All Play and Some Work!

Thanks so much for inviting me to DIK. I had a nice opening day yesterday. But now that all the getting to know you nonsense is out of the way, let’s get down and dirty!



Hmm...He's not very dirty...in fact he's freshly showered! *purr*















Well darn, he looks clean too. But very apropos for the DIK ladies













I’m just throwing this one in because I am simply crazy about those eyes!!

















Well now that this part of my job is done, let’s get to the almost funner part. I am going to hold one of my infamous contests. Now, if anyone here truly knows me they know two things for absolute sure. 1. I never give anything about my books away. 2. I hold the toughest contests on the planet. But I also make them well worth it J. Our prize for this contest is an ARC of the much-awaited NOAH! And I am going to throw in a deck of NIGHTWALKERS playing cards to boot. Those are very cool cards.

So here is what you have to do. First, you have to comment in reply to this blog and tell me what your top five Desert Island Keepers are! I want to know. And no sucking up is required. I only want to see my stuff in there if you really really mean it.

Now for the hard part. You have to choose your favorite quote from my entire series and post it with your DIK. Name the character who says it or thinks it...I’d love to see what you all come back with. I will randomly choose one of the DIK/quotes as a winner in tomorrow’s blog!

Now get to work!

While you're at it, check out my website and blog and sign up for the blog mailing list if you like. :)

Hey Jacki!

Good to see you again! You DO have very tough contests...but I'm liking this one a lot...especially if I win NOAH!! Woohoo. Ok - gotta go find a quote - be back later. :)

Crap, crap, crap I have to find it out before volleyball tonight OH THE PRESSURE. I REALLY REALLY WANT NOAH... Dang it.
Hold the phone I shall return tonight.

Clever tactic Jacki, I shall have to remember that...

I had Jacob sitting close at hand, (on the TBR shelf) but as yet unread. I pulled it down to read the first chapter, to find a quote to qualify for the contest.. now I'm HOOKED. Not that I wouldn't have read the book, but he's jumped to the front of the line. :P I had to put it on the living room book shelf to keep from starting my weekend early. Clever indeed.

So my fav quote thus far (I had to stop reading and go back to the day job for now!) is from Bella. She's thinking to herself, mid battle in the wearhouse while the scary critter is drooling over her:

Oh great, Bella, antagonize the big bad creature, why don't you?

My DIK list is as follows:

* Edge of (Danger, Fear & Darkness) - Cherry Adair - I could not pick just one.
* On Writing - Stephen King
* Wizard of Seattle - Kay Hooper
* The Given - Sharon McClellan
* Excalibur - Saundra Anne Laubenthal
* The Complete Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales, Deluxe Edition

Thank you,
Dragon

My DIK are
The Stand by Stephen King
Any of Johanna Lindsey Mallory books
Warrior Woman by Johanna Lindsey
Stardoc series by SL Viehl
Jaid Black The Empress new Clothes with hope she might finish this series.

I have a couple of quotes that I like and both of them are snarky and by females
The first is Gentlemen, please. Shall Bella and I leave the room so you can measure each other on the tabletop. This is by Legna in Jaoob
And the other is Bella Hey i broke Arnold Schwarzenegger's nose over there, don't forget. I am not afraid of any of you.
okay now I am off crossing fingers and toes. And hoping since today is my birthday and its all 8's that it will be a lucky day for me.

Winterbourne by Susan Carroll
Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night by Kresley Cole

And the quote...I only have Gideon on hand since the others have are in the hands of friends. This is more than a quote though between Legna and Gideon!
"Oops, one sec." She winked at him and snapped her fingers, the bottle of lotion suddenly in her hand
"Show-ff. You know, you are going to have to tell me how you do that."
"Well, first you pum this little thing on top, then the lotion--"

Rena said...
