Realms Faire & Blog Hop Update

This is going to be a fun week in the blogosphere as the Realms Faire is now here!

The Realms Faire is the brainchild of M. Pax, and she is hosting her second annual joust on her site all this week. Visit each day to cheer on your favorite knights and be eligible for daily prizes!

In addition, Angela Brown is hosting a Masquerade Parade, Samantha Geary is holding a Collective Stage Performance, River Fairchild has a big Dragon Hunt going on, Gwen Gardner has a bunch of authors on trial in the Stockade Brigade, Laura Eno is running a Castle Jumble, and Christine Rains is hosting the irresistibly titled Drench-a-Wench and Soak-a-Bloke. All of these great hosts are offering individual prizes for their respective events, so there are tons of chances to win.

As if all that isn't enough, the Untethered Realms blog is holding a Phasers game every day this week. We at Untethered Realms got together to offer a Realms Faire grand prize of a Kindle or a huge bundle of UR author ebooks, so we are really excited to have everyone join us! You can enter to win through the Rafflecopter form at the bottom of this post.

Thanks to everyone who has signed up for the Dream Destination Blog Hop and Giveaway that Lexa Cain and I are hosting together in December. Our Linky List will be open all month so if you'd still like to sign up on the entry form below please feel free.

We are super excited to announce the prizes we have lined up for the giveaway so far.

Ebook copies of our books The Ghosts of Aquinnah & Soul Cutter
A 5 page critique from Lexa's agent Michelle Johnson of Inklings Literary Agency
A query critique from Michelle Johnson
An ebook bundle from my publisher Ink Smith Publishing
An ebook from M. Pax
A Kindle copy of BESTEST. RAMADAN. EVER. by Medeia Sharif 
An ebook from Nicki Elson - winner's choice of Three Daves, Divine Temptation or Hans & Greta

Major thanks to Michelle, Ashley at Ink Smith, Tyrean, Christine, Vanessa, Mary and Medeia for these generous donations. If anyone else if interested in donating a prize, we'd be thrilled to include it. The more, the merrier! 

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Enjoy the week at the Faire! :)

  2. Wow! Our prizes look so awesome, I'm giddy with excitement. People are so generous!

    That rafflecopter giveaway is incredible - a Kindle? Holy cow! I'm burnt out tonight, but I'll be following the faire from tomorrow. :-)

  3. @Johanna, I hope so,

    @Lexa, I'm giddy too! :D

  4. Holy cow...there's more news in this post than there is in an Alex J. Cavanaugh post! And that guy has a lot of news. :)

  5. @Michael, maybe I can start to give Alex some competition. :D

  6. Hey, sounds like a fun bloghop -- I'm in! I'd be happy to donate an eBook too - winner's choice of either Three Daves, Divine Temptation or Hans & Greta.

    That is an AMAZING prize at Unteathered Realms!

  7. I wish I could properly take part in the Faire this year, but I'm behind on my nano word count. Eeek!!!!

  8. Thanks for the mention :) Have a lovely week.

  9. It's off to a fun start :D

    Looks like your bloghop is gathering steam, too. Yay!

  10. Your blog hop sounds like such fun. But I'm going to be on a break the full month of December. Maybe I should rent you the Tiki Hut :)

  11. Yay! I LOVE this Faire, and it's killing me to miss it, but I'll have to pop in and check out all the epicness once the crazy of the day is done. Let the game continue!

  12. Sounds lovely! Tweeted!

    Hugs and chocolate,

  13. Wow! That's an awesome prize pack for the blog hop. Hope you're having a good Monday! :)

  14. Lordy, that's a lot of blog hopping. Btw, it's also creative. Kudos to Mary.

    I'm doing your Destination hop. I just need to figure out where to "hop." :-)

  15. Lots of fun stuff! Glad your bloghop is coming together. ;)

  16. This looks like a very busy week a head! Great list of prizes for your bloghop Julie!


  17. Sounds like you're having a blast at the Faire. A word of advice: let Father Dragon go. There's nothing worse than having to muck out a dragon'll need bulldozers.
