Who's ready for a contest?
Awesome. Now, who has a burning question they'd want to ask one of the characters of The Iron Fey? Who wants to be pen pals with Puck? Or just chat with Ash a little?
Now's your chance. All you have to do is write an e-letter to Puck, Ash, Meghan, Grimalkin, Razor, Glitch, whomever (It has to be someone from The Iron Fey series), and post it on your blog/Facebook/somewhere everyone can see. Write it like you're writing a letter to a friend, ask the questions you've always wanted to ask, or just tell them what you think of them. Be sure to include the contest and why you've chosen that particular character, then post the link in the comments section.
(ETA: Sigh. I keep forgetting to add if its international or not. It is. Pen pals from anywhere are welcome.)
The deadline to post your letter is April 30th. And the week after in May, one winner will receive two things.
1). A signed THE IRON QUEEN.
2). A handwritten letter from the character they wrote to.
A word of warning. I know many of you have burning questions about The Iron Knight and what comes after Iron Queen, but spoilers of any kind will NOT be answered. Sorry, but that's the one thing we can't reveal. Anything else, though, is fair game. If you want to ask a certain Winter prince what color his underwear is, that's up to you, though it might not be answered (by Ash anyway). So, have fun and get writing. I can already tell you the gang is completely thrilled to be doing this.
Puck: Ooh, ooh, ask ME the underwear question! Come to think of it, ask me any questions you want to know about ice-boy--I'd LOVE to answer them.
Grimalkin: And how would you know that, Goodfellow? Though I am not sure I wish to know the answer...
Puck: Ehehehehe, I work in mysterious ways, cat.
Ash: I'm going to kill you all.
Fantastic! I have to give some thought as to who my letter will go to. When is the deadline?ReplyDelete
My brain is already in a whirl♥
oops now I see April 30th.....blonde moment!ReplyDelete
XD Great Contest.ReplyDelete
Who to choose who to choose...^_^
Ooh wow. What a great contest. Time to go think about who to write to, and what to ask.ReplyDelete
Is it available outside of the US or US residents only (like almost all contests are >( )?ReplyDelete
OMG what a great idea!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I hope it's an international contest, please ;)
AMAZING CONEST! Right away I knew I need to write to Puck. Here is the link: http://booklover-bookchicks.blogspot.com/2011/04/iron-fey-series-contest-dear-puck.htmlReplyDelete
FANTASTIC! I am reading The Iron Daughter right now so I can't wait to finish The Iron Queen to write a letter...my students will FLIP tomorrow when I tell them about this...thanks for such a wonderful contest!!!ReplyDelete

Question: How will the winner be chosen? Most creative letter? Funniest? Randomest? Or will it be chosen by random?

The text above is written in Swedish because I am from Sweden (pointing out the obvious -.-) So I have written a letter to Ironhorse from The iron fey series written by: Julia Kagawa. And I have done that because Julia has an contest on her blog. If you want to enter or just check out some amazing books, go here: http://juliekagawa.blogspot.com/2011/04/contest-time-dear-ashpuckgrimrazor.html#comments So why did I write to Ironhorse, because I like him, he is fun, witty and a good friend. And aslo because I had so many questions to him. The only one I would have written to beside him is Puck. But that is just to obvious so here it goes:
