Dreamwalker Cover Okay, Gang—I’ve wanted to start a Mad Libs-style game with you for quite a while now. We’re a pretty funny bunch, so I think whatever we come up with would be amazing. The thing is: most of us who read this blog are lurkers (myself included), but in order to play, I need you to come out of the bushes and leave a comment. Use a fake name if it makes you feel better. But this is only going to work if you help me out and play along.

Fake names ready? Okay!

I’ve taken an excerpt from a book called DREAMWALKER by Angela Wallace. I’m smitten by this comic/adventure fantasy novella. It’s about a woman who’s a retired warrior and has the ability to walk in the dream world. It’s widely thought that she’s the only one, but then she meets another, a dreamwalker for hire who uses his abilities to do very bad things. Neat, right? There’s also romance, but, as much as the dashing villain tries to romance our intrepid heroine, said heroine really only wants to punch the dashing villain in the face.

My kind of romance.

Anyway, I’m a big fan of this book and I’m excited because it’s turning into a series. The next book is coming out in the next few months, and this is my geek girl way of being happy about it.

But wait! There’s more! Giveaways and word games go together like sacrificial knives and tacky underwear, so let’s do it! I’m going to give away an ebook copy of DREAMWALKER. Sadly, in order to receive a copy you have to live in the U.S. If you live elsewhere, you can still play. And I hope you do.

To enter, all you have to do is comment below with your noun, verb, adjective, or adverb.

If you want to play but don’t want to enter the giveaway, all you have to do is make the (private) email address on your comment something like NoBookPleaseNoBookPlease #AT# ERMAGHERDBERK.com. Or whatever. Just make it clear by your email address that you don’t want to enter the giveaway.

THE RULES

  1. Your words must be PG rated. This is a family-friendly blog. Mostly.
  2. There are a limited number of nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc. Pick ONE, say which one you’re going with, and then submit your suggestion for that type of word.
  3. Once all of a category of word is chosen (say, we have 5 suggestions for adjectives), you have to pick another category.
  4. On Friday, I will post the story excerpt with our goofy words inserted, and announce the winner to the DREAMWALKER giveaway! (The winner will be chosen at random by one of those programs that do random number generation thingies. I’m so technical.)

So here we go! Post your submissions below, or this won’t be funny. And remember, my fellow Lurkers, code names are encouraged to protect the guilty.
