Free arcs, gift certificates, and swag ... Oh, MY!


Yay! I'm so glad you're here on the Splintered stop of the YAmazing Race with MGnificent prizes -- a crazy whirlwind blog hop featuring over 50 debut authors and prize packs featuring ARCs, gift certificates, swag, and more!

Want a sneak peek into the prize vault? Here's what I tossed (or gently dropped, rather) into the gift pile:

Lady’s bronze vintage locket/pocket watch inspired by the White Rabbit's watch

If you haven’t yet been to the Apocalypsies website, please click here to start from the beginning and read the complete rules. There are links there to take you to each leg of the race, so you'll find your way back to me all in good time.

Those of you who already followed the yellow brick road of blogs, onward with the race!

Since my book cover is still in the design phases, below is the synopsis which offers the answer to one of the questions you'll be asked in the quiz at the end of this leg of the race. Remember, you must complete ALL FIVE quizzes (one at the end of each leg) to be eligible for a prize pack:

Splintered by A.G. Howard:

For sixteen years, Alyssa Gardner has lived with the stigma of being descended from Alice Liddell -- the real life inspiration for Lewis Carroll's famed novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. But cruel jokes about dormice and tea parties can’t compare to the fact that Alyssa hears the whispers of bugs and flowers ... the same quirk which sent her mother to a mental institution years before.

When her mother takes a turn for the worse and the whispers grow too strong for Alyssa to bear, she seeks the origins of their family curse. A set of family heirlooms and a moth tied to an eerie website lead Alyssa and her gorgeous best friend / secret crush, Jeb, down the rabbit hole into the real Wonderland, a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on.

There, creepy and violent counterparts of the original fairytale crew reveal the purpose for Alyssa’s journey, and unless she fixes the things her great-great-great grandmother Alice put wrong, Wonderland will have her head.

WAIT! Before you go – there's a **bonus contest** for my readers to win this:

Set of  6 Alice in Wonderland gift tags/bookmarks from

  12. Love your synopsis. I will definitely add it to my Goodreads shelf. I followed your blog.

  13. I remember reading Alice In Wonderland when I was in middle school. I have held a deep fascination since. I cannot wait to read this book.

    I tweeted:!/sarakovach/status/158999007677530112

    and posted to facebook:

    What a great book trailer too.

  17. I can't even tell you how excited I am for this book, Anita :D I just know it'll blow me away.

  18. Oh my god, how did I not comment on the Morpheus post? He sounds amazing, totally swoon-worthy. I loves me some arrogant men who have the goods to back it up, and it sounds like he's definitely got the goods. Ahem. The wings acting as, shock, horror, an extention of his body is something I haven't seen much of while reading stories with fairies/faeries/fey in them. And you know I adore Alyssa's quirks.

    I mean, stop me if this gets creepy, but I could seriously scoop out your brain and eat it like tasty ice cream. It.. got creepy, didn't it?

  19. Bethany (aka rookstar)~ YUM

    Sophia~ LOL! Nah, not too creepy. Flattering, actually. Which makes me equally as morbid as you. What could we expect from Goblin sistahs? Heh. BTW, Bethany (my crit pal up above) could tell you a thing or two about Morpheus. The man knows how to use his wings. She tried soooo hard to hate him, but just couldn't shake off her lust. HEH

    Lori~ YAY! I hope so much that you love it! :)

    Jessica~ Thank you! I know I've seen you around here a few times... I think I've visited your blog a few times, too? LOL. You're in the drawing, girl.

    Everyone else, nice to meet you and good luck on the race! You're all in the drawing. :)

    I would LOVE to be added to the giveaway hat! Those bookmarks are TO DIE for, that locket is beautiful and who wouldn't love a personalized bookplate for their very own copy of Splinter?

    I am SO looking forward to reading this book!!
    Thanks for the outstanding offers and Best of Luck with your book!
