Quick bit of NEWS first: I have a new FREE short story--Hali's Rescue--up at Lachmuirghan. We're also running another contest there where you can win a free copy of MARSHALL'S GUARD. I'm giving away so much stuff this month! Must be the heat But if you're already hot in this August weather, don't count on Hali's Rescue to help cool you down. In fact, it might set you to boiling. Remember, you have to be 18 years or older to visit this site. Enjoy the read!

Now on to the MOVIE MADNESS CONTEST! I suspect last week's quote might have been a little easy. Seems I picked a popular movie (I did say it was a classic ). Anybody not know the title? I'll post all the correct titles at the end of the four weeks of the contest, just in case someone out there didn't know that most popular quote. Our weekly winner, however, did guess correctly.

CONGRATULATIONS Marilyn Puett! Your movie quoting skills have served you well. You're the winner of the Week 1 drawing. Look for your prize coming soon to a mail box near you.

All of you who entered and guessed correctly in Week 1, remember you're still entered in the Final Grand Prize drawing! Good luck!

This week's Quote might be a little tougher, depending on your movie trivia skills. We'll have to see. Information on How the contest Works and the Official Rules are posted below (be sure to read these if you haven't already!). To enter, just send me an email by using the Contact Me link above. And be sure to tell me the entry is for Week 2's Quote. All right, now the fun part.

WEEK 2 QUOTE: "Let's get out of here before one of those things kills Guy."

Little bit more difficult than last week or not? I love this film. And I know I'm not the only one because it won a Nebula for best script (hey, that's a little hint already! )

Good luck everyone!

HOW THE CONTEST WORKS: Each week, starting on Tuesday, for the four weeks of August, I will post a quote from a Science Fiction or Fantasy Movie--hopefully one not too obscure To enter, just send me an email with the title of the Movie, your name and your email address.

If I think the quote is proving too difficult for people to guess, I'll post a clue on the Friday after the quote is first posted on the website.

A random winner will be selected from all correct entries each week and announced on the day when the next quote is posted. After the final week, I'll draw a random winner from all correct entries from all 4 weeks for a Final Grand Prize. That means if you enter each week for all 4 weeks of the contest (and you guess the correct movie each week ), you'll have 4 entries in the Final Grand Prize drawing.

Each weekly winner will receive a pen (color of your choice) and a thong bookmark. One Grand Prize winner will receive a gift box with (among other things) an Isabo Kelly e-book of your choice, or a coupon for a free Isabo Kelly e-book of any upcoming releases (good for 1 book only; no expiration date).

1. An individual may only enter once per week.
2. An individual may enter once each week for the 4 weeks the contest runs (for a total of 4 entries).
3. Each entry must contain the Movie Title for that week. Once a new quote is posted, entries from the previous week's quote will not be accepted.
4. One winner from all correct entries will be drawn at random each week.
5. Weekly winners will receive a pen (color of choice) and a thong bookmark.
6. After the final week, all correct entries from all 4 weeks will be put into a Grand Prize drawing where one winner will be selected at random. If an individual enters and guesses the Movie Title correctly each week, that individual will have 4 entries placed into the Final Grand Prize drawing.
7. The Grand Prize will be a prize box containing the following (subject to availability): a very posh pen, bookmark, chocolate, playing cards (with EC and CP book covers on the faces), a free Isabo Kelly e-book of choice or a coupon for 1 free Isabo Kelly e-book of a future release (good for 1 book only; no expiration date) and a hand crafted dagger charm (or handmade earrings, depending on availability).
8. Isabo Kelly reserves the right to alter the contents of the Final Grand Prize should any of the above items become unavailable. Final content will be announced with the announcement of the winner.
