Hmm … “Is this a duplicate post to the one Ashlee published not even two weeks ago?” you may well be asking. “Will she ever stop promoting her darned book and get back to writing fun and meaningful posts for a change?”
Well, I’ll admit, this is more or less a duplicate of the first post in which I notified everyone that The Word Changers eBook was going on sale for 99 cents. And here I am, reminding you again. This time, though, there’s just one more day until the promo period ends (August 22)!
Get your own copy at one of these sites:
This also means, of course, that you are still eligible for entering your name in the GIVEAWAY.
Entered already? Well, first of all let me tell you how much I appreciate your help in sharing about my book!! The Word Changers made it to #6 on the Amazon Christian Fantasy Bestsellers list last week – exciting, yeah?!! I don’t really think it would have made it to the list at all if you hadn’t helped me spread the word, and that’s the truth!
Second of all …. don’t forget that you can always enter your name into the giveaway again! Once a day, in fact.
And in case you forgot (hey, it was two weeks ago …), here are the two items I’m giving away to one lucky winner:
…. and here are the “share” pictures for Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or wherever else you feel like spreading the word:
Oh, and to answer the second question above …. yes, I most certainly DO plan on writing some more fun posts in the near future! Any inspired suggestions?!
Have a great weekend, friends!
Though Robin Williams was never a favorite actor or comedian of mine, there are certain roles I will always remember him for, a handful of which are set in worlds of fantasy or fairy tale.
I grew up watching the movie Hook, based around the story of Peter Pan.
Another favorite of mine growing up was Aladdin – and much of the reason it was a favorite was because of Genie, I must say.
Only a year or two ago did my husband and I discover Shelley Duvall’s Faerie Tale Theatre at our local library, and I was stunned at all the appearances of famous actors and actresses before their prime. Robin Williams was one of them in his role as the Frog Prince. Corny those shows may have been … but no less endearing for that! If you haven’t watched them, you definitely should!
Were you a Robin Williams fan? In what movie or role did you like him best?

I’ve always loved Bilbo’s account of himself when being questioned by the dragon, Smaug. Even when his life is at stake, Bilbo manages to stay witty and even throws in a riddle or two.
So here’s the challenge: If you were to face a dragon with scales like tenfold shields, teeth like swords and wings like a hurricane, and this dragon demanded you to account for yourself … what would you say to him?
I can’t see myself giving any account at all, truth be told, other than perhaps a whimper or two. But let’s pretend you’ve kept your wits about you, maybe even some humor, and definitely creativity.
Here’s my try:
I am enchanted with enchantment, lover of love and hater of hatred. I chase dreams and words and images – and lash them onto pages. I am forest-walker, story-weaver, follower of the Grower of all trees, worshiper of the Teller of all tales.
Your turn! Comment below and share your best description of yourself, Bilbo-style!
