Starbucks, Nooks, & Kindles. . .


Welcome to Day TWO of the Crescent Moon Press blog tour. I’m David. Lynn writes about me in Wasteland, which is soon to be released by Crescent Moon Press.

Be sure to visit all the author blogs and websites on May 24th, 25th & 26th.  Each has a quest for great prizes and a chance at the final Grand Prize: 
A Kindle or Nook (your choice) filled with a dozen books from Crescent Moon Press!

I have not encountered one of these devices called a Nook or Kindle yet, but I understand they are quite popular. If I only had time to relax and read a book…too busy searching for my Mark, Jessica Hanks.

Onto the quest …..

Today’s prize is my Fit In Anywhere Pack:

Starbucks Gift Card

Baseball cap



People magazine

Being over four hundred years old and having just been released from a long spell in sensory deprivation, I didn’t understand the first thing about fitting into this strange era. This little Fit In Anywhere Pack helped, so I figured I would share it. . .

  1. Hi Lynn! I’m just stopping by to say hi. My favorite Starbucks, by the way, is chai latte with a shot of pumpkin spice syrup. Too bad the flavor is seasonal and not year-round!

  2. I don’t go to Starbucks too often because they are a little pricey and I’m not big into coffee. But I do like their Frappuccinos- the strawberries and creme or the vanilla bean. Lookin on there site has me wanting to try there Vivanno smooties. .

  3. I know you’ve drawn a winner but for the grand prize, we have to do them all and I’m joining late. 🙂 So just for kicks and giggles, my fave drink is an oldie, the Blackberry Green Tea Frappucino. I loved it and miss it! The book sounds fantastic, good luck with it!

    • Hi, Tara. Yes. You are to do the quests on each for the grand prize. Thank you for commenting here as well! Thank you for your well wishes on the book.

  4. I “like” the Crescent Moon Press Facebook page as Demitra Giote.
    My favourite drink at Starbucks is: Mocha Frappuccino Blended Coffee.

  5. Good morning, everyone. I have drawn a winner! First, thank you, everyone, for entering.

  7. Ok I did all three things, emailed you, liked the publishers page and now….

    My favorite Startbucks drink is a Double-Chocolate Chip Frappucino! 🙂


    Good luck with the new book!!!

    Lisa 🙂

    • Thank you, Lisa. Sorry for my delayed response. I ran into some….trouble….with my mission to get Jessica Hanks. Thanks for commenting!

  8. My fav. would have to be anything with lots of extra shots and pepperment and choc. flavoring!!!!

    • Does caffeine not affect you? It is so late and you just finished a coffee with a shot? You must be part demon like me if not affected by the caffeine . . .

  9. What a great way to get comments! Hi David – my favorite Starbucks is straight up black coffee and I’m really happy when they’re brewing Sumatran

    • Finally, someone who likes black coffee. By straight up black, I’m assuming you do not add any creamer. I do like creamer on occasion…but mostly just plain.

  10. My favorite drink is a Venti Gingerbread Soy Chai. It’s very tasty. But since it’s seasonal, I get by with a Cinnamon Dolce Soy Chai instead.

    • Amy–that is quite a mouthful to say…Venti Gingerbread Soy Chai. Then again, I am quite new at this type of coffee ordering.

  11. Am I allowed to comment since David is running the blog today? 🙂
    Looks like you’re having fun, David. You like this technology thing more than you let on…

    i’m not a coffee drinker, but I love the caramel apple cider for sure. Extra caramel!

    • Hi, Lynn. Of course you’re welcome. And yes….I think I am learning more about this technology. It’s not….so bad.

    • I, too, enjoy the hot chocolate. More with whipped cream. My cohort, Gage, tells me I lost my “man card” by admitting that; however, I’m not sure I understand the idea of “man card” yet. . . .so much to learn about this era.

  12. My favorite is the Mocha Frapp. A couple weeks ago I tried the Mocha Coconut Frapp and it was delicious. You have to like Coconut!!!


  13. Hey Lynn,

    Just stopping by to say hello to you and David. Coffee is not my thing, but hand me a tall glass of Pepsi and I’m ready to go.

    Awesome prizes and great post!

    • Hello, Shannon. I do know, that while Lynn was penning this novel, she consumed an extreme amount of Diet Pepsi. I often hear her commenting about how much she likes soda.

  14. It would have to be the hot chocolate, as I don’t really like coffee. Mind you, I like coffee flavored ice cream and coffee flavored candy, but not so much with the real thing.

    I fail at coffeeness.


  15. David- you must try the Mocha with a shot of cinnamon syrup, smothered in whipped cream, and topped with lots of chocolate drizzle! And the mocha frappe (the iced version also w/cinnamon) is to die for.

      • I treated myself to just this Friday. The lady forgot the whipped cream AND the chocolate… I did not enjoy my expensive treat as much as I had anticipated. 🙁 YES! Must have the chocolate, too!!!

    • Dunkin Donuts. . . I have not tried their coffee yet. But you like it more than Starbucks. That is saying something, indeed!

  16. Mmm…Starbuck’s! I usually make my own at home, but when I venture out, I order a venti sugar-free skinny vanilla latte. I could drink five of those in a row. *GLUG* 🙂

    • Hello, Kendall. Please, give my regards to Gavin. I have not forgotten our….enlightening interview. You can make Starbucks coffee at your home?

    • I, too, enjoy the plain, black coffee. Evidently it’s not as “in” –or so I’m told. But like I refused to cut my hair to “fit in” I will stick with my boring coffee.

  17. My favorite Starbucks drink is the Spiced Apple Cider they have in the fall…any other time, I usually get one of their teas!

  18. I don’t get starbucks very often since there isn’t one in my town, but I love a mocha with a shot of espresso! I liked the facebook page, too. 🙂

    • Thanks, Theresa. I once heard a man order extra shots of espresso. He must need extra energy to endure his day.

  19. I love the mocha frappacino most of the time, but I also love the Awake tea latte with a single tea bag!

    • Hello, Lisa. I have once tried something called a Frappacino at Starbucks, but, call me old fashioned, I rather like just black coffee. 🙂 I might venture a try with the teas, though.

  20. My favorite Starbucks drink is ONLY available at the Starbucks in Meriden, CT.
    1/2 decaf iced coffee, venti, 2% milk, 4 pumps of CD (that’s cinnamon dolce for the uninitiated) in a double hot cup.
    My Starbucks is the only one, that I know of, in the country that has decaf iced coffee available 24/7/365.
