Different Lee Giveaway


Help Shape the Fate of Different Lee

Different Lee 24 May 2016 KINDLE website versionMy latest novel, Different Lee, is being considered for publication by Kindle Press, an Amazon imprint. The first part of the process allows reader input to determine which books will be given a final review by the editors. If you have a few minutes, I’d be honored if you took a look at the description and excerpt, and nominate the book if you find it worthy. You can find the page here: https://kindlescout.amazon.com/p/30EQP6XQRMJ7J. Thanks for your continued support; it means a great deal to me.

To celebrate the occasion, I am also hosting a giveaway, the widget for which you can find below. (Visiting the Kindle Scout campaign page is an entry option, but please note that nominating the book is not. Though I would certainly appreciate your support, a nomination does not increase your odds of winning.)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

  2. verification page did not work but loved the excerpt about waking up from the strange dream with blood on his pillow, seeing the marks on his neck and thinking it was the Goth girl. my kids and grandkids love your books.

    1. Thanks for putting the verification information here. I’m sorry about the earlier error. I’m very glad, though, that your kids and grandkids enjoy my work.

  3. my novel is about greed and murder. It involves Sam who is a foreman painter and seems to only get the nicest and biggest jobs to go on. Who had it out for him? The apprentices, the union itself, his journeyman friends who he works with?

  4. I couldn’t comment on the contest page, the link didn’t work. But if I were to write a book, it would be about my life! My crazy childhood, diagnosis of Arnold-Chiari Brain Malformation, brain surgery, etc.!

    1. That was odd, especially considering the link was correct. It may be an odd server issue, but it has been fixed. My apologies for the issue.

  5. the link to the verification didn’t work, but i love that his dreams start to become part of his waking life. A lot of my friends have done dream analysis, and Ive always found dreams fascinating.

  6. I couldn’t go to the link – it said – Ooops… Error 404
    We are sorry, but the page you are looking for does not exist.

    I will enter my answer here:

    I would write about a person caught in a time loop. I would have it be syfi- based.

  7. The same problem happened with the other link to.

    Here is my answer:

    Abandoned at birth, DL has tried to cut himself off from his past as much as possible, lying if necessary to conceal what little he knows about himself.

  8. The link to the verification page is (still?) broken, so I couldn’t comment.
    As to your question I’m thinking along the lines of a cozy mystery. Emma wants to visit her grandfathers grave only to find that they did some woodcutting on the premises which left lots of graves buried beneath branches and leaves. To make matters worse there’s a pair of feet sticking out beneath the branches directly on her grandfathers final resting place. Gramps wouldn’t be amused, Emma is neither. And so the amateur sleuting begins …

    1. I tested it several times yesterday, and it did work for me every time, but just in case, I switched the setting from private to public. (You should have been able to access a private page if you had the link, but clearly something freaky was going on.)

      As for your book idea, I’d read that book. It sounds very interesting.

  9. Abandoned at birth, DL has tried to cut himself off from his past as much as possible, lying if necessary to conceal what little he knows about himself

  10. I would write children’s novels as poetry in quatrain and rhyme format
    Fantasy and creative creatures but lessons to learn

  11. Good Golly Miss Molly , I would write about my life. A biography. Wow, grand prize $300 amazon gc is fab. & splendid. 2 fingers snap. It is tight, fly & off the chain. Thank you for the awesomeness, the contest, and generosity. 🙂 Pick me, pick me! Dear Santa: I’ve been nice. My X-Mas wish this year is to win this contest. Starving artist here desperately needs the grand prize of $300 gc to shop and eat. A life changing exp.

  12. Well I’m super into horror novels, so I would probably take on writing my own horror novel. I’ve written a few short horror stories and won some rewards for them, but if I were to write an actual novel I would probably use the idea of some nightmares I’ve had. Demon children come to mind lol

  13. Christina Abrahamson

    The Link did not work but I would write a novel about my Great Grandmother’s life walking the Trail of Tears back in the early 1900’s.

  14. “ERROR” is still the result of clicking on the link. I would write a biography along the line of Jeanette Walls’ The Glass Castle (fantastic book!). Do you write your own book description? I am turned off by so many weak book descriptions on Amazon but your’s are always good. Also I think your students are lucky having you as a teacher, your optimism shines through in your writing.

    1. Yes, I do write my own descriptions. I’m glad you like them.

      I’m retired now, but I did teach for thirty-six years, and I would certainly like to think my students gained something from me.

  15. Michelle Northcutt

    I’d write a thriller about a mysterious CIA agent who wakes up one day with amnesia! Couldn’t use the link to comment so I did it here!

  16. A woman meets a little boy in a park, and sparks up a conversation with him. After their meeting they both go their separate ways and resume their lives. Little does she know that she will meet that little boy again 25 years later, when he is believed to be the one that murdered her daughter. That’s all I got. If someone with writing talent can flesh it out and make it a decent thriller, I wish them luck with it. I have ideas but don’t have the writing talent to execute it! 😀

  17. My novel is about the excitement and the unknown of starting your life as a single independent person. It would show the journey through a life of freedom and excitement while learning from mistakes and experiences.

