Cover Reveal Game and Prizes

Help!


Gremlins have stolen my book and messed with my cover art!
They’ve added (or subtracted) weird things to the cover of my upcoming novel, Soul Cutter
and hidden them on 10 different blogs.


Please visit the 10 blogs and find each one's error so I can fix them.  You can comment on the blogs with an “I found it!” or "Nice cover" or whatever, but DON'T give away the answers!  Instead, put the 10 answers in an email to me:  laura.6eg@gmail.com

I’m so desperate I’m giving away prizes:

1     e-copy of Soul Cutter
1    10-page critique by me
1     5-page critique by me


Here's the real cover of Soul Cutter
(Use it as the key to see what’s wrong with the others.)

(Soul Cutter releases from MuseItUp Publishing on Dec 6, 2013.)

Blurb:

The Soul Cutter is hunting again.

Seventeen-year-old Élan spends her free time videoing psychic scams and outing them online. Skepticism makes life safe—all the ghosts Élan encounters are fakes. When her estranged mother disappears from a film shoot in Egypt, Élan puts her medium-busting activities on hold and joins the search.

In Egypt, the superstitious film crew sucks at finding her mom. When a hotel guest is killed, whispers start—the locals think their legendary Soul Cutter has come back from the dead. Élan's only ally is Ramsey, a film-crew intern, but he’s arrogant, stubborn—and hiding dangerous secrets.

When Élan discovers the Soul Cutter is no scam, she finds herself locked in a deadly battle against a supernatural killer with more than her mother’s life at stake.

Élan's fighting for her very soul.




People who find all 10 errors (or get the most right answers) will go into a drawing and three will be randomly picked to win the prizes.  The drawing and announcement of winners will be on Oct 31 – Halloween!



Happy hunting and don’t let the gremlins get you!




(You have until Wed, Oct 30 at midnight to write me with the complete list and be entered in the prize giveaway.)

I'm poised.. I have located all of those errors on the live posts, but I'm waiting for others who are clearly behind me in our time-zones. Six in total. I'll keep checking back. What a cool cover, and even cooler idea! I'd expect nothing less. :)

Hey Melissa,

I think you are adorable. Spit away, my friend! :)

Hey Lexa,

Just wiped a bunch of spitwad of my amazing self. Ah the irony. By the time I made note about the time zone thing, all the rest had posted. Anyway, let's do this. I'm off to dry myself....

Gary :)

klahanie said...

Who is this klahanie? Oh wait, the guy who is covered in spitwads! :)

klahanie said...

"Maybe, if we blow realllly hard..." Melissa, lovely Melissa, I shall avoid an innuendo and I'm outta' here......

Lexa Cain said...

It's totally my fault, ladies (and slightly damp gentleman). I didn't take into consideration the worldwide implications of my cover reveal and didn't think to sync up the post times. Live and learn. ;)

Eveyrthing's up and working now! Yippie!

Elise Fallson said...

Congratulations Lexa, this is so awesome! I just wish I wasn't so late to the party! I saw your cover on Father Dragon's site and I guessed the error before coming over. What a fun cover reveal and I have to say I love the cover. I just started reading a book that has an Egyptian theme and so far I'm loving it so I'll definitely have your book on my list to read as soon as it comes out. Again congratulations, Lexa. Bravo. (:
