The week has arrived, ladies and gentlemen: the launch of my debut YA sci-fi/fantasy, WORDLESS, out from Flux Books this very Friday, the 8th!
In preparation and celebration, I had character portraits done of five of the main characters in WORDLESS by the inimitable Corinne Duyvis, fellow debut YA fantasy author and amazing fine artist. To make the big reveal more interactive, I’ve come up with a little giveaway… and a guessing game!
The game: Every day this week, I’m revealing one of the five character portraits–but without the character’s name! But I’m providing clues for you: for example, four of the characters are Words with a special sort of power (often elemental… but not always), and one isn’t. I’ve also given you another clue already: these are the five most major characters in the book. Also, the portraits themselves contain clues–perhaps note the shirt colors? So, either by your powers of deduction, or reading the book, you can enter by answering various questions about their identities. Or you can enter by spreading word of the giveaway!
The prizes (which are also clues): Each character portrait comes with an equal-value prize that matches that character, plus a poster of all five character portraits and other WORDLESS swag, including a black silicone bracelet like those in the book, a signed bookplate, and signed bookmarks. By studying the character-themed prizes, you might have a better idea of who is who…
Without further ado… Character Portrait #1!
Isn’t he awesome? (All credit to Corinne!)
Now let the guessing begin! Enter in the Rafflecopter below. Feel free to wait on your guessing until you’ve seen all the characters–but please, spread the word! All winners will be announced August 16th.
