Contest Winner and New Contest Announcement

It has been so long since my “Guess the Publication Date Contest” for The Ride that you may have forgotten all about it, but I haven’t. The entries ranged from January 14, 2008 to July 18, 2008.

Although The Ride is not yet ready for release, I am happy to announce the winner. Imagine a drum Roll here…Congratulations Karen Benson!

Karen submitted the entry with a date of July 18th and that is the latest date of all entries received. Therefore, regardless when the book comes out, Karen has the closest guess. So Karen, as soon as I receive the book, I will sign a copy and mail it to you.

A heart-felt thank-you to all of you who entered the contest. I believed The Ride would be available no later than the first quarter of the year. I know many of you were influenced by my optimistic view. My apologies.

For that reason and because I had so much fun receiving your entries, I am holding a “Guess the Publication Date Contest, II.”

The rules are the same. The person coming closest to the actual release day (month, day, year) will be the winner. You can enter by leaving your guess as a comment after this or any of my blogs between today and the end of the month (July 31), which is the last date I will accept entries. Or, if you are not comfortable leaving a comment, simply e-mail me at One entry per person, please.

Hurry, get your entries in quickly. Remember to include day, month and year. I also need a way to contact you should you have the winning entry, so please include your address, phone or a valid e-mail address.

Feel free to pass along to your friends and family to let them know about the contest. The more entries, the merrier.

Again, thanks for your support all these months. I appreciate all your encouragement.

I hope I can announce another winner sooner rather than later.

Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to receiving your entries.

Author of The Ride (to be released by ArcheBooks Publishing)

congratulations on your release and I know you are excited! wow! Now go open a large bottle of champagne as I know the hard work will start soon in marketing it.

I have added my blog to the bottom of my web site located at it will be great to see what yo think of the new arrangement.

I wish you the very best

Thanks Johnny Ray, but I think I will save the champagne until I have a book in hand. I still have no idea how much longer this process will take - thus Contest II.

I'm on my way to visit your site.
