Contest! Contest! Contest!

Brought to you by the Kraken Chronicles, all the news Tortuga finds fit to print!

 Holidays on Tortuga are not for the faint of heart! The competition to outshine each other at the big pirate ball, deep inside the Tortuga Grotto, is fierce. Pirates vie for the shiniest jewels, the most elaborate fabrics, the biggest feathers, blackest boots…it’s a sight to see!

In honor of the next few weeks, when the pirates are scavenging the seas, digging up their treasures…and the merchants are praying their cargo makes it so they can actually sell to the pirates. (Because once the ship reaches the harbor, pirates won’t raid it, there be honor among the residents!)

Where was I?

Oh, I’m having a contest for the next three weeks…and I’m giving away this beautiful kraken ornament!

    What color is my kraken? XD Gold, I hope.

  • AimeeKay says:

    Why he’s a nice shade of light green for Christmas, of course! And he’s got on one of those cute little Santa hats, and a matching scarf! Plus he somehow got Christmas lights in the little suckers on his tentacles, so he’s really ready to go for the holidays!

    I like your author page on facebook, and I signed up for your newsletter. Love that ornament it is sooo cute! Where’d you get it from again?

  • mbetita says:

    Allison – Gold, eh! I get it! ;-)
    AimeeKay – This wonderful store next to one of my affiliate offices (Starbucks) puts together these incredible trees and one is all ocean creature themed!

  • Becca says:

    Oooh! What color is my Kraken? I’ve always thought of it as a darkish purple that fades from black. It would hide so well in the water and look ominous as it rose from the deep to reek havoc! :)

  • mbetita says:

    Becca – Sounds nice and ominous! Good luck!

  • Ken says:

    Release, the kraken! Who wouldn’t want an ornament like that? Count me in. Did 1-4 I believe.

  • mbetita says:

    You know, Ken…does he really need releasing? I mean who realistically holds a kraken back? ;-)

  • Hellion says:

    What color is my kraken? I think he’s blue. I’m partial to blue, so he must be a really pretty blue…maybe he even glitters. Maybe he’s a Cullen Kraken.

  • Jake says:

    I think that my Kraken would indeed be either a fierce old red or a rousing blue, the cute little bugger. (Yes, I’d actually love a kraken as a pet, so cuddly!) Also, I already followed ya on Facebook, it be how I found this here shiny contest, and I just followed ye on twitter! I’m searchin’ for that final entry requirement of a blog you’re on right now, and if ye be wanting to verify my follow claims the name’s Jacob Savage on both spots!

  • mbetita says:

    Hellion – a glittery vampire kraken? Well, why not!

    Jacob – Nice to know those twitter comments are working! Fierce red…I’ve seen some lovelerlee cephalopods in red!

  • JOYE says:

    Mine is sapphire blue with gold highlights
    Love the ornament

  • Georgia Gaudette says:

    would love to have the kraken ornament – now what color is my kraken, hmmmmm I would have to say different shades of purple

  • mbetita says:

    So many loverly kraken colors!

  • AimeeKay says:

    oooo…I want an ocean themed tree!! That sounds awesome! :D

  • Jake says:

    This contest has gotten me thinking that I may find some odds and ends of hoses and wood and whip up some Clockwork Kraken, who knows?

  • Maureen says:

    Jake – That would be so cool…tentacles made of something all steel and windy…

  • jnine says:

    I think Tortuga needs a BEAD and Bauble store: kraken’s crystal cave….I could not go for the obvious…What do you think, have you got a corner shop with lots of windows to light up the bright and shinies and a good dry basement for the customers who need to stay in the shadows?

  • mbetita says:

    Great idea! I’ll have to do some thinking on a good name… And design an add… If only my brain were working better…but I’ll think of something!

  • T.t. Miller says:

    I can see my Kraken in his powerful almost glow in the dark moon color with occasional glimpses of electric blue… and you know, I agree with jnine, I would TOTALLY shop at Kraken’s Crystal Cave!!!!

  • Leisa says:

    Liked you on FB, & signing up for your newsletter. The Kraken is calling my name! You rock girl!

  • Jenny Phresh says:

    Lo and behold, I wrote a prescient BLOG ENTRY all about the Kraken…before I even spotted this giveaway. How is that for fortuitous? The Kraken does NOT care for obscenity, evidently: http://thepartypony.blogspot.com/2011/12/eldest-son-unleashes-f-bomb-and-kraken.html

  • mbetita says:

    Jenny…I love a good vulgar kraken story! I’m giving you a bonus entry! Good luck!

  • Debra Thomas says:

    The color of my Kraken…Red with bright gold eyes. They would be the first thing ya see when he is near.

    I am signed up for your newsletter, I follow you on fb and twitter. I left a comment for the Pirate Ball.

    Happy Holidays!

I got Green Aura - What Color Is Your Aura?

quizsocial.com

Your aura is green. You love life, whether it’s in the form of animals, plants, or human beings. People with green auras often take jobs that allow them to help others: doctors, teachers, and social workers, for example. You probably also love to spend time outdoors. A green aura is a sign that your needs are simple: warm breezes, good songs, and old friends.
