‘guess who’s who’: pre-competition competition

I’ve given you a kick arse competition.

I’ve given you the best hints in the world.

I’ve given you an extra 24 hours.

And I’ve even threatened you.

But still some of you trot out ridiculous excuses like you haven’t read the books so you can’t enter.

Well, that’s just friggin’ great.

Obviously none of you understand what a GUESS means or thought about the ramifications of your comments.

That is, I now have a bunch of whingey, chocolate-eating authors on my hands because they think no one reads their work.

Thanks. Thanks a lot.


In an effort to put an end to your total lack of win, I – not the authors, ME – am going to give away one ecopy of each of the books in the competition to seven random people.

That’s right. The names of seven people will be pulled out of a hat and then one ebook will be randomly selected for those people. You can let me know if you already have a book and don’t want to go into the running for that one, but otherwise it will be completely up to the Book Gods.

The conditions, of course, are that you have to enter the Guess Who’s Who competition and tell me how much you love me.

Because I’m nice, I’ll even let those who’ve already made their guesses, but who might not have a book enter.

Oh, and did I mention this will all end in JUST FOUR HOURS from posting??

*smiles sweetly*

    Wait a minute – this posted at 6 pm CDT, Thursday, May 20. By my calculations (with the help of the World Time Clock), the contest doesn't end until 11 pm CDT, Friday, May 21 (aka noon May 22 Perth time).

    I am so confused.

  2. YAY! Free books!!


    ~is scared of the rainbow trout stare~

  3. Val says:

    It's a totally kick-arse competition, and now we're even getting entered into a contest? It doesn't get much better than this!

    Well, just for reference, I already have Ice Cream on the Side, Jude in Chains, Nikolai, and Tigers and Devils. (And tell those authors to stop eating all that chocolate immediately, ha, ha!)

  4. Kris says:

    Chris: Nup, this posted at 7.08 AM on Friday 21 May my time, which mean the comp will end today at 11.08 AM.

    Not sure what's up with your time thingy, hun, but it ain't working.

    Jase: Ha! I knew I would get kisses for this. 😉

    PS – You should be. Chris still has nightmares from an episode we no longer talk about.

    Val: It's true. I'm friggin' awesome.

  5. Kris *puppy dog eyes* I guessed one, can't I get a smiley face sticker?

    PS And no I do not have Ice Cream on the Side and it would be really cool if I wont it…somewhere…like on a certain person's bloggy.

  6. Chris says:

    Ok. Obviously I had a really rough day. I was thinking you were talking about the actual guessing game, but this is an additional competition?!

    *trying to figure out what the hell to include in linkity post*

    The only two out of that impressive list that I don't have are Nikolai and Retribution. (And now I've probably further wounded Angelia and Jambrea…)

  7. Patti says:

    I threw in random guesses b/c *glances from side to side and whispers* I haven't read any…

    w/v: pandsup – panda's secret greeting “'sup?”

  8. Kris says:

    KC: Puppy dog eyes don't work on me. You know that. If you win you have to give me a REAL entry.

    Chris: This is a pre-competition competition to get slackers like KC to actually enter.

    The linkity should be for the main comp.

    Patti, dammit! Why do you have to say stuff like that? I've only just got them to stop crying!

  9. Chris says:

    Based on KZ's comment just now, I'd say you haven't gotten close to stopping their tears…

  10. K. Z. Snow says:

    See my message in the previous post for an even better contest idea.

  11. Tam says:

    I love you more than life itself and would throw myself in front of a raging kangaroo and rabid wallaby for you. 😀 How's that?

    I've read them all except Jambrea's and Angelia's.

  12. Kris says:

    *sigh* Chris, don't encourage her.

    KZ: No!

    Tam: Wow. You crazy love me. *g*

  13. JenB says:

    I haven't read the books

    AND I don't want to win any books, because I don't have time to read them

    but I STILL entered your contest, you brat.

    So stuff it, biatch. 😛

    and omg, in your response to KC, at first I read that as “rear entry”

  14. Kris says:

    Jen The Redneck: Who're you calling a biatch, beeyotch.

