Repurposed Cigarette Case (Do Not Tell Oliver!)

I hate cigarettes. The smell of the things leaves me nauseated. So why am I sharing anything that has to do with cancer on a stick? Because of the following reasons:
-     I’m quite enchanted by A Conversation with Oliver. Read my review.
-     And to celebrate his first novella, B. R. Marsten (aka The Narrator) is giving away a cigarette case and a $10 Amazon gift card. I was surfing around, trying to figure out what I would do with the case if I actually won, when I ran into an Upcycled Steampunk Cigarette Case.
*Yep, don’t tell Oliver. But if I win the giveaway, I’m totally disemboweling an old clock and going all steampunk on the case. If I don’t, I suspect I will find a reason to revisit Driven by Steam*.

There is more…

Rhissanna joined the celebration. She is giving away an Oliver doll. The hit man has not reached his murderous finish yet, but I wanted to show you my favorite picture of the process. Here is Oliver all creepy, bald, with an amazing shirt collar and without pants *giggles and freaky chuckles*:
And because The Narrator likes to go all the way, he has also made A Conversation with Oliver free until May 22nd, over at Amazon. I’ve already snatched my copy and delighted in it, too. Now is your turn, my Wicked Luvs. *wink, bang, wink*

  1. Yay! How fun. I was just thinking I needed another book to read... so you have perfect timing! =D
    And thank you to B.R. Marsten for gifting us all with this story. <3

    1. I'm so glad Oliver has provided. He seems to be quite good at giving people exactly what they need.

  2. Well, Oliver does look a little like a penis in a shirt in that photo. But I didn't say that, and I'll deny it under interrogation.This is really sweet of you to support Mr N, as he launches his first book onto the Sea of Stories. I hope it persuades him to write more of Mr Tunstall and his 'recession-proof' occupation.

    The steampunk case is really something! I wonder if it would hold polite visiting cards, for when people call for tea?

    ( Oliver has pants now. And socks. )

    1. Do reveal his pants and socks :) Will he have two pairs of socks (black and white?) as to wear fresh every time?:)) ok, just kidding.

    3. Red socks? Oh my goodness, I think I just whimpered a bit.

    4. Red socks! Of course, he couldn't have had any other!

    5. Exactly! They match the red lining in his jacket...

  3. I will grab a copy when I have access to shopping websites at home, thanks for reminding!
    Oliver looks creepy without face... I adore small details Rhissanna puts on her doll's clothing - like that collar too.
    The steampunk cigarette case will be a nice and stylish addition to your accessories! Good luck with winning it Magaly.

    2. I know what you mean about the details, Hindustanka. I love the same things about Rhissanna's work. I've spent a long time playing with AlmaMia's little socks and her new perfect skirt!

  5. This is another wonderful bit of support, Magaly. You and the rest of the Blogdom have made writing and publishing more a mole-hill than the Mountain I feared ahead of me. Everyone goes out of their way to help one another along. It's not a small thing. It's transformed how I look at writing. I can still remember the terrible days when getting a writing project "out there" meant rejection letters and agents laughing at you. And yet, here we all are, helping one another, cheering one another on. So thank you for the help, the advice and the blog posts! Now finish your "Rebels with a shambling cause." I hate waiting for the next installment of anything!

    1. I think that by the time you come up with your full length novel, agents will be giggling with delight. Seemingly impossible mountains turning into an enjoyable hills when we have company, especially when the company likes to talk about the trip and is enjoying the process, too.

      I shall go away and do the shambling thing... ;-D

  6. I just finished Oliver's story... I couldn't put it down and laughed or smiled throughout the entire book. Oliver has his spot secured in the strange little place in my heart I have reserved for hit men (and women), etc. <3
    Thank you so much for pointing the way to this fabulous story! =D

    XOXO
