My Contestulaphoria is in overdrive

I won the contest. That's right, Me. Little old Trinity went and won himself an entire run of Exiles trades and Jeff Parker, who is ever greater than I thought, is throwing in the first hardback of the Agents of Atlas ongoing series.

I would like to thank, first and foremost, Thomas. He was instrumental in helping me make it clear I was an advocate for Jeff Parker's books.

I would also like to thank 'the girl in the pink teacup' who went above and beyond by posting a comment on Jeff Parker's blog stating that she too was looking for an Agents of Atlas book because of my recommendation.

Thirdly, Mo Stoneskin said he would try something by Jeff Parker and I don't know if it helped but it didn't hurt.

I think the smile on my face might be permanent. I think I may have moved from Contestulaphoria to a full blown case of Contestulitis.

That is all,

Newt

Woo! Congrats! :)

Simon said...

Congratulations mate. Glad to see it worked out! Long may the smile remain on your face.

Hooray! You're an official weiner! I mean WINNER! Well done, my friend. Enjoy the spoils of your shameless flattery. (Still trying to find a copy of bloody Agents of Atlas, though.)

Trinity said...

Well, I found one on Ebay but it seems pricy to me. It amazes me how much more things cost overseas for things I take for granted.

Congrats! I look forward to borrowing them for a good read, minus the Claremont issues, which I'm told are quite horrible...

Trinity said...

They will be waiting for you when you return the books you have. I may be a library but I ain't no charity.

This is awesome! Between your insanely entertaining pacakge to girl interrupted and the girl's comment on Jeff Parker's blog for you, my faith in blogger friends has increased tenfold! Seriously, how awesome are blog friends?

Girl Interrupted said...

Wow! Congrats Trinity! That's pretty cool!

I guess sucking up really can pay off, huh? :P

Enjoy your books.

Trinity said...

Lola, yes blog friends are awesome, and surprisingly reliable. You never got back to me on if you were willing to trek to Dallas for the White Trash Bash? What up?

GI Kate: Yes, Sucking up does work. That is why I keep sending care packages.

Ugh, I forgot about the White Trash Bash! Silly Lola!
