Sekrit Series Final Hint plus Giveaway


Well, this is it.


The final hint.


The last clue before the reveal of the Super Sekrit Series on October 2nd.


And to celebrate, this week's hint also comes with a contest/giveaway.  The prize?  Three, yes three, signed copies of THE IRON  TRAITOR are up for grabs, as seen below.






But, there is also the GRAND PRIZE, which only one lucky person will receive.  In addition to a signed copy of THE IRON TRAITOR, the grand prize winner will also receive a special something not pictured here.  But if you want a hint, it is small, cute, and made of clay.


Kind of like these.  But NOT these.  These guys have already gone to their new homes:







But something very similar.  (All figurines are handmade my myself, baked until hard, and sealed with protective gloss. Only their eyes and mouths are painted, the rest is colored polymer clay.) 


RULES

Rules are simple.  To be entered in the contest, you just have to guess what you think the Sekrit Series is about and leave your guess in the comments.  You don't have to be right, or even close.  All you have to do is leave your best guess, and you'll be entered to win one of three signed Iron Traitors.  If you want to guess that the series is about flying pink panda bears who fight crime in yellow spandex, go right ahead.  You'll still be entered to win.


However, the GRAND PRIZE will go to the guess that is closest to being right.  It's not enough to say that the series is about XWY creature/person/thing.  The more you can correctly guess about the series--setting, plot, characters, names, ect.--the better your chances of winning. 


The giveaway will run for only a week, until October 1st.  On October 2nd, be sure to check back for the Grand Reveal of the Sekrit Series, and to see whose guess was the closest.


And yes, we will make it international.



SO, now that you know what to do, shall we go on to the final hint?  The last four clues were as follows:  (Photos courtesy of YA Interrobang. )










Got those?  Ready for the last clue?  Okay....


Here it is:


 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 

Got it?  Go forth, then, and GUESS.  Guess, and then RT so that others may guess, too.  And I'll see you back here on the 2nd for the grand reveal (finally!) of the Super Sekrit series.

  1. okay okay okay. SO!
    A secret organization looking for Selkies (I got the hint from "Sekret") They need to find dragon scales for something? Or Dragon scales are found on the shoreline and this surfer finds it and is lead to a dragon- or a Selkie, and helps the dragon-or Selkie and..... And there's a secret organization of Dragon slayers... and @___@. Selkies and Dragons and Scales and hot surfers! hahahahahahhaa That's all I got.... OTL

  2. I think super sekrit has something to do with ten people, unfair law, dragons, a secret organization and DESTINY... Lol I just saw this today... Why??? :(

    ReplyDelete
  3. Damn... so it's not about flying pink panda bears who fight crime in yellow spandex? My hopes and dreams have been dashed, my friend. (;

    I'll be pretty crappy about guessing things, so don't laugh, 'kay? Cool. Here we go:

    I see the saint and I think old mythology of some sort-- maybe a 'secret organisation' of people who fight mythological creatures? I see the scales and I thought at once of the whole idea of being judged, kind of like in Egyptian mythology when their heart (or soul or whatever it is) is being weighed to decide whether they are worthy or something. Though the saint pictured above seems more roman/catholic than exotic, like Egyptian gods. Hang ten has something to do with surfing (Bless you, Google) which means that the setting will be somewhere near the ocean. I am so, so tempted to list about a gazillion possible character names right now, but considering that would possibly be cheating, I'll opt for a few that pop into my head. George, Aurora, Silva, Victoria, and Luna.

    Thanks for making the giveaway international! (:

  4. A secret church organization with ten badass people whose destiny is to fight against evil to even the scale on the side of good :

    ReplyDelete
  5. mmm, scales, St. George fought with a Dragon and the constellation is Draco......so something related with Dragons.
    Thanks for the Giveaway!!!!

  6. It's about a secret monastry where the members use the constellations to solve crimes and bring criminals to justice.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I think it's something with a secrit organization called st.George who kidnaps dragons (every dragon is also an orion in the zodiac) and some surf people try to save the dragons from them when they saw the organization kidnap there legendary dragon
    (I don't know if this shows who i am but on twitter am i @ElinexSpetter )

  8. Hmm... I'm still going to go with a water creature. Like mermaids or sirens that are in a secret organization to keep the balance between good and evil. And perhaps fight dragons. Or maybe not even fight the dragons but are instead friends with them. Oooh! Fighting FOR the dragons instead?? haha I have no idea but I'm super excited to find out about this series!! Thanks so much for the Giveaway!

  9. A underwater tribe of water dragons?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Okay, I'm going with literalism (is that how you say it? no idea) here. So, ten creatures (people...?) are hanged, which tips the scales (possibly of power or creates some sort of imbalance in the book world) thus leading to the creation of two secret organizations of dragon slayers who stand on opposing sides. Each side fights for their own goals....maybe one side to free the dragon trapped in the stars and bring it back to life, the other to keep it trapped where it is...

    Or maybe there are more secret organizations...sort of like guilds or something......? Ah, this is so hard >.<

  11. A secret Hawaiian Organization captures a surfer, where he then learns that he is a descendent of Saint George who was the founder of an order that protects dragons. When Saint George died he was turned in the constellation the little dipper to watch over his descendants. The surfer who was captured by the Hawaiian organization learns that he is a descendant of Saint George and it is his duty to take over the order and dedicate his live to protecting dragons from evil and keep the world in balance. The surfer however learns that the Hawaiian organization is the evil that was capturing dragons and has to escape before the organization captures all the dragons.

