In Case You Don’t Win…

The books in the Bell Mountain series are the most exciting books I have read in my life! I highly recommend them for you to read!

If by some statistical misfortune you don’t win the comment contest, there’s always this.

For less money than you’d pay for an order of steamed pork dumplings at the Pink Lotus–and they’re very nice dumplings, I hasten to add–you can get a Kindle copy of my new Bell Mountain novel, The Temptation. And if you’re really feeling like a sport, you can get it in paperback.

What would happen if all thousand of this blog’s subscribers bought the book, all at once?

Well, I would run outside and do a cartwheel, at risk of splitting my pants, my publishers would jump for joy, and leftids would feel downhearted. And a thousand people would have a nice book to read.

So much for the commercial.

Comment Contest: Less than 500 to Go

Hopefully this will bring more comments to the contest!

Byron the Quokka is concerned that the comments aren’t coming in as fast as he anticipated. So he has decided to up the ante.

Now the prize will be that wonderful bicycle you see in the picture behind him. I don’t know how a quokka goes about obtaining a bicycle. I don’t see how Byron’s feet can reach the pedals.

But whoever posts Comment No. 44,000 will win either an autographed copy of my new book, The Temptation, or that really nifty bike that somehow fell into Byron the Quokka’s opportunistic little paws. “The wheels actually turn!” he claims. We currently have 43,539 comments, so that leaves a mere 461 to go.

So come on, out there–think of something witty, pithy, or unforgettable to say and post it as a comment!

Just hurry up and do it before whoever that bike really belongs to shows up and takes it…

Music for the ‘Bell Mountain’ Movie

I just love the Bell Mountain Series by Lee Duigon! Book 4 of this Christian fantasy series is my favorite. I highly recommend these books for young people, as well as adults!! I guarantee that once you start reading, you’ll have a hard time putting it down! Go to Lee Duigon’s blog, click on “Books,” and find out more about the Bell Mountain Series!!

This is not part of the movie contest–which is still on, by the way–it’s just my non-negotiable demand that Bernard Herrmann compose and conduct the music score. The above is his introductory music for Jason and the Argonauts (1963), one of my all-time absolute favorite movies. It’s got everything a good movie should have–a homicidal bronze giant, flying harpies, a skeleton hit squad–and whatever was happening on screen, Bernard Herrmann had the perfect music for it.

As for the cast-the-movie contest, we have entries so far from (he pauses to count on his fingers) half a dozen readers. Shoot, I was hoping to at least run out of fingers.

I know, I know: you can’t cast the movie if you haven’t read any of the books. I also know I need more readers. Like, lots more.

Let’s keep the contest running a little longer, in hopes of getting more entries…

Bell Mountain Movie Contest on Life Support

Those out there who have read the Bell Mountain series by Lee Duigon, come over to Mr. Duigon’s blog for some fun!!!

Last call for this contest! Just name four actors to play four characters in the Bell Mountain movie–which will be made as soon as somebody scrapes up $200 million for it–and win an autographed certificate by the author of these immortal literary works (that would be me) praising your wisdom, perspicacity, and good taste.

I’ll do just about anything to gin up readership. And this blog has been sucking wind since Daylight Saving went into effect.

The first few days of the movie contest were wild and enjoyable; but the fact is, only half a dozen of you ever entered it. What kind of contest is that? I wanted to keep it going until The Temptation (No. 11 in the series) was published. I thought that was going to happen any day now… but my intuition hasn’t been sinking many foul shots lately, has it?

“But Lee–maybe that movie contest…

‘Bell Mountain Movie’ Contest–Hello? Hello?

Come on, everyone! Read the Bell Mountain series and hop aboard the ‘Bell Mountain Movie’ Contest!!

After a great February, this old blog has been in the doldrums so far this month. And the Bell Mountain Movie contest is even deeper in the doldrums. It’s still ongoing, but you’d never think so. A few readers have played it with great gusto, but they haven’t had much company.

To play, all you have to do is nominate actors to play four characters in a Bell Mountain Movie that will be made as soon as we can scrape up $200 million. Any four characters, any four actors. The winner gets an autographed certificate that’ll look fantastic on your resume when you apply for a job. There can even be more than one winner. And if you want to cast actors who aren’t with us anymore, that’s fine–it’s what I always do.

Of course, in order to play, it helps if you’ve read one or more of the books…

The Bell Mountain Movie Contest, So Far

Read the “Bell Mountain Series” by Lee Duigon, and join the fun “Cast the Bell Mountain Movie” contest!!

So far our second effort at a Bell Mountain Movie contest is coming along a little better than the first, and better than the purely hypothetical “Name that Tent Caterpillar” contest.

Which is to say we’ve had only five or six readers play so far. That’s better than two or three, but still not up to the level of enthusiasm reached in Renal, South Dakota’s, annual “Cutest Click Beetle” contest. And I wonder how well I’d do here with a “The Crawling Eye Is My Favorite Monster Because _________” contest.

Now a couple of you have played our movie game with gusto: anyone who’s been reading the comments will know who you are. And a couple of you have played once. The remaining 1,000-plus subscribers have not played at all.

Let me, therefore, reconfigure some of the rules. (1) Instead of choosing the best cast overall, I will choose the…

Yes–this is indeed your last chance to buy my books in the year 2018! If you wait till tomorrow, it’ll be 2019.

So get onto amazon.com and order a couple of ’em, or click “Books” and then the little shopping cart icon and order direct from the publisher. It’s easy! Even I could do it, and I stink at computers.

The saga begins with Bell Mountain and now consists of ten books, with No. 11, The Temptation, just about ready to come off the press. Thrill to wars, miracles, treachery, conversions, really strange and menacing beasts, weird barbaric customs, love, friendship, faithfulness, barbarian invasions, an avalanche–everything that makes life worth living! It’s all in here.

Buy ’em for your kids, and by the time they reach No. 10, The Silver Trumpet, they’ll be old enough to read ’em all over again.

And I have heard, but cannot confirm…
