G’day! I promised to give you all Question No. 4 in the Bell Mountain trivia contest and it took me all day to think of it! Running these contests isn’t as easy as it looked.

Right, well, here it is–

Who gave Cavall to King Ryons?

Mind you, you can’t get these answers if you haven’t read any of Lee’s books–not unless you’ve got a special kind of mind that I’m sure doesn’t exist.

And now back to the family nest for a game of Clue!

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, reminding you that we have a comment contest going–and there aren’t any bloomin’ comments yet today!

Only 984 comments to go, to get to No. 47,000, and the reader who posts it wins… oh, one of those autographed books he’s always giving out. Anyone can play, as many times as you like, and all comments are eligible, except [riffles through rulebook; clears throat]–

“Comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing blasphemy or profanity; commercials thinly disguised as comments; comments simply too inane to bother with.”

My cousin Lucy likes inane comments, but she’s the only one.

So let’s see how fast we can get to 47,000! And later today I’ll run up Question No. 4 in the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest.

(I hope these generate some excitement soon! This is my first job ever, and I don’t want to…

Author Interview with Lee Duigon

This is an interesting interview that my favorite author Lee Duigon had a few years ago.

Into the Mind of the Writer

May I present to you all Lee Duigon!

1. What genre are your books?

They are a certain kind of fantasy in which I try to generate wonder without recourse to magic.

2. What draws you to this genre?

I’ve always loved myths, legends, tall tales, and fantasy. I guess I just never outgrew Sinbad stories. Also, I find fantasy gives me scope to tell the kind of story I want to tell. In fantasy, within limits, anything goes.

3. What project are you working on at the moment?

The Glass Bridge, Book #7 in my Bell Mountain series, was just published late in January, and in a few months we’ll get into editing Book #8, The Temple. Come spring, I hope to be ready to start writing the next book in the series. But for the time being, I’m just recharging my novel-writing batteries.

4. What’s it…

My allergies are killing me again, and somehow I just can’t get up for covering any more nooze. So it’s time to hand over to Byron the Quokka…

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with Bell Mountain trivia question No. 3. I hope some more of you will play–nothing quite so blah as a game that nobody plays. And remember, the winner gets a bicycle–oops! I mean an autographed book.

Let me hit you with a question that’s only a little bit hard.

Question: Who was the outlaw who called himself “the king of Lintum Forest”?

I’ve never met another quokka who couldn’t answer this one, but the contest’s only open to you humans. Don’t ask me why. I guess we just like to see you folks enjoy yourselves. And we’re tryin’ to help Lee sell some books.

Byron the Quokka: Next Question!

Here’s Question No. 2 of the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest!

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with Question No. 2 of the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest. I’ve watched Lee do this several times, so I’m sure I can do it, too, while he goes outside  and tries to write another book.

Right, here goes! Question No. 2–

What is the name of Martis’ horse?

Yeah, I know that’s an easy one, but no fear–they’ll get harder as we go along. Remember, whoever gets the most right answers wins a bicycle… Oops, shouldn’t’ve said that. The prize is supposed to be a book.

In case of a tie, you both win.

Now don’t make me look like some poor sap of a kangaroo by not coming up with answers. If this doesn’t work, I won’t get any more contests to run. Here, I’ll even give you a hint!

It’s not “Man O’ War.”

G’day! It’s me, Byron the Quokka, eating a leaf. And the way readers are snoozing over our current contests, you’d think the winner was only going to get a leaf. Crikey!

We have a comment contest going, whoever posts Comment No. 47,000 wins an autographed book. Would you believe we’re still some 1,500 comments short?

Then there’s the Bell Mountain Trivia game, whoever gets the most right answers to our 20 questions will win a bicycle–whoops! I mean an autographed book. So far only one reader has volunteered an answer to the first question: Where does the best wine in Obann come from?

Ms. Crepuscular says “Connecticut” but I’m not counting her answer. I’m in charge of the contest and I won’t accept silly answers.

Well, I told Lee I could run these contests for him, so I hope I don’t wind up looking like some poor man’s wombat. Join…

Important Announcement! (from Byron the Quokka)

C’mon, everybody! Join the comment contest!!

G’day, it’s me, Byron the Quokka, with a super-important announcement!

We now have just over 45,000 comments on this blog, and Lee says I can start another comment contest as long as I don’t promise that the winner gets a bicycle.

So OK, new comment contest, with the finish line at 47,000, which means that the next contest will be for No. 50,000, a real milestone–and those dumb  wombats said we’d never make it! But first this contest. Whoever posts Comment No. 47,000 wins the prize.

I don’t know what he’s got against giving away bicycles. [Editor’s Note: Byron, it wasn’t ours to give! How many times do I have to tell you that?] So I guess an autographed copy of his new book, The Temptation–and if you’ve already got it, you can ask for a different book.

I don’t know. A bag of pretzels and a can of…
