The Magic Finger - Giveaway!

There are many a days I wish I had a magic finger. Not just so I could connect to those hard to reach itches or use it to grab the toys my daughter manages to drop behind the couch. For the most part I would use that magic finger to right some wrongs in this world. We all have our beliefs and passions. This giveaway has one a few simple rules (see below).


If you have ever read the book The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl you are familiar with the story. If not, here is a brief logline of the story. The Gregg family loves hunting, but their eight-year-old neighbor can't stand it. After countless pleas for them to stop are ignored, she has no other choice -- she has to put her magic finger on them. Now the Greggs are a family of birds, and like it or not, they're going to find out how it feels to be on the other end of the gun.

Roald Dahl is one of my biggest writing influences and I love his books. I simply want to celebrate a great writer and show my appreciation to all amazing Asylum readers and followers. A thank you for sticking in there with me. 




Okay, let's get down to the rules. 1) Follow this blog (if not already following). 2) Tweet about it (if you tweet) or you can shout it out loud if you want. 3) AND the most important of all - comment on what you would do if you had a magic finger. 

This contest is limited to the US residents. Deadline is April 12th, 2011, Midnight. The winner will be picked at random by my trusty robot assistant and announced end of next week.

  2. Great contest idea. I love Roald Dahl too -- never read The Magic Finger though.

    I'm already a follower. I'm tweeting this at @onbeyondwords

    If I had a magic finger, I'd create a trusty robot assistant for myself.

  3. Well naturally, I would touch every single member of Write Club so that we'd all sell our books at auction and make gazillions of dollars.

    PS - I heard Dahl and he's a huge influence for me too.

  8. If I had a magic finger it would shoot lasers, so I can battle my arch nemisis with ease. Or possibly shoot chocolate out the tip because I always need a steady supply :)
