So, I was bored *always such an exciting way for one of my posts to begin* and came up with a bloody amazing competition with the help of a group of fantabulous m/m authors.
Guess Who’s Who
What’s it about?
You know how some authors use pictures as the inspiration for characters in their stories (also known as novel casting)? Well, I happen to have in my hot little virtual hands a few of these images and now it’s up to you to try and match these pics with the actual characters themselves.
I know who they are. The authors know who they are. But you have to guess.
How to play?
1. Match one pic with one character/book. The character images are all labeled by a number and the characters/books by a letter. Give your answers via comment or email along the lines of 1A, 2B, etc. Name me no names, pretty please.
If you haven’t read a book, click on the link to read the blurb and/or excerpt. This is a guessing game. You won’t be marked on your knowledge
but you won’t win the prize if you fuck up. Promise.
2. You get one chance and one chance only. No changes can be made once you hit that submit/send button and you certainly can’t delete it and try again. I see all.
3. No hinting whatsoever in the comments or anywhere else. If you do, I will get seriously pissed and automatically disqualify you and delete your comments. You’ve been warned.
4. Guesses must be received by
12noon Saturday 22 May 2010 12noon Sunday 23 May (Perth, Western Australia time).
5. *sigh* No, participating m/m authors you can’t play and that’s that.
S/he who gets the most matches correct wins seven ebooks generously donated by said group of fantabulous m/m authors, including Wren Boudreau, Stephani Hecht, Jambrea Jo Jones, Sean Kennedy, Jaime Samms, K Z Snow and Angelia Sparrow.
Guess Who’s Who
Please note that one pic shows the two main characters, but only one of their names has been listed below. *hehehe*
A. Ian from Jaime Samms’ freebie Who Says Shamrocks Aren’t Lucky?
B. Rave from Jambrea Jo Jones’ Retribution
C. Rat from Stephani Hecht’s Savage Awakenings
D. Nick from Angelia Sparrow’s Nikolai
E. Pablo Creed from K Z Snow’s Utopia-X series
F. Kain from Jambrea Jo Jones’ Retribution
G. Michael from Wren Boudreau’s Ice Cream on the Side
H. Win from K Z Snow’s Utopia-X series
I. Simon from Sean Kennedy’s Tigers and Devils
J. Ashton Perry from K Z Snow’s Jude in Chains
Remember that you must send me your guesses by
12noon Saturday 22 May 2010 12noon Sunday 23 May (Perth, Western Australia time).
Disclaimer: All images used for “inspirational” purposes. Any similarities to RL people are a coincidence unless they were intended and in that case feel free to sue the author in question. Thank you.
PS – I’m pretty sure that no RL people were harmed in the process of these novel castings. If they were that’s not my fault either. Mwah, Kris.
I think #6 is Wren's husband, that's what I think. He just looks like Mr. Wren.
Other than that…you done good, Kris! Thanks for the invite, even though you screamed it at me.
I can hear your evil laughter all the way over here in Louisiana… lol!!!
But I guess I will have to put my thinking cap on for this one…
Hope your day is going well my friend….
This is haaarrrrrdddd. Sigh. And none of you authors laugh at me if I get them totally fucked up.
My jutification for such a shitty job is that I can't access some of those sites from work and my memory sucks and I'm old and it's cloudy today and it's after 1:00 PM on the second Friday of the month while I'm wearing white socks. So I really can't be blamed for my performance, extenuating circumstances and all that.
*scrunches face* this is hard Kris, you know I can't think on Fridays.
#3 I can't even see his face.
The only one I can semi-guess is #4 with I. Simon from Sean Kennedy's Tigers and Devils.
I don't know who #8 is but I'd like to take him home and do *covers mouth*
KZ – wha? You are something else, I say!
But he can be Mr. Wren if he wants! He is cute.
Wow. I. Have. No. F-ing. Clue.
Too. Much. Work. On. A. Friday. lol
See Sean. I told you it would be hard.
KZ: It was a yell not a scream and only because you didn't check your friggin' emails.
You made up for it though for which I love you dearly. Maybe forever even.
Cecile: *g* You could always do 'eeny meeny miney moe'.
Tam: I thought this was the day that you wore the striped toe socks. *suspicious* Are you fibbing in case you guesses suck??
KC! No discussion or else I'll have to spank you. You can't drool over the characters either. You perve.
Wren: If only you knew who he was in RL… *zipping lips*
Chris: Are you wussing out??
Tracy: That's okay. You have a week. 😉
No fibbing. White shortie socks with a red heart on the side, with my red sneakers. Smokin'. 😛 However it seems to have impeded my knowledge of characters physical attributes. Maybe if you'd posted pictures of the manhood that inspired them I'd have a better chance. Although finding 10 HUGE ones might have been a challenge. After all, the men of m/m are MASSIVE.
What the hello kind of filthy blog do you think I'm running here, Tam?! Geezus. Everyone's gonna think I'm into pron or something.
roflmfao…. yea… what kind of site do you think she runs here Tam, lmbo…..
AND EXACTLY WHAT THE HELL DO YOU MEAN BY THAT, CECILE?!
Alright here's my best guess but I have no clue if I am anywhere close. This was tough.
If I'm way off blame the friday night glass of wine.
you know i love you my smutty friend… it only means that you run one of the bestest freaking blogs around…….
or else why would i stalk you… and tempt you with my massages…. lol..
