The pics are starting to drop into my mailbox. I’ll add more to the gallery as they arrive but here’s the first three.
Barb from Rome who was the first to send the images through. Thanks so much, BG.
Corinne from downtown Vienna during the Pillow-Throwing Fest. So pleased she was photographed before the down started to fly!
Debbie from Kansas in the middle of her feedlot. I love the way the Angus heifers are looking at the books with interest.Debbie says “Reading The Stumpwork Robe is veterinarian approved and guarantees a 5% weight gain daily.” and “Out here in the wild west, we read good stuff to our cattle.”
And from a special and dear reviewer and reader ‘s cat in Maryland and also a much appreciated reader from Istanbul and one little unicorn sitting with Sylvia’s e-reader in the Netherlands.
Mesmered, still in the “stone age” with things like exporting or constructing pics to blogs.
But visions that dance in the mind are:
A giraffe nudging the title page. Wishing he could read and waiting for the audio book, with, no guesses, who reads.
A panther with furrowed brow reading the book, with RA concentration.
RA in a cramped (made for dwarves trailer) reading your book. Furrowed brow mandatory.
Congrats, Mesmered! Go from strength to strength!
Love your ideas, specially the last one. In costume or not, do you think?
I think a lot of people are the same on a couple of levels… not happy with exporting images or not happy with putting face on the net. Which I can understand. The thing is, if its the latter, it could be their pet with the book, or their hands, or even a famous landmark and no body-parts at all!
I’d have loved more takers because there are readers in specially remarkable parts of the UK, Italy, Turkey, the States, Canada… even parts of Australia, but sadly not to be. Anyway, shall leave contest open for a week.
I would have been holding the mini versions myself if I could have figured out the delay setting on my camera.
IF I manage to make a better pic (the books surrounded by fairies?), will I still be able to enter? 😉 Not because I want to win anything, but I’ve just thought of a perfect setting for the stories of Eirie in the House of the Unicorn (i.e. my very own humble abode you can see in the background up there)… will see if I can set up the pic!
That is wonderful seeing the books tour the world! Congratulations!

Woow…!That is such great pictures! I never do that and send to authors. Maybe I should try after this to show some appreciation. =)
Hello Darlyn. They’re great locations, all of them. I just wish more readers were brave enough to send pics of themselves or their animals or kids in some crazy location with the books.
