Splintered Cover Reveal GIVEAWAY!!!

Sorry, no poetry today because...

IT'S HERE! My beautiful book cover has arrived! And I could not be any more beholding to my editor Maggie Lehrman, my cover designer Maria Middleton, and the mystical / melancholy artistry of the lovely Nathalia Suellen (aka Lady Symphonia) for creating a cover that not only captures Splintered's eerie yet sometimes kooky mood, but also highlights the bugs, flowers, and vines that play such a pivotal role in the storyline.

If you've found your way over from the fabulous Krazy Book Lady's blog, you've already had a glimpse of the cover. If you haven't been there yet, hop over and let me know what you think!

To celebrate this frabjous day, I'm giving away a gift package. (Soon I'll actually have Splintered books and bookmarks to put up for grabs, but it's a little early for that yet.)

Today, we'll stick with Lewis Carroll goodies. One lucky first place winner will get this Alice-themed bundle:

White Rabbit Jounal

Set of 5 White Rabbit Bookmarks/Gift Tags

Personalized / Autographed Bookplate for Splintered 

And eleven second-place winners will each get a personalized-signed bookplate like the one above.

That's a total of twelve winners. And yes, this giveaway is *INTERNATIONAL*, so spread the word...

Using the rafflecopter below, there are only two things you have to do:

1. Answer an easy question about the book cover (have to make sure you actually saw it, right?) (◕‿-)

2. Either tweet the cover reveal, or share it on Facebook.

Two points will get your name in the drawing.  The giveaway ends Friday morning at 12a.m. I'll be announcing the winners later that day right here.

Thanks so much for sharing this thrilling experience with me, and I hope you win some goodies!