It was just a suggestion. I'm only trying to help. Sheesh. Some people can't appreciate brilliance when they see it. Or read it. Whatever.
I have NO idea who any of those are. Have a couple on my TBR, but, yeah…clueless.
Wanted to say cool contest though. Awesome even. 🙂
Lauren: Tough, but fun, right? Lauren?? It was fun, right?! Lauren!
Cecile: Nice save.
Tam: Don't be trying to bring my blog down to your level is all I'm sayin'.
Amora: If it was really awesome you would be willing to give it a try. *sniffle*
Honey, it's to awesome for my laziness! My bad. I'll try. :))
*peeks through weepy fingers*
Really?? You will, Amora? You love me! YAY!
Hi! *waves* I disappeared again (bad Bridget), but I was on vacay and didn't get on the computer once. Whee!
I'm not even going to guess because…well, because I'm lazy and tired and kinda cranky. PMS bites! Ptooey-ptooey!
PS. My verification word? Penique. Ha!
They aren't ALL huge.
My Nick is only 7 inches and feels deeply inadequate next to some of his teachers.
BTW, there is no C in Nikolai.
Play? Nah, I'm just here to snark.
This comment has been removed by the author.
Whoops, sorry. Doing the late-night finger stumble.
Angelia's right; they aren't all huge.
But they have damned nice asses. Or arses. Every last one of 'em, I'll bet. (There are some forms of perfection that just never get boring. *g*)
“dehorser” — OMG, Word Veri is eavesdropping on our comments again!
Really. I promise. I'll try. I'll even try my bestest. And of course I love you, your blog's friggin' awesome. How could I not. 😉
Actually, the picture I submitted was my second choice. Since my books are about cat shifters, I was going to use this one http://tinyurl.com/269m29u Somehow I didn't think it would be hot enough, though. Call me crazy!
Awww – that picture is too cute!
Bridget, hey you. 🙂 I hope you had a great holiday. It's good to see you back around the place.
Penique. “I said to my husband that the boy in the pron film had better penique than he did.”
Angelia: Shit. Sorry Angelia. Corrected to match the list sitting right in friggin' front of me on the desk. *sigh*
I'm all about snark at the moment. So feel free to snark away.
KZ: I don't get why my word veri is so filthy minded. It's weird.
Amora: “And of course I love you, your blog's friggin' awesome. How could I not. ;)”
Good answer. Even if it is the obvious truth. 😉
Looking forward to getting you guesses! I have every faith in you. 🙂
Stephani: I'm sure that there are some on this earth that would seriously think that pic was hot. Might've given the game away a bit though. Just a little.
Okay. Since it appears to be too hard for some of you, I'm thinking hints. But only a couple.
This will mean that both Tam and Lauren get to change their choices though.
What sayeth you?
Whatever, I kicked Lauren's ass. I think. If you want to give clues I'm good with that but yeah, let us change our votes.
That was hilarious Stephani. LOL
Amazing word-veri KZ.
I'm not entering the contest as I'm a fellow author. I just wanted to say it's nice to know I'm not the only perv who has perhaps sought inspiration in one Zac Efron… Carry on! 😉
Tam: Ok. Hints coming up.
Katrina: Zac's twinky self seems to be a fave amongst certain m/m authors. 😛
PS – I'm now using your comments as a hint. You may or may not get in trouble by the author in question. So sorry. No really. I am. *beams*
praise for the hints!
Hints are up in today's post, Amora. 'Specially for you. *bats eyelashes*
*SOB* I can't play because I've never read any of these books. 😦
And why not, Katiebabs chook?! I bet if you use the hints, looks at the covers, and read the blurbs and excerpts you'll be in with a shot. 🙂
too much work for a writer procrastinator like me.
But maybe I should… see you enable me to play when I should be working.
I know! I'm an awesome enabler. *beams*
Cool contest idea, Kris!
Huh. Val and I only have one in common. LOL
Okay, thanks to Matthew *mwah* I'm changing my choices. Okay, I changed one but I have no freaking clue. LOL I look forward to the results.
Tam: Don't be blowing Matthew kisses. Sean and I are peeved let me tell you. Peeved!
Weeellll…..you see. I had some ideas, but was stuck on a few of the pictures. Then I got Kris's clues (which remain obtuse to me LOL) and I changed some around. Then the volcanic ash cloud loomed over the UK once again and I felt compelled to change some *again*…
So now I have no idea at all.
*shrugs and ducks authors' contempt*
I'm not well-read enough, nor am I smart enough for this one!
Veri word: Lersur–a special kind of loser. Yep, that's me.
Sigh. I haven't read any of these–not a single one–but I might as well try to put an end to your whining. So here goes:
Clare: I like how the volcanic ash affected your choices. I would be so using that as a reason for my random behaviour. LOL.
Eyre: Actually, I think it's aimed at everyone else as in 'If you don't play this game then you are a BLOODY LOSER!'
Thank you Eyre for not using your crappy reading as an excuse not to participate. 🙂
Jen: Whining?? Puh-leeze. Whining is for babies. I bitch.
You now come off my 'people I hate' list now. You should feel lucky.
My final answer:
1E; 2J; 3D; 4A; 5G; 6I; 7H; 8C; 9B; 10F
I narrowly resisted spelling words…
