Win A Free Copy of The Unearthed

Hello there and welcome. Read these rules first:

All you have to do is answer one of these questions correctly by leaving a comment on the blog, and I'll send you a copy of The Unearthed.

You can only answer one question at a time, and it must be one that hasn't been answered correctly already. Once a question has been answered correctly, that's one less copy available.

The answers can be found on this blog. The questions are arranged in order of relative difficulty, from easiest to hardest, but none of them are that hard.

And if you're not lucky enough to win, don't fret. A digital copy of The Unearthed is only $5.50.

1) What's the name of my Rottweiler?

2) What's the name of my German Shorthaired Pointer?

3) What's the name of my editor?

4) What's the name of the short story I posted on this blog?

5) What profession am I in?

6) Now a tough one. Who's my favorite film director?

Thanks for stopping by.

JJ -

Thanks for stopping by. You were only supposed to answer one of the questions, though, so I had to erase your comment.

Send me your email address and I'll forward you a free copy.

Everybody else - that leaves questions 4, 5, and 6 unanswered.

2) What's the name of my German Shorthaired Pointer? - Gracie

Brian O'Rourke said...

Mike M,

Sorry, pal, that one's already been answered. You need to answer question 4, 5, or 6.

Hint: I do the same thing that Jenna does for a living.


Mikie D said...

Just like Starr Jones, You are a lawyer.

Mikie D said...

I like cheese.

Brian O'Rourke said...

Mikie D,

Nick Hughes said...

I'll go for the hard one - that's #6. Sir David Lean. You love those 8-hour epics, don't you?

Brian O'Rourke said...

Number Six has been answered correctly.


You know I love an epic. I do think Lawrence of Arabia could have been longer...I mean, it was only three hours and forty minutes long. There was still some story to tell.

I'm pretty sure I have your email address somewhere...

Brian O'Rourke said...


That leaves just question 4 unanswered.

The book's on its way. According to the review coordinator at Lyrical, BBB was already sent a promotional copy. So do me a favor and let me know if you or someone else is going to do a review. Hope you enjoy!

And did you bottle the belgian white yet?

Brian O'Rourke said...

Mikie D,

I just sent you a copy. Let me know what you think!

You bet I bottled the wheat beer. Matter of fact, I'm mostly through the first case of it. Nick tried it the other night and enjoyed it.

What do you have brewing right now?
