This week we're giving away goodies, celebrating the release of our books. This is good timing for me because Wanderlust (Jax 2) is coming out next month. If you haven't already read Grimspace, this is your chance to acquire a copy before the next book comes out.
Anyway, I love this website. It has tech-goodies that could come directly from Jax's world. Here are five things from that site that I totally don't need and I'd love to have.
OHSO Pocket Toothbrush
"Toothpaste is stored in the handle for safekeeping and the window shows you how much paste is in the chamber. Turn the knob clockwise and paste is dispensed though the rubber nozzle on the bristle head. Tilt down and paste is delivered directly to the bristles."
You can also refill it from any tube. Doesn't it look totally future cool? Plus, no more worries about leakage in your bag while traveling.
Pirate vs Ninja Batteries
I don't know if I could pick, though. Regarding the battle between pirates vs ninjas, I admit it -- I've waffled. So what if I buy a pack of each... and power the remote with... both? Will there be a micro-nuclear explosion fueled by the age-old conflict and then my whole house will be sucked into an alternate dimension where everyone is either a pirate or a ninja? I say it's worth $2.99 a pack to find out!
USB Hidden Flash Drive Watch
"Since you are probably the clever type, we suspect you could easily find many places to hide a small USB flash drive. Some of these hiding spots may be perfectly legit, but others might just be too clever for your own good. So, to protect you from yourself we'd like to introduce a watch with the ideal hiding spot already built-in. This watch features an ample 4GB capacity USB flash drive that slips neatly into the watch case."
A 4G (that's huge!) flash drive, cunningly hidden. Isn't that utterly awesome? It's just what a writer needs. I would feel totally like a secret agent walking around with all my books clipped to my wrist.
"The spork of the gods! Every mythic hero normally has an equally mythic weapon. Zeus had his thunderbolts. Thor had his hammer, Mjolnir. King Arthur had his Excalibur. Frodo and Bilbo had their Sting. Rhydderch Hael had his Dyrnwyn. King Kong had his bananas…you get the idea. It's time for you to join the ranks of the heroes and heroines of lore as you wield your own legendary weapon in your battle against a very powerful foe: hunger."
Sporks are just awesome geekery, and to make one out of titanium? Genius.
Finally, last but not least... here's the one I really covet.
"We've glued two random hardcover books together, drilled out several hundred pages, and boom-shanka! You've got the perfect hiding space for nearly 80 cubic inches of stuff. Place these books crammed full of treasure on your bookshelf, and nobody will be the wiser."
I want this soooo bad. Isn't it the coolest hiding place you've ever seen? And with the amount of books we have in the house, this would totally blend right in. No more losing important stuff!
So that's a glimpse into what I covet. Not diamonds, not expensive clothes. Geek-tech. If you were thinking, huh, I know Ann's birthday is coming up next month, but what on earth do I get her... well, wonder no more.Any of those items would tickle me pink (are you reading this, dear husband?) and at very reasonable prices.
So what stuff do you not need but you'd totally love to have? Tell me what you long for and I'll pick a couple of you to receive copies of Grimspace.