DEAR IRONHORSE, I FREEEAKING MISS YOU! I HOPE YOU ARE GOOD UP THERE IN FAERY HEAVEN. IF THERE IS ONE, YES IT IS. I HAVE DECIDED THAT NOW. OF COURSE IT HAS TO BE. AFTER DEATH IT JUST CAN'T BE OVER, HOW CAN YOU BE SO SURE ABOUT THAT? OR IF YOUR NOT IN HEAVEN WHERE ARE YOU THEN? ANYWAY, I WANT TO ASK YOU SOME THINGS FIRST: WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER THAT MEGHAN WAS THE IRON QUEEN. BECAUSE YOU DID RIGHT? THAT WAS WHY YOU HELPED HER AND BECAUSE OF THE DEAL, BUT MOSTLY BECAUSE SHE WAS YOUR QUEEN. DON'T DISAPPOINT ME AND SAY THAT YOU DID NOT KNOW. SO HOW DID YOU FIGURE IT OUT AND WHEN? I MEAN, I DID NOT GET IT UNTIL AT THE BEGINNING OF THE END. THAT'S HOW SLOW ON THE UPTAKE I AM... BUT I MISS YOU VERY MUCH. YOU WAS ONE OF THE BEST YOU KNOW, BUT MAYBE YOU DID NOT KNOW. ANYWAY YOU WAS. YOU PUT SOME HOT SAUCE IN TO THE POT AND MIXED IT UP REAL FUN. NEVER QUIET AND FULL OF WISDOM, YEAH I THOUGHT YOU WAS. YOU DEVELOPED SO MUCH, FIRST I HATED YOU, NOT THAT WEIRD ACTUALLY, YOU WAS NOT NICE AND THEN YOU JUST BECAME ONE OF THE BEST PERSONS EVER. A GOOD FRIEND THAT DID EVERYTHING FOR YOUR FRIENDS. YEAH YOU WAS, MEGHAN'S FRIEND NOT HER SERVANT. ASK HER, SHE WILL TELL YOU THE SAME. YOU FREAAAKING SCARIFIED YOURSELF FOR MEGHAN AND HER TASK. I LOVE YOU FOR THAT, LOVED YOU BEFORE BUT THAT JUST BROKE MY HEART. SUCH A GOOD FRIEND, NOW PUCK WILL GO NUTS BUT THIS THIS IS NOT A LETTER TO HIM. IT'S TO YOU AND THAT'S BECAUSE YOU ARE SO GOOD AND FANTASTIC. YOU ARE WORTHY OF GREAT PRAISE! AND JUST ON MORE THING BEFORE I SAY GOODBYE. YOUR FLAME OR FIRE? IN YOUR RIBCAGE, IS IT HOT? AND IF I PUT MY HAND IN IT WILL I GET BURNED? NOT THAT I THINK THAT SOMEONE WOULD GET AWAY WITH THAT BUT JUST AS A THEORY. WOULD I GET BURNED? OR IS THE FLAME YOUR SOUL OR SOMETHING? AND HOW CAN IT BURN ALL THE TIME? BY MAGIC? GLAMOUR? JUST SOMETHING I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT. SO I MISS YOU, I HAVE WRITTEN THAT THREE TIMES NOW. BUT YOU GET IT RIGHT. I MISS YOU! I MISS YOU! I HOPE YOU HAVE MUCH HAY OR WHAT DO YOU EAT? NOW I HAVE TO STOP BABBELING. YOU WILL PROBABLY JUST PUKE ON THIS LETTER BUT I WAS REALLY FUN WRITING TO YOU. BYE! XX SANNA

Thanks Julie for this amazing contest !

My letter is To Ash, because he is awesomeReplyDelete
THis is great!! XX
Dear, sweet Puck,ReplyDelete
Earlier, your creator; JK, the one and only, mentioned that you were quite famous with the ladies; most letters submitted for this contest were for you.
Frankly, that doesn't surprise me. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I was gasping for breath because I was laughing so hard at your witty comments.
So you can only imagine my delight when Julie Kagawa mentioned this contest on her twitter - write a letter to your favorite character and get the chance to have it answered.
I've always wanted that chance; to communicate with a favorite character, knowing however that it was impossible. They don't really post your e-mail addresses in the foreword and last time I checked Robin/Puck Goodfellow was nowhere to be seen in the Yellow Pages.
I hope Ash doesn't have anything against you receiving the majority of all the letters but if he does, tell him I've always thought he should be the one to end up with Meghan.
I'm sorry, but since this is my first time communicating with a favorite character, I'm gonna be completely honest.
I know that you would've literally given up your life for her but why didn't you try to gain her love sooner? Was it something Oberon forbid you to? Did you not want to risk your friendship with her?
