Dragon Friday: The BEA#14 Dragonhunt

Hey everyone!

Who's excited for BEA?  And if you are, who's ready for a dragonhunt?

This year, the dragons of TALON--Ember, Cobalt, and their mystery friend--are coming to Book Expo America!  They'll be prowling the Javits center, checking out new books and authors, hiding out in the crowds, and if you can find where they've been, you have a chance to win a signed arc of TALON, plus one of the dragons themselves.

So, dragon hunter, to catch yourself a dragon, here is what you'll need to do:

1. On the Thursday and Friday of BEA (May 29th and 30th), check this blog ( for pictures of the dragons hanging out around the Javits Center.

2. Figure out where they've been.  You might need to track down the spot yourself, or you might know exactly where it is.  Write down your answers.  There will be three pictures, one picture for each dragon, per day, so that's six locations in all.

3.  Mail your answers to  Text only. No pictures needed.  Example: if you know the dragon has been sitting in the Hachette booth, just list "Hachette booth" as one of your answers and you'll be golden.

The pictures will remain on the site until Sunday, June 1st but the contest itself will continue until Friday, June 6th, so you'll have plenty of time to get your answers in.

However, the first person to correctly email all the answers will receive the Grand Prize, as seen below. Two other prize winners will be chosen at random from the correct entries.  Winners will be announced June 8th on the blog.


Two winners will receive a handmade, one of a kind polymer clay dragon in the likeness of a TALON character (Ember, Cobalt, or mystery dragon).  These figurines have been handcrafted by myself specifically for the contest, sealed with protective gloss, and initialed on the bottom.

One Grand prize winner will receive a handmade dragon character and a signed arc of TALON.

That's it!  See you all at BEA in a couple weeks.  Go forth, hunters, and find yourself a dragon.
