Ensnared Countdown Widget

Lots of lovely bloggers have been asking where to get an Ensnared countdown widget.

I've tried to find a counter with a drop box to hold the HTML, but have had no luck. So, highlighted below is the HTML for the widget located on my side bar.

It should work on most blogs using a gadget feature.

****UPDATE 11/26/14****

My publisher has decided to move the launch of Ensnared up by a full week, which means everyone gets to read it seven days earlier! :) YAY!

So, the countdown widget has changed. Below is the new HTML with the updated launch date:

 #cntdwn {background:url( no-repeat 0 0;
  color:#eaeaea !important;
 font-family: Palatino Linotype, Book Antiqua, Palatino, serif !important;
  padding:0px 20px 200px;
  text-align:center;  }
<script language="JavaScript">
TargetDate = "01/06/2015 12:01 AM";
BackColor = "transparent";
ForeColor = "#FFFFFF !important";
CountActive = true;
CountStepper = -1;
LeadingZero = true;
DisplayFormat = "%%D%% Days, %%H%% Hours, %%M%% Minutes, %%S%% Seconds.";
FinishMessage = "Available Now";
<script language="JavaScript" src=""></script>

Thanks everyone for helping me get the word out!


  1. Yay! I'm rereading now in anticipation... Not too much longer but it feels like an eternity (probably more so for you than me, though). ๐Ÿ˜

    1. Hi Brandy! Thanks for rereading! And it doesn't feel like an eternity to me at all. In fact, it feels like it's getting here to fast. I have so much I need to do to get ready for the launch. LOL. Can't wait to share it with everyone!

    2. Just a quick heads up (in case you get notifications of replies) the launch date has been moved up by a week, so I've posted the updated version. :)

    3. You (and your publisher) have just made my Monday worth getting up. lol :)

      I wasn't thinking about all the stuff you have to do for a launch. That makes sense that it would be super stressful/exciting/fun but not feel like enough time to get it all in.

    4. Oh! And the countdown is on my blog now! Woo-hoo. It's the first countdown I've posted, so I wanted to make sure it worked before I said I put it there. :)

    5. Thank you so much, Brandy! And right? These next two months will be a whirlwind. Guaranteed. :)

  2. Thanks to you! I read Splintered and Unhinged a while ago and, in my opinion, they are two of the best books I've read this year. I really can't wait for Ensnared. I just hope they don't make us wait too long for its translation here in Spain. :)
    PS: I've already installed the countdown in my blog and it works! ^-^

    1. Thanks so much for posting the widget! BTW, the date has been moved up by a week, so I've posted the updated version now. :)