It could really be anything, and that's why I'm asking.
Personally, I think that this worked out for the best. Meghan and Ash are in love and you know what? You could always swing by. I make the meanest salad you have ever laid eyes on; I guarantee you that it can cure any broken hearts. Including yours.
I'm not kidding, it's heavenly. I have no doubt in my mind that even a faery such as yourself would enjoy it immensely.
Besides, I have always believed that there is a person out there for everyone and if Meg isn't that person for you then I guarantee you someone else is. I hope that you do find this person soon.
I cannot even describe to you how much it would mean if you could write back. I know you must be very busy turning people's ears into donkey ears and playing pranks on kings and such but if you could answer this letter, I'll send you an ENTIRE BOWL of my amazing salad.
You, my friend, will become an addict.
No, just kidding.
My letter to Ash ^-^ I posted it on my Facebook account. Hope there is no problem!ReplyDelete
Kisses, and AWESOME CONTEST! =D
My letter is for Puck.ReplyDelete
I like to thank him by the way for giving me the inspiration to create the most spine tingling, nerve rocking April Fools day prank of this year. The "inspiration" is still flowing up until now so Puck, cut it out ..it's no longer April fool's day. I do not want to get in trouble..
Here is the link to the letter ...
Thank you so much for the contest Julie! I wrote my letter to Grimalkin. Because he is amazing. And a cat.ReplyDelete
http://ciclovesbooks.blogspot.com/2011/04/dear-grimalkin.html (sorry about it being so long!)
Great writing! I want you to follow up to this topic!?!ReplyDelete
I love this contest! It's a great idea, and I really enjoyed myself. Here's my entry, a letter to Ash: http://tl.gd/9mttc8ReplyDelete
hmm...i don no were to post mine....oh well. ill come up wth it.ReplyDelete
Love it!! I posted this on my tumblr.ReplyDelete
Hey Julie, I posted mine on Goodreads, so hopefully that's okay. :) Great contest!!ReplyDelete
My letter to Grim is a Facebook note:ReplyDelete
this is my letter to puck 4 the contest!!!ReplyDelete
i was wondering why u waited so long to make a move on Megan? i mean u had her for like ever and u decide to make a move after she falls in love with a prince?!? r u crazy?! u r like way to slow man u could have had her to if u had like made a move sooner! my letter is pretty much just about how ur to slow but im also really curious to what color ash's underwear is and how u know what it is
i also posted this 2 goodreads :)
My letter to Razor is posted on my new blog.ReplyDelete
My letter is to Grimalkin, I found the most mysterious of all the characters so I was curious.ReplyDelete
I find you the most fascinating faery I have ever heard of. And the most mysterious.
So if you allow me I would like to get to know you a bit more. I will try to keep it short and to the point as I
know you find countless questions tedious and are easily bored so here it goes:
Where do u go when you vanish? The between or lets say your in the Nevernever do you go to our realm and vice versa?
Did you know about Meghan Chases' destiny all along or did you just follow her because she was interesting?
I always pictured you as something close to a Cheshire Cat like on Alice in Wonderland only without the the huge permanent
grin.(the newer Version) Are u like that or are u something else? Whats your favorite past time? Has Puck ever annoyed you to the point of you attacking him? Or you wanting to?
Well I won't keep you any longer as I am sure you have better things to do other listen to the countless
questions of a dull human such as myself. Hope to hear from you.
Yay! I finished my letter to Puck! He's getting tons, but I hope he likes mine!ReplyDelete
My email's actually in the letter, but here it is:
I love this contest! Thanks Julie!

Link to my blog where I wrote my letter: http://bondslave101.blogspot.com/2011/04/contest-time-dear-puck.html
Saying that I'm a fan would be an understatement, so I won't.
Go team Puck!
