My Update~

Getting any reading done ? I’ve completed Frozen in Time, an indie book by Marie Symeou, which is slightly about vampires and more about the wars between Gods and reincarnation. I’m almost 80% through and will complete by tomorrow, a super good horror book that I am pre-reading for an author. I wish so much I could tell you all about this book, because I love it. Hopefully, some time soon so I am not trying to tease you. It’s great supernatural, suspense horror that really keeps you moving through the pages.

Challenge Housekeeping~

Beyond that, I know you all (as usual with read-a-thons) are having a hard time completing and organizing getting challenges done as well as reading and everyday life. I’ve worked hard to try to give you some easy answer challenges and starting with 2 and continuing on, decided to give you the week the complete so you can flex your time. But it’s fun and I hope you all are having fun too! And I’m so very thankful for all the wonderful author friends I have that gave us so many books to giveaway. So join in the fun!

  3. Awesome contest!! I would prefer the autographed copy of the book if I win, so here is what I would bring (I’m assuming this would be if money was no object):

    1. A CamelBak backpack full of holy water (can be used as drinking water in a pinch)
    2. A Bible with embedded cross on the cover (can be removed if needed)
    3. A Survival knife (with compass on the hilt and a compartment for matches…remember those from back in the 80s?)
    4. A high-powered rifle with flashlight attached to the barrel and Night-visoin scope
    5. Night-vision Goggles (great idea, Daphne!)
    6. Collapsable bow and arrow (good idea!)
    7. TOILET PAPER!!
    8. GoPro HD helmet camera (and a helmet to mount it on…this will give everyone a record of how I die!)
    9. Extra socks
    10. A locator beacon (so they can find my body, if/when things go wrong!)

    Thanks again!!

    I’ve survived the wilderness many times, fending off demons, zombies, and other mythical creatures that lurk in such remote places. So take it from me, you’d be good to take these items.

    1. A large bowie knife blessed by a shaman
    2. A book on how to set traps and trip wires
    3. Subartic sleeping bag
    4. Fire-making tools (matches, lighter, blow torch)
    5. Pot for cooking and boiling water
    6. A first-aid kit (yes, you’ll need to dress some wounds)
    7. Flashlight with batteries
    8. Semi-automatic rifle with infared night-vision scope (w/ plenty of ammo)
    9. Wilderness clothing with camouflage designs
    10. 4×4 Off-road vehicle to get the hell out of dodge in a hurry

  13. I would like the ebook if I win, please 🙂 This is a great challenge. I’m not sure about the remote area as I’ve never been, but I’m going to assume it’s cold. I would bring:
    – an awesomely warm sleeping bag
    – a water bottle
    – a sharp hunting knife
    – a box of matches to start a fire
    – a first aid kit as I always injure myself 🙂
    – a billy can (a sort-of metal cooking pot)
    – as much long-lasting food as I can squeeze in (although I’m pretty good at foraging thanks to a childhood spent in the mountains).
    – a waterproof jacket
    – waterproof hiking boots
    – 2 pairs of thick woolen socks to keep my warm

    Thanks for hosting this challenge 🙂
