The White Rabbit is Out of the Bag!


 
Let's take a moment to drool over this ADORABLE picture!!! Awwww. I just love bunnies. (◕‿◕)
 
And onto the post!
 
I've been keeping a sekrit for several months because I was under strict instructions not to tell. BUT, the rabbit squirmed its way out of the bag on Monday when Publisher's Weekly posted their Fall Preview Sneak Peak (click on image below to enlarge):


What does this mean? First, of course, there is a SPLINTERED sequel in the making, and it's called UNHINGED. It's scheduled to be released January 2014.
 
Second, it means a giveaway, because anyone who follows my blog knows how much I love to give things away! 
 
Since I'm not allowed to offer a blurb for the book yet, and I have to leave you in the dark about it's premise, I'm going to have prizes that play a role in the story somehow, so that later when you read UNHINGED, you'll say to yourself: "Oh, so that's where this comes in."
 
One last thing: The contest will begin this Friday (March 1), will be INTL, and will run for a whole month! Stop back Friday for details and for a peek at the six SPLINTERED/UNHINGED related prizes I'll be offering.
 
Thanks for being so patient while my blog has been in hiatus! Hopefully soon I can clear some of the cobwebs away. Have a wonderful rest of the week, and see you Friday!

    1. LOL! WOW. Longest comment evah. I'm sorry you have to wait so long! It takes a while to get all the edits done, and a book cover made, then the formatting and printing, etc... ;) Something tells me you'll get to read it before the masses though. That's something, right? ;)

      Delete
    2. LOL mainly because of the "..." and line breaks. XD And MEEP. There should be a 5 easy steps to creating a book or something lol! Then us readers wouldn't be tortured so much. Seriously. We're like, #1 most endangered subrace of humans.

      And lol, it's possible I may manage to beg an ARC...or I'll be a ninja. If someone breaks into your house with a ninja outfit on, do not shoot. I know it's the Texas way, but DO NOT SHOOT.

    3. Haha! I think it's my hubbie you have to worry about in the shoot first ask questions later category, but I promise to run interference...unless I'm sleeping. Hee

    4. O_O This is dangerous. THE THINGS I'D DO FOR THIS BOOK.

      Well. If I give you a warning, will you stay up and make sure I don't get shot? LOL. I don't think that'd be very enjoyable.

  24. Dude. Just copy and paste EVERYTHING Nikki just said up there, only replaces Morpheus and Morph with Jeb OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

    I'M FEELING ALL THE FANGIRLY RIGHT HERE.

    *CAN YOU FEEL MY FANGIRLING?*

    Probably not, since this is a really dull comment but seriously....UNHINGED! YOU ARE LEAVING US UNHINGED WITH THE EXCITEMENT OF A SEQUEL!

    I DO REALIZE I'VE PROBABLY USED UNHINGED WRONG. BUT OH WELL!

    So. Excited.

  28. YES YES YES YES YES!!!

    I knew when I saw your message in Goodreads, I just KNEW there had to be a sequel. (Or at least another new book!) I am soooo excited! I can't believe you knew for months and just tortured all of us who are begging for a sequel! :) But anyway, I'm just sooo happy that there will be one! And the titled- UNHINGED just sounds so eerie and I know it will fit the book perfectly!

    You've made my day, and I can't wait for it! I can fangirl all day long! More Wonderland! More Alyssa! More Jeb and Morpheus!!!!

    10 more months and counting!!! :)

  32. A sequel!!! I'm so glad, it's always great to see Wonderland re-writes, especially ones like this that really capture the spirit of Wonderland. Also. Morpheus. MORPHEUS.

    I'm rooting for you moth man, may you continue being as creepy and fantastic as every. For you have fangirls that adore you and are supporting you each step (flutter?) of the way.