Letter for Ash.ReplyDelete
I have a letter for ash, my email: firstname.lastname@example.orgReplyDelete
Hi, how are you? Good luck on your quest thing in the Iron Knight; i'm totally cheering for you! SO is my sister she totally loves but my friend is team puck (don't worry i'll handle her XD). Anyway, Julie Kagawa, the woman who made me fall in love with fairies, is having this contest thing and we, the fans, have to write a letter to our favorite character. So I choose you! (obviously) You're incredible. It took you forever to make your move in the Iron King, though, but its okay because you totally made up for it later on. Anyway (again, sorry I take forver to get to the point) I just have one question. Do you really love Megan? Before you get angry and think this is a stupid question, let me explain! I think you do love her or you think you love her. Most of the time in the series I can tell you love her. You always act different around her and it's obvious you have feelings for her but I have this crazy nagging feeling that there's something else going one. In every book, Ariella (i think thats her name.... sorry i dont really care for her, except for the reason i'm going to explain) is mentioned. I don't like it. It's as if you only like Megan because she's like Ariella or different like with their stubborness. You said Megan is more stubborn then her. It's like your constantly comparing them. STOP IT! If your constantly comparing Megan to Ariella than you have no right to be with Megan. There has to be something about Megan you like that never made you think about Ariella at all. Because right now, I doubt your love for her despite everything, like maybe you did all that stuff because she makes you feel like Ariella did. I think you should feel the love because of Megan not because of Ariella.
Anyway that's like my main focus but I have a few other questions. Did you tell Ariella your real name? I love your real name! omg! I almost died when you told it to Megan. Do you really hate Puck? Even before you met Megan and softened up to him. I bet you even laugh at all his jokes! I know I do. Hehehe. How did it feel to betray your realm, the Winter Court? You seemed so willing. And how about Mab? Did you feel any remorse for her? Other than necessary remorse because, well, she's your mom. But you didn't appear to feel guilty for putting your mom through that. Maybe you thought she could handle it? I would believe that but she's a mother who lost all three of her sons in a short period of time. My ast question, I don't know if it's going to come up soon or something, but i'm curious. What's up with you and Rowan? You obviously hate him. Are you ever going to tell us (your many adoring fans) why you hate Rowan so much? Your reason for the rivalry is unclear and I'm dying to know what's going on with that. Feel free to tell me or at least say your going to reveal it in the next book or something. And here are a few other small questions: What is your favorite book? Favorite band or singer you listen to? Fav animal? fav book of all time? is blue your fav color?
Those are my questions and thoughts. I love you! Your great and fantastic and I luv your broodiness. Your encounters with Puck are downright hilarious. Your a total bad boy and that's awesome. I didn't introduce myself, so let me. I'm Amelia Martin, age 15, and I'm Team Ash! Woohooo!
Luv ya <3
I hate that my letter is going to be lost in the flood of Puck fans' adoration, but he's my favorite and really the only choice for me.... though I do love Ironhorse and Grim. Anyways, it's posted here...ReplyDelete
Please write back!!!
Dear Julie: Love the series! Hope you like my entry!ReplyDelete
I wanted to write my letter to Grim. But I'm kind of upset that Puck is getting so much more attention than Ash!!!!!! SO NOT COOL!ReplyDelete
So I'll be writing by letter to Ash.
Sorry Grim. Ya know I love ya!
Great work keep it coming, best blog on earthReplyDelete
Thanks for your letters, everyone! Want you to know that I (and the gang) ARE reading them, even if we can't comment on them all. Keep up the awesome work. :)ReplyDelete
Julie, I know you probably already read my letter, but I edited it a bit. I just added a paragraph somewhere in the middle, and some more pictures. Sorry if it's a bother! (I would totally get it if you decided not to reread)ReplyDelete
Here it is!
I chose Glitch, and posted it on facebook, but I'm not sure how to show the link so here's the best I could do: http://www.facebook.com/thehouseaiReplyDelete
I love the series, especially the care you've taken with the minor characters.

Hoping for a Winter prince to rescue me from dreary Louisiana (like Meghan),
My Dearest Robin...ReplyDelete
Hi Ms. Kagawa,ReplyDelete
I wrote my letter to Glitch. Thank you for the chance to get a signed copy of The Iron Queen.
