Hibbs, the cub with no clue and all dancing feet, here!

Mr. Roland let me pick the names for the four autographed books.

Ah, my paws might've mangled up the entries a bit. But we could still make out the names :

MARGO BENSON wins the autographed Laurrel K. Hamiltion

HEATHER McCORKLE wins the DEAN KOONTZ autographed copy of ODD THOMAS


and T. D. McFROST wins the JIM BUTCHER autographed WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE graphic novel

Mr. Roland says I win ...

an autographed copy of


That is so NOT funny, Mr. Roland. Not even on April's Fool's Day!!

All you winners, email Mr. Roland your address so that he can mail you those autographed books! ***

  2. Kelly : Sorry that you didn't win in this drawing.

    But I am having another drawing on the 5th of May for a Stephen King autographed book. Each reveiw on my book, THE BEAR WITH TWO SHADOWS, on Amazon get 5 entries into the drawing.

  3. Thanks, Niki. Hibbs is blushing under his face fur at your compliment. But as I told Kelly, I am having another drawing for a Stephen King autographed book on the 5th of May.

  4. I'm still reading The Bear With Two Shadows, I've been away, and didn't get chance to pick my Kindle up, but I'm really enjoying it.

  5. Applause! That's a great A word.

  6. Great start to the A-z Roland and Hibbs! Congrats to the winners and I truly hope you enjoyed the tour! Have a terrific Friday!

    Applause .. I say definiteeeely to the winners ..

    One day they'll come over the pond won't they Hibbs? cheers Hilary

  14. Congrats to all the winners!

    Yay, Hibbs can finally take a rest for a while. Mr. Roland.... give the poor bear a rest

    Thanks for you comment on my blog. I'm glad you liked the writing. It means a lot coming from you.

  15. Eliza : I hope you enjoy THE BEAR WITH TWO SHADOWS. I'm starting a new drawing where each person who posts a review of my book on Amazon will receive 5 entries to win a Stephen King autographed book. Drawing to be held May 15th.

    Hilary : I worked 13 hours straight yesterday, so, yes, Hibbs had to stand in for me! LOL. Margo lives across the pond so one of the prizes made that journey. Perhaps the Stephen King book will, too.

    Thanks, Golden Eagle.

    Luana : you changed your profile picture. Both are nice. Thanks for the well wishes and the visit.

    Thanks for visiting and commenting, Kristin.

    Holly : It makes my weary morning that you think Hibbs' post is cute. He's blushing under all that face fur!

    Congratulations, Margo. Now, to somehow find time when I am off work and the post office is open! I hear the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE theme. LOL.

    Kitty : Hibbs is dancing as he bows to your standing ovation!

    Summer : This tour certainly was both fun and draining. Think I need a vacation!!

    Mary : I don't think the folks around us receive enough applause or warm recognition for all they do for us, do you?

    Diane : Thanks and have a happy weekend.

    Jules : How are those allergies? Better I hope. Hibbs is bowing again. He thinks the applause is all for him! Bear cubs!!

  16. Michael : Hibbs has now happily collapsed beside me. "Rest!," he sighs. Oops. Now, he's sleeping.

    I had a 13 straight hour day, and I have forgotten how many miles I drove and blood units I filtered alone. Whew!!

    You did a marvelous entry for A today. Very well done. Have a great weekend. Roland

  17. Wow, you've been busy, bro! Doing the blog tours, giveaways... I haven't been around for a bit, but I didn't stop thinking about Hibbs.

    I finally found a solution over at Olivia's site, and downloaded Kindle for PC and got Da Bears on my Kindle-PC!

    Sweet. Can't wait to read it, finally.

    And I see you posted up the Kindle-PC on you blog, too. Smart. I was going to suggest just such a thing. I would have had your book a month ago if I had known about that then.

    Thumbed through your posts, watched the Captain America trailer. Looks good, eh.

    - Eric

  18. Eric : I re-watch that trailer for Captain America from time to time. I really think I will enjoy this movie -- the big kid in me.

    How's the baby, the wife, your life? I hope your writing is going well. I know that you hit a slow patch for awhile.

    Olivia will be so pleased that her posting with that link for :"Kindle for PC" was helpful to you!

    Thanks for downloading THE BEAR WITH TWO SHADOWS. I think you will enjoy journeying with Hibbs and his brothers. Let me know how you like his adventures.

    And between work, writing, and this blog tour, I am drained!!!

    But even though I put in a 13 hour day yesterday, I have one more such day to put in. Then, I get to crash for the weekend. Have a great one yourself. Good to see you back, Roland

  19. Congratulations to the winners!!! Applause, applause, applause!!!!

    Okay, seriously, can I just have that bear?

  20. Yay Me - I mean, Thanks Roland :)

    I know I'll love the book, already sent you my address. I hope you and Hibbs both have a good rest.

    I'm trying to get the book finished so I can write a review for you. I've got several books I've started reading on my Kindle - I know, quit it - and I'm finding I really miss an actual book. Perhaps I just need to be more disciplined in my reading. .

    You and Hibbs get a good long rest this weekend :)


  21. WordsCrafter : Hibbs would eat you out of house and home. His is a never-filled stomach! Yes, Hibbs, I know. You heard that!

    Donna : Now, I have to find some time free from work when the Post Office is open!!

    As for the Kindle, soon you will discover you don't miss the pages. And it remembers where you left off every time!

    I hope you enjoy Hibbs' adventures. Through this month to May 15th, each person who leaves a review of my book on Amazon will receive 5 entries in a drawing to win an autographed book by Stephen King. How cool is that? Roland

  22. Yay! Thank you so much Roland! I'm pretty sure I follow you on Twitter. I'll DM my address to you there. How awesome, I LOVE Koontz!

  23. Hello Hibbs, love your message. Just be. I. Am. Doing. Just. That.
    And, in this moment, my Be-ing aches. I feel raw, stretched, holey. But sometimes, Be-ing is just that. And so it is.

    Congratulations to the deserving winners! that rebel, Olivia
