In case you hadn’t read, Sir Wayne Thomas Batson slapped me with a gauntlet tonight, then threw it at my feet.
To see which of us will finish our current book project first.
His, The Errant King, book 2 of the Dark Sea Annals.
Mine, book 1 of what is currently code-named “TSR.”
The stakes are high. Belligerent blog comments.
The reward sweet. Social media bragging rights.
And I heartily accept with a back-handed thwack of an elbow cop to the cheek! That, and I need your help, lords and ladies all. (Even your lapdogs are welcome).
Sir Wayne and I would like to invite you into the carnage. First, you’ll need to choose a side. Who do you say will win? Post here and on Sir Wayne’s site (or on FB or Twitter). Then tell us approximately how many thousand words the winning book will be.
Everyone who picks the correct winner and gets the wordcount within +/- 5,000 words wins a prize!*
Whoever picks the correct winner and is closest to the actual wordcount, wins a bigger prize!**
Hint: the final word count of the winning book will definitely be OVER 50,000 words. If you’re looking for a ballpark figure, you might consider investigating our other books.
What are you waiting for? Choose your side now: The Noble Tribe of the Clean Shaven, or the Razorless Knotted Hair Mass Clan. Who will finish his novel first and how long will it be? ch:
*Note: the prize will definitely be better than a rusted paper clip, but somewhat inferior to hot air balloon ride with Buzz Aldrin.
**Note: the bigger prize will definitely be better than piece of lint, but somewhat inferior to a live sea turtle.
