After surviving a disastrous battle at prom, Alyssa has embraced her madness and gained perspective. She's determined to rescue her two worlds and the people and netherlings she loves. Even if it means challenging Queen Red to a final battle of wills and wiles . . . and even if the only way to Wonderland, now that the rabbit hole is closed, is through the looking-glass world--a parallel dimension filled with mutated and violent netherling outcasts. In the final installment of the wildly popular Splintered trilogy, Alyssa and her dad journey into the heart of magic and mayhem in search of her mom and to set right all that's gone wrong. Together with Jeb and Morpheus, they must salvage Wonderland from the decay and destruction that has ensnared it. But if they succeed and come out alive, can everyone truly have their happily ever after?


Check out the book trailer!


Now on to the post!
Welcome to day two of the Ensnared in a Winter Wonderland Tour!

Today, Jeb and his sister, Jenara, are sitting at their kitchen table, discussing book three and the significance of harlequins, monarch butterflies, and cameos.

*****

Jenara: Okay, bro of mine. I’ve got a favor to ask. But first check out my latest design. A tribute to your fabulous book cover. *slaps down a fashion sketch next to Jeb’s cover art*
  


 Jeb: *rubs labret* Uhhh. The dress is great. But I’m not so sure about those butterflies. *shudders* And the girl’s makeup? Not the best way to get on my good side, sis. You know how much I hated wearing that jester junk for the photo shoot. It took them over an hour to glue those gems on, and another hour to peel them off without tearing away my skin. *cringes*

Jenara: *green eyes twinkling mischievously* Aw, come on. You looked hot as an elfin-harlequin. All the girls are swooning over the cover. Doesn’t that make it worth it?

Jeb: *pushes her sketch back across the table and raises an eyebrow* There’s only one girl I want to impress.

Jenara: Right. As I recall, Al was drooling all over you when you came home from the shoot . . . pretty sure her elfin worship continued after you shut your bedroom door, considering how smeared your makeup was when you two came back out. 

Jeb: *slants a gaze at his cover art, smiling* No comment. So, what’s the favor?

Jenara: Well, seeing as you have such a big part in the story this time around, I was wondering if there’s any way you could pull some strings and get me in? I could play your zany harlequin twin. We’ll be the foils to the creeper Twid Sisters. Tell your publisher I’ll make our costumes, free of charge.

Jeb: *taps a thumb against the table* You don’t understand, J. There’s nothing funny about this harlequin role. I’m not sure you’d like the gory aspects of it. I even had a little trouble myself. And Al totally freaked out until she got used to it. *looks thoughtful, then green eyes light up* But . . . there may be another way to fit you in. Even Mom, if you’re both willing to settle for a cameo? And no costumes required.

Jenara: *grinning ear to ear* I’ll take whatever I can get.

Jeb: *grins back* Okay. But remember . . . you asked for it.

Jenara: Um, that sounds ominous. *giggles nervously*

Jeb: It should. Because AnyElsewhere is one of the vilest worlds I’ve ever seen. 

Jenara: *gulps* Just promise me there won’t be any bloodshed in our cameo.

Jeb: *frowns tentatively* I can promise you won’t mind it if there is. 

Jenara: Not sure what that means, but . . . *takes a deep breath* you got a deal. *sticks out palm*

Jeb: *shakes hands* Awesome. How about, to seal it, you make us some of Mom’s famous chocolate chip cookies, huh? *narrows eyes and pauses* Oh. Wow. 

Jenara: What?

Jeb: I just thought of a way for Mom’s cookies to have a cameo, too. 

Jenara: *frowning* How is it possible for food to have a cameo?

Jeb: This book is about the impossible, sis. As you’ll soon find out for yourself. *winks* 

*****

Cryptic, huh? In just a few weeks, you’ll get to see what Jeb came up with for Jenara’s cameo. And in honor of her harlequin-inspired fashion line, the INTL prize today is this harlequin/ragdoll zippered bag:

About A.G.:


A.G. Howard was inspired to write SPLINTERED while working at a school library. She always wondered what would've happened had the subtle creepiness of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland taken center stage, and she hopes her darker and funkier tribute to Carroll will inspire readers to seek out the stories that won her heart as a child.

When she's not writing, A.G.'s pastimes are reading, rollerblading, gardening, and family vacations which often include impromptu side trips to 18th century graveyards or condemned schoolhouses to appease her overactive muse.



Giveaway Details:

(10) winners will receive a hardcover of ENSNARED. US Only.


(1) winner will receive the harlequin/ragdoll zippered bag INTL.
