Interactive, Virtual Jigsaw Puzzle of ‘Trial Run’

I thought you’d enjoy something a little different. It’s a “virtual” jigsaw puzzle! You can put it together right here on my blog, or you can click this link to play it at This 50-piece puzzle features a quote from “Double Edge,” the free ebook prequel to Trial Run (Trial Run is my techno-thriller that releases August 4, 2015, from Revell.)

Time yourself and post a comment telling me how long it took you to complete the puzzle. So far, the fastest anyone has completed it is 6 minutes. Can you beat Mike, our current leader?

Also, let me know whether you like doing the puzzle — if so, I’ll post a new one every week and will make them progressively more difficult!

Ready… set… GO!

    I did it in 8 minutes and 23 seconds. This was after a long and trying (with good points in there too) day. I’d like to do another when I’m fresh. I like jigsaw puzzles. They help me keep my brain active.

    I guess puzzles aren’t my thing . . . 12:42! But I enjoyed the puzzle, and the quote is one of my favorites!

    7:44 for me–am an “older” lady but still do puzzles fairly often—I am not “fast” but usually get the job done!!!

    So, okay – I get the tortoise prize of 17:32…but I enjoyed it! In my defense, I am in the middle of a dizzying job and relocation transition, and it was a nice break. It did go a lot faster when I realized I could make the window larger! Don’t feel the need to make the next one a lot more difficult, Davis!
