Last Chance to Win Scavenger Hunt Swag!

thekelpie_front_onlyLast Chance to Win Scavenger Hunt Swag!

Thank you everyone who participated in my Cover Reveal Scavenger Hunt–whether you posted a piece or were hunting through to win one of the awesome prizes!

If you haven’t yet entered, let me remind you of what’s up for grabs:

Prize 1:

A beautiful oval fused glass necklace on an antique backing featuring a kelpie–or, well, a scary looking black horse.  It matches the MacArthur tartan, color wise! Made by Renee of Stained Glass Creations!

Prize 2:

More beauty + jewelry! A necklace featuring Vic Caswell’s actual art of the kelpie in a beautiful setting by Art by Stefanie.

Prize 3:

For the non-jewelry inclined: An 11×6 poster of the cover art, signed by the author and artist, plus a set of trading cards based on the scavenger hunt pieces–the characters featured on the cover!

 

How do you play?  Go to the various blogs below and collect the words from the novel excerpts within each of the posts!  To make it extra easy, here are the permalinks with the words you need to collect:

Besides catching the awesome art and some sneak-peaks at the novel, some of my hosts have written their own messages about the novel, about some of the topics in the novel, and (thank you, Laura), about their experience editing the novel.  Take a little time to look around these blogs; you may enjoy what else they offer!

Happy Hunting!
