Thank you to everyone who entered the INNOCENT DARKNESS literary reference photo scavenger hunt. The entries were fantastic. If you didn’t win, don’t worry, the big YA Scavenger Hunt (the one with 54 authors), starts August 1.
This is what Great Expectations looks like in Braile. Isn't that awesome?
Also, it’s a week until INNOCENT DARKNESS releases! There’s some great things coming up, including an online release party August 8th at Bitten By Books all day (with great prizes) and a twitter party at 6 pm PST on the 8th during #yalitchat.
Some people are already getting their copies of INNOCENT DARKNESS. If you tweet a pic of you and the book and/or post a picture on FB (and you let me know), I’ll send you a signed bookplate.
Some of the markers people used in the scavenger hunt were really creative, like this steampunk cuff.
