Beautiful Creatures Contest & Links

Links of Importance: con_or_bust is a fundraiser to assist people of color who want to attend WisCon. Bidding on the auction will run from Wednesday, February 22, 2010 (12:01 a.m. Eastern), through Saturday, March 13, 2010 (11:59 p.m. Eastern). You may post auction offers and make donations now. I have made a donation, and wish I could think of something to auction off besides, you know, my liver. Which given that it's an Irish liver, probably would not fetch that high a price...

Links of Enjoyment: I may have discovered a new favourite hobby: watching vids for my book. They have reduced me to incoherent glee. I have forced all my friends to watch them and begged them to help me choose.

Check out these links to the lovely lists of fic, vids and art so far in the Demon's Covenant contest - everyone, you all being so talented is making choices very difficult for me! Contest runs on until February 26th.

Links of Winning a Very Cool Thing: Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the authors of BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, are on their way to Seattle, Chicago & the Bay area for the second leg of their book tour. They are hosting a special contest in honour of the tour, and I'm part of it. The winner of the BEAUTIFUL CREATURES: Unlock the Curse Contest will win the magical object that brought Ethan and Lena together in the novel... Genevieve's locket. (Kami made this herself!)






Information from DEMON'S LEXICON will be used to solve one of the clues to unlock a challenge in the contest. Here is the complete list authors participating in the contest and their books, in the order in which the clues will be given:

WICKED LOVELY by Melissa Marr
TITHE by Holly Black
CITY OF BONES by Cassandra Clare
SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater
THE DEMON'S LEXICON by Sarah Rees Brennan
RAMPANT by Diana Peterfreund.

A most excellent list, is it not? I am honoured to be in such company, and also honoured as I think Beautiful Creatures is a rad book. And I thought you guys who have read Demon's Lexicon (and are thus my favourite people in the world) might like to have a heads-up that you could win booty with your learnings.

So come back to this blog to find a clue that will help unlock one of the six challenges, and good luck Unlocking the BEAUTIFUL CREATURES Curse!

Not A Link, But A Question: I was glad the February cookie was well liked! For the March cookie from Demon's Covenant, let me know what you guys might like to see. Minor characters, major characters, action scenes, make-out scenes, flashbacks, whatever: I aim to please.
