Splintered Secrets Revealed = BIG PRIZES for you!

It's been too long since I've had a giveaway of MAD proportions, and I've decided the month of October, with all of its ghoulish glories, is the perfect time to have one. 
So welcome to my Unlock the Secrets to Splintered Giveaway! (And yes, it's International!)
Maybe some of you have seen the Splintered ARC and key necklace images floating around twitter and on book reviewer blogs?

Well, those tags on the necklaces direct recipients to visit this link, my publisher's official landing page for our Unlock the Secrets to Splintered campaign.

Here are the five steps to unlocking Splintered:

  • September: Unlock the Music...
  • October: Unlock the Madness Within...
  • November: Unlock Creativity...
  • December: Unlock Chrismakkuh...
  • January: Unlock Alyssa's Wonderland...

At the first of each month, a virtual key will be provided on the landing page, opening up one secret. September and October are already opened, so be sure to stop by and check out those mysteries.

Also, be sure to visit the landing page often and pay close attention, because there will be some big giveaways in the upcoming months, along with some frabjous interactive activities.

Here's just a sample of what's up for grabs in the not-so-distant future:

10 SIGNED Splintered advanced reading copies, an abundance of Splintered and Alice swaggery (including jewelry, posters, playing cards, assorted Alice books, and the list goes on...), 10 SIGNED Splintered hardbacks.

BUT, let's talk about what's up for grabs in *today's* giveaway.

1. First Place: 5-first place winners will receive a SIGNED Splintered ARC.

2. Second Place: 1-second place winner will receive: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: "Open Me for Curiouser and Curiouser Surprises" with illustrations by Harriet Castor.

This book is gorgeous! And here are just a few of the extra features that set it apart from the pack:

  • A pull-tab that makes Alice grow and grow
  • A pop-up courtroom scene
  • Doors on flaps that open to show an assortment of curious objects
  • A special tab that makes the Cheshire Cat magically disappear
  • An attached Mushroom Booklet that helps Alice return to normal size
3. Third Place: 1-third place winner gets to choose one of these pictures from my fan art page, printed with a matching excerpt from the book. (No worries, each of the pictures were given to me by the artists to use as I please--thank you lovelies!). Click on the pictures to enlarge.
