worked from 9-2 in Eldersburg, went and got my buddy/packmule Christian, loaded up the books and other props from home, and got to the store in EC around 4:45. From 5-6 Christian and I set up, and then *BOOM* the event started and it was non-stop.

I wound up working a 14 hour day so things unfortunately are a little delayed.

Storyteller said...

Nice thing to do to your co-author. *laughs*

Scribe, shame shame for telling on him! *laughs again*

The "hoppers" were hilarious :D

CH is just hilarious in all aspects lol

everlastingscribe said...

Ohhhhhoooo Wayne knew, he knew because when he went to SIGN the book, there was Christopher's happy smiling bunnyface. Don't worry :-D Wayne has his own *ahem* device that he uses when someone gives him Christopher's book to sign.

If at all possible, come out and support these two at their signings in NY. If you are further out and just can't make it to NY, then definitely watch, wait, and work to get them in your area.

Nathan R. Petrie said...

Sadly, or happily...depends on POV, my family will be on vacation during their NY trips <_<

They need to do one in Scranton lol

Millardthemk said...

Bumz, I was hoping you'd have the winner posted by now :(. Alas I am sure you are rightously busy;).

everlastingscribe said...

Well, look at it this way Millard, it means all of the entries have equal merit and that they are touched by how much heart everyone has.

:-D I'm waitin too ya know.

As it should be I suppose.
