To celebrate finally being done with my frumious (albeit necessary) line edits, I'm sharing some Unhinged teasers and having a giveaway! And yes, it's INTL.
|Let the futterwacken-ing BEGIN!|
First, the Unhinged teasers:
Throughout book 2, Alyssa's Wonderland key and a keyhole heart locket are symbolic of a battle she has to face:

Several more Carrollian elements are brought to light, including:
What exactly is tulgey wood?What are the looking glass insects, really?
The meaning behind the following two lines of the Jabberwocky poem will be revealed:
All mimsy were the borogoves,And the mome raths outgrabe.
Odds are, it's a bit scarier than you think ... (◕‿◕)
Also, this verse from Lewis Carroll's Prologue to Alice poem plays a huge role in the book:
A childish story take,And with a gentle hand,Lay it where Childhoood's dreams are twinedIn Memory's mystic band...
Assorted Unhinged tidbits:
Morpheus has a new hat, and the moths are more than just decorative.Morpheus and Alyssa have an intense moment in the midst of a raging fire.Jeb's artwork catches the attention of a mysterious and beautiful art collector, but is his art really the only thing she's interested in?Alyssa and Jeb bond while taking a magical train ride.Alyssa's mother returns home from the asylum.
Alyssa learns the truth about her mother's past, and the secrets her mother has kept could prove to be Alyssa's undoing.
And, last but not least, Alyssa has a new artistic medium for her mosaics. It's even more morbid, and creepier, than the bug art.
