Dowser #2 – Cover Reveal and Giveaway

November 29, 2013

Without further ado, here is the book cover for Trinkets, Treasures, and Other Bloody Magic by the ever-brilliant Irene Langholm. I adore the magic and mystery that Irene has captured here. Thank you, Irene! You can find the synopsis and keywords on the Trinkets (etc) page (link above & on the side bar) but SPOILER ALERT!!

Trinkets (etc) book cover

    Yay! I am beyond excited to see the cover and learn the release date!! I would love love LOVE to win a copy of Trinkets, Treasures, and Other Bloody Magic (Dowser, #2)

    My favorite trinket is a rock (likely a piece of granite) that I purchased 16 years ago in Prague: A dear friend of mine had just died of an aneurysm at the age of 23 and I was devastated. The rock is white with dark discolorations and a gash. It has a hole in it so it can be worn as a necklace, and when I purchased it it was hanging on a black leather cord. For me, the necklace symbolized my friend’s death (the black leather) but that eventually I would heal from his loss and be able to carry his memory forward. The white rock at the end of the cord symbolized the continuing of life, while the discolorations meant that that life would be forever changed for the worse due to his loss, which is represented by the gash.

    I wore the rock every day for most of the last 16 years, first on the black leather cord, and later on a sterling silver chain I had purchased to wear in conjunction with the leather, so that when the leather broke I wouldn’t lose the rock. Thankfully, when the leather broke I noticed it and was able to save it: it now is attached to a framed picture of my friend. Recently, the silver chain also broke, and I haven’t yet been able to get it repaired. While I can’t wear the rock any longer, I do carry it with me everywhere I go. And, of course, the memory of my friend is still strong.

    I follow you on Twitter, have liked you and shared this page on Facebook, and I’m already subscribed to your new release e-mail list. I have a WordPress account, so I liked this post, but I’m not a blogger (only a follower) so I can’t share via that method.

    Thanks for offering this giveaway! I’m so happy to see the cover (it looks both magical and scary! I hope Jade is and will be okay!) and to learn the release date. I’m really looking forward to next week’s excerpt #1, too. 🙂

      This is an absolutely wonderful story of your “trinket”, Jen. Thank you so much for sharing!! I hope you’re able to get the silver chain fixed soon!!

        I’m glad what I wrote made sense! I found it hard to explain without the visual aid of showing it to you. I’m hoping to find a shop that can fix the chain after the holidays. 🙂

        Good. A chain like that deserves to be worn.

      Thanks for entering (and pimping me everywhere – LOL), Kelly!! I have curbed my love of new pens by working almost exclusively with a fountain pen. Now I buy ink!!

    My favourite trinket is a plain dangly wooden keep fob, it reminds me of my Cat Ding, who loved playing with it. He used to run around my flat with the keys jangling away, bit of a pain when I was looking for them though.

    I can’t wait to read #2!

    My favorite trinket is a pendant that used to belong to my mom. It is hammered silver, and in an abstract shape reminiscent of a mysterious arcane symbol that doesn’t actually exist. 😛 To me it is a little magical, in the way objects are that always make us think of people we love, even when they are no longer with us.

      “mysterious arcane symbol” – love that!! Thanks for entering, Gertie. Excerpt on friday!!
