Some of you might know I'm a huge fan of Ann Aguirre and her books.
So when Ann held a contest to make a mock cover for a Young Adult book she wrote and offered an Advance Reader Copy of Horde, the final book in her amazing Razorland Trilogy, as a prize for the winner I had to enter.
I convinced my owner to help me and this is what we made:
And I won!
This cover will be up on Ann's website until the real cover has been made.
And I'll get to reveal the real cover on my review blog!
I'm really proud and very excited.
If you don't hear me from me in a while it'll be because I'm stalking my mailbox, waiting for my Horde ARC and once it arrives I'll be reading!
Yesterday I got a visit from Aurian and her friend Maia. Aurian took some of our books with her to a convention in Berlin to get them signed. She brought them with her and she even had more goodies for us.
Voodoo Bride gave Aurian two books to sign and she got those back and Aurian had a third signed book for Voodoo Bride. Maya Banks has been on Voodoo Bride's wishlist for some time so she's very happy with this book.
There were lots of goodies from Vivian Arend and Wolfie.
We gave Aurian one book to get signed for us, but she returned with two and some cool extras.
Wolfie signed this book for us!
Thanks Wolfie, we'll treasure it.
This signed book was a gift from Vivian to us.
And we got a dog tag, a key ring and a small container.
It contained a horse shoe charm and a pin with the Canadian Maple leaf!
Thanks for the book and all the great goodies, Vivian & Wolfie!
Aurian had a really cool present for me as well.
She gave me two piggy charms!
Aren't they totally awesome?!
I'm very happy with them. You rock!
We had a great afternoon talking about books and other things and in the evening we went into town, so Aurian and Maia could compare the Martini Tower with the Dom Tower. They thought the Dom Tower was more beautiful, but I think the Martini tower is the best!
After that we had dinner at a Mexican restaurant.
It was a really fun day and I hope to meet up with Aurian and Maia again soon.
When we went to Utrecht this week the Armadillo came along as well. He heard many stories about my travels and wanted to see Utrecht as well. He loves trees and water, so we made a walk along one of the canals.
I'm part of a large family of pigs.
We all live with my owner in Groningen, the Netherlands.
I travel a lot with my owner and I post stories and pictures of my life and travels on my blog. I also have a blog where I post book reviews.
