Help me start my Pinterest board!!!

For the contest, send pictures via twitter, to my email info@bethanygriffin.com or put links in the comments!

Okay, so today I'm very excited about starting my brand new Masque of the Red Death Pinterest board. I'm very excited about the idea of Pinterest, in fact I just had my creative writing students create low tech collages of their works in progress. I wanted to do my own, but as ever, was behind on grading and ended up commenting on papers while they were cutting, pasting, and glueing.

The other day I discovered a copy of Masque that I had forgotten I had, AND I have a copy that's being mailed back to me by a friend who didn't have time to read it.

I wanted to have a fun contest, so I'm collecting Masque inspired pictures for my interest board. I'm going to pick my favorite pictures and the winners will get their choice of a Masque ARC (I want to get these out since the book comes out in 3 weeks!) or a Masque bracelet. Including the limited edition white bracelet which you can see here


I'll pick the winners by Thursday evening and send prizes on Thursday. Good luck everyone! 

Here I am on Pinterest http://pinterest.com/bethanygriffin1/  follow me, and I'll be sure to follow you back! 
So excited about this contest and endeavor.

I haven't read the book (yet, a few more weeks!), but red makes me think of steampunk, and the glamour of the velvet curtains makes me think of the club where your characters spend time. not my photo but here's my pic http://pinterest.com/pin/197454764882708341/

I feel like an idiot, I should have made a Pinterest board for you instead of spamming your comment section with a long list of links. And I realized that the pictures that I uploaded to my photobucket account aren't even pin-able. Sorry about that!! Please delete my original comment :)

Oh cool, if anyone should feel like an idiot, it's me. I'm the one who isn't sure how this whole thing works which is why I'm getting help from you guys. Going to work on integrating your pics in just a little while, so excited.

Gosh, I feel so silly cause I've NEVER been on Pinterest nor do I know how it works. Too bad, I'd love to win a cool Masque bracelet....
