Blog Tour: September Wrap Up

Posted on: September 28th, 2012 by Anthony Rapino 4 Comments

Holy cow pies!  Can you believe an entire month has gone by already?  Crazy, insane, bonkers!

So much has taken place on this blog tour, but there’s still a full month to go, consisting of another contest (revealed on October 2nd), more guest posts, a live book signing, videos, and more!

Incredibly enough, we already have the three winners to the first contest!  If you’ve been following along, you know that I was giving away game pieces at every blog tour stop.  If you collected them all and “unscrambled it,” this is what you would have had:

Once the pieces were constructed, you had to solve the puzzle.  If you want to give it a shot, don’t scroll down yet, because I’m going to give the answer below:

**** SPOILER***

The puzzle, once solved, reads ageoftheindigochildren.blogspot.com

The winners were the first three to find that website and comment on it.  At this point I’d like to promise that the next contest is NOT a puzzle of any kind.

If you’ve missed the most recent blog tour stops, here they are:

What’s my worst fear?

I spill my guts!  Here’s a taste:

TMN:  What inspired you to write SOUNDTRACK TO THE END OF THE WORLD?
AJR:  I’m not entirely sure, though I think it had something to do with a bowl of lightly salted peanuts.

Before I go I’d like to thank all the awesome bloggers and writers who have participated in this grand experiment of the weird.  I’d especially like to thank those who offered their ebooks up for the digital prize pack:

Todd Keisling, author of A Life Transparent and The Liminal Man (both amazing books!)

RL Treadway, author of the Dark Urban Fantasy series, The Unfailed. The first book in the series, I Chiang is scheduled for publication in Winter 2012.

Red Tash, author of Troll or Derby and This Brilliant Darkness.

Next stop, October!

    Oh man, I’m too late! I got so wrapped up in my own blog tour, I forgot to get one last game piece I was missing. I had it down to something – the indigo children . blogspot.com… and then I noticed that the contest was over. Damn! Here’s to the next contest: maybe I’ll get that one in time!

    • Oops, sorry! Yeah, there are some crack puzzle solvers out there. The first prize was actually won a good week before the end of the contest!

    I think it’s the COOLEST contest I’ve ever heard of, and I only regret that I couldn’t play, myself, just for fun! 😀
