CHALLANGE #3 - THE FINAL BATTLE

I am doing a Livestream Chat on the Ace/Roc Facebook page with the lovely Anton Strout.  Your final challenge - should you choose to accept it - is to attend the chat and make a comment/ask a question.  The comment must include these words: "Anton Strout is a God Among Men".  The most creative use of this phrase will get a SURPRISE at the end of the chat!

Here is the link to the chat: AMBER BENSON CHAT

The chat starts FRIDAY, MARCH 2nd at 3pm EST - until then you will be forced to watch repeats of Tim and Kathy Keller talking about Marriage.

REPEAT!!!  I will not be on the Ace/Roc Facebook page UNTIL this Friday, March 2nd at 3pm EST!

Come say hi, shout out Anton and I promise you will have a good time!

CHALLENGE #2 - MADEMOISELLE CONSUELA and HER ARMY of ONE

So...first of all...Due to popular demand (and for the slower readers out there) I have decided to extend the FIRST CHALLENGE until March 1st...let me reiterate...in order to qualify for a chance at the SKYPE LUNCH with me, you must post a review of my book Serpent's Storm on one of the qualifying sites ( AMAZON US  AMAZON CA AMAZON UK AMAZON DE BARNES AND NOBLE or ITUNES ) and you must use the word 'chicken' somewhere in the review!

Now for...THE SECOND CHALLENGE!!

You must answer these three questions by March 21st, 2012:

1.) What is the name of Mademoiselle Consuela's Warbot?

2.) In what type of building is Mademoiselle Consuela a prisoner?

3.) Whose naked "male member" makes an appearance at the end of the story?

To find the answers you need to read: Mademoiselle Consuela and Her Army of One - a new short story from  IDW & me for their Zombies Vs. Robots Anthology on Amazon kindle! And the beauty of the whole thing is that it's just 99 cents!  It's available tomorrow - but you can pre-order today!


READ ME

You must send the answers to these three questions to: bensonentertainment@hotmail.com 

Only emailed entries will be counted, so don't leave your answers in the comments section!  I will delete them and they will be disqualified!!


In order to qualify for the SKYPE LUNCH with yours truly you have to complete CHALLENGES #1 and #2!


GOOD LUCK!

Valentine's Day - Shoot An Arrow In My Butt

There is something about this Valentine's holiday that seems false, something that seems tailor made for Hallmark and the flower growers of America and Hershey's.

Corporations - I am not just a consumer. I am a human being. Just because a candy heart says BE MINE doesn't mean I belong to anyone, but myself. And I think that's enough. I think it's alright to not need someone in your life to give you cards and flowers and candy.

I think a smile from a toothless homeless man sitting in front of the grocery store should be enough. Because outside of everything and everyone else...I am okay by myself. We should all be okay by ourselves. We are wonderful and we should love ourselves, as individuals, accordingly.

Happy Valentine's Day to me and to you. You and I are worth a smile and the knowledge that we are loved.

That's enough.