  18. I would probaly write a Science Fiction medical horror….something that makes you think…OH Crap that could happen!

  19. I’ve written 3 novels for NaNoWriMo! I’m writing a middle grade book this year…i did that a couple years ago and liked the story but I never really finished it or edited it, so I’m trying again….with better grammar than this sentence is lol.

  20. I also get an error link to the contest page.
    I would write a book similar to the Little House on the Prairie series. Those books shaped my childhood growing up! I loved reading about simple life and hard work.

  21. Unable to comment through the link but I have some characters already in progress for a romance that I want to write! I’ve been messing with it for over a year but not gotten very far.

  22. I would love to write mystery novels, with the sleuth being an artist by day and tarot reader by night.

  23. I got an Ooops… Error 404
    We are sorry, but the page you are looking for does not exist for the comment link.

    I would write about a dragon that loses the ability to fly and has to get help from humans.

  24. If I were to write a novel the main character would be a young, Scottish girl. It would be set in Scotland during the time of William Wallace. I would probably write a coming of age type story.

  25. The link would not work for the blog post comment. I would write about a civilization that lives in the sea.

  26. I think if I wrote a book it would be about children overcoming their demons 🙂 ( real and imaginary)

  27. I am a writer who doesn’t write. Funny I should see your post today. I actually have a novel started, just a beginning, no real solid plot, just a character who won’t leave me alone. It is a novel about how different people experience God. I have tried to make the tone funny and approachable to everyone. We’ll see how it goes!

  28. I am into fantasy, sci-fi, mystery and HORROR. So I would write about some unnatural phenomenon which started after UFO crash, which mutates everything living and dead to horrified creatures. People become evil, angrier, hungrier for alive meat, psychically enhanced, their appearance changes to something like the creature from Jeepers Creepers mixed with Venom Symbiote from marvel comics so does their behavior, What they kill they eat, what they touch they infect. Animals and plants can be infected too, animals can turn into frenzy, growing stronger, smarter and bigger, always hungry for living flesh, don’t know about plants, maybe to turn them into some versions of meat eaters, with shark or octopus teeth and able to move their branches or other parts. So everything is after humans. Now I need some group of people which are infected but still somewhat able to control themselves, which are to protect what the can, their homes, families, others or just themselves. Maybe even save us all. That is what I have. I want it to be somewhat similar to Stephen King novels, I love creatures in them, but more explained if possible. Thank you for this chance

  29. If I were to write a novel it would probably be a fictionalized account of my life and my struggle with mental illness and PTSD.

  30. Oh lets see…if I were to write, I would probably want to write a mystery romance! I like when the two meet and do not get along very well at first…then fall. 🙂


  32. If i were to write a novel, it would be a mess of an individual, experiencing something a bit sci fi and finding someone along the way, who helps them to solve the sci fi issue, as well as fall in love.

  33. If I wrote a novel I would write about my life as a mom! I feel like it’s something many women would be able to connect with.

  34. My novel would be like a reality show, since I know nothing about writing (other than comments online). It would be about a regular family and their everyday lives. From funny to heartwarming to sad and angry, I’d throw in situations we can all relate to. And a dog. Gotta have a dog.

  35. I couldn’t comment on the contest page because the link didn’t work. But if I wrote a novel it would be about aliens posing as doctors in psychiatric hospitals to find better ways to help the patients!

  36. If I wrote my own novel it would be about an independent girl that goes on adventures around the world. she would love history and making new friends.

  37. if i were to write a novel it would be about hope and family. i’m not a writer, or even a storyteller, really, though, so it is hard to imagine what kind of story i would craft if i had to.

  38. Well, I tried to use the link in the Giveaway widget but received an”Oooops, 404″ message. So, I’m joining the crowd and posting here. Believe it or not, I used to think about writing a novel when I was a young teen. A romance of course. I did start it and filled a few notebooks up. Didn’t finish it though and I hope I still have the notebooks packed away. I haven’t seen those notebooks in several years and we have moved 3 times during this period. Right now, I’m trying to write a WordPress blog and I am a total newbie.

  39. The link to the blog post didn’t work, so I hope this counts for Kindle Scout visiting, and the blog post , both. I would write a Speculative Fiction book.

    Different Lee is a different name, all right.

  40. I liked the part about scales on his back. It made me realize he’s not part demon/angel but a dragon? Now that’s different!

  41. The link did not work! I would write about my childhood and overcoming bullying. I would write about allowing yourself to bloom into the person you’re supposed to be, not what people want you to be.

  42. I wish I had your talent and could write like you. I fell in love with that excerpt and now I have to buy that book. I have to know what happens!! It’s already eating away at me, lol!! What are those puncture marks???And why did his hands change and how could he lift that car and who is that crazy chick who won’t get her picture taken??? I HAVE TO KNOW!!!

    If I did have your talent, I would write chick lit…probably about a sassy, no-nonsense and a little bit crazy woman who deals with the perils of dating and finding Mr. Right, etc. I love those kind of books when I’m laying on the beach…no thought involved…just an easy funny read!

  43. I had an error page pop up, so I am writing my answer here: I would write about the ups and downs of life if I were to actually write a novel.

    1. Yes, those error messages are curious, especially when they don’t seem to be consistent, and all the links work for me. Fortunately, people get their answers in one way or another.
