Get ready for a Poe-Stravaganza!!!!

Updated- everyone who enters my upcoming Masque contest will get a signed bookplate and a bookmark if they still need one!  

To celebrate the release of Masque of the Red Death, I'm going to be celebrating all through April, with guest posts about Poe's artistic influence, give-aways, contests, and other exciting stuff.

Right now I'm giving away some of my GORGEOUS bookmarks. These are the deluxe ones with tassels, as seen below...



Since I'm going to need addresses to mail these to, go ahead and email me, rather than putting requests in the blog comments, though blog comments are always read, too!  Let me know if you want one or two bookmarks, assuming with two that you want to keep one and give one away! If you want a whole stack of bookmarks, or a class set, I'll be getting a shipment of slightly less fancy ones next week, and I'll be glad to send some to you if you let me know how many you'd like!

I've got some other exciting swag lined up, including leather bracelets engraved with passages from Masque (I haven't gotten these yet, and am so excited to see how they look!).





And various prizes... these are the ones I've already purchased and am dying to actually keep, but I'm not going to, these are all for prizes and giveaways...


A Poe inspired reed-diffuser, complete with a quote from A Dream Within A Dream. the scent is cardamom, absynthe, and sandalwood






This cool Masque of the Red Death inspired domino- necklace charm...from Etsy.


A 16" tall Raven hand puppet with a movable beak, it can say, "Nevermore," all day long!

This awesome Masque of the Red Death hoodie from Woot!.com

This awesome copy of Poe's Tales of Mystery and Madness, which has Poe's Masque, illustrated. 

A Poe inspired candle. Also with the Cardamom, absinthe, and sandalwood scent.


I'll also be giving away an annotated copy of Masque of the Red Death with notes, written inside, author insights (not sure how insightful those will be!) and maybe even a few hints about book 2.

These are the things I've picked up already. I'm still scouring the internet for fun Poe-inspired stuff.

April is going to be exciting!

I had to put the prizes up in the closet so I'd stop looking at/coveting them. And I have a few more cool things in the works...*rubs hands together*