  12. Im going to use my same guess as last week and go out on a whim here and say that the creatures are based on the Mythical sea dragon Drac, according to folklore the Drac is invisible to humans and is capable of changing its shape at will. St. George was said to have defeated the dragon by using the christianity cross and saving a princess who had "dragon-sight" that had been kidnapped by the Drac to raise his son, also St. George is the patron saint of Catalonia from which one of the myths originate. So my guess is that there is an organisation of Slayers belonging to an order created by St. George (or the princess he saved) that have the sight and sole purpose is to try and defeat the Drac. They arrive in a coastal town after hearing rumors of young children going missing with hint #3 (the Scales) representing the battle between the Slayers and the Drac. A love triangle between the Drac's son and 2 Slayers... Names like Jordi or Jordan, Sabrina and of course Draco
    Yeah, that's my guess... >.<

  13. Hmm, maybe a modern take on Hawaiian mythology....like the legend of the goddess Pele sending her youngest sister to rescue her mortal lover and has to slay dragons or mo'o, the shapeshifting water dragons?? Maybe there is a secret organization to slay these dragons, something they were born & destined to do. I have no idea where the saint would come into play in my little theory here lol. Yeah, that's all I've got. For some reason Hang Ten just said Hawaii to me because you think hang ten, you think surfing and when I think surfing, I think Hawaii because I used to live there. So once I had Hawaii in my head I couldn't get it out lol.

    So, that's my silly guess :) Thanks for the giveaway! Love all of your books!

  14. It's the life of St. George slaying the Dragon.
    SE could stand for Seraphim (i won't go for selkies).
    Seraphim the burning ones (St. George could be a Seraphim).
    If not, a seraphim came down from God and anointed St George to kill
    Dragon which could be Satan or Devil.

    The Secret organzation could be group of Christians fighting dragons
    since Paganism during his time, were dominant.

    His trial was unfair (balance scale) because he was killed because of Christian persecution. The Roman emperor offered him many things just for St. George to give offerings to his god but he refused because he's a believer of Jesus.

    His head was hanged on city walls and he made others a believers
    (Empress Alexandra and Athanasius) Therefore hanging 9 more Christians.

    That's all i hope I was right. :3

  16. Okay, my guess: There is a boy who loves to surf (California or Hawaii could be the setting) and one day, when he is surfing, he runs into something (maybe a portal?) that sends him to a world full of dragons. There is also a Secret Organization in this land that is hunting down the dragons. The boy might join the organization or fight against it (and I'm sure there's going to be some romance in there as well!!! :3 Maybe a girl in the organization is there and they fall in love). That's my guess! I would try on names but those are endless!

  17. Super Sekrit is probably based on Saint Michael Fighting the Dragon by Albrecht Durer. St. Michael, the angel of death who weighs souls, who fights a dragon with his ten angels.

    Awesome collective of clues! If it wasn't for the last one, I wouldn't have thought of it. Can't wait to see what SEKRIT really is.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think it's about a secret organisation whose members are chosen to hunt down and kill evil creatures from the underworld. They are all brave and crucial for survival of the human kind. They use saint Michael as their symbol, because saint Michael is sometimes portraited with a scale and a dragon, he decides who's allowed to enter heaven and who's not. The secret organisation's purpose is to maintain the balance between good and evil. I think the main character is a surfer who does not realise who he really is and how big of a part he is playing in it all. A mix between Dan Brown and Greek Mythology
    Okay here is my not so good guess
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  19. Ok I'm thinking 10 judges or main characters who are related to water creatures or water in general. They are part of a secret organization created by a saint whose goal is to find the stars or their destiny is tied together.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Definitely a secret organization that travels through the stars hunting down.....selkies!!! lmao Seriously, I am absolutely terrible at these :p

  21. dragons and mermaids? - put these two together and you get... Loch Ness!! :))

  22. There is a group of teens who live in Hawaii and whose parents are in a secret organization to find dragons. As it turns out, one of the teens sees a dragon one day and feels compelled to keep it a secret because the organization wants to wipe out all of the dragons from existence. Cali, the teen who sees the dragon, only tells her best friend Milo about the dragon sighting. Together they attempt to save the dragons from extinction.

    Milo has had a crush on Cali for a very long time and finally gets the guts up to tell her, after all, who knows how long they have left to live while being thrown in a dragon vs. human war?

    Cali, unfortunately, has fallen in love with the son of the leader of the secret organization, Drake. Drake happens to hate dragons. And any dragon sympathizers.

  23. It's about saint who fight with criminals... secretely

    ReplyDelete
  24. My guess is that your new story is about mythological creatures that are here on planet Earth. The main character is related to them somehow, in some way, but he/she doesn't know that. She has a major role in their futures. She is needed to restore balance to the respected problem. So they are trying to persuade them in to joining their (to use your clue) "Secret Organization".
    To incorporate the "Hang Ten," I am assuming that you, the author, have put a surfer/beach-y twist on it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think that...


    Dragons had been at war with humans for centuries, since the battle of Hercules and Draco, their descendants fought… Saint George killed the last of the dragons, or so we thought. George decided to judge the dragons, who terrorized humans, instead of killing them, he banishing them to the sea, a fate, to them, that was worse than death. George disappeared from history and spent the last of his days patrolling the waters the dragons roamed; soon a select group of people followed him doing the same.
    Today in Hawaii (or I think in Rio De Janeiro, because there is a HUGE Saint George pilgrimage there, showing his influence there), the newest generation of the dragon watchers lives and work…but they haven’t seen dragons for years. Until a dragon is pulled to shore by the surf, and turns into a human…

    I also think that one of the girls names will be Sabra or Sabrina after the princess who was supposed to be sacrificed in the original story.

    Thanks!

  26. Uh though one. I guess something with secret organization and mermaids and saints and some people trying to figure domething out on the universe

  27. I am just going to comment with what I want it to be about, dragons ;D!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Here's what I think:
    There's a secret organisation funded by St. George who are responsible for hunting down dragons. The guy moves to a place like Hawaii and gets pulled into the whole organisation because of a prophecy that says that only he can restore the balance between good and bad in the universe.
    He gets help from a local mermaid, whom he ends up falling in love with. So besides slaying dragons, he also has to figure out a way to be together with his mermaid girl.
    Tada! Though knowing Julie that definitely won't be it AT ALL!

  29. Ugh is so much OKay so I'm thinking a surfer boy meets a girl who is part of a secret society protecting something or trying to take back her home...... With dragons and other awesomeness ?¿

  30. Mmmm ok I suck at this but here it goes:

    I'm thinking about a secret organization founded by St. George who was said to kill the dragon, but in fact they were all warriors who joined forces with dragons to fight for mankind and bring balance to the world.

