January is here! The Iron Queen comes out in less then a month! AAAAGH!
So, to celebrate its imminent release, have I got a contest for you.
First, let's take a look at the prizes.
A signed set of all three Iron Fey books: THE IRON KING, THE IRON DAUGHTER, and THE IRON QUEEN.
Within all three books will be a unique, hand-drawn sketch of one of the characters from the series. Done Chibi style.
(chibi style Iron Fey)
FIRST AND SECOND PRIZE
Two other winners will receive a signed The Iron Queen. (Minus the doodles.) So, now that you know what you can win, what is this contest, exactly?
Well, its easy.
All you have to do is show your Iron Fey/Team Ash/Team Puck love in some way. This could be via fan trailer, fan art, fan fiction, fan anything. Be creative. Sculpt Puck out of play dough. Make an Ironhorse out of tires. (That would be very impressive, actually.) Take a photograph of the Winter Court. Write a poem in Grimalkin's voice.
Then post it on your blog and send me the link in the comments. Be sure to include the contest in the post, so others can have a chance to win, too.
This will be a contest, not a giveaway, so at the end of January, I will decide which entry I like best. I'll be judging on impressiveness, skill, and creativity, so anyone can enter to win. (Don't tell me you have no talent; I know you can think of something.)
Okay! Get out there and CREATE!
And yes, this is international. :) (Haha! I remembered this time)
Awesome! I'll get to it.ReplyDelete
i'm doing thiss!ReplyDelete
I have a question.ReplyDelete
Can I post it on my Notes in facebook?
@Primero: Certainly. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the answer!ReplyDelete
Oh! Im gonna have to put my thinking cap on and come up with something good! By the way, my Iron Daughter review is up. If you would like to take a look, its the second post down on the page. Thank you for such a wonderful story!ReplyDelete
ooooh, can I post a picture of The Iron Fey bracelet I made as an entry for the contest? I'm not very creative any other way like trailers and dough sculpturing. I loooooove the chibi style drawing, sooo adorable. =DReplyDelete
Awesome! I really love your doodles Julie! They are so funny!ReplyDelete
The idea is great !!!ReplyDelete
My entry into the contest. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Julie!! Here's my entry:ReplyDelete
Julie - question regarding the format of "The Iron Queen." Will it be released as an ebook or only as paperback? I've been wanting to pre-order the ebook on B&N, but it says that it's not available in that format. Thanks in advance for any insight you might have!ReplyDelete
This is my entry; Ballad of the Iron Fey! I hope you like it!ReplyDelete
Jessica - I'm not Julie, but I DO work for Harlequin. Yes, the Iron Queen will absolutely be released as an ebook. The digital team would have a fit if we couldn't get our ebook fix! ;)ReplyDelete
The book will be available on B&N soon!
Hope that helps. :)
What a fun and generous contest!ReplyDelete
Unfortunately I don't have a blog :/
Could I make one just for this? Or would that totally defeat the purpose because nobody would really see it? lol
Good luck everyone! :)
AHHHHH.... I can't wait for this book to come out. I made the misstake of reading the first two really fast. Glad that there are going to be two more after iron queen.ReplyDelete
Do you have to have a blog to do this?ReplyDelete
Jessica: I think it will be out in ebook format when the release date comes round. Feb. 1st I believe.ReplyDelete
EvieGirlRocks and ako4eggs: You don't have to have a blog; you can email me your entry, but it would be great if you could make it public somehow. Or I could also post it on my blog.

International yay! Thanks Julie ^_^ great contest!ReplyDelete

On the blog. An Iron Queen is Coming soon Contest Entry.. http://bit.ly/hsX1pK
Thanks for this great contest, Julie! I was looking at most of these entries and thinking, dude, I can't do anything REMOTELY like this! but then I had an idea. I can't draw to save my life, but I think I'm goign to try to write something :)ReplyDelete
Hope you like it Julie, I worked hard. <3 http://cmulberry.deviantart.com/art/Pegash-193004148ReplyDelete
it is on a deviant art account but its easy to find. thank you for all of the fantastic books you have and plan to share with us all. You are amazing.
oh I forgot to mention that you would have to click the download link off to the right to have the full sized image. Again thank you, Your books keep me alive.ReplyDelete

@Carter: Couldn't comment on Deviant Art, but OMG that's so cool! I love how you did the hair! Thank you for entering!ReplyDelete
@Anonymous: I will post the winning entries on the blog, and ask that you email me your address so I can send you the prizes.
Julie, thank you so much.ReplyDelete
I had so much fun doing it. The contest was an awesome idea :) I don't think I have ever known of another author who was so connected with her readers, it's really cool.
