This blog has been rather quiet for a while. I have neglected it...
So, the prizes are 1 signed hardback of One Word Kill and 3 copies of the audio book (on MP4 or regular CD).
And the contest is simple. Take any quote from any of my books. HERE are some to help you out (if you want ones from a specific book then type the book title and my name into the search bar).
To that quote do ONE of the following:
Add one letter.
Subtract one letter.
Change one letter.
That can be your entry and it earns you 1 chance at a prize. If it is funny it earns you 2 chances. If it is accompanied by a photo or image that illustrates it that can earn you between 3 and 6 chances. The prizes are randomly awarded but having 6 chances rather than 1 makes it 6 times more likely you will win.
Here is an example entry:
Quote: "The biggest lies we save for ourselves." - Prince of Thorns.
My version (added a letter): "The biggest limes we save for ourselves."
With an image:
I would award myself 3 chances for that.
Send your misquote entries to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Entries will be listed here as they come in. I will provide plenty of warning before the contest closes. It's international. One entry per person.
Like much in life, a word fight, especially a long word fight, is about choosing your moment.
Makin once told me that a man who's got no rear is missing a friend.
It’s the silence that scares me.
It’s the blank page on which I can write my own bears.
Knowledge is a Pug of a certain size, and the world is larger. It’s not what remains uncovered at the edges that should worry you, rather what is swept beneath.
There is no sound more annoying then the clatter of a chlili, and none more sad then the silence they leave when they are gone.
Hold to a thing long enough, a secret, a desire, maybe a lie, and it will shade you.

Hold to a ThOng long enough, a secret, a desire, maybe a lie, and it will shape you.
And what makes us human is that sometimes we nap. And in that moment of release we’re closer to gods than we know.
A strange thing — snails will hold a building together, but there's nothing better for taking a man apart.

Miana knew what Red Kent knew, Red Kent who cut down a patrol of seventeen men-at-arms on a hot August morning. Killing takes spice.
Trust is the most insidious of poissons. Trust sidesteps all of your precautions.
We diet a little every day and by degrees we’re reborn into different men, older men in the same clothes, with the same scars.