    KC and I don't have that kind of a relationship.

    You have a filthy mind, btw.

  15. *Waaaaaah**deepbreath**Waaaaahhhh*

  16. Beth says:

    I already have Retribution, but none of the others. Don't blame me. Several of them are on my wish list but the budget has a fit if I even think of trying to shorten that list by buying books. The only reason I have Retribution is that I won it in a contest.

    (I did enter my picks in the guessing game but I know I probably got most of them wrong)

  17. Eyre says:

    Hmm . . . I have Ice Cream on the Side, Tigers and Devils, and Savage Awakenings.

    Kris, I'll put my evil teacher stare up against your trout stare any day–especially since you scared my sweet Jase!

  18. Tam says:

    Beth: I have read most of them and I think I got the majority of them wrong. Although I think I might have gotten KZ's right (maybe we share a pervy mind-meld – at least I hope I got them right. I'm hoping for at least 2 or 3. LOL)

  19. Kris says:

    Wren, will you stop already. Geezus.

    Beth: 🙂 At least you gave it a good try, hun, unlike some *glares at KC* people.

    Eyre: The Mumma uses the teacher stare and voice all the time. You should ask her whether it works on me anymore. 😛

  20. Lily says:

    You know I bow down to your awesomeness, right?

    I haven't read Angelia's, Jamnrea's or Stephani's.

  21. I'm still forming an author support group. We can give ourselves a cool name, get snazzy matching jackets and use a secret handshake.

  22. Mariana says:

    I've bought all the books… no need to enter me. However, I'm dying to know what's what!

  23. Nastassia says:

    I entered the contest , but they were totally random guesses since I don't have any of the books.

  24. Teresa says:

    Okay I got here, hopefully in time to enter this contest. I'm sure my guesses on the other won't do me any good.

  25. Kris says:

    Lily: Maybe. You should tell me again though. Just to make sure.

    Stephani: What know secret names for each other? That will be disappointing for the others.

    Mariana: I think a lot of people are getting curious now as to who's who. LOL.

    Nas: You're in for a freebie, despite you're giving me shit about the lack of cookies. 😛

    Teresa: Two hours to go so plenty of time! 🙂

  26. K. Z. Snow says:

    Re. the hints: I know for a fact you stole one of them from a very famous and talented author (who, needless to say, isn't part of this ill-fated contest).

  27. Kris says:

    KZ: I'm sure Katrina totally approves of my stealage.


    There is only just over an hour left for this so if you feel the need to pimp you'd better get to it quickly.

  28. Juniper says:

    There's a real sort of Bobbitt vibe about you & the thought of the sociopathicrainbowtroutstareofdeath is definitely nightmare material.

    & so, without any form of duress whatsoever, I'm visiting to enter the comp. Who-da-thunk giving away stuff would be so difficult?

  29. Kris says:

    Juniper: Bobbitt vibe?? Surely you exaggerate, or possibly you are confusing me with someone else. Yes, I'm sure that's it. *smiles sweetly*

  30. nichem says:

    I want to win a book! Did I make it in time? I have Ice Cream on the Side, Tigers and Devils, and Jude in Chains, but I'd love one of the others. 🙂

    Oh wait– I forgot the conditions. Well, I've already given my guesses so … Kris, you're so wonderful, and funny, and of course generous, and your blog is kick-ass, and your hair is such a beautiful pink color, and you have exquisite decorating taste, and I lurve you. How's that?

  31. nichem says:

    BTW, I started that post at 11:00, but there were so many superlatives I needed to add about you that it took me awhile to type– but since I started at 11 it should still count. 🙂

  32. Patti says:

    Kris: You've given me inspiration. At some point this summer I'm going to read 5 of these authors and post about it for a week. *scurries off to work this out….*

  33. Kris says:

    I was just about to officially close this pre-comp comp, Richelle. You're damned lucky and owe me big time. Only kidding. *Not really.*

  34. Kris says:

    Richelle: Don't push it.

    Patti: Really?? Awesome. I can't wait to see what you think of them. 🙂

  47. K. Z. Snow says:
