Where Am I? Wrap up and Winner!

Posted by on Oct 12, 2017 in Uncategorized | 34 comments

I have to say how very impressed I am with the quality of your responses for this contest! 17 of you got full points – every single one correct! And another 10 missed only one guess. There were many other entrants not far behind, and even when your guess was incorrect, you still named a place thatĀ could have been it. Great job! In order, here are the locations: Decatur, (DeKalb County) Georgia Nashville, Tennessee Columbus, South Carolina Salt Lake City, Utah San Francisco, California Bridal Veil Falls, Provo, Utah St. Louis, Missouri...

Okay, no clues. Just my wishes of good luck! This will be the final “Where Am I” post and the contest will close in one week, on Oct 11. If there is more than one point winner, I will randomly draw a name. But no matter who wins, there will be more giveaways for THE TRAITOR’S GAME over the next couple of months, I promise!  ...

Where Am I? Stop #9!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted a new photo, but there’s been a lot happening this week, including an awesome meeting with my publisher to discuss the marketing plans for THE TRAITOR’S GAME. They have some amazing ideas and I think you’re going to love being able to tell your friends that you were one of the first to hear about this book. Maybe even to win a galley copy! Which leads us to the 9th post on where I am. No clues because this image is pretty iconic so if you don’t already know it, you...

Where Am I? Stop #8!

No clues here because there are other ways to find out where I am! I thought there’d be three posts this week, but didn’t get a good photo in one, so the next post will be in another week or so. To pass the time, I hope you’ve got a fantastic book to read! I am about 70% of the way through a first draft on TRAITOR’S GAME 2 and working on copyedits for RESISTANCE, due out in a year. More on that book to come!  ...

This silver tree is outside a rather saintly museum in the city where I was just visiting. Do you know where it is? I hope so, because I’m getting very excited to give away this galley of THE TRAITOR’S GAME! If you’re just discovering this blog, it’s not to late to start over at #1 and enter. The next entry will probably come within 1-2 days. No one knows how they’re doing for sure, so keep entering! THE TRAITOR’S GAME will be released on Feb 27, 2018. Right now, I am writing the first draft of book 2, so I...

Okay, I know this is a hard one, but I’m not giving location details since the city part of this beautiful canyon was on my public signing schedule (Sept 16 at 2 pm). However, if you need a clue to get started, this is a “wedding-themed” waterfall. Good luck! The next update will come sometime in the next few days and there will be a total of three this week (Crazy, I know!) There are several players still with the total number of possible points, and remember, at the end of ten stops, I will give away a galley copy of THE...

There are still many players with full points possible, so this picture might be a test for them, or allow those who are a few points behind to catch up! I will say this is one of my favorite cities – so much beauty here! The next update will come over the weekend. And we are now halfway through with the contest to win an ARC of THE TRAITOR’S GAME! Good luck to...

DEADZONE Release Day!

Posted by on Sep 12, 2017 in Uncategorized | 15 comments

It’s here! It’s finally here – DEADZONE releases today! This is Book 2 of the HORIZON series begun by Scott Westerfeld, which tells the story of a group of young survivors of a plane crash who quickly realize they are somewhere very unlike the earth they thought they knew. You can see the trailer for that HERE. In DEADZONE, they must cross a blood red sand to get closer to what they believe is a chance for rescue, but slithering beneath the surface are predatory sand grabbers. Above the surface, it’s even worse: launch...

Let me answer a few questions from the comments: There is no significance to how I block out your answer. If it posts, I got your entry. I wish I could confirm if your guess is correct, but if I do, that wouldn’t be fair to the others who enter. Some pictures will be harder than others, but remember, it’s the highest point total over all ten pictures, so keep entering! Now for the picture below, can you figure out where this bookshop might be? The next picture will post mid-week. While you wait, if you haven’t read the first...

Hmm…where might a banner like this be found? Enter your guess for city (4 pts) and state (1 pt)! At the end of ten guesses, the person with the most points wins a copy of the first book of my new series, THE TRAITOR’S GAME. If you loved The False Prince, I think you’ll love this one too! The next post will be early next week....
