Finally! I’ve been wanting to do this for months but one thing or another has kept me from it. Here it is at last!
Back in the day…
…I created a code so no one could read my super secret teenage thoughts. This is one of the pages and pages of my “code diary.”
At first I was going to simply post the above image and have you all try to crack it. But after getting several opinions, it was unanimous that this was too hard by itself. It’s difficult to see the word breaks, and it IS a lot of letters to decode. I’d probably only attract nerdy nutters like myself. While I LOVE nerdy nutters, I want this to be fun for everyone.
…should you choose to accept it: decode the following Thanksgiving themed phrase.
Each symbol represents a letter of the alphabet. As you can see, I gave you the vowels. 🙂
Email your entry to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 29th. I will select a random winner to be announced on November 30th.
…an Amazon copy of The Stone of Kings!
Why is this kind of contest related to the story? I’m sure the Irish druids had a much different set of symbols on the rare occasions when they wrote things down. But when Bresal communicates with Taichleach via magic symbols in stones, these were the symbols that I visualized.
Just go with it. 😉
I have a big announcement to make on the 30th, so be sure to look for that when you stop in to see if you’re my winner! 😀
