It's time for a contest!

To help kick off the run of summer fun, I'm hosting a fan fiction contest for Tarragon: Key Keeper. This will be open to everyone, just as I promised.

Here's how it'll work.

There are three categories:

Fan Art: Any art created using traditional means to create/depict characters, themes, ideas, from my book.

Fan Fiction: Any written means used to create/depict characters, themes, or ideas from my book

Fan Crafts: Any means used to create something crafty (plushies, sculptures, or similar) using themes, characters, or ideas from my book.

Entries will be accepted through June 15th, after which, a period will be opened for voting from the general public. All votes will be counted towards deciding the winners of each category.

Prizes in each category include:
1st: Dragon Plushie
2nd: Dragon pendant
3rd: Key chain/bookmark combo

All entries must be family friendly, nothing crude. If you wouldn't want a five-year-old to see it, please don't enter it. All entries must be sent to no later than midnight of June 15, 2016.

Everyone is eligible to enter, but those under 18 years of age must have parent permission to enter. Any information gathered will be used solely for the contest. Winners will be contacted once the final vote has been taken (minus any tie-breakers) We reserve the right to post/share depictions of any entries for promotional purposes.

Happy Mother's Day!

I know this one's going out a bit late, but Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, step-mothers, foster mothers, and anyone who acts as a surrogate mother, be it fur baby (like me), or human baby. You guys are amazing!

And for everything else, I just wanted to give a quick update as to what's going on this month.

If you didn't know, I released a new book last month, Tarragon: Key Keeper. All this month, the ebook version will be 1.99 US. This sale ends May 31st. So get your copy before it goes back up. 
For those who won anything from the book launch party, or the blog tour, your prize is either on the way, or will soon be on the way. (I got some of the info in the middle of a crazy week so I'm playing catch-up there. Sorry about that.) I thought it really cool to see so many international people entered. Love it!
 I hope you will all enjoy my book as much as I still enjoy reading it. Because, I do reread it. A lot.

For those who don't know, I also write Fan Fiction. Yep. When I'm not editing (which I probably should be doing), or voice acting/directing, I write fan fiction. My latest? Big Hero 6. If you haven't seen this movie, you are so missing out. But if you want to read my story, check me out on Wattpad. Share the love and all that jazz.

Speaking of Fan created stuff, in the month of June, I want to have a Fan Art Contest! That's right! I"m giving you all a head's up so you can get a going on this! After all, who wouldn't want to win some cool swag? 
I'm still working on details for this, but it would help you out a lot if you read my book in advance. I promise I'll let you know rules, etc, by the end of this month so you can get going on that. But I did want to give you the head's up that this is happening.

And now that I've done just that, I"ll release you back to your regularly scheduled day. Hope it's a good one!
