And now a contest....



I'm reposting the contest info. It's at the bottom of the post below which is quite possibly one of the loooongest posts I've ever written! But that's because yesterday's was such an interesting adventure.

So, between now and Monday at midnight my time (Pacific), guess what's the most number of stings Dr. Laura Hershey, Bee Lady Extraordinaire has sustained in a single episode. Post your number in the comments section. The closest person wins an ARC (Advance Reader's Copy) of Julia Gillian by Alison McGhee or The Year My Sister Got Lucky by Aimee Friedman. The first ARC is a middle-grade novel; the second is young adult.

AND AND AND I'll toss in one of the delicious I So Don't Do Mysteries Hershey Crunch bars!

I'll check the comments section of this post and the one below. No worries

227, but how about your ARC, Barrie? ;)

Barrie said...

That's a great idea, Larramie! Maybe I'll give away my own ARC a little closer to the pub date? Hard to believe it's still over half a year away.

I'll go with 165 (this is at one time yes? - not over a lifetime?)

In one go 165.

But I bet it's something like 2!

Barrie said...

Janey, yes, in one go. :)

Kellan said...

Hi Barrie - I am going to guess that it's really not all that many and say 12.

Nice to see you today - thanks for stopping by. I like the thought of a leprechon hat - HA!

Have a good weekend - Kellan

RR2 said...

Laura said...

Angela said...

Chocolate yum

Beth said...

I love contests....so I'm gonna guess.....147. Why? I have no idea.

Chantal said...

I just read your bee lady story. Very cool. She sounds interesting.

I will guess 161.

Lisa said...

Hmm...my guess is 52. Very interesting stuff.

Christina Phillips said...

Swishy said...

Let's saaaaaaaay ... 93.

Mary Ann said...

I'm thinking...13 on a Friday episode. Loved your posting of her visit.

Laura said...

102

By yourself something!!!
Enjoy!

I think most of the estimates are way too high; hundreds or even dozens of bee stings can send you to the Afterlife. On the other hand, you wouldn't be posing the question unless the answer were interesting. 12 and 13 have already been guessed. I'll say:

Eleven.

Caryn said...

I'm torn between guessing something really high or really low (like zero). So I'm going with...two.

I don't know how to even go about guessing. But, I did link you blog to my blog! That's something.
