WINNER REVEAL | How Well Do You Know My Novel



IT IS HIGHLY PROBABLE THAT YOU KNOW MY NOVEL ADAMANTINE BETTER THAN I DO, EHWOT

I gave you a selection of six animals that might conceivably show up in my stories, & asked you to pick which one you thought would be showcased in my semi-current-work-in-progress Adamantine.  First person to guess correctly wins a peek at the first ten pages of my manuscript.




& the answer is...









REINDEER

Yes, that's right; reindeer.  Don't ask me why because I don't know, it just is.  Reindeer et al are such fascinating creatures; they're like horse-cattle-camels with oh-no handles* on their heads.  There are still (dwindling) groups of semi-nomadic peoples who keep reindeer, & while the lifestyle is a dying one, it's still fascinating.  Reindeer don't get enough press, I think.



so (what you really want to know) the winner is
ALLISON RUVIDICH
(who sounds like maybe her folk raise reindeer themselves??)

hip! hip! hurrah!  you are the lucky (good luck? bad luck??) recipient of the first ten pages of adamantine! please email me at sprigofbroom293@gmail.com + i will get that to you directly!



* you know, those little handles inside cars that you grab hold of when the driver is going around a sharp bend.  oh-no handles.


Thank you all for participating!  I don't know, should I cook up some more guessing games for you? Let me know in the comments!


until next time
xoxo, jenny

  3. Yay!
    I have actually eaten meat from this beast...a long time ago... In the home of an Eskimo friend... When I lived in Alaska.
    Please don't hate me...I promise not to eat yours.

  4. What?? No! I get the impression that reindeer are a veritable Walmart of goods: edible, wearable, rideable, hitchable... What did it taste like? I want to know!
