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 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.

Super Sekrit Series hint #4 and CONTEST announcement

Little behind on posting this, apologies!  But here is Super Sekrit series hint #4!


This week its a double guessing game.  First, you have to name that saint, pictured above.  THEN, if you are able to discern his name, you have to figure out where he fits within the series.

Fun, fun.  Ooh, and if you're completely stumped, Page Turner's blog has some lovely hints to help you guess.  And YA Interrobang has a list of all the clues up until now.

So, while you're figuring that out, here is another piece of exciting news.

Next week will be the very last clue, and there will also be a CONTEST and giveaway to celebrate the reveal of the Super Sekrit series on October 2nd.  If you want to know what the contest and giveaway will entail, you'll have to check back next week for the final clue.  The contest will last only a week, and then on the 2nd, the Super Sekrit Series will FINALLY be revealed.

Until then, guess away, and I'll see you all next week for the last clue.

Zombie Dragons

A few more Halloween pics.  Just because I had so much fun figuring out how to make a zombie unicorn.  Zombiecorn?  Whatever it was, it was fun.

And here's a zombie dragon to go with it.

A little Halloween colored dragon with a skull.

And my favorite.  Count Vlad Dragoncula!

Ah, too fun.  These little guys will be up for sale in October, so keep an eye out on the Etsy store.  Also, I nearly have the Iron Fey gang in their group costume, too.  Just missing Grimalkin.  Let's just say you WILL see Ash in a bunny suit.  ;)

Through The Zombie Glass tour stop

I have the great pleasure of hosting today's stop for Gena Showalter's Through the Zombie Glass!

So, let's meet the characters of Through the Zombie Glass, shall we?  Everyone, please give a warm welcome to Cole Holland and Alice Bell!

Cole Holland is the ultimate bad boy.  He leads a group of zombie slayers, and it’s his way, or the “you had better move, because you’re about to be mowed down” highway.  He is smart, gorgeous, and there is no better Z-killer.  He isn’t afraid of a challenge, he’s made more slays than anyone in his crew, and he’s always the first to rush headlong into danger.  His motto: I’d rather go down swinging than stand back and stay safe.

Alice Bell is the proverbial fish out of water.  She lost her parents and beloved little sister in a car crash, and has been thrust in the middle of a war between humans and spirit zombies.  She is fierce, brave, and has a smart mouth. She’s learning to use super-speed, as well as how to project her own spirit from her body to fight the Z’s at a moment’s notice…all while combating the darkness growing inside her.  Her motto: I will avenge my family…or die trying.
