Yesterday was release day for Heart Blade! I’m thrilled that I can finally share the first Blade Hunt Chronicles book with everyone.
Since I have friends and family members scattered around the world, I opted for an online launch party. I had a great time chatting about books, movies, weapon of choice, and – since it was Valentine’s Day – fave fictional romances.
There was also a scavenger hunt. I had so much fun checking out the entries. Some of them were incredibly creative! A few of my favorites:
A fairy cake for fairy (UK term; a cupcake or muffin in the US); a photo of a pet rat named Togepi for Pokemón; a bad breath microbe plush for villain; a dragon teapot for dragon (I want one!); a Darth Vader pepper shaker for villain; Wonder Woman’s invisible jet for spaceship; a board game rainbow and arrow-shaped pointer for bow and arrow; a Tardis for spaceship; a Monty Python’s Holy Grail DVD for chalice.
Besides several knights, entries for the warrior list item included Daenerys from Game of Thrones, Lurtz from Lord of the Rings, San from Princess Mononoke, and a Kachina warrior.
(The full list of scavenger items is at the bottom of the post, if you’re interested*)
As a release day bonus, I set up a quiz. (I love quizzes!) If you want to find out which Blade Hunt preternatural you are (vampire, pixie, witch, etc), take the quiz here. (Redirects to qzzr.com)
Some of the photos from the scavenger hunt:
And here is my own ‘entry’ which I put together just to prove it could be done. (And as an excuse to wear a panda hat…)
Thank you to everyone who showed up, and to those who joined the hunt!
