Seven and counting

I’ve been horribly absent from this blog space this year, racking up a total of 6 posts this year, not including this one. So this is number 7, but that’s not what the title of this post implies, just a nice coincidink. No this year hasn’t been stellar, and I mean the last 12 months not just the year 2012. I’m still hopeful for the year to end up with a nice ending flourish. I try to keep those rose colored glasses at hand.

So we’re looking for the good side, a little something to keep Ol’ Ron smiling.

As you know, you do know right? About the book? No I didn’t write a book, I’m saving that for Mister Lucky 13. About the anthology I produced, published and co-edited with Kent, Sabrina and Chad. Both Barrels?

Not ringing any bells? I really need to keep you folks in the loop. Sorry.

Well back when Shotgun Honey turned a year old, I might have mentioned that we were going to be putting out a companion anthology for our website. We had open submissions, invited submissions and even commissioned an artist–because lets be honest you didn’t want me slinging text on a blank canvas.

So in the just less than 6 months since I announcing a Shotgun Honey Presents anthology, which became Shotgun Honey Presents: Both Barrels thanks to Rob Kitchin (You won!), we managed to pull it off and the print copies will be available for sale on October 2, 2012. Kindle editions, hopefully on or around that date. It’s a process.

So if you can do rudimentary math, or have access to a calendar, the 2nd is just 7 days away, and count… backwards… to release day. 7 days! Yay!

Getting down to brass tax… or is that tacks? It’s the latter for those who want to learn the proper phrase. So, the brass tacks of the issue. I want to give one person the opportunity to get a free print copy, and with hope before the release date. That pesky shipping, you know?

So what do you have to do to win your free copy? I’m going to make it easy on you, post a wacky comment below. No vulgarities and sorry contributors, this ain’t for you. You have until I wake up on Thursday, which is about 5:30 am EST.

So have at it!

    Do I still need to post a wacky comment? My birthday is the day after the release. My dog’s birthday is nine days after (I think it’s even the same day as my nieces’ birthday–I don’t know, I’ll have to check their Facebook pages. Well, one of their Facebook pages; they’re twins.), and then my wedding anniversary is at the end of the month.

    I would post a comment, but the problem is that there’s a school for the blind in my left ventricle. I’m really conflicted about the whole thing. I support rights for people with disabilities (NOT disabled people) but I enjoy blood pumping into and out of my heart, thereby keeping me alive. Unfortunately, I cannot have both. Perhaps I could live on a respirator…although I don’t think that would do the trick.

    Family members are probably not eligible also. Think Colleen could divorce you….just until I win? No? Well I tried.

  • Um…a wacky comment. I wonder, if it’s dealing with crime, wouldn’t it be a “whack”y comment?

  • I wouldn’t know where to start. This is just plain crazy to give away a work of art. Ah, heck, I’m just plain crazy too.

  • If I won it I’d pass it on to my crit partner after I was done with it – I’ve always thought he should be involved with you guys. 😉
