Do you think I could enter the following? As a sort of Grown Up Lego?

Conspiracy of Kings, you know ;D

GUYS GUYS GUYS Megan's having another ARC contest! And this one is EASY. :-)  All you need is LEGOS.

And Megan said I'm absolutely amazing. <3

From MWT:


ARC Contest

Well, the last contest was not a disaster, so I’m going to try having a second one. It will be a worldwide contest.  I will pay the shipping costs if someone outside the US wins.


In honor of the absolutely amazing checkers, creator of The King of Legottolia, it will work something like this:

To enter– produce and describe in 150 words or fewer (or no words, some things speak for themselves, don’t they?) a scene from any of my books– including books not yet published or even written–(use your imagination, no spoilers from those who have already read an ARC, please) –executed (mostly executed) in Lego.

Send the images and the words in an email message to tildemwt@gmail.com and I will post them to a new tumblr King of Legottolia.  If you don’t see your entry on the tumblr within a few days of submitting it, you’d better submit again. I will try to send you an email when it goes up.  No promises.

After the contest closes on MARCH 15, 2017, 12 NOON GMT, I will post a link to a website where anyone can vote for the winner.  Finalists can go twist as many arms as they like to acquire votes.  See how neatly I absolve myself of responsibility.

On the one hand, this is going to be a bit more time consuming to enter than the last contest (I mean, unless you crocheted a doll for the last contest, in which case this will be a cake walk).  On the other hand, I am not expecting as many entries,  so there should be much higher odds of winning.  You can enter multiple times.

Again, I reserve the right to cancel the contest at a moment’s notice if no one enters or too many people enter, or the Lego people send me a cease and desist order.

See here for more inspiration. And here.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Oh Yay! Grab your Legos and go, everyone.

The Thief, an Amazon Mashup

Thought this might be amusing to share, while it lasted:


There's a normal Amazon.com page/listing for Megan's The Thief, but the above link goes to a page where Megan is mis-attributed as the author of a book of the same name, from a different series.  Scroll through the reviews.  Some are for the Cussler book, as pictured, and some are for Megan's book, as listed.

Cross-posting this from Tumblr. A great review from someone who recently read The Thief. See the original post here: http://lazybarbarians.tumblr.com/post/156852883847/the-thief-by-megan-whalen-turner

Kalinara: So it was my turn to pick the book again, and I decided to step away from Star Wars for a bit. I did however keep things in the Young Adult field by choosing The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner.

The Thief is one of those books that is very hard to review, because it’s very easy to say too much about this very simple story. Fortunately, we have a cut tag.

Crossposting ideas

Hey, everyone! Lady Jane and I have beek kicking (see icon) around ideas to keep the activity on sounis going, while doing all we can to spread the love of the Queen's Thief books all over social media. We think cross-posting news and media is the way to go, since there are so many platforms out there used by so many different people. Although a few years ago everyone was using just a few sites, it seems like now there are lots of different favorites.

dannybailey has come up with some great ideas--more to come from her (hopefully) later. In the meantime, if you are a Tumblr user, please follow our QT-related blogs:



I know lots of you have Tumblr accounts. Please feel free to cross post any Tumblr QT news/fanart here on LJ, or cross post any of our insanity on your own Tumblr pages. And if you leave a comment with your Tumblr site, we'll follow you, too.

If you all have other ideas about how to use other platforms to talk about the books, we'd love to hear them.
