Heck yeah! I can see that as a movie cover too! lol. Fantastic Mr. B., just fantastic!!! Congrats!
not only would i notice it, It would jump into my hands and i would be pleased with my new find. Very eye catching. ^_^
Extremely cool! It would arrest my attention, I would pull the book off the shelf flip it over and read the back. Then being futher hooked, I'd grin and tuck it under my arm and head for the check out, sure I'd just discovered another favorite tale. I love that feeling
I would SO pick this up and check it out. Great cover!
There, I set it as my Xanga profile pick, I had the "The Final Storm" and now that one's up instead. LOL someone has to let the x-heads know what the next awesome read is ;)
WOW!!! Now I'm stoked! I can't wait. It's going to leap off of the shelves at people. Bookstores better get that giant table in the middle of the entry ready with the big sign that says, "Read this - it's AWESOME!"
Thanks, All!! That's very encouraging. I'll send the praise to TN's remarkable design team.Now, if we could just get that new section in Borders, the "This is Awesome" section... ;-)
ooo ive hear of that one also referred to as the giant table in the middle of the entry with the sign that says "READ THIS ITS AWESOME" i can only praise you enough amy lol
:-D definately a home-run for those talented people. I shouldn't be thinking "I have a Batson book in Blue, in Purple, and in Green, oooh look now I'll have one in Red/Orange."
next we are gonna be looking for one in pink and yellow lol
JUMPIN' HORNY TOADS!! I'm pecking away at the keyboard at 9:20pm, and my wife calls up the stairs, "Honey, there's a FedEx package out on the porch."Any guesses as to what it was?
isle of swords um a gift from a fan a valentines day present a bomb jk
What is it??? What is it??? SUSPENSE!!!!!!!!!
ps: please tell after you open it I would like to know and if you don't reply in 1 hour i will assume it was the bomb lol just kidding again really
oo well this is a good suspense technique lol
Carefully wrapped in a bubble envelope and double-taped…
I know! I know!Is it The Isle of Swords? The very first copy just for you?Mr. B and Josh - I'm glad you guys liked my idea. I think I'll start a letter writing campaign to make it all happen. J/K. It would be cool though.
Grrr just open it open it open IT!!!!! AHHHH!!!!!! (Watch it be something silly) ;-)
Okay - what Suspense Technique # will this one be?
The FedEX technique?
*lol* *Bounces off walls with excitement*
Fed Ex Technique! That's hysterical. Can I use that? Please!Now, where was I…oh yes. So I carefully snipped through the folded over edge of the bubble bag. The halogen kitchen light was not enough to see within the shadowy confines of the cave-like entrance of the envelope...
You're more than welcome to use any of my ideas - I would be honored. Of course - only if you quit toying with us....LOL! I love it!
A hand crafted, etched, beautifully deadly dagger?
A REAL dragon?
Oooo - yes - sharp pointy things!
Portal to the Realm?
The actual Scrolls of Alleble?
Your Paragor flaming mace when you become him in the movie?
A clay pot that suddenly appeared on the porch in a FedEx envelope!
Falon's Talon? Ha ha I rhymed!
Mr. B you're enjoying this way too much...
A letter that starts out "Adventures are funny things..."?
*double sniff* I have to leave in 3 minutes.
Oooh, nice one Amy!
I guess I'll have to wait until later tonight...Bye everyone!
so unfair, so very very unfair! Cruel, cruel and unusal for Amy. *sniffles on behalf of Amy*
Good night Amy! God bless!
Thanks Scribe!*sniff*I really should be going now, farewell to all those who will remain after me - may my sacrifice only lead to greater joy for those of you who remain...
Knight night Amy. ;)
Always writing lol Mr. Batson's teasing and mocking us cruelly......
And I reached into the bag and pulled out the very first Advance Reader Copy of Isle of Swords!! YESSSSSYou should see the cool pages and watermarks--very much like the Door Within quality--cool compass hiatus marks and pirate ships on every chapter page!Suh-WeetSorry to keep you all so supended. Okay, well maybe I'm a little sorry.
Better be :) Congrats and bravo to you!!! GIMME!!!!!!!!
You are so SO not sorry ;) But definately Congrats, from story to book and in your hands, I can't imagine the feeling. I hope to one day however :-D
Wait.....FedEx comes at 9:20 at night???? Wow. Man you got good service. Unless of course you didn't see it until then *snicker*
Yeah, go figure...9:20. Maybe the snow and ice has delayed stuff and now they are working overtime. For whatever reason, I'm grateful.
Oh, I would think that they would have seen it :-D It likely glowed, hovering over the ground, was surrouned with heavenly music. . .you know all the things that make it impossible to miss. . .
hee hee hee..... The Heavens split open and the angels sang.
Better than it being incapsulated in the ice. LOL now that would be a way to torment any author, first copy of their new book in a ziplock bag, and that frozen in the center of a block of ice the size of their car.Oh, I must remember that
finitely pick this one up. Great cover! Love the art and the colors.
That was supposed to be "I'd definitely pick that one up..." I'm not quite sure what happened there. :-/
oooo a nice shiny new copie of isle of swords my mouth is watering. The agony the pain i must not wait any longer. okay i exaggerated a bit but not much lol. I missed all the excitement because i was watching csi bummer lol, i am sooooooo envious thou hehehehehe now i sound deranged and creepy
Nahhh, it's all Lord Batson's fault. He started our wanting to read the whole thing with his ''previews''
I see blame it on the author lol ^_^
Oh most definately blame it on the Author :-D All his fault.
Yay! So do we win points for guessing correctly? Or - well, I suppose I'll just be content with the fact that we now actually do know what it is. Who knows?! We may get copies of Isle of Swords for a prize for the contests - so I'm okay with that. I'm just glad you get to look at the finished product of your labor, Mr. B. Congratulations! You've earned this moment.
I just asked my mom, who works at Borders, if she would have them put the books on a table in the middle of the floor like you were all talking about:-D I don't know if she has the power to do that though;-)Hehe.Anyway, great cover! The colors are very nice. And it would deffinately draw my attention in the book store!
Hey thanks Cecilia! The idea has just caught on. It could happen. My dreams may some day be reality. (*note dramatic delivery)
If that ever happens, I'll have her take a picture of it:-) It's very possible too, I always see their featured books out on big tables...I don't know about the sign though;-)
Wayne...I'm loving it. Gorgeous! Btw, I just posted our interview:christopherhopper.wordpress.comEnjoy!CH
What a gorgeous cover! Can't wait to read what's inside!
Thomas Nelson came up big again! Good for them. This is so great. And to answer your question ... uh, YEAH I'd pick it up. More like it would reach out and GRAB ME! ;-)Becky
Thanks, Chris and Becky! It won't be too long and you can read Isle of Swords--that is, if I ever finish the edits.
OMG! This is awesome dude! Dude!I'd so totally buy this. Love the oranges!*you like my Cali talk? I can't seem to stop myself since I started on my new book* :PVery cool, Wayne. So when can we schedule your next tour? :D