    Tada!! xD

  31. Hmmmm
    Still going with a sekrit Selkie organization.....based on a sea town maybe in California, Hawaii or Maine. The organization is either an organization that was started by Saint George or against an organization started by Saint George.
    The selkies are not really Selkies that turn into Seals but Selkies that turn into Dragons (hence the scales, Saint George) They take off their scales to turn into humans.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh dam...er, darn!! Uh...let's see something about 10 people who are apart of a secret organization that has some sort of connection to Saint George (like being devote followers or being descendants or something like that!) trying to balance the scales of justice! :D

  34. A secret organization of ten chosen ones were destined to trap the dragon in the depths of hell where he belonged. Years passed with the no incident. Until one day when the dragon gained strength enough to break out of its prison and take revenge against those who trapped it. One boy, George, will be the saviour of the people, defeat the dragon, and bring balance to the lands once again.

  36. Too mind-boggling for me to take guess! Haha, and so I'll go along with most of them here; it seems that they're leading to same conclusion. What you're gonna do if there are multiple winners? Good luck those who'll be joining this contest! I'll be lurking around, waiting for the winners. Lucius @ Skild.com

  37. well, let´s try.. haha
    I think it may be a secret organization founded by St. George, in charge of preserving the balance on a dystopian world, for better or for worse ... though I think this organization is evil, but there are 10 people (creatures, teens, sexy guys) that are revealed to this system for different reasons and these 10 have related to dragons, maybe they can tame them, or become them.
    Maybe the dragon blood can give you the power to expand your years of life, so St. George still alive, and he wants capture these young people to exploit their skills and become an immortal person...
    Thanks!

  38. A secret organization founded by St. George the dragonkiller is charged with keeping balance between good and evil in the world. Maybe there is a prophecy about a new dragon (the constellation?). So a group of teens who usually spend their time surfing are recruited to help, or find out that they are part of a family line involved with that secret order. And now that things are going to hell in the world, they need to step up and help.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It has something to do with dragons, the law, and keeping things balanced.

    There's a secret organization out there to keep things from going bad. Perhaps there are ten dragons on a kill list and this organization is out to get them to make them stop wreaking havoc but the main character is a protector of dragons? And they meet a dragon hunter? And I think that it's set near the ocean, but it in an exotic, European location. Like, Libya (setting of the legend of St. George and the Dragon). And the dragon protector is trying to convince the dragon hunter that if they get rid of all of the dragons the world will be out of balance.

    I feel like I'm pretty far off with this... but, oh well.

  41. I think the book is about a secret organization founded by St. George, who we all know to be a dragon killer. (the constellation is the Draco constellation aka dragon) Maybe St. George was found out and persecuted for his secret organization. People in the olden days would be terrified of such evil and maybe think he was one of the dragons/demons and act rashly, killing him unfairly (the scales?) BUT even though their leader was killed, the organization continued in secrecy, charged with keeping the existence of dragons on the low, and killing ones that got too bold, attacking humanity. The bloodline began with St. George and his brave friends/followers.

    Modern day, a setting next to a beach or somewhere exceedingly sunny, our heroine moves here. It's a new place, new people and faces. Maybe one day/night she encounters one of these dragons or beasts and is saved by one of the members of the surviving underground organization (hang ten is a surfer thing so maybe the guy surfs in his free time, plus to keep himself fit for killing/keeping dragons in control) of course this is a secret organization and she can't go blabbing her mouth off about what she's seen. Maybe even the organization themselves are part dragon? Maybe even the girl's family moved to this place because of the dragons and they're being hunted down by one. Or her parent(s) were killed by a dragon. Plus, maybe the girl is a part of the organization's bloodline, and she has a choice to turn away and let the others do their job alone, or stand with them and the guy (who I assume she's going to fall in love with) and become a true dragon slayer like her predecessors. Also the scales could mean keeping the balance between humanity and dragons. Maybe even these dragons can take human form, which can lead to all sorts of betrayal and secrets. You just can't tell who is a dragon in disguise, or human.

    Well there's my entry! Came out kinda long but fingers crossed and thanks so much for the give-away!

  42. So a girl is out surfing when she meets a really hot guy. However the hot guy belongs to a secret organization that help keep mythical beings such as Selkies from growing strong enough to wage war on humans.This organization was founded by St George after killing the dragon.It is run by people who can read the stars and get assigned to specific mythical beings based on what constellation they get.Hot guys is the first to get a Draco in a century.So he then embarks on his quest to vanquish a dragon but on his first day he sees a beautiful girl and they hit it off. everything is great until he meets her stepbrother/best friend who turns out to be half dragon which means hot guys needs to kill him and betray his new girlfriend who is more magical than she thought. After things start going wrong in magical world and her stepbrother/friend disappears they embark on a quest along with other people who also have secrets.Big secrets.

    The end of what may just be the most ridiculous thing I have ever written.

    Sorry about the sucky grammar and sentence structure and thanks for the giveaway.

  46. I think this series is about a secret organization of Mermaids working for the greek god Poseidon and they live out a balanced life between human life and the see, They use the stars to find their way but at some point a human starts to realize their secret which starts a plot of problems between the mermaids, their boss and the humans

  48. It's about a girl who is descendent from Saint George and is a member of a secret order that slays dragons. She is sent to California because of suspicious activity but then she meets a hot surfer and falls for him only to find out he's a dragon and that she is expected to kill him. At first she feels like he was tricking her and trying to gain her trust so he could kill her but then she realizes that he doesn't know who she is. Then there is a whole lot of angst and worry about if what the society is doing is right and does hot guy deserve to die and is it justice to kill all the dragons because some have killed before. Eventual she saves hot guy and they surf off into the sunset where they can be together without her family disapproving. Actually with this being a series the ending would need to not be so happy so maybe the first book ends with him finding out she has slayed his kind becoming angry and upset and so runs off leaving her heart broken thinking he will never come back.

