Ash and Puck, come to life (sort of)

I'm back from the Iron Knight signing.

It was great! Thanks to everyone who came, especially those who drove so far to see me. It was wonderful meeting you all.



But, the coolest part of the signing, were these guys.
















I knew there would be life-sized figures of Ash and Puck at the signing, but it was still pretty awesome to walk in and see them staring at you. Or rather, at each other. (Puck seems to be giving Ash the evil eye.)


Here are a couple more pics.









Puck.





















Ash.


















Me with the boys. ^__^







There were also goodie bags with a never before seen picture of Ash, Meghan, and Puck together. I got to take home the big poster of them. *happy*






I love this pic.














So where are the boys now, you wonder? Don't worry, they're safely in the corner of my office, where they shall remain forevermore, my preciousssssssssssssssss.

  5. Awww. Those are cute. I've been trying to stay away from all the Twitter/internet posts about the new book since I just started The Iron Daughter, but LOVE the life-sizes of Puck and Ash.

  6. HAHAHA awesome! Some day I want my characters to have life sized cardboard cut outs! I've been in love with them since the first time I saw The Elvira Beer cutout in my supermarket when i was like 5

  7. Oh, I adore that poster with all of them! That is gorgeous.... *dies*

    I can't wait to read about all the new characters you'll be writing about in the next Iron Fey series with Ethan! An older Ethan is hard to comprehend right now, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.

  14. Oh.My.Ash! <3!!! Someone could make a FORTUNE if they sold those. I already have Edward in my closet...I'm pretty sure hubby wouldn't mind if Ash came to live w/us too. The poster is pretty sweet too. ;)

  19. I would loooove a cardboard cut out of Puck standing in my bedroom! So jealous. Love the cut out of Ash and the poster of them with Meghan. They should all just be sold in bookstores everywhere! *hint hint*

    ReplyDelete
  20. awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I gotta say, while I'm team Ash all the way they're both incredibly hot.... even if they are 2D and on cardboard... I would still kidnap them ... I wonder how they would like the veiw from inside my closet?
    *faints of the amazingness*

    How awesome is all of that?!!!

    Julie... you really NEED to come to Toronto for a book-signing!!!! WE love you up here!!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love, love your books. Cant wait for a movie. I picked one up and fell in love and shared them with my sister and she loves them too and we've been telling everyone about your books. We all want a movie, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Forget Toronto, come to Orlando!!! I just finished Iron King, and I won't be getting the next ones for about another week (They're borrowed library books). Ever since I discovered your books a month ago, I have been desperate to get them! You are a one-of-a-kind writer, Julie, and I love your books! Now, a question... are you a Team Puck (like me!!) or a Team Ash (ironically, just like this mean girl in my school who hates me!)? I hope you will answer. Thanks so much, Julie, for giving me a way to escape the hectic life of a freshman!
    P.S. I really wish I could've gone to the book signing, seeing as my youth group and I were about 2 miles from you the entire time!

  25. a movie would be perfect! Ash will always love the series and Fey!! *-*

  26. love the guys and pictures!

  27. I loved the Iron Knight (I just tore through the book yesterday and today, it was so good that I really wish there was another one afterward telling about what happened!) and I can't wait for your next series and Ethan's trilogy. And I really wish there was a "One Year Later" sort of thing so that we could see how Ash and Meghan and possibly Kierran turned out and if Ash actually aged. But it was so good and awesome that I can't even put it into words!

    ReplyDelete
  28. *dies* That's amazing. They look great. But is Ash wearing...jeans?
    I love that never-before-seen picture of the trio, but my thoughts went straight to that New Moon movie poster, unfortunately. Totally mood-ruining. ><
    Glad you loved the event! Are there, by any chance, any good-bags left that you'll be giving away? *hint hint*

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love it!!! I wanna this in my bedroom ^_^

    Greetings from Venezuela xD

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks everyone! Glad you like them (I like to think Ash is glamoured as a human, that's why he's in jeans, lol). But try not to post any spoilers of The Iron Knight for the people who haven't read it yet. Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh, I would love to see these books turned into movies! If they came out anything like they did in my head, they would be a million times better than Twilight and Harry Potter combined :) the Iron Knight was AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Not digging Ash's jeans. Makes him seem too mortal. But that is probably the coolest thing ever to have giant cutouts of your characters!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I say you should come to toronto too! Canada needs some Iron Knight Action! :P lol
    haha I didnt even notice Ash wearing jeans. I was too busy wishing I could have come...if only I had a private jet...*sighs from lack of ash-ness*

