I’m playing at Nine Naughty Novelists
Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Today, I’m talking again about my Viking book at Nine Naughty Novelists. Remember, any comment you post there counts as an entry in the Authors After Dark Grab Bag Contest. Remember, I also have two $25.00 gift certificates up for grabs in the Promo Ho Contest! Both those contests end next week! Details about both can be found on my Contest Page.

And just so you have a reason to post a comment here, today… Did you know…?

Alaska has the highest percentage of people who walk to work.
~from Snapple Real Facts

That seems just plain wierd to me given the fact it can get pretty damn nippy up there. Wonder why that is…

    Probably goes with the fact that Minneapolis has one of the largest number of people who bike to work. You wouldn’t think so given our winters, but the city is pretty proud of it.

    Maybe they feel safer walking on the slippery ice & snow than they do driving on it?

    Maybe because of so many small towns and it’s hard to get the car started at twenty below.

    could be they live so close to where they work it doesn’t make sense to drive.

    I only live in Ontario Canada and don’t walk outside much in the middle of winter!

    I want to visit Alaska…. Australia never gets particularly cold especially where I am, not brrrr cold. That is a pretty neat fact, be lots of fresh air there with no morning traffic congestion.

    interesting fact. I think it is because they live close to where they work at. Maybe it is because of gas prices in Alaska.

    That’s a weird Alaskan fact for sure–not something I would have guessed!
