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. . .

Here’s how to enter

1.  Email Lynn ( the answer to this question:  How long was I in sensory deprivation? Here’s a hint –>The answer is HERE. **don’t leave the answer in the comments** Doing this earns you one entry in the grand prize drawing and one entry in today’s drawing.

2.  For an additional TWO entries into today’s drawing, click HERE and “like” the Crescent Moon Press Facebook page.

3.  For an additional THREE entries into today’s drawing, leave a comment here telling me what your favorite Starbucks drink is.

Now, onto your next stop with Rachel Firasek


I will draw the winner tonight and post it in the comments by tomorow, so you might want to choose the subscribe to comments or remember to check back to see if you’re the winner.

Best of luck on all the quests.

  1. Lindsay says:

    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.

  2. Lisa Richardson says:

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

    • DAVID says:

      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.

  3. Ciara Knight says:

    My favorite drink is the Punpkin Spice Lattee. It’s seasonal of course but I usually drink skinny lattees. 🙂 I already Like Crescent Moon Press.

  4. Theresa says:

    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. 🙂

    • DAVID says:

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

  5. Jill W says:

    Hands down, the Mocha Light Frappuccino! Boy, I wish I had one now! 🙂

  6. Victoria Goldy-Rhodes says:

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

  7. Rylee says:

    My favorite is the Caffe Vanilla Frappucino

  8. JeanP says:

    Mocha Frappacino is my absolute favorite.

  9. wyndwhisper says:

    i like just a regular coffee. i know that is boring but i like coffee flavored coffee.

    • DAVID says:

      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.

  10. Kendall Grey says:

    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* 🙂

    • DAVID says:

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

  11. Mocha Frapp all the way, baby!!

  12. lbdiamond says:

    I like Dunkin Donuts iced coffee. 😉

    Nice quest, David. Good luck to the participants!

    Looking forward to reading your book, Lynn.

    • DAVID says:

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

  13. Tricia says:

    My favorite Starbucks drink is: Medium Vanilla Iced Mocha.

  14. Calisa Rhose says:

    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.

    • DAVID says:

      Calisa, I do think I would rather enjoy the whipped cream and cinnamon. But with chocolate, too?

      • Calisa Rhose says:

        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!!!

  15. Calisa Rhose says:

    Um I forgot to follow. 😉

  16. Annie K. Griggs says:

    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.


  17. Anne says:

    The orange mango smoothie is my favorite drink (not a coffee drinker).

  18. Shannon Eckrich says:

    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!

    • DAVID says:

      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.

  19. Susan Hazzard says:

    My Favorite Starbucks is the Vente Hot Chocolate with wonderful whipped cream. Yum!!!

  20. Judy Cox says:

    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!!!


  21. tanya reimer says:

    Oh, I’m a hot chocolate type of gal!

    • DAVID says:

      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.

  22. Lita says:

    I am a tea person so I try whatever green tea they have available.

  23. Alicia Coleman says:

    My favorite Starbucks drink is a Moca Frappacino. Enjoying the tour.

  24. Michelle says:

    No caffiene here, I love the salted caramel hot chocolate. Nice site BTW. 🙂

  25. I’m a huge fan of the peppermint cocoa that they have during the holidays. It just doesn’t seem like the holidays without it.

    Best Wishes,
    Beth Oliver

  26. MaryC says:

    I love the Zen green tea.

  27. Lynn Rush says:

    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!

    • DAVID says:

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

  28. Amy says:

    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.

    • DAVID says:

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

  29. Kate says:

    My favourite drink at Starbucks is: Caramel Frappuccino Light Blend

    Which i would quite happily share with David any day

  30. Liked the Crescent Moon Press on facebook.
    Strawberry Vivanno Smoothie is my favorite drink.

  31. Brinda says:

    Caramel Macchiato is the bomb.

  32. MonaKarel says:

    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

    • DAVID says:

      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.

  33. katjameson says:

    Mocha light frappachino with an add shot, yummy, actually I just finished one. They make me happy and easier to live with =)

    • DAVID says:

      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 . . .

  34. Hi Lynn, I always order a skinny latte with sugar free caramel flavor. It’s yummy! Having great fun here.

  35. Stephanie Van Winkle says:

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

  36. Lisa Kessler says:

    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 🙂

    • DAVID says:

    • DAVID says:

  42. Jessica B. says:

    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. .

  43. Jessica B. says:

    I liked the cresent moon facebook page.

  44. 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!

  45. My favorite starbucks drink is strawberry and cream.
    Liked CMP facebook page.