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am totally in love with Puck. He is MINE, MINE, MINE!!!!!!!! I love him! I love Ash too, but Puck is so much better looking. And Puck is so much funnier. And just all around better. I just finished Iron King, and it was awesome. Btw, Ash in jeans? What??? Even Puck is in faerie clothes! I don't get it.
    P.S. GO TEAM PUCK!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, Julie, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. You had me crying tears of anguish at the end of The Iron Queen and tears of joy and gratitude at the end of The Iron Knight. This book is--was--always will be one of the greatest creations known to the art of writing. You are amazing. It takes A LOT to get in my top favorites. You are right up there next to The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. You rule! I'm still on the verge of tears.... (P.S.--their son's name is still going to be Kierran, right? Because my name is Kyra and I am obsessed with variations of my name, male and female: Kiera, Kirra, Kirrin, Kierran....)

  36. Just finished The Iron Knight. I literally read it cover-to-cover. LITERALLY. Well, everything except the copyrights. (Who reads those?) It kind of puts it all in perspective, doesn't it? hehehehehe "And to think, I lost you that day in the forest and didn't even know what I was chasing." .... *laughs evilly* Luv u, J.K.!

  40. The iron knight was an amazing book. To keep going with the theme of evil teasers for those of you who have not finished the book here is a teaser: I saw those glowing eyes at the trunk of the tree and said I am happy that you finally found peace.

  41. Team Ash! i love the pics

    ReplyDelete

  43. I just ant you to know the first thing i do when i get home from school every afternoon is come here. i am so totally obssessed with your books its not even funny! you're an awesome writer!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I just signed up for NaNo. O_O AHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I put you as one of the author who inspired me to write. You're actually the first one on the list. I was writing random, awful stuff before you, but you and your talk of NaNo is what convinced me to get off my lazy butt! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I signed up for NaNo and I had NaNo NIGHTMARES last night!!!!!! There was a really stupid one where you had to just write random stuff and every 175th word you would use in your NaNo WriMo. It sounds stupid but in the dream it was FRIGHTENING!!!! It turns out, MY SISTER HAD NIGHTMARES TOO. O_O They're so draining....I've never been this tired....I put tap water in my mug this morning when I was trying to make caffeinated tea....And I have to walk to school....And write an essay on Hiroshima....And do my NaNo WriMo. Somebody just kill me....

  46. First, I WISH I COULD BE THERE!!
    Second, That looks so cool!
    And Third, I love how it's set up in front of the "Self Improvement" section. Shouldn't it be where the Teen section is?

    ReplyDelete
  47. you know, im not just saying this cause im obsessed with the series, but honestly, if you get a good company to make this a movie, it would be just SUCH a good movie. kinda like narnia,BUT SOOO MUCH BETTER!! really, they make some really dumb movies now a days...but this series has just such an amazing plot, it would really be great....and lets say if i was someone who never read the series, and saw a trailor for this if they had a movie, I WOULD BE LIKE I GOTTA READ THEM NOW!! really. :)

  48. I finished the book about a week ago..... AMAZING!!! Thanks Julie for writing me my addiction! (BTW that's Puck) And I loved the books soooo much that I painted my door with Team Puck and other Iron Fey stuff... The only thing I didn't like (the ONLY thing) is Puck's end. GIVE HIM TO ME!!! You should write him a separate ending that is like a chapter long....

    ReplyDelete
  49. They look nothing like the charactors in my head. :( i love the books, theyre my not so secret addiction. Puck looks too clean and pristene. Ash needs darker hair and lighter eyes, with maybe sharper features. But otherwise, i love it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Drop dead gorgeous..I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to steal them, Julie!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Does anyone know the name of the model that plays Ash? I LOVE them! :-D

    ReplyDelete
  52. I AM JUST SEEING THIS NOW! (College hasn't let me read any blogs) AND THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER :) Looks like it was a blast :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Whoa, do they ever look hot! But i think Puck's outfit is too format (where are his hoodie and leather boots?" and Ash is too causal (his jeans are a little un-faery)...but all in all, love them!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Grrrrrr!!!! no! thats not puck!! it caaaaant be!! that puck isnt even cute! puck has red hair and hes not a freaking business guy seriously do you think the Summer Court's jester would be wearing that?! i am sooo angry!! (but i still looooove these books) TEAM PUCK FOREVER!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh my. I'd love to have been at the signing. The Iron Fey truly got to me, it was so not like the normal fairy tales. I loved the strength Meghan gains along the way and how every character matures. Overall it was a great.
    One little question... How long does it take you to write a book?

    ReplyDelete
  56. IF PUCK WAS REAL N SIGLE ID CUT MEGHAN OUT! lol