    That was lot of fun! If I am close and end up winning my email is kfrankcpa(at)earthlink(dot)net

  49. Okay, my guess is the main character loves surfing and somehow gets pulled into some water world. Maybe Selkies or some more dangerous supernatural creatures. They have an unfair life/laws down there. And maybe only certain people can stand up to the evil running it? And this main character has ties to this underwater world? I am probably completely off but a guess is a guess I suppose! :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love all the answers thus far!
    Ok, here we go:
    A boy named George has just found out that his family has been part of a secret organization that has been around for thousands of years. As all of this is revealed to him, he realizes that not only does he have to be a part of it but that he has powers too. He soon finds out that he is a protector of the sacred Secret Dragons. There are only 10 of them left in the whole world. He needs to learn to balance his time and life between being a regular boy and this fantastical new world that he has now become a part of.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hmm...my random guess from these clues is that it's about a saint who lives in Hawaii who's also a judge in a secret surfing organization and is an astronomer in his spare time ;) Can't wait to find out what it's about!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Sea (hang ten reference) dragons (constellation...as well as St. George - who slayed a dragon...and I know you love dragons!) Secret organization could be a group of supernaturals (mer-folk or human) who secretly take care of the dragons so they don't become extinct. Scales of justice...there is one that wants the powers of the sea dragons for him/herself...and for that, they must be sacrificed...so the justice is trying to keep them alive...all the while fighting the one who wants to have all the power to themselves at the expense of these beautiful creatures. That's my best guess.... :P

    Thanks for the contest and for making it international Julie! Can't wait to find out if any part of what I guessed is true! xo

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ok final answer. There are a group of dragons that can make them selves look like humans or dragon kin that can hide the dragon parts of them live in a costal town when a secret organization founded by st George shows up because they feel the balance has been upset by the exsistance of them to kill the dragons/dragon kin but ends up falling in love with one of them and then trys to save them from the res of the order that he was part of

  54. Secret organisations tries to solve the mystery of St George and the dragon in order to save the lives of 10 people who hangs in the balance.

  55. Okay so. It maybe takes place at California where this girl just moved to. This girl loves the ocean, the sea and everything about it. So at the beach, she met this surfer and grew curious of him, because unlike the other cheery people, this guy is dark, mysterious and always keeps to himself, surfing. So she went and started hanging out with him, no matter how frustrated or pissed he becomes, and even brushing off the fact that he told her that he could hurt her. But as time goes by, she started to fall for him and when a secret organisation captured him, she was enraged. She found out that this secret organisation hunts dragons for a specific goal and the boss of the organisation, George, needs the guy for a reason unknown to the girl. However, gradually, she found out that the guy is actually a water dragon and the organisation needed him for some ritual concerning balance or the earth and sea as dragons are known for their power? And so, the girl went for him and in the end, they had a happily ever after in the sunset :D

  56. Its About George, who has a strict Catholic life and lives in Hawii, Then he meets a girl that he is crazy about. Then he finds out his family is part of a secret Soceity of Selkies Hunters. The Only Problem is the girl he is crazy about is in fact a Selkie. So now he must decide If he should give up everything for her or if he should go into the Family Business.

  57. Surfers (I'm thinking the main group set as characters are sea dragons, and part of a race of many different types of dragons such as sea, air, earth, fire, etc.) who are actually a part of a secret clan of dragons set to protect the world, but then something goes wrong, and they have to come out of hiding to save the world. Involves the story of St. George the dragon as a part of their history, which they tell to a human who gets involved in their war, and ultimately in their life as the human falls in love with one of the dragons, or vice-versa with a dragon falling in love with the human.
    And along with this plot, is a secret organization that knows about the dragons and their mission is to eradicate the dragons and/or are their enemies.
    In the end the human that gets involved ends up being the only one that can help the dragons and whatever crisis that comes up that they need to deal with.
    That's all I've got thought-wise ;)

  58. It's about ten people who are members of the Illuminati. They have been found guilty of crimes they have not committed and been sentenced to hard labor on the dragon planet where they will surely die. Except Georgia is a dragonslayer and finds that the dragons will help them. They unite and fight the evil corrupt ruling body.

  59. I don't know if this is write but here is my guess. XD
    A Secret organzation of people that live in California that act like exorcists to keep the balance of dragons (or demons) in the world at balance, but when an old foe of the Greek Gods threatens to come to life they must all band together with ancient saint to beat this new evil by calling on some unexpected hero's.
    If this is not write or if I have another guess I say it has to do with the new Kingdom Hearts 3! (From my tweet before) XD

  60. i think this story is about a secret society of some people ( people that have ancestors from the past, like roman, greek or eqyptian) , and the group has exsisted for a very long time, and they have some infulence (inspiration of some sort from ) from st. george like they look up to him as their figure, or maybe he is their true leader ( like a guide of somesort.) This society contains 10 people and is one that you have to be chosen for, or be destined for. These people have to fight for equality of people or maybe have to keep a balance between the mortal world and this unknown world, and maybe something is destined to happen in the end, or someone messes their destiny up, by following in love with the wrong person, and break what is destined to happen.
    thank you for the giveaway :)

  62. Maybe its about a boy or girl from Hawaii that discovers remnants of dragons. This discovery leads to a secret organization that is fighting against an evil dragon slayer to contact this boy or girl in order to help protect the remaining dragons. The character eventually finds out that it is his/hers destiny to protect dragons.

  67. So I'm guessing that maybe our heroine or hero has to save the last dragons on Earth (so maybe ten of them? Or maybe ten key members in this organization) but a secret organization founded by St. George (since he was often shown as slaying dragons) is trying to kill all the dragons.

    But I also want to say that this book has something to do with the zodiac since you also used the scales of Libra and a constellation as your clues.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think it's about an organization that do good of the people and protect them. And I think they use constellations as their signs, but during the day their regular people and at night their heroes, so they balance it out. I think the main character is gonna find out she belongs to the organization or she needs to be protected by them. And I think everything has to deal with Greek mythology.

  69. So, there's this saint who has 10 main descendants who are all in a secret organization, named the super Sekrit, that keeps the scales in balance, meaning 5 of them are good and 5 of them are evil...? Then, this girl who never knew that she was a child of a good descendant moved to a place where it is known for a surfer hotspot (california? Hawaii?) ). She met a cute surfer boy, and this surfer boy is actually the child of an evil descendant. Because this girl was oblivious to the guy's threat, she plunged head-first into the world of the super sekrit. She finally learned the hard way to not be so trusting (?).

