If you are out there…I have an awesome Christmas present for you! Check it out:
Akasha ornaments – they are kinda cool, right? Please say yes because I made them myself. My plan was to post step-by-step instructions with pics that would rival any DIY craft blog, but things got a little messy. You can probably get all you need to know from this:
And by the way, the wine in the back was totally involved.
So how can you get your hands on this set of ornaments? Here’s how: send your answers to the below questions, and one fan who emails correct answers by Dec. 14th will be randomly selected. I have to give my sincerest apologies – this contest is only open to those in the US. I just shipped a bunch of books overseas and those rates are killer. So summing up; answer questions by Dec. 14th, US only. Send an email to: email@example.com.
Question 1 from ‘Water’: How did Shawn manage to overtake Kaitlyn and Susan, ending in Kaitlyn’s fateful trip to the Galapagos? (I’m specifically looking for the element used – you have a 1 in 4 chance!)
Question 2 from ‘Air’: What happens to Cato at the end of the book?
Question 3 from ‘Fire’: Where (what island) does Kaitlyn choose to hide from the rest of the gang?
Question 4 from ‘Earth’: The Akasha Series takes the reader all over the world, but near which city (or for bonus points, the exact location) does the final battle take place?
Hopefully the questions are fairly easy, it’s been a while since some of you have read the series! Again, just email the answers to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and hopefully I can get these beautiful ornaments to the winner by Christmas!
Good luck and happy holidays!
Kaitlyn’s adventure has ended. But mine is just beginning! I would love to visit each of the places in The Akasha Series (see my post here to read more about them), and I am going to start at the end. Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado is the location of the final battle in ‘Earth’. I was fortunate to go there this weekend with my sister. Fair warning – this post contains crap loads of pictures; hope it loads okay for you!
Winner, winner, chicken dinner! On a previous post, I ran a contest asking for ideas on how to use the elements in ‘Earth, Book Four of the Akasha Series’ during the final showdown. I got some great ideas, so a big thank you to everyone who participated! I did pick several winners – who will receive a character spot in the final book and the full set of all four books in print or as e-books once ‘Earth’ comes out this Spring. Here they are:
Kassandra – for her skypunch idea.
Laura – for the idea of having the large rock at Red Rock Amphitheatre falling over.
Sue Q – for her sinkhole idea.
Lolita – (who responded via email), for her idea of stone jutting up out of the earth to trap people.
Please understand, there is no organization to my writing process – I just let my fingers fly, and sometimes surprise myself by what happens. It is very possible I will end up including other ideas mentioned in this contest. For example, perhaps lava, submitted by several people. If that happens, I will contact you and offer the winning package same as everyone else.
If you are mentioned above as a winner, and have not heard from me, please email me at email@example.com.
Thank you all!
