Hi, this is SwordMuncher. I went to Eric's blog and read the article on Deep Fried Soccer Balls. I left this comment: Those sound tasty, but I much prefer deep fried Oreos.

Here are the three facts about his book:
1. It was first written in 1902.
2. It's about a goblin named Havewarts who picks his nose all the time.
3. The main setting is the dumpster behind a seafood restaurant.

Man, I can't comment on his blog because I don't have an account. Could I get partial credit if I commented here?

I read "Update on Book 2" and wanted to say, "That's an awesome picture! I love the white dragon, it looks very...regal."

Three facts:
1). Ryann Watters is visited by the good angel Gabriel.
2). A dark angel visits a boy named Drake Dunfellow with commands to stop Ryann from finding the king's sword.
3). The spiritual aspect of the book is spiritual warfare.

Mr. Batson, could this count?

I read the article "Update on Book 2". I had to create a blogger account to post but it wasn't hard since I already have a gmail account. My comment was: "This sounds like another fantasy series to add to my "to read" list! I really like the picture posted with the white dragon; it makes me curious about the books."

Three facts are:

3) He hopes to finish writing the book by Christmas.

I read the article "Update on Book 2".
Um, I tried to comment, but it won't let me comment anonymously! If I WERE to comment, it'd probably be something like this...
"I love the picture! Book 2 sounds exciting! I still haven't read Book 1, but it's definitely on my to-read list! (I actually have a literal list, and it's on there.)"

Anyway, I'll still give three facts, even though I can't comment:
1. Corey Wolfe is the cover artist for Book 1 and Book 2
2. There are a lot of new fantasy creatures in Book 2, including the new race called "Hugons"
3. Book 2 is called "Ryann Watters and the Shield of Faith"

I read the article "Update of Book 2"
When I tried to comment, it would not let me because I don't have a blogger name. However, If I could have left a comment, I would have said, "I have never read your books before but by what you sait about your new one coming out, I am very interested in reading one of yours!"

Three facts:
1. There are going to be fantasy creatures galor.
2. Sorcha the White Dragon plays a key role in the story.
3. Book two is filled with intense action.
Will this count even though I could not leave a comment on his page?

I read the latest article, the one on the fantasy art piece and Eric's second book. My comment went as follows:

I'm not usually a big fan of art, but good fantasy pictures pique my attention...:)

Your books sound great...but they're going to steal all of my ideas for my own books! :) Haha. I'd better get to it, or the accomplished authors are going to sweep me out :P

(I left it a few hours before this one...)
And my three facts:
The hero finds a ring that changes colours to tell him what to do
There are talking animals in the book (in Alienna, the mystical world)
There are two boys who are given tasks and powers by angels: the hero is given the task by Gabriel, the archangel of God, and the other is commissioned by a dark angel who fell from heaven.
The book starts off in the same state where the author lives

I know, that's four. But I think I might have kinda repeated some that people have already said...

I commented on July 14th's post of "Update on book2!"

Three Facts about the book:the angel Gabriel recruites Ryann to find the King's Sword,
Ryann's friends are helping him try to find the King's Sword,
the school's local bully has been recruited for the other side and he keeps trying to stop the trio.

I read the article "New 'Happy Birthday America' Contest!" and posted:
"Oh, wow! sounds cool! Let's see... Oh, I know someone in Alaska! i'll write them right away!"

And I learned that:
the 'our world' part of the story is set in Mount Dora

the fantasy part is set in Aeliana

An the white dragon, Sorcha, is not mentioned much in the first book but plays a key role in the second book

Running total: 660 points!

(ya never said it had to be a long comment ^.-)

Nisly_Family said...

Umm, Mr. Batson, I don't know about everyone else, but I never got 50 points for my comment.

Magma said...

it might be because our real names our different then our usernames.