  71. Hello, Draco.

    The Order of the Dragons has been in existence for hundreds of years carrying out missions to protect the cross and defend Christianity. At least, that was what they wanted the world to know.

    "It is the eve of St. George's Day. Do you not know that tonight, when the clock strikes midnight, all the evil things in the world will have full sway?"

    She knows they have been doing this for years; she knows its her family's legacy; she knows that she would carry the burden one day. But what if she doesn't want to? She just wants to win that surfing competition she had been (also) training for all these years.

  72. It takes place either along one of the coasts or Hawaii, where a group of teens are bonded together because their parents are a part of a secret organization that hunts Selkies (except the kids don't know that until later). The kids are convinced that their parents are apart of some FBI sort of thing, and are perfectly content to continuing thinking that until they stumble across an actual Selkie who is being hunted by their parents. It's then that the kids begin to realize that their parents aren't the heroes they thought they were and now they have to help save this Selkie and his/her people from this secret organization. As they're helping the Selkie they begin to discover this whole new world that includes other mythical beings like dragons, all of which are in hiding for fear of being hunted by the Christian organization. Now the kids have to go against everything they know, and everyone they love, to do the right thing and protect an entire civilization from being tracked, killed, tortured, and completely wiped out.

    That's all I got :)

  75. Love triangle. Set in Hawaii. They're part of a secret organization dedicated to eradicating the world of monsters dating back to st.George. mild religious undertones. The balance of the world is thrown off because there is only one dragon left. The girl decides to go find the dragon following a prophecy from ancient Greece that has been written in the stars. Boy #1 follows her. Boy#2 is someone she meets along the way who later turns out to be said dragon shes looking for.

    I don't know if I'm right but I had so much fun guessing the entire time! Made me look forward to Tuesday's when I normally wouldn't. Thank u so much for that.

  76. I think that it is about a secret organisation of people who are decendants from angels/saints who are fighting for justice against/with dragons :) And they have to find ten artifacts to complete a certain mission/prophecy :D
    And abviously there is going to be some romance, there has to be some romance! And there will be two lovely boys in it and I will be having a very hard time picking between them (and so does the main female)

  77. I think it's about a secret organisation (obviously) which fights crime and is looking into the case of 10 people who have been hanged. They find out that the strange occurrences have something to do with the stars.

  80. Well, since I just started looking at this today...
    Obviously there is a secret organization - maybe one that protects the existence of dragons, or at least has some connection to them? The scales of a dragon somehow figure into the storyline somewhere and water is an important element... Since your imagination knows no bounds I think I'd rather just wait and see what you have in store for us ;)

  83. It's about world with mighty killer dragons and a government system devoted to killing the dangerous beasts in order to protect humanity. The heroine is a surfer who likes but fears dragons. She is qualified to be part of a secret organization of people descended from St. George. Instead of having superior dragon killing abilities, the members of the secret org have a kind of affinity with the dragons. They can communicate/understand the dragons, and they only want peace.

    A great mythical dragon named Draco will awaken to find that his brothers are being killed one by one. He transforms into human form and meets with the surfer heroine. Together they will join/not join the secret org in order to be part of the war between dragons and humans.

    That's my guess. A lot of great responses... I'm sure mine is farthest from them all... Lol

  87. A female surfer in Hawaii finds a sea serpent scale while practicing for a surfing competition. She brings the scale to a local shop in town to figure out what it is. The owner of the shop is a descendent of St George and there is a secret organization that is to help protect these sea serpents and keep them a sekrit.

  88. I think it will take place in a place where theres surfing maybe Hawaii with a surfer main character. The main guy may be named George and I think that there will be Selkies involved as well as some astrology and there is somehow a secret organization that tries to keep in all under wraps until the surfer girl discovers it.

  92. Well I think that the series is about a secret organization that's job is to make sure that the scales of good and evil are kept in check. The organization is founded by the saint in the picture which is St. George and when the constellation of Draco is in the sky they have to be on high alert. Finally their headquarters are in Hawaii! Well there's my guess!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Okay, here is my guess - A secret organization of either dragon shifters or people with dragons who have to protect the world from the evil and keep the balance of justice. This organization was founded by St. George and perhaps one of the key characters is named George after him [maybe??]. The base for the organization is in Hawaii, or the main character is in Hawaii. Further, there will be an awesome scene about surfing. Finally, perhaps the antagonist is named Draco, or just a character is named Draco. Really, I am just excited that it is about dragons.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Okay here's mine.

    A secret organisation by the name of St. George (well St. George's something...it could be guise maybe something like "Golden Dragon" -- could be a shop or anything, maybe a food restaurant near the sea...but it's a front for the organisation).

    The organisation would have dated back to the days of St. George the original head, and would be tasked with "policing" the world and saving it from those supernatural creatures, mostly water creatures I'm guessing, like serpents and Hydras - fun fact, the constellation Draco, named after the dragon Landon in another mythology was called Lotan, which was a 7-headed Like a hydra! ...well that's how I came up with the thought that it may be sea serpents...

    So one of the main characters is a sea lover, turns out she has some (sea being's) bloodline in her and then she catches the organisation's eye.... dun, dun dun! what will happen now :O ?!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I'm guessing that it's gonna be amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Okay. There is a secret organization of Military Saints, founded and possibly led by George. They are in a time when the Draco constellation will once again me at the very peak of the Egyptian Pyramid. When the star reaches the top of the pyramid it will release one kick-butt dragon. The Saints have gotten a message from a vision, but I'd throw my coins in with the Oracle telling them about it since Saint George has been depicted as killing a dragon on a white horse. The Saints are told ten days prior to the event of the dragon appearing and they have to find out where and how the dragon will appear. If the dragon get's into the mortal world it will kill everything, so their success pretty much decided the fate of the world. Hence the "balance" bit.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Okay My second guess, Its about George and he lives in Hawaii, he is surfer, etc. So He is either a someone who can shapeshift into a dragon or he protects the Shifters, and he is part of a Organizations or he is a hunter I got that from the Contellation:
    Sagittarius, the Archer; so he must be a hunter. Hunter or the Hunted.

    or George is part of orginzation who are worship the higher being who live in the stars( far out I know) who protects other creatures, and his cover story is a surfer, or maybe he not exactly thrilled about being a part of the Society and just wants to Surf or wants more out of his life,or maybe is dream is to be a protector but the orginzation won't let him because he is different somehow or they don't allows Surfers . Anyway he lives in Hawaii then as he is mad about how mean they are to him he meets a girl in who is in trouble who Then after he helps her,reveals herself as I Selkie . Then she starts following him around keeping asking him to save her people , and he falls in love with her.


