Where Is The Kraken?

 Kraken Contest!

New blog, new day…new CONTEST!

Today, let’s celebrate the launching of the new ship…errr….blog PiratePunk!

Okay, let’s talk… CONTEST!

A funny thing happened between my book’s journey from e-book to print book.

My Kraken tentacle disappeared. (These things happen when dealing with the real world.)

So, making the best of a sad situation, I put it to you… Where did the Kraken go?

1)      He’s in Scotland, wooing Nessie

2)      He’s outside the Mines of Moria at Gandalf’s request, fighting off the menace in the waters

3)      Sharing rum with the monster in the lake at Hogwarts

4)      ? Your best guess?

Contest ends on May 31st, 2011…at midnight, Pacific Standard Time. I will announce the winner on June 1st, 2011.

Now, let’s see some options!


  1. I found the Kraken nesting in a long forgotten corner of my bedroom. It was a long overdue spring cleaning that uncovered him. I almost didn’t recognize him at first as he was in disguise with a knitting project, some orphaned socks and a very large dust bunny.

  2. BTW – June 1st is my Birthday in case you decided to give me a present. 😉

  3. Hi Maureen I misses you the past couple of days. I have been so busy. My house looked like the Kraken may have attacked yesterday I spent the entire day cleaning up. Today I am trying to be as still as possible and SSSSSHHHHH we might go see POTC don’t tell him.

  4. I still have to do the dinner tonight Maureen so i may have to beg more assistance from the Kraken and all those wonderfully useful tentacles it makes prep work simple

  5. I would safely say that the Kraken did go to Scotland to woo Nessie, but having been spurned by her he moved on. He went in search of Captain Sparrow without success. from there he moved into my house and created havoc, but i ran him off with my killer bunny rabbit.
    So all in all, having struck out he went to the keys off Florida to drink margaritas with Jimmy Buffett. He was a closet parrot head. shhhhhhh, don’t tell anyone!


  6. Ah, you’re all wrong, this just in, a postcard from Alaska. Says not to bother looking for him. He’s gone incognito.

  7. Ella – I always suspected this. He had a thing for Hawaiian shirts…

    Zrinka – Alaska!? Why the hell didn’t he take me along?

    My kitty is chasing him right now they started out as enemies then my kitty took off a tentacle and established his dominance. now they are the best of friends especially after they learned they had so much in common; like a love of fish, attacking innocent passer byes, an obsession with the fish in the tank, hiding in dark places and strangest of all they both love water finally the fact that they both like to trip me while I am cooking.

  9. Amanda Woodward

    the thing with the water was my first clue that my cat may not be normal
    and the tripping sends them both into fits of laughter

  10. Maureen…I think the kraken went on a much needed vacation. He’s gotten alot of attention recently and needed a rest. I’m thinking he has very exotic tastes…maybe Tahiti or Thailand.

  11. I think the Krakken took a vacation and is chilling out on a deserted island with a couple cases of rum, resting up his tentacles!

  12. I think the Kraken has stayed in the area where the ice cave/castle stood. As hot as its been that seems like the best spot to relax and stay cool! Loved the book Maureen and can’t wait for the next one!

    the Kracken was very busy at the mines of moria and then he had a brief journey to chase after captain jack sparrow . After that he was so tired he has decide to take in the night life on Bourbon st in New orleans for a vacation. I hear he was even seen getting a cruise ticket to the bahama after all one can’t do what one normally does on vacation otherwise its not a vacation so he’s going to ride in style lol
