Look into my eyes ...

This is silly but quite clever. Then again I'm rather simple about these things - you'll undoubtedly work it out much faster than I did. Sorry it's a bit blurry, but that's the best way to view David Copperfield in my opinion.












**Warning - Don't look into his eyes for too long, or you'll fall in love with him.

This is great!! how did he know??? :)))

I'm watching tennis, missing the UK and my Sky remote... Sigh; oh for the days of the red button!
Karen said…
Ah yes, Wimbledon is here again - AND the sun is shining for a change :o) Have a big cup of tea and imagine ...
Edward said…
I would tell you how he did it, but I'd have to kill you. Or you'd have to make me a cup of tea. Up to you.
Ah yes I've seen this before! David Copperfield? Bit of an odd chap really, isn't he? Sort of makes my shiver a bit when I look at his promo professionally shot and doctored photo's!
Debs said…
That's clever. I thought it so amazing that I sent it to my aunt, who told me how it was done instantly.
HelenMHunt said…
I don't get it! I think I must be having a really stoopid day.
Bernadette said…
Very good. My indecision helped with that one, as I couldn't choose between two cards (!!) so, having been amazed, I then thought 'What if I'd picked the other one?'. Aha!
Bernadette said…
PS I can see that word count creeping up! Good on you - finishing post in sight!
Jan Jones said…
Tell your aunt she has company, Debs. Spotted it straight away.

Karen - blurry is MUCH the best way to view him. Blurry and from 500 miles away even better.
Well I was impressed.
Nic said…
I am genuinely confused. This is gonna irritate me now! Will someone be kind enough to put me out of my misery?
Lane said…
I'd tell you how it's done but magic circle oaths and all...:-)
Jean said…
That's spooky! Are the other cards more blurry? But with my eyesight, plus a couple of glasses of wine, they all look as blurry to me. So why did I choose that one? I've just dragged my husband away from Jurassic Park to have a go, and it worked for him as well.
Lorna F said…
Spooky! It's just a shame he can't spell the word 'straight' ...
Lorna F said…
And now I've got the pedantic bit out of my system, I've had another look and spotted how he did it. Oh glee.
Jean said…
Oh, yes. I've just figured it out.
No way!!!! How? Will have to work on this one. I'm sure he must be in my head; he is beautiful, isn't he!?
Amanda said…
It took me a while - I fell in love with him and I sussed it! And it's only 5.30am! Clearly going to be a good day.

By jove, look at your word count you clever lady! :-)))
Susie Vereker said…
Rather a delayed reaction on my part, but I did get it. Phew. I don't like to admit my friend Jan is cleverer than I am, but she is.

Thanks for kind and encouraging comment on my blog, Karen.

Easy!
(When you know how)
Helen P said…
It's magic - as is the upward movement of your word counter!
SpiralSkies said…
Oh my word! I might have to give up my Paul McKenna fixation and invite David Copperfield round for tea instead?

Freaky.

Might go and do it again and choose a different one!
KatW said…
I'm impressed - I got it and I can never usually work these things out. Hoorah! Although I did have to peer very closely & triple check before I was sure. So maybe not as sharp as a chef's knife but as sharp as the rather blunt knives in my knife block. Hoorah! Kat :-)
womagwriter said…
Very clever! Had to do it twice to get it, mind!
Lily Sheehan said…
I ashamed i fell for this. I showed my Dad and he put me straight lol
Karen said…
In case anyone hasn't worked it out, the bottom set of cards is completely different from the top set, so of course your card is missing ... all of them are!

I had to look it up though (blush)
Yvonne said…
Wow what a hunk! Hope you're enjoying your weekend.
Tam said…
Oh dear, I think I should have gone to Specsavers - my card didn't disappear, until I squinted a bit and realised that what I thought was the Queen of Spades in the top picture was actually the Queen of Clubs!
Damn, thought I'd beaten the system for a minute...

Good news on the word count, keep at it :-)
Karen said…
yvonne - I hope you were being ironic :o)

tam - The whole thing was a bit blurry really, which didn't help - or maybe it did!
JJ Beattie said…
Oh dear. I am getting very concerned about my stupidity. Thank you for explaining it.

100th Post!

100 posts! This time last year I was a Blogging Virgin. Now I’m a bit of a slag. It’s become the highlight of my week, both reading yours and writing mine. Which means either:

a) I don’t get out much
b) I don’t get out much, or
c) I don’t get out much

(I think it's C)

This was my first ever post. Not a single comment did it receive. I dry-heaved into my hanky for an hour and considered leaving the country. Then I cottoned on to leaving comments in order to entice readers over.

Anticipating disappointment, outrage or (worse) apathy, I was pleasantly surprised to trap some lovely Readers in my cage of blathery nonsense. I nearly threw a Comments Party, but daren't push my luck.

It’s been a real journey, as they say on bad reality TV (is there any other sort?) On the way, I’ve been given some fantastic advice from you lot, as well as from a Real Published Author and more importantly I've learned that…

Q&A with Amanda Brittany

I'm thrilled to welcome Amanda Brittany to my blog today, to talk about her debut thriller Her Last Lie. 

It's been described as 'gripping with a shocking twist' and I can confirm that it is!

(It also has an amazing cover)



Which character in Her Last Lie would you like to meet?
Hi Karen, thank you for inviting me to your blog.
I suppose feisty Roxanne is the character I’d most like to meet. She’s so determined to get to the bottom of things, and appears to be a good friend to Isla.
There are definitely a couple of characters in the book I would hope never to meet.

I know the book has several settings, which did you enjoy writing the most?
I loved writing the second part of the book set in Abisko in Sweden. I visited Abisko a couple of years back, and it was great fun bringing the cold, bleak landscape to life, and describing the way The Northern Lights swoop across the night skies.
Are any of your characters based on people you know?
No, not at all, they all sprang from my imagi…

It's (not-even-nearly) the Season to be Jolly...

I know it's only September, but my new book THE BEACHSIDE CHRISTMAS is out today. It's the final in the Beachside series and writing three books in a year means I've been pretty immersed in this world.
10 things that stand out about writing this series are...
1. The Beachside Sweet Shop gave me the perfect opportunity to make some coconut ice. I used to help make it with my grandmother growing up, and it tasted exactly as I remembered
2. Also, in the course of research, I tried eating pear-drops to see whether I’d grown to enjoy them – I haven’t. I always preferred chocolate and still do.
3. Shipley, the setting for the series, is based on Swanage in Dorset, one of my favourite places to visit, but I changed the name so I could use some fictional license when it came to naming and placing pubs and shops. 
4. I don’t have green fingers so there was plenty of research involved in writing The Beachside Flower Stall. I loved learning the meanings and symbolism of various flowers …