    ReplyDelete
  98. Going with my previous guess here. So ancient secret organization who like balances between the worlds, kind of like enforcers.. lives near the water or ocean (Hawaii or someplace with big waves), fights against dragons--air, land or water...and maybe descendants or followers of St. George. The characters live near the ocean or on an island as surfers; mythological dragons and beasties are involved(may be aquatic)....Headquarters are located under the ocean.
    The dragon could be the one guarding the most priceless and powerful treasure to that organization, which they think is be probably legend.
    Until the main guy/girl would set out to find it to save the world, when all goes to hell. The other main guy/girl would become involved (or is already involved but that could be a twist), then he/she and their friends would go through obstacles and emotional twists involving love triangles or squares.

  102. Oh God...um...
    There are these people that live near the ocean and hunt dragon things and are descendants of St. George. The constellation is Draco, which again leads to dragons. Since the clue is secret organizationS, I would guess that the female MC is a descendant of St. George and the male MC is a descendant or follower or something like that of Draco or maybe even Minerva, the goddess that killed Draco.
    Hope this is close!!! Can't wait to see what the book is about!

  107. The Order of St. George was established to keep the balance between the forces of Good and Evil, Humans and Dragons. Since the medieval times, the Order of St. George has gone underground, hidden and forgotten by modern people and memory. But every so often, when the stars of Draco come into ascendance, the descendant of George himself is called upon by the secret Order to keep the balance of the world in tact, to destroy the dragons that would sooner consume the world than to be opposed. But nobody, least of all the Order themselves, could have expected that the next great Saint of their founder was an American surfer, who would rather hang ten then have the fate of the world hang on their shoulders.

  108. The setting is in Italy and there's this girl who's related to some infamous saint so a bunch of people don't like her. But what they don't know is she's also part of a super secret society. And she also happens to be the youngest on in the society. But because she's young they don't think she's reliable so this rely on this American boy who can surf. and he's young too but he's super attractive so they don't care much.

    ReplyDelete
  109. *cracks knuckles* LETS DO THIS.

    Ok so its a story (probably fantasy or supernatural) that takes place in the beach or the coast. It's about a secret organization order thing founded by St. George. Who found out something supernatural and decided it was his purpose to fight against that evil in the world. Admission to this order is probably only through blood or very exclusive. Members are extensively educated and maybe homeschooled by the order.

    The star constellation is called Hydra (I think) and apparently the meaning behind that is this mythology slaying story about Hercules. So I'm going to go with mythological creatures, this secret organization (if they're secret they're secret for a meaning, to be kept out of the public eye so panic wont happen? Does that mean it takes place here?Like in this dimension not in a place like the never never? *Gasp* So the creatues hide among us!) is dedicated to slaying these creatures or hunting them down.

    Also, an arrow is a significant thing... maybe someone does archery? The main character herself? (which I have a hunch is named Hydra or something with an H) Who must be like the descendant of St. George, which probably makes her extra badass, shes stubborn like Meghan and there must be romance of course. Some yummy order boys that just happen to be surfers? :D Ummm.... the plots about a new generation of teen mythological slayer people who go on an epic adventure to kill these creatures and hope to restore the balance thats disrupted by them, the original purpose of the whole organization.

    Yeaaahh thats all I got *grins*

    Thank you Julie for this amazing opportunity!! :)

  112. I think that the series will be about all life hanging in the balance the secret to survival; in the stars (outer space).

  113. Okay, So I think the story will be about......
    Its set in present day, a coastal town (LA or something?) and mythical creatures hide amongst everyone, cloaked as humans. People who slay these monsters belong to an order that dates back to St. George and they come to the town, disguised as people from out of town, and try to set up a confrontation, but one of the slayers falls in love with one of the mythical creatures but they cannot be together. The slayers have to kill the creatures in order to keep the world in balance.

  114. It's definitely something mythological, possibly to do with ancient rules being broken (maybe for love). Also could it be about a secret organization started by that saint (maybe st george)? If it is st george then there will probably be dragons XD. The constellation could be something to do with a map. Maybe a map to find the last lost dragon egg?! Ohh and the heroine/hero would probably be from somewhere hot with beaches and plenty of surfing (Hawaii,Florida,California etc.) or maybe the heroine/hero's lover. As for names maybe Katie, Sophia, Georgia, Lucy or Laura for the girls and George, Harry, Jack, Nick or David for the boys.

  117. Okay….
    So I'm obviously not going to win the Grand Prize because the clues have me confused and my ideas are bad……but maybe just maybe I'm lucky enough to win a copy of The Iron Traitor…
    So heres what I thought….
    There is a secret organisation of dragon slayers that was founded centuries ago by Saint George…(I'm calling them the Gandor! Heheh anagrams!)
    Dragon numbers have dwindled since the Gandor formed…and so the dragons have been hiding, cloaking themselves as humans to go undetected...
    Dragons are pretty peaceful….
    Dragons like to live in or around volcanoes…
    So there is currently a clan? of dragons living on a Hawaiian island…
    There is an evil dragon…… his name is Carl-inok…
    Carl isn't happy with the way the dragons have been living…he thinks they have become weak, pretending to be humans and living as they do…
    Carl has plans for world domination…
    Meanwhile…the Gandor have detected strange happenings on the Hawaiian island…and send a group to infiltrate the town to see what they can find…

    The main characters are Septa the headstrong dragon, Richard the reluctant slayer, who just happens to be the son of the head of Gandor and related to Saint George, and Graham the human with the penchant for science….and all our main characters want to do is keep the peace…

    So yeah the series is about how Graham, Septa and Richard try to keep balance between the species by foiling Carls plans and convincing the Gandor that the dragons don't need to be slain….Love triangle ensues!

