Free give-away of Amy Blake’s juvenile fantasy with spiritual themes!

I was excited to be contacted by author Amy C. Blake about her new release, a juvenile fantasy called The Trojan Horse Traitor. I read her spooky suspense Whitewashed last year, and it was great fun.

Author Amy C. Blake's new release, the Trojan Horse Traitor

Amy wanted me to help her get the word out about her Goodreads give-away of two paperpack copies of the new book, so she just sent me the info. I love the description–sounds sort of like Harry Potter or Percy Jackson but with more overt Christian themes.

Here is Amy’s description:

Left on Castle Island to attend Camp Classic, thirteen-year-old scrawny, redheaded homeschooler Levi Prince finds himself at the center of an enchanted world of amazing abilities, cloudy motives, and wicked beings that will challenge his very spirit. He begins to form friendships, but life at camp becomes more confusing as questionable activities and uncertain agendas bring about conflict that tests his character in ways he never expected. Finally, faced with a friend’s betrayal, Levi is forced to confront true evil. Will he find the courage to stand his ground, and to become the hero he was always meant to be?

The Trojan Horse Traitor is now available in both e-book and paperback formats.

Amy is hosting a giveaway of two paperback copies of The Trojan Horse Traitor on Goodreads. You can enter now through December 14th.

Hello Misti-Con!

After months of preparation (that is not an exaggeration!) it’s finally time for Misti-Con, a fabulous convention in New Hampshire for Harry Potter fans.

Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets handmade quilted wall hanging.

In celebration, I’m having a MASSIVE PRIZE GIVE-AWAY, and you can participate whether you’re at Misti-Con or not.

So what am I giving away?

GRAND PRIZE: a $50 Amazon gift card!
NEXT…you could win one of three handmade, quilted wall hangings–handmade by yours truly!

First, the bright blue Chamber of Secrets wall hanging pictured above. I’ll show it to you in more detail below, plus the other two.

But first, HOW TO ENTER:

There are two ways to enter:

First, come to my author table at the Bewitching Bazaar & Author’s Alley at Misti-Con and fill out a slip to enter. No purchase necessary!

Second, use the green box on this website that says “Sign up for updates on Robin’s writing.” All new sign-ups will get one entry in the prize drawing. Here’s the box:

You can get two entries by entering in person at Misti-Con and on the website.  The drawing will be held around 5:00 at my author table, and winners will be notified via email.

And oh yeah…at my Author table at the Bewitching Bazaar, you can also check out my books, of course! Summer’s Winter is a really fun read for fans, because it’s a romantic suspense involving fandom. John Granger said it’s “the most inventive take on fan fiction I can imagine — because it’s a romance-thriller about fandoms, especially if not explicitly the Harry Potter fandom, and explores the important intersection of literature, spirituality, and imagination. Delightful!”

And then there’s my new one, Jordan’s Shadow, a spine-tingling mash-up that’s a little bit ghost story, science fiction, family drama, mystery…well, you get the picture. It’s a fun, spooky read…and the characters are Potter fans, of course!

And now, here are more pictures of the wall hangings you could win (or make).

First, the bright blue, Chamber of Secrets mini quilt pictured above. And in a little more detail here:

2015-05-17 15.36.31

This is partially made from officially licensed Harry Potter fabric that has been out of print for years, and sells for about $65/yard on Ebay! It was hard sacrificing a bit of it, but I love the result.

And then, this micro mini quilt, which I call “Always…”  Hopefully it doesn’t need explanation if you’re a fellow Potter fan!

2015-05-17 15.37.46

It’s entirely made by hand, including hand quilting. I’m showing front and back views partly because, if you like what you see, you can not only enter to win it but can also come to My Misti-Con workshop, Intro to Fandom Quilting, on Friday morning at 11 a.m. and get a kit to make either a Silver Doe wall hanging like this, or an Owl (scroll further down).

And here’s the Owl you can try to win–or get a kit to make on Friday morning.

Hope to see you all at Misti-Con! Oh, and if you don’t catch up with me at the Bewitching Bazaar or the Fandom Quilting workshop:

I’ll be leading two more sessions on Sunday:
9:00 a.m., Christian fans’ praise and worship meet-up (Location: Gunstock)
2:00 p.m., Fan Fiction: Noble Past, Explosive Present, and Your Publishing Future (Location: Gunstock)

Hope to meet you this week!
