We’re Going On a Treasure Hunt!

We’re going on a treasure hunt!
(slap right knee, left knee, hands together twice, repeat in rhythm)
Got my mouse,
Got my URL
Got my questions… ?

Temporarily pushing aside the old game resurrected from grade school; I have an extra Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) of The Silent Dragon, Children of the Dragon Nimbus #1, by Irene Radford, release date from DAW Books 2/5/13.  This is a bound copy of the uncorrected page proofs.  I have only the one to give away, and I will autograph and date the autograph for the winner of the treasure hunt.  That makes this a unique and precious collectable.


So, what do you have to do to continue the game?

Go to http://www.ireneradford.com my newly updated website with access to pages dedicated to my pen names.  Find the answers to the questions listed below and send the answers directly to me.  Do not post them in comments as they are public and will give slackers all the answers.  So either message me through Live Journal or Facebook, if that is where you are reading this, or click on the “Blog” button on the website, that will take you to LJ and you can use the message facility there.

A winner will be drawn randomly from the entrants who have all the correct answers.  Contest ends January 21, 2013 at 9AM PST.  I’ll announce the winner on Live Journal, Facebook, and Book View Café.  The winner can then contact me with a mailing address to receive your prize.  U.S. mailing only please.

Selection of winners is the exclusive right of the author.  There is no right of appeal.


1)   Who comes to dinner on my back deck?
2)   Where was the last picture of my Mom taken?
3)   What are my other pen names.  (note that is plural).
4)   What is my 1st historical non-fiction book?
5)   What are the names of the 2 small presses I edit for?
BONUS QUESTION: Which small press has re-printed the Merlin Descendants Books?

Good luck!


About Phyllis Irene Radford

Irene Radford has been writing stories ever since she figured out what a pencil was for. A member of an endangered species—a native Oregonian who lives in Oregon—she and her husband make their home in Welches, Oregon where deer, bears, coyotes, hawks, owls, and woodpeckers feed regularly on their back deck. A museum trained historian, Irene has spent many hours prowling pioneer cemeteries deepening her connections to the past. Raised in a military family she grew up all over the US and learned early on that books are friends that don’t get left behind with a move. Her interests and reading range from ancient history, to spiritual meditations, to space stations, and a whole lot in between. Mostly Irene writes fantasy and historical fantasy including the best-selling Dragon Nimbus Series and the masterwork Merlin’s Descendants series. In other lifetimes she writes urban fantasy as P.R. Frost or Phyllis Ames, and space opera as C.F. Bentley. Later this year she ventures into Steampunk as someone else.