    Alright thats pretty much all I got…..

    I could explain how I think that Septa meets Richard when she saves him from drowning after he wiped out while he was surfing…
    Or how Septa finds out Richards a slayer long before he finds out she's a dragon...
    Or how Graham is Septa's arch rival in school…
    Or how Graham thinks he's insane when he see's Septa's dragon form the first time
    Or how swoon worthy both guys are….
    But I have too many thoughts and I'm kind of tired of typing….....I kind of want to tell someone the rest of my thought though....

    However all of my thoughts were before the pisces constellation clue….. I have so many ideas to what the pisces constellation clue means that I'm not even going to bother…
    I mean seriously are you just hinting at constellations…are the stars giving the character a sign?
    or has it got to do more with the pisces astrology….is the main character a pisces?
    Is it about the how the pisces are fish? Is the series really about mermaids?
    Or is it about how the fish represent balance? Is it about how the fish are tethered?

    I JUST HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT GOING ON!!!
    so I give up now….
    hope you had fun laughing at all my nonsense!
    thanks for the having an international giveaway!

  118. okay... let me guess. Uh... It's about secret organizations trying to find the last ten dragons on earth. some wants to use it for good and some wants to use them for evil. or, its about a secret organization founded by saint george and how the balance between good and evil hangs in the ten dragons that are still on earth and they must find them all and send them back to their constellation draco before something disastrous happens.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Hmmm, this is hard... Here goes:

    There is a secret organization built by a long dead saint that is fighting to tip the tides in a secret all out war between two sides. These two sides are fighting to either save or eradicate the last remaining dragons in the world who have been hiding in secret near a major surfing city. One of the last remaining dragons is a water dragon who has left the others, wanting to live life better than they had been living in the past and has moved to the beaches of California to become a surfer. Another idea is that each of the remaining dragons might have to do with constellations such as the Zodiac, so the main character who could be that water dragon, could be Aquarius or Pisces. Names could be Aria, Aiden, Castor, Mac, Ryan.

  120. It’s a secret organization of descendants of Perseo, who fights against the water dragon (Cetus) that is trying to destroy the island. Maybe it’s a mixed tale between greek mythology and the story of St. George, ancient forces and knights, protecting the balance between good and evil.
    ….OR….
    There’s an order of the Knights of Draco trying to awake an ancient prophecy by awaking the dragon… and they can only be destroyed by ten teens descendents of a magic clan of warriors…. Lol! I’m lost of imagination!

  127. So, I am thinking dragons and magic fish. Like really snarky magic fish. I think that there are dragons that keep balance to the world that are acting up and an organization of decedents of Saint George are in charge of keeping the dragons alive and hidden from the people of the world. I would think that would be set in England with people with very English names, like Elizabeth, George, Henry, Victoria etc. Someone in the organization goes rouge and takes away a dragon or kills it which upsets the balance of the world. The organization needs a surfer to find a decedent who can see and talk to dragons but who is also part mermaid who can get a sea dragon to leave the depths of the ocean and become a dragon of balance. I'm thinking it's a guy that they find in Hawaii or some such place with a mother who was a mermaid and a father who is a decedent of St George. I going to call him Keahi because it is Hawaiian and means flames. He goes on a journey with the princess of the merpeople (I'm going to call her Lana) to find an ancient dragon to restore the balance to the world. And his side kick is a magical wish fish, think Aladdin's Geni crossed with Grim. Ta-da!!!

    I can only guess that your new book is set near the coast and is about dragons and a St. George-like protagonist, whose goal or mission is to slay a dragon to keep the balance in the world. These dragon-slayers are probably part of a secret organization out to destroy dragons until the protag actually encounters one and sees his distorted perception of them?

  133. I think it's about ghosts:). A secret organization tries to destroy all the ghosts. Why ghosts? Because St. George has been death for a long long time.

    I seriously have no idea what it could be, so I thought I guess this:D

  134. Okay, so here's my guess! *crosses fingers in hopes I'm close to the truth*

    On a fateful day along the coast of Hawaii, a surfer girl is riding a wave when she sees a creature she can’t explain and loses balance on her board. She falls into the ocean, where she sees the creature again before she falls unconscious. When she awakens, she discovers that she’s in a cave near the large creature she saw before, which turns out to be a dragon. With the dragon is a boy, who explains he’s a part of a secret organization of dragon riders. The girl, frightened but curious, finds out more and more about the organization, only to find out there is a group of Saint George followers who seek to slay every dragon in existence. Among the people in this group is another boy the girl can’t help but be drawn to. Thus she is pulled into both societies, where she learns of a greater evil trying to take over the world and has to try to bring both organizations together to fight the evil taking over the world.


    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway, Julie! It was fun coming up with my theory. :)

  135. Yay for international o/

    Sou... The story will take place at hawaii, where a girl meets a surfer guy named George (=D), but he's part of a secret organisation that has to balance the forces of "good and evil" through either fights or anything like that. One of these forces are dragons and the guy probably is some kind of saint or extremely powerful person / dragon / whatever.

  136. Okay so takes place in Hawaii, or California. Someone is a surfer. There's a secret organization along the lines of the Knights Templar who hunt dragons and/or other mystic creatures to keep balance in the world. The organization was founded by/based on St. George, the dragonslayer.

    Someone is named George, or Anastasia. Perhaps direct descendants of the two.

