The Wayward Herald: Vampires Trounce Hobbits, and Enoch's Device Picks Up a Review!

Sadly, Bilbo and the dwarves have fallen down the dark goblin hole, while the vampires still sparkle in sunlight. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was outperformed at the domestic box office by The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 by around $28 million in the first three weeks. The Twilight film grossed $249,598,866 after its third weekend compared to only $221,626,882 for Bilbo and his friends, at least according to Box Office Mojo.

As if Gollum wasn't miserable enough ...
This also means I lost my wager. Quite badly, actually. But one of the blog’s loyal followers, 10,000 Days, who predicted a Twilight victory by more than $22 million, wins this blog’s first book giveaway! Well done – and the prize will go out this week.

In other news, Enoch’s Device has received it's first review in the blogosphere thanks to fellow writer and blogger Leslie Hedrick! You can read her review here. Ms. Hedrick has one of the coolest blogs for interesting medieval topics and it's always a good read.


Enoch's Device is now available on Kobo as a ebook, in addition to Amazon and Barnes & Noble.com. It is also available in paperback from Amazon and the CreateSpace eStore.

Until next week, good tidings and good day!
