One Year Adventure Novel--And More About the Giveaway

Recently (yesterday, in fact), I started the OYAN on my father's recommendation. For those of you who don't know (I think I mentioned this before), I started OYAN once, only for it to flop about a quarter of the way through.

So that means that Sadaar is on hold for the duration of OYAN--which might not be long, at the blistering speed I'm going.

A little bit on OYAN; It's a curriculum made especially for those teens who want to write an adventure novel--whether it be from pirates to fantasy. Daniel Schwabauer, an award winning author and maker of OYAN, is a fantastic speaker, especially when it comes to writing. If I ever get close to his experience in writing, I'd be published, without a doubt. So anyway, the sole purpose of OYAN is to get you to write an adventure novel--in one school year.


Besides this, I'd like to announce that I will be gone--again. I'm going to my aunt's wedding. :) So hang on tight! After this, and after a reunion with distant relatives and stuff, I will finally have time to do the giveaway!

Relating to this, no one has guessed what I'm going to give away yet. Here's what has been guessed and what clues I have given out;

THE CLUES

-It is has to do with Tolkien
-It is literally golden
-It is book(s)


THE GUESSES

-It is NOT "The Hobbit: Vintage Gold Hardcover".
-It is PROBABLY NOT Keeneye's. XD
-It is NOT "The Tolkien Encyclopedia Golden Cover".
-But it IS something that has "All That is Gold Does Not Glitter" poem in it.


Here's what you need to do;
-Name a SPECIFIC edition of the book that you're guessing
-You only have three guesses
-If you guess correctly--edition and everything--you will get an extra entry into the giveaway. :)

Guess away!

Oh man Jake...you make this hard on a fellow! I don't even know what to guess :( I feel near insanity with thinking about the options! And I don't even know what range you're talking about.
