The return of the RIDICULOUSLY HUGE giveaway!

NOW CLOSED - except for those in round 2

I'm running a giveaway to celebrate the release of One Word Kill, my first work of science fiction ... ish. You can see all the elements of it below, a helm, a sword, a set of dice, and a rare signed & doodled Advance Reader Copy of the book!

All you have to do is guess what the numbers on this dice roll add up to!



Full roll here:


Total is 33.

There is a 4-sided die, a 6-sided one, an 8-sided one, two 10-sided dice, one 12-sided and one 20-sided. So the total will be between 7 and 70, inclusive.

You can roll your own dice and make your guess that way.
You can mimic dice on random.org and do it that way.
Or you can just pick a number between 7 & 70, inclusive.

To enter you must post your guess in the comments below along with your email address (or I can't tell you you've won!)

Comments are moderated. Do not panic if yours takes a day or two to show.

I will post the full video so you can see my roll on general release day for One Word Kill, May 1st 2019.

The winner will be the person with the closest guess.
(If we have a tie there will be a second roll (or more if needed) to select a winner. Each extra roll will require you to notice (I will post about it on Twitter and Facebook) and get your new guess in within 24 hours of the previous one.)

Open internationally.

Correct guesses in Round 1:


Jon Adams - crkrlac@gmail.com - Guess = 33

I’m going to guess 33 as it’s my birthday soon! Email is supafly147@hotmail.com

Has 33 been taken? If you could roll that just for me it would be great!
Annmhay@gmail.com

I'm almirantenaismith@gmail.com and I say: 33


Winner, winner, chicken dinner=33. My email is emichaelcarter@gmail.com

My guess is 33. My email is anoyce82@outlook.com

Sarah from Seattle, 33! sarahrmartherus@gmail.com

I'm from Brazil and my number is 33. emilson_livramento@yahoo.com.br

My guess will be: 33  Theamazingmrg@aol.com
My guess is 33... My email id is terintom93@gmail.com

Here is the opening frame of the next (hopefully deciding roll)


& the full video is:


giving a total of 26.

Which means our winner is.... drum roll....

Round 2... My guess is 21... My email id is terintom93@gmail.com



Here I am wearing the first element of the giveaway:


...it's not the jumper or even the Prince of Thorns Tshirt.

& then there is this!



And then these non-standard D&D dice!
