There are a lot of curses and charms in this story. Part of Chalice's job as a thief is to steal them for a nefarious group of magic users called the Vyantara. So part of the fun in writing this book was inventing a variety of charms and curses. I pushed the envelope of my imagination to come up with this stuff and my creative subconscious surprised me sometimes. I didn't know such bizarre and creepy things lurked inside my head. I need therapy.
If you could create a charm or a curse, what would it be?
It's time for a contest. Woot!
This is an easy contest and the prize is a signed copy of my soon-to-be released urban fantasy novel KNIGHT'S CURSE. In less than two weeks, the book will appear on brick and mortar store shelves all over the country and it's already available for pre-order through online booksellers, including ones I didn't even know existed.
All you need to do is tell me what kind of charm or curse you would make if you had the power to do so. Good or bad, doesn't matter. Be sure to include your email address when you comment so that I can contact you if you're a winner. I'll put all the names into a bowl and have one of my cats randomly choose a winner. You must be in the continental United States due to shipping costs outside the country.
Contest extended until Friday midnight. (When will I learn that it can take more than 24 hours for the word to get out about a contest? Sheesh.)
Let's get this party started!
