Illusions!!!

***ETA! Don't worry too much about putting the puzzle pieces together. You'll only need to mail in all five files to be eligible for the prizes and I will put up the full image here tomorrow!***

Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up, it's COVER TIME!!!:D

I am SO SO excited to start the cover reveal for ILLUSIONS!!! It is really warring for my favorite cover. It's so gorgeous and I have been DYING to share! However, just to make things fun, we are doing a little puzzle piece hunt.

All of the rules and clues are at L8BloomerOnline. The hunt starts today and ends on Friday right here!

Oh, and I have an extra special surprise that I will be revealing at the same time!:D

Happy hunting!!

Ciao!

Aww yay Cool Runnings <3 Loved it! :) I knew you were among my favorite authors for a reason! ;)

I am SO SO SO excited to see the cover. I found the first piece and I'm like... DYING in anticipation for the second! Or third. Heck, I just want to see the cover! xD

I wonder what the extra special surprise isss... Excerpt?! :O

Illusions is such a cool name.

The 2 pieces so far are lovely, like an impressionistic painting (though they aren't sized the same, so fitting them together takes some digital fiddling).

Judging from the first two covers, your cover artists are terrific. I wouldn't expect this one to be anything short of superb.

I'll be happily hunting up more segments the next three days, and I look forward to whatever surprise you've got in store on Friday.

:-)

Two pieces down! Three to go!
Glad I'm not the only one who has had trouble fitting the first two pieces together due to a slight size difference.
Not sure if you have explained this before, but wanted to ask about the reason the UK version of Illusions is called Wild? Particularly when the first two were also Wings and Spells.

I'm excited too. I personally am voting for David over Tamani. It would probably be easier if you killed off one of them (just kidding).

Kat said...

The cover looks so pretty. I think I know what it is with today's piece. I am so going to Tamani!!!

Sierra said...

Soooo cool. I'm having problems figuring out how to put them together (for now they're just on a word document). It looks beautiful.

Melissa Down Under said...

Anyone having trouble with the 3rd puzzle piece? The background is white, so it covers up the other pieces when trying to place them together.

Melissa Down Under said...

I have sort of fixed it, but it still has a fuzy white around the puzzle piece that I can't get rid of, which lays over the top of the other pieces.
Would love to know if anyone else having the same problem!

i LOVE WINGS but i think that david and laurel should be a couple

JLC said...

I was wondering if someone could tell me how to piece the puzzle pieces together? I can't figure out if you copy and paste them or save them... I have all the pieces so far, but don't know how to put them together. :(

Thanks,
Jamie

JLC said...

Sorry, Melissa! I didn't see your comment before I wrote mine. I am having the same problems. I have heard of these puzzle piece hunts before, but don't know how to put them together. I, too, have them saved on a word doc right now. If I figure it out I will comment back here to let you know how I did it.

Thanks and Good Luck,
Jamie

If it helps, I just did the pictures on a PowerPoint slide to get it all fit together. For the 3rd piece, just clicked it and selected it to be viewed in the background. That took care of the white. Hope it helps!!

:( I didn't get to hunt! I only saw the post today... to those who has everything down and just waiting for the final piece, all the best! :)

Josin L. McQuein said...

If you have photoedit software, you can use that to assemble the pieces. Open a new document and treat each as its own layer. Set the one with the white around it as the bottom layer and you're good to go.

Once all of the pieces are assembled, you'll be able to save the final image as a JPG which you can attach to the entry email.

Sierra said...

Tip!
Use microsoft word. Copy and paste the images on there. I couldn't get mine to move at first, but I went to format and changed the position (i can't remember what to) and then changed the text wrapping to behind text.
@Jezreigh
You can still find the pieces online. It's not too late! :)

I'm so excited for the cover! I finished spells and just can not wait for illusions!!! Is it too late to get the puzzle pieces?

p.s laurel just has to be with tamani!!!
p.s (again) david will probably die wayyyy before laurel so she has to be with tamani!

If you put the puzzle pices into powerpoint and send the one with the white edge to the back it works.Then you just group them together and you get one full pic.

What a fun idea! Can't wait to see the cover!!
