"Get UNHINGED" Giveaway!

Closeup of Splintered cover by Joni Andersen
 
YAY! A Splintered sequel, titled Unhinged, is in the making and is due to launch January 2014 from Amulet Books.

I originally wrote Splintered with a second book in mind, but I didn't know if the sequel would ever be given a chance. Because of the wonderful Splintered fans and readers, I get to continue the story!

So to thank you all, here's that huge INTL giveaway I promised!

As far as details for the second book, all I can offer for now is:

Alyssa kicks bootie. And Chessie's there along with other Wonderlandians (the good, the bad, and the creepy). OH, and then there's Jeb and Morpheus ... *swoons*.

Here's the short and sweet of the giveaway:

Since I'm not allowed to offer an actual blurb for the book yet, several of the following prizes play a role in the sequel somehow. Later when you read Unhinged, you'll be able to decipher how each puzzle piece fits.

First Prize: Personalized / Signed Splintered hardback + key necklace


Second Prize: Signed 18X24 Splintered poster
 

Third Prize: 4x6" Pop art print: Rabbit on the Bridge
Signed by the artist and ready to frame
(Unhinged clue: a bridge in London )

 
Fourth Prize: Silver Heart and Key Locket Necklace
(Unhinged clue: a heart pendant tangled with a key)
 
 
 
Fifth Prize: Set of 6 THE CORPSE BRIDE Decorated Bottle Caps
(Unhinged clue: The Corpse Bride's wardrobe)
 

Sixth Prize: Splintered Swag Pack

There's a rafflecopter provided below. The contest runs through the entire month of March. I'll announce winners the first week of April. Good luck everyone, and thanks again for making the second book a reality and for helping me celebrate the frabjous news!

  31. I am So incredibly excited for this book. The first one is absolutely Amazing and I'm sure this one will be just as good, if not better.
    My favorite character in Splintered is Morpheus but in the original story is the Cheshire Cat.
    Also, I have never read a story that made me Instantly want to draw the characters before, but that is what happened when I read this. I definitely plan on drawing them at some point.

    1. OH, if you ever draw them, please send them my way so I can put them up over here: http://anita-authoraghoward.blogspot.com/p/the-splintering-of-wonderland_7.html

  44. I really can't tell you how excited I am for this sequel. You MUST know my enthusiasm as the first thing I did after finishing Splintered was ask you if there would be another book coming!! I have always loved the Cheshire Cat because you know..he's a cat...but The Mad Hatter was also a favorite of mine. I am excited to hear more about Chessie in book 2..also I am going to cop out and say, OH, MORPHEUS!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have to say that I loved the original Alice...her gumption, even when she was terrified...I love that Alyssa has the same determination! She will make her way through Wonderland...even if it might kill her...

  64. I can't choose dark or light right now. I hate that I don't hate Morpheus. I want to. But I love Jeb... and Morpheus. I'm tied there. However, from a mother's perspective I think I love her mom, too. The sacrifices she made to protect her family.
    I've never read the original, but I loved the idea of the Cheshire Cat. :)
    Thanks for the chance to win... I just finished Splintered and it's on my favorites list now! :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. My "favorite" - actually most memorable character from Alice in wonderland is the Queen. Thank you for the inernational giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  77. YESS ANITA!!!! I know you'd be able to make it!! xD All those persuasive emails of mine were finally put to good use!Lol!! Anyway,my favourite SPLINTERED character,as you're already aware of,is Jeb. <3

    ReplyDelete
  78. You simply did the best job creating these characters. I have been in a "book slump" recently where every book I pick up has been pretty disappointing and Splintered completing lifted me from the slump!

    I would say that my most favorite character in the series thus far would have to be Morpheus. I love Al and Jeb, but Morpheus is so very dynamic and wonderful. Plus, I always route for the underdog. ;)

    Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!

    xo,

  79. My favorite character from the original Alice is probably the Cheshire Cat. Morpheus is definitely my favorite from Splintered, he's deliciously frustrating.

    ReplyDelete
  80. In Alice that would be Mad Hatter :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. In Splintered, it's definitely Alyssa. Period.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland!

    ReplyDelete
  83. My favorite character is definitely Morpheus. I loved how confusing and twisted he was and how he seemed to struggle with himself to do the right thing. Even after everything he did, I had to believe that he truly loved Alyssa. And as much as I love Jeb's loyalty, I have to hope that she ends up with Morpheus! This story honestly inspired me to continue writing my own stories because I wanted to create characters that were as life-like as the ones in Splintered. I am so ecstatic to find out that there is a sequel. I can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I haven't read Splintered (I know, I'm a loser) but in Alice, of course it's the Mad Hatter!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I am so upset that I haven't read Splintered so I could tell you about my favourite Splintered character, but I can tell you that my favourite Alice in Wonderland character is The Mad Hatter. It was an amazing character and I simply loved it for his words, behaviour and it was really funny.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Thanks for the amazing giveaway! I'm so happy there is going to be a sequel!!!

    I'd always loved the Walrus and the Carpenter when I was younger reading Alice. Now that I have Splintered, I get to fantasize about Jeb AND Morpheus..mmmmm!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Morpheus! Definitely Morpheus!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Morpheus is my favorite character!! He's just too perfect!!! *swoon* Thanks sooo much for doing a giveaway!! i'm super excited to read more!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. My favorite character was definitely Morpheus, initially I was a little weary of him just because of his name that harkened me straight back to the Matrix but quickly he won me over and I was swooning over every scene he was in =D

    ReplyDelete
  90. I still haven't read Splintered but I can't wait! So my favorite character from Alice in Wonderland is the Mad Hatter!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I want to read this book! I've been saving up to get a copy~

    ReplyDelete
  92. Even with all his issues I choose Morpheus...even though sometimes I couldn't stand him, though I figure any character to really get your emotions going is def a good one.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Absolutely adored Morpheus:) Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!:)

    ReplyDelete
  94. Mad Hatter is my favorite character in Alice in Wonderland. And also Cheshire Cat.

  96. hahahaha i am already reading unhinged. my friend in America recommended 'splintered' and i fell in love with the book! i LOVE Morpheus and have a feeling my sketchbook is going to be filled with him. PLEASE can Morpheus and Alyssa get together in the next book. me and my friend both agree on this, Jeb is a bit unstable and two faced, whereas Morpheus always does things for a reason and cannot be blamed for his ways, he did grow up in Wonderland! if i had Morpheus and Wonderland i would snatch both of them without a doubt in my mind! love ti keep writing and I'll keep reding!