  137. Hum... So my guess is:
    The protagonist is a man and he is called George. He lives near de ocean and loves surfing. Then one day fiosdghfgkah happens and he discover that there is a secret organization of intergalactical justice and there are spacial surfers and dragons and stuff...
    Oh god, I have the felling that I'm totally mad. But lets continue:
    So there is this girl that George like, and she is part of this intergalatical justice surfers stuff, and she presents him as some kind of guy with super power to dominate dragons, which is necessary considering that the world is in danger. And he found out that he has some kind of dragon blood, or St. George himself, or...
    Ok, I DO HAVE NO IDEA WHATS GOING ON! I've read people theories and I've just realized how mine seems fucked up. So lets try other line of though.
    So there is two organizations in the world, and they are involved with dragons. One must think that they are good and to be doomed, and other should think that they will be the ruin of the world, and that orgs have been so far in balance. But something happens and a surfist is the key to everything. And he see himself involved in everything before something is done. Than there is this girl that he meets and simply love dragons and says that the bad guys are the ones that kill them. But there is this other girl that shows to him, George?, that the dragons are the ones to be feared and killed, since the past condemns them, and that they are the true justice that keeps the world in balance. But something is threatening this balance and they blame each other for the everything, when the real danger is occult.
    Fine, I traveled enough now. Lets stop before I ruin everything. Hopes I win at least the book... '-.-

    1. Ok, since I just put the main character as a boy, here goes my theory if it was a girl:
      There is this girl that has this group of 9 friends, with her 10, that loves surfing. Than a mysterious guy start surfing, and there is a competition, and this girl is the best, but this guy win from her. Suddently interested in him, she starts observing his every movement, regardless of his protests to her to back off. She observes that every night he goes to the sea to surf and desapear, and a lot of time after he appears again. Curious, she start to follow him in the sea, but the sea she has so familiar with was gone, and in the night surfing is really dangerous. Than she fell of the board and drown. But the guy save her, and take her to a place she can't speak about. And it is a org. that slay dragons, or of dragons idk. Than he make her promise she won't tell anyone and things start getting really weard and dangerous after that.
      So, I think it's my last guess, 'cause I have so many crazy theories that just writting it down is ,itself, a crazy idea. And thanks Julie to make it international. Can't wait!

  141. So this is my best guess...
    So in Hawaii there is a team of elite teenage "judges" or "law enforcers" who are disguised as regular teenage surfers. Their job is to keep the local magical creatures in line (probably selkies and dragons). When a seemingly regular guy/girl moves to Hawaii, they set off a chain of events that awakens an ancient evil, and sets off a prophecy that could bring on utter destruction. And this guy/girl is descended from Saint George, and they are the only one one who can stop this ancient prophesy from coming to pass. And of coarse there will be romance ;D

    THANKS JULIE IM SO EXCITED!!! THIS WAS FUN!!!!

  142. 10 people from a secret society are hung by a dragon. The society was formed by St. George to fight against dragons. After the 10 people are killed, the balance between humans and dragons is tipped and a war/fight breaks out.

  143. Down from the line of the followers of St. George, slayer of dragons, a secret organization was made. Their crest is a dragon, of course. The main aim of this organization is to balance the scales between good and evil. They are keepers of balance. They serve to keep the world of magic and the world with none. Such is the case that trainees to be part of this organization must undergo rigorous training, learn many maneuvers. The tale is just beginning.

  144. The legend of St. George is one of him killing a dragon. Some stories that he saved the princess very much like how Perseus save Andromeda. Some stories mentioned that a female looks, watches, from a far. What if, the truth, is hidden. What if the hideous dragon is actually protecting something? It is now up to the secret organization to protect this secret, to keep the scales balanced. A story of maneuvers and tricks. To find the secret, they must indeed.

  145. Draco and George are part of a secret organization. They are the best in this organization on maneuvers. Such troublemakers, those two are. But alas, the balance had been tipped. It is now up to those two to return the balance at once

  146. The secret organizations entrance is through a rocky coast. The member of the organization must be good in their skills to arrive at such. The aim of the organization is to balance the scale. There had been increasing reports of sighted "supposedly extinct or non-existent" beings. It is their job to keep them from the sights of the modern mortals.

  147. Dystopsia setting. The rulers are called the HANG TEN. And they are the 10 most powerful people at that time. They are called as such because they hang 10 people every month as a sacrifice to the dragon. Slaves they become to the dragon Draconian Law is the law the society abides in. This helps maintain equality so that the Dragon would not attack them. A secret rebel group/organization under the name of St. George was made so as to kill both the Hang Ten and the dragon.

  148. A secret society of surfers descended from Saints try to keep balance in the world as dragons, disguised in human forms, invade and try to cause general chaos.

  149. I am terrible at these things, so I'll go way, way out on a limb: Crime-fighting mermaids have come to earth from another planet, and they band together to take down one of those Skulls-type organizations.

  150. It’s a story about a dragon slayer whom is part of a secret organization known as the Unicode, a society that believes they are keepers of truth, balance, morality, and justice. The dragon slayer is descendant of Saint George, a warrior whom victoriously killed the first dragon and saved a hand maiden.

    Meanwhile a dragon has made its nest near the beach of San Diego, California.

    The dragon slayer voyages out to the dragon’s nesting ground, hoping to slay the dragon, knowing in his heart that these creatures are evil and must be destroyed. One day he visits the beach, searching for signs of dragons; a scale, a talon, or charred trees. As he ventures out he falls upon a girl surfing on the beach. He is dazzled and mesmerized by her as he watches her surf the waves. Little does he know that this girl is part of the Owl of Minerva, the protectors of dragons. And she will let nothing come between her and her dragon, not even a handsome, charming boy.

  151. George never was a saint, he was a dragon. He was one of the only dragons that took to the side of humanity, because he was one of the only few could shift into a human. Him and his legion of 10 other shifters protected humans from dragons for years...until he was killed by the people who he'd sworn to protect. The rest of the group went underground, protecting George's beloved humans.
    Now the next generation are living in Hawaii, young and fresh. They only care about surfing and the occasional fight. But with their old enemy Draco on the rise and some elders that refuse to forget their friend's death, its only a matter of time before things fall apart.

    My entry. Thanks.

  153. Georgiana and her pet dragon Draco are a perfectly matched pair. Together they live a carefree life surfing the waves and skies around the islands of Hawaii. But when Georgiana meets handsome, brooding Ten, she is pulled into the fascinating Sekrit Society of St. George, a religious order dedicated to pursuing justice by following hidden clues and reading the stars. Will the scales of justice tip in Georgie, Ten and Draco's favor?
