Giveaway UNHINGED by AG HOWARD BLOG TOUR STOP 6 @aghowardwrites @RockstarBkTours



WELCOME TO TOUR STOP #6

THERE IS AN EXTRA GIVEAWAY 
 BE SURE TO ENTER BOTH!


Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of.

That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs.

As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind.

If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she'll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head.

About A.G. Howard
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.

Welcome to stop #6…
Graveyards are creepy, anyway you look at it. Here in the human realm, tombs can be anywhere from disturbingly beautiful, to gruesome and eccentric:





Even strolling through a typical cemetery can leave you unsettled…

Probably because there’s nothing typical about death. Which is an interesting paradox, since it’s in fact universal, inevitable, and always nipping at our heels.
One would think, in an atypical, magical place like Wonderland, you could escape death. But not so. The difference is, there’s no “resting in peace” there, unless you happen to land in Sister One’s crystallized rose garden. Just make sure you’re an agreeable spirit, otherwise this is what you have to look forward to:

Stuffed inside a threadbare, worm-eaten toy for all eternity, and tended by an ill-tempered eight-legged dictator named Sister Two.

Believe me you don’t want to know what’s under that glove on her left hand … or her right one, for that matter. Then again, you’ll find out soon enough, once you read Unhinged. If you’re squeamish, be prepared to squirm.

In honor of Wonderland’s Garden of Souls and its haunted toys, we’re giving away this morbidly lovely jack-in-the-box print:

Claustrophobia by Tanya Mayers; Size: 8.3" x 11. 7"

For a chance to win, you can either leave a comment below about what toy creeps you out the most, or send us some cool, decaying and eerie toy pictures via pinterest using @SPLINTERED by A.G. Howard as the recipient.

 If you do both, you get extra entries. Use the rafflecopter below, and we’ll choose a winner randomly out of everyone.

Good luck, and can’t wait to see what you come up with!

We’re taking Sunday off, but be sure to hang out with us on Monday when we give you a sneak peek into the creepy “sounds” of Unhinged.

Also, if you haven’t yet, take time to enter the other rafflecopter below for a chance to win one of 12 UNHINGED ARCs.

Have a great rest of the weekend!

  8. Jack-in-the-Boxes (Jacks-in-the-box? How do you make that plural? Haha.) have always creeped me out. Usually, though, because they have clowns or something popping out at you. NO. Not okay. This one is a different sort of creepy. Like, can we just sort of slip the knife away from that doll…. Hahah.
