It's almost 2016, DEV CHIBI, and a BOOKISHLY EVER AFTER Giveaway

This was the hardest chibi to keep under wraps, but I really wanted to wait for a special time to share it. New Years eve/day it is! Draskia proved yet again how amazingly talented she is with the latest Dev chibi, down to the dog-eared pages!!! 

(plus, there's US-only and international-only giveaway info at the bottom of this post, so don't forget to scroll all the way through)

Let's talk about Dev for a minute, shall we?

  • Hometown: Lambertfield, NJ
  • Hobbies: Acting, singing, clarinet, trying to learn how to play rugby (like half the guys at Pine Central), setting things on fire at camp
  • After-school activities: Marching band, Theatre Club
    • You know these first 2 bullet points? We had a lot of really sweet band and theatre guys in my high school. They were definitely some of my favorite people AND a few of my h.s. crushes. I mean, hello???? a guy who can SING? Yes, please.
  • Dream career: Actor (shh, don't tell his parents!)
  • New Years resolution: to read more awesome books recommended by one of the girls in class
Giveaway time!!!!

Happy 2016! Starting from now (December 31, 2015 EST) until tomorrow evening (January 1st, 2016, 10 pm EST), comment here or tweet at me (@Emberchyld) one of your (positive) New Years resolutions, and I'll randomly pick 1 each US and International for:

-US-only Giveaway: an Annotated ARC of BOOKISHLY EVER AFTER
-International-only Giveaway: A set of Bookishly Ever After Buttons, bookmark, bookplate, and postcard (please put "International" or "OUS" in your tweet or comment so I can sort you into this giveaway

(I LOVE International folks, but shipping is $$$$$ :( Buttons are a liiiiitle lighter than books!)

Happy New Year and I can't wait to see what 2016 brings!

Meet Em from Bookishly Ever After

Here's yet another chibi I've been dying to share with you (seriously, the wait isn't easy for me!) This time, I asked the insanely talented Draskia to draw Phoebe's best friend, Em:

Isn't she adorable????? I absolutely love Em's curls! And her outfit actually will show up in Ever After book #2.

Reasons why Em is such a fun character to write, and why I absolutely love her:
  1. She's not afraid to speak her mind
  2. She is amazingly good at flirting, which is something Phoebe (and I) can't do
  3. She's an actress with an amazing singing voice, but stinks at doing a pirate accent. Argh, matey!
  4. Her love of history makes my history-nerd self so very happy
  5. She really cares about Phoebe, even though she doesn't always understand why Phoebe does things in her very booknerdish way.
  6. Em always wants the best for the people she loves and will do anything to make them happy (even if that means dragging them to where she thinks they need to be.)
I can't wait for all of you to "meet" Em in a few weeks!