I just started on my entry today! I'm thinking it's gonna be amazing. ;)ReplyDelete
Well, finally finished mine!ReplyDelete
It's an acrylic painting, if anyone is curious. Here's the link:
Thanks so much for this contest, it's so much fun! And I haven't painted in forever, it was good for me to get back into it!
question...can I have more than one entry?ReplyDelete
So I can just email it to you if I don't have a blog or any other way to make it public?ReplyDelete
Music always inspires and whatever inspiritian it gave you, it was good. Your work is beautiful and I wish you luck.
@Anonymous: Just one entry, please.ReplyDelete
@Anonymous: You can email it to me if you have no other way to post it. I'd really prefer if its up on a website or blog, though. -Thanks!
Alright, well, here goes nothing! Go, Mab, go! (It's a re-writing, I'm almost sorry to say, and stands at 1583 words, so be prepared to read for a bit!) http://spitethefallen.livejournal.com/1869.htmlReplyDelete
cant believe its still the 14thReplyDelete
half a month to see who wins...
Yay! I just finished my entry! I hope you like it; its Meaghan, Ash, Grim and Iron Horse done in colored pencil!ReplyDelete
We all spent so much time on it its gonna suck if we don't winReplyDelete
I just emailed my entry! :)ReplyDelete
Was JulieKagawa@juliekagawa.com the right email?
Don't let it "suck" if you don't win Anonymous (or anyone else). Even if you don't win, wasn't it fun/relaxing/cathartic/entertaining/OtherSuchDescriptiveWords to make a new piece of art and show your Iron Fey love?ReplyDelete
For me? Yes.
Its just that you work so hardReplyDelete
then you don't win
I agree with Christina, I actually prefer this to random giveaways. At least this way I have a better chance, and besides it gives me a bit of extra motivation to do something I have been wanting to create anyways =) Not to mention you get to check out all of the awesome art that others fans create.ReplyDelete
I know, cscottdraw! I've loved looking at all the different things everyone has made! There all so good!ReplyDelete
Ack, sorry I haven't gotten around to this in a bit. DEADLINES, blog tours, guest posts, oh my!ReplyDelete
Anyway, @EvieGirlRocks, I did get your entry, thank you!
@Anonymous: Unfortunately, that is the way of most contests. There can only be a certain number of winners. I'd give everyone a prize if I could.
@cscottdraw @Christina: I agree completely. I've been stunned by all the entries; I think I'll have to get a voting committee to decide the winner, they're all amazing.
I don't have a blog. Can I tweet my entry? Also, is this different than the Court Tour thing?ReplyDelete
wish there was a later deadline. Everyone's entries r awesome. I can't think of anything to do *runs and hides*ReplyDelete
I FINALLY got your books from the library so I can go back through them so I can get my entry in! I can't wait!!!! I hope by "the end of January" you mean the very last day!!!!!ReplyDelete
Yay! Here is my entry for the contest! I posted it on facebook on my notes. I hope I win! :-DReplyDelete
Oh man. I'm thinking about my entry, and how bad it will be when I finally get around to doing it. I can't compare to these!ReplyDelete
here's my entry:ReplyDelete
^ you just combined two amazing things!!!!!! Taylor and Julie! I love it!!ReplyDelete
Here's my entry. It's a letter and poem from Puck to Meghan.ReplyDelete
@Anonymous. That is such a good video!ReplyDelete
@Sandy Awesome poster!
@Ashley: So sweet!
Okay, so I'm working on mine! On page 278 of IQ, Ash tells Meghan a story from his past. I'm writing that story. And...that's all I'm gonna say on the subject! ;)
Finished mine! I'll be posting it on my blog Thursday morning, and come here to link!ReplyDelete
(It totalled at 1,732 words)
Hey Julie, I don't know if you got my email. It was sent from smile72296[at]yahoo.comReplyDelete
Here is my entry! :ReplyDelete
It's not all that great, but I wanted to try!
I love these entries!!! I can't wait for when the contest ends but at the same time wish it wouldn't because I'm still working on mine. I'm a slow poke, yes it's true. Good luck to all, I really enjoyed them all.ReplyDelete
Hi Julie, I have a message for you in facebook..please check it out :)ReplyDelete
Yay! I finished mine and it went up on my blog this morning! It's a bit long, but I like it!ReplyDelete
Warning: It's spoilery from IQ!!!
@Valen: I love your drawing! Grim looks almost cute, and you captured Prince Angst perfectly! Love your Puck drawing, too! He's awesome :)ReplyDelete
I love how you portrayed the glamour, too! Those glowing balls are cool :)
Okay, so here's mine: http://boldfacedtruth.livejournal.com/2750.htmlReplyDelete
Hope you don't mind @boldfacedtruth, I went to the link to read your work and I really enjoyed it :) At times I forgot it wasn't Julie! keep it upReplyDelete
@carteer Thank you for reading it! I'm glad you enjoyed it!ReplyDelete
@boldfacedtruth: brilliant. love the idea of Grim's perspective!ReplyDelete
Hi,I hope it's not too late to join.ReplyDelete
Here is my entry:
Riv Re, I saw your review on my story! Thank you, haha.ReplyDelete
I don't know if it got sent through email, so I'll just post it here too, just in case.
Hi Julie! :)ReplyDelete
Here's my entry, written by me and my best friend, Melinda. I hope we made the deadline!
Good luck to everyone else! We hope you like it! :)
Tamara: gorgeous :)ReplyDelete
Here is my contest entry! Sorry it's so late!ReplyDelete
Some eye-candy for Team Ash :) Please let me know what you think! It's in my manga style :3
@kaotichost: awesome portrayal. Love thee expression.ReplyDelete
@riv re Thanks! Glad you liked it :))ReplyDelete
OK! Finally done! I made this in between life and other extreme sports. Haha! It's a slideshow.ReplyDelete
@Emmy: hysterical. love it!ReplyDelete
@Riv haha thanks! ^^ I read yours when you first put it on and might I say that you did a most excellent job!ReplyDelete
@Emmy Thanks :) I worked pretty hard, and it's my first piece of fanfic.ReplyDelete
@Riv Your work shows. Really? I've never written one, but I read them all the time. :DReplyDelete
@Emmy I've never really had much of a reason to write one, nor much of an interest. But I think I'm developing in interest in fleshing out backstory. So even though that scene I wrote about was only briefly mentioned, I thought it would be interesting to write. (I'm considering writing a fanfic of Puck, Ash, and Ariela too. Might even join fanfiction.net)ReplyDelete
i changed it slightly
hope im not too late
@Riv Ah, I see. Well if it interests you, I say have at it. (Fun stuff! You should. :) )ReplyDelete
@Emmy. Thanks. I've decided to have a go at it, and I'm writing the story of Ariella's death. (If only I could remember the details. Argh.) I think what's prompting this is my love of the Iron Fey trilogy. Which is now finished :( (Iron Knight!)ReplyDelete
can I submit mine later today? Can you decide the winners in Feburary 1st? Because im in Japan on a buisness trip, and I'll be back in America to submit mine in a few hours. Thanks!
I mean im going with my dad in a buisness tripReplyDelete
@Kaylee: love the fanfic! It was so sweet and funny with Puck's point of view!ReplyDelete
@Tamara: your picture was beautiful! Just like Ash!ReplyDelete
Here is my entry. I just finished it! I'm so happy I made it in time.ReplyDelete
Oops! I'm sorry. That was the wrong one.ReplyDelete
This is the right one.
@Anonymous Ah really? Thankyouu! :DReplyDelete
All entries are great! And that's what makes me nervous the most.
By the way, good luck everyone.. :)
okay here's my entry. its not as good as anyone elses, and I only had a little time to work on it, but I wanted to try. As this is one of my first fanfics, can you give me feedback and please read it? Thanks!
Okay, everyone, I apologize for not keeping up with this. Please believe me when I say STUFF and life is kicking my butt this month. I promise to read and view all entries when I choose the winner on Wednesday.ReplyDelete
Thank you all so much for entering! I will talk to you all sooooooon!
@Primero: Wow. That is so incredible! Love the crochet dolls! Grim!ReplyDelete
@Julie Can't wait!!
I know it's late, but here's my entry! I posted it on twitter and @mentioned you. But here's the link to it anyway.ReplyDelete
First time I've photoshopped anything; there's no way it can compete with any of the stuff others posted lol oh well.
Okay so I finished reading Iron Queen and decided that I wanted to write another story to go along with my entry. It takes place right after Iron Queen. I left the poem and letter from Puck but I would also like you to read the part about Meghan.ReplyDelete
By the way I LOVED Iron Queen and am dying to read Iron Knight. Any idea when we can be expecting it?
Thanks for the contest Julie!
I'm so sorry about the quality, but it wouldn't upload at full quality, so the text only appears in the smaller view. I'll try to fix it, but I don't know if it'll work... D:
@ Riv Re: Thanks :D! I didn't decide when it took place, just somewhere during her books, and I haven't read any fanfics with my idea... which one is it?ReplyDelete
@Riv Re Thanks for reading my entry. I read yours last night and I really enjoyed. I think you did a really good job! :)ReplyDelete
I was hoping you'd get the winners up tonight :( Well, still a bit left for Wednesday!ReplyDelete
Good luck everyone! Can't wait to find out who won! *crosses fingers*
when are we finding out who wins?ReplyDelete
Poo is it too late to submit? Just found out about this contest :<ReplyDelete
Did someone win cause I just finished mine?ReplyDelete
The issues involving Style Ariela has been a popular topic amongst scholars for many years. Advancments in Style Ariela can be linked to many areas. While it is becoming a hot topic for debate, it is impossible to overestimate its impact on modern thought. It still has the power to shock the over 50, trapped by their infamous history.ReplyDelete