Here is the link:
For starters you are one freaking amazing cat!
I'm writing this for a contest in hopes that you will respond. I truly believe in your awesome cat sith glamour. Anyways I'm going to start of this letter with a question that's been tugging at my mind for the past little while. Don't you have a family? Any siblings or perhaps a special someone your not telling us about? ( nudge nudge, wink wink!). If so or not ( :( ) where are they, and what happened to them? Another question I've been dying to ask is how do you decide who to make contracts with fey? Is it that you know each and everyone or do you use glamour of some kind? What kind of favors do you usually call on before you met Meghan? Also, have you ever called on any favors from Ice prince or oh so funny Puck? If so, what did you do for them in turn? One last question, what are your feelings toward Meghan, Ash and Puck?
Now, the reason why I choose to write to you is because I know a cat sith, but sadly she cannot talk to me, the way you probably could. And not like other fan girls, I am SO not interested in the colour of Puck and Ash's underpants. Alright I do have a sister who'd like to know. Also I enjoy your wisdom and humor throughout the series, and adimre your patience with dealing with the love birds. Personally I think you are one of the most amazing characters in this whole series, and I'd abousaluly love for you to write back to me and my awaiting friend, also a cat sith :)
Callista, your number 1 admirer and Sylvie, a cat sith
I am writing this in respond to a contest, in hopes that you will answer. First off, I'd like to ask you this; How did it feel to be killed by a half fey, a girl never the less! I mean I have nothing against Meghan, and Ash if your reading this, don't get too angry at me, you had her and weaker Ash in you grip, and you didnt put a stronger guard on her?! Or I dunno, get an iron fey to torture Ash untill she agreed?! I'm sorry I'd this sounds a little violent, but I believe that you could've done a bit more on your part to force her to be your wife! Anyways, another question I'd like answered is in the third book you help Meghan become the iron queen. Arn't you still upset with the fact that she killed you? And how did you know all that stuff about being the iron ruler. Did Ferrum tell you? And did you value the ironhorse as more then just you'd servant/helper horse?
One last thing I'd like to ask is this; What else happened in your past? Like when/how did you come to be? Did you have any friends?, how long did it take to become Ferrums righthand man? And did you over throw Ferrum for any other reasons, besides the fact that he was a weak ruler?
Well, in conclusion, I'd like to tell you that alright you leave me with a lot of questions, I choose you for the simple fact that I wanted to know more about you and not what colour undies Ash and Puck have. I enjoyed guessing when you pop up next and I thank you for the role you played in Meghans destiny. I hope that you'll find some time to answer my many blunt questions.
Waiting for a reply,
Yes! Finally I get to ask ash some very very embarrassing questions. :P
Hey! I have a cutting-it-close-to-the-deadline letter for Puck!ReplyDelete
My email's neorhapsody415 (at) yahoo (dot) com, if you need it.
:D thanks for hosting this awesome contest! I'm having a great time reading these letters!
PLEASE READ THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am facing a HUGE dilemma here!
At the start of April I read this competition and wanted to participate in it straight away, so I wrote my letter to Ash and posted it on my facebook page. Then (with the help of my brother) I posted the link on this page. Both my brother and I saw it go up- we even clicked on the link to check that it was the right one!- but now I cannot, for the life of me, find my post! I am freaking out because I have been waiting and waiting for the day you judge it, and today, I came here, just to check... and my post is gone!!!!!!!!!!!!
The link to my letter is: http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=106650536086934
I'm not sure what to do now. I don't even know if you will accept my entry, but I can swear that I did post my link (I even have a witness... if that counts for anything...?)
Please, please, please, please, PLEASE take my word for it!
I'm really sorry about bothering you, but I am full-on freaking out!
Thanks so much for entering and for writing such awesome, heartfelt letters. I'll be choosing a winner tomorrow, so stay tuned! :)
I wanna be Oen Pals with them both, but I would love to more be Pen Pals with Puck. <3ReplyDelete
