Blimey! What do I have to do, to get 13 more comments? G’day! Byron the Quokka here, trying to whip up enthusiasm for what’s left of our comment contest! You’d think hitting 70,000 comments would be a source of wild excitement, a fabulous festive occasion–but no, here I am, trying and trying. If you win,…Only 13 Comments Left to Go! — Lee Duigon
Our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest got off to a great start, but has since let all the air out and is just lying there. Ninety percent of the entries were made by 5 percent of the readers; and the leading carol emerged on the first day of the contest and is still in front…Carol Contest: Only 4 Days Left to Go — Lee Duigon
There’s a Christmas Carol Contest held at my friend Lee Duigon’s blog! Anyone can join the fun by requesting one of your favorite Christmas hymns (Click here to see the restrictions)! To request your song, you have to write a comment on one of his posts. You can request carols multiple times! To be the winner, your carol has to get the most hits among the other entries on the day it was requested. The winner gets an autographed copy of one of Lee Duigon’s books!! So hop on board!! 😆
Note: The contest is due to last until New Year’s Eve (December 31st).
Just look at that beautiful cover of Lee Duigon’s upcoming new book!! It’s fantastic!! And don’t forget to join the fun annual Christmas Carol Contest, held at Lee Duigon’s blog! The prize is an autographed copy of Lee’s new book, “His Mercy Endureth Forever”!!
Here is the full cover:
G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest seems to be slowing down. So here’s my idea to pep it up!
The prize will be an autographed copy of Bell Mountain No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever. And if you want to find out if Ellayne and Dulayl get eaten by the giant hyena, you’re gonna need this book! It hasn’t been published yet, but it’s all ready to go and it should be coming out early next year.
The winner will be whoever requests the Christmas carol that gets the most views on the day it’s posted. So far the leader has 22 views. Do I hear 25? Thirty? And one thing we don’t have to worry about is running out of Christmas carols!
Here on Rottnest Island, we have no hyenas of any kind, not even little ones. All the quokkas agree that’s a…

There is an exciting comment contest held at Lee Duigon’s blog!! Please join in the fun!!! The winner gets an autographed book by award-winning author Lee Duigon himself!!
G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and if I ever knew it’d be so much trouble, running a comment contest, I never would’ve volunteered to do it.
Right–we’re shooting for 47,000 comments, we’ve got 46,335, so that leaves 665 comments left to go. I thought we’d be done by now. I blame Lee. He should’ve listened to me and offered a bicycle as a prize. But no, he has to stick to his autographed books.
And then there’s the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest, I have to come up with Question No. 6. Tomorrow, maybe. My mum says running two contests at the same time is fair dinkum loopy and I never should’ve let him do it–but that’s all “How d’you get to Sydney Opera House? Practice, mate–practice!”
Here is Question No. 4 of the Bell Mountain Trivia contest!!
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!
Only about 900 more comments to go! Hop aboard!
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…

The contests are running on Lee Duigon’s blog!! Let’s see who will be the winner!
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…

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…

Yes, we have a comment contest winner! Byron the Quokka kept tugging on my pants-leg to tell me: “And the winner, posting Comment No. 44,000, is Phoebe!” (That’s his cousin, Eliza Williams, in the background. She is the only quokka with a surname.)
Phoebe, you have won an autographed copy of The Temptation (Bell Mountain No. 11), so please email me your mailing address so I can send it out. Byron wants to hand-deliver it, but I had to tell him no, that’s not on–first I’d have to fly him to New Jersey from Australia. We will just have to rely on the U.S. Postal Service.
Shoot! The contest is over. I was enjoying it. Well, we’ll just have to start a new one. Does 47,000 comments sound unreasonable? That’ll give me time to think of a really gaudy prize for No. 50,000.
To all of you who’ve played…
