PROGRAM: [Across Lite]
Word is on the street that these Themeless Mondays are some of your favorite puzzles. I get emails all the time that thank me for giving you solvers something hard to chew on in the beginning of the week, at a time when most other markets run easy puzzles. Well, the BEQ hears you and the BEQ abides. Because, let's face it, themelesses are a blast to make.
Now, for those who've been paying attention, they'll notice the calendar says June and therefore it's time for another bonus themeless drive month. Every six months I make an appeal for you to hit up the tip jar. So, for all who are able to contribute $10 between now and July 2nd, I'll send a never before published Sunday sized themeless puzzle as a thank you. That's a 21x21, practically twice the size of these regular Themeless Mondays. Take a look at this baby and tell me your mouth isn't watering when you look at it. I mean, my mouth is watering right now as I'm typing this. Sure, I'm looking at the veggie egg white omelet I'm going to have for breakfast once this post is up. But that doesn't mean your mouth isn't watering when you're looking at that grid.
The site shall always remain free, and you can ignore this appeal if you wish. Just think of this bonus puzzle my way of scratching your back, if you can scratch mine. Lord knows I've got this itch right down in the dead center of the back. Just simply cannot get to it. Even when I'm holding a backscratcher. It's the darnedest thing.
One more come-on for this month's drive: I will send a copy of my latest book "Sex, Drugs & Rock 'n' Roll Crosswords" to one randomly selected donor. So that's one never-before published 21x themeless puzzle and possibly my latest book for $10. What are you waiting for?
Oh yeah, you still have another way to win "Sex, Drugs ..." as there's still three more days to enter the latest contest. We've obliterated the record for number of entries in a BEQ contest. Let's run up the score a bit shall we? Get your friends to enter.
Share the puzzle. Hit up the tip jar. Enter the contest. New one on Thursday.
