Calling All Witch Eyes Fans!

Those of you who have stopped by the blog before may know just how much I love Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey. So much so that I may have read it one or two or three… okay five times. So far…. And there may have been a giveaway of a copy of this awesome book.

But ever since I read it, I have been endlessly pestering author Scott Tracey for any teasers, spoilers, morsels or tidbits he was willing to reveal about his next book in the series, Demon Eyes. I thought I might have been alone in my endless begging, but Erica of The Book Cellar seems to be in the same boat as I am. Maybe not with the begging, but being the recipient of the torturous Tweets and teasers by this author.

Don’t let the photo above fool you. This handsome young man, with his charming grin and devil-may-care attitude, isn’t as innocent as he looks. No. He is merciless with his characters, and just as merciless with his mildly overly obsessed fans.

But perhaps the endless pleading finally cracked his resolve. Because tonight he suggested that if we (Erica and I) were to put out the call for suggestions for something fans of the series might want to see, he may just give in and pick one he likes.


Ideas? What ideas?

So, what exactly does this mean? Well, maybe it could be an extra scene about Drew? Or Braden and Trey? Or Lucien?

Or maybe it could be a guest post on his blog by Braden talking about something that happened to him prior to arriving in Belle Dam.

Maybe we could get a play-by-play from Trey’s POV about when he first met Braden?

Who knows what idea he might say is so full of win that he has to run with it?

But the idea he chooses could be yours!


So what happens now?

Well, you leave your idea in the comments.

When Scott Tracey finds one that bewitches him, he’ll make his decision.

And at some point in the not-so-distant (I hope!) future, we may just see a post on his blog with all the awesomeness that is Braden or Trey or Drew. Or maybe he’ll tease us with all things Lucien Fallon. Perhaps it will be something on the devious Catherine Lansing or mysterious Jason Thorpe.

Or it could just be the fun and fabulous Jade that he chooses to write about. Heck, at this point I’d be happy with a story about Uncle John!

Maybe he’ll even choose to let Leah Clifford (a.k.a. Fake Scott) read a few chapters of Demon Eyes on BlogTV. Or maybe he’ll read a few himself.

While my idea that he give us a chapter each month of Demon Eyes was not an idea that he put in the win column, I’m not giving up. I still love that idea, even if he doesn’t.

UPDATE: Apparently, in my haste to create this post I missed a Tweet or two from the author about the fact that in order to motivate, cajole, convince him to take on the task of writing this little extra story, you also need to VOTE for Witch Eyes over at The Story Siren. So. after leaving your idea in the comments, be sure to VOTE HERE.



Anything else?

Yes. I’m giving a little something away to whoever leaves my favorite idea in the comments.

[UPDATE: The giveaway portion of this post is now closed. I’ll be choosing a winner shortly. Please continue to leave your ideas and Scott will hopefully pick one of yours after voting ends at The Story Siren!]

I will choose my favorite idea from one of those that are left in the comments. Even if it’s not Scott Tracey’s favorite. And to that person I will give a copy of Witch Eyes. You don’t need to have read the book to come up with an awesome idea!

But, if you have already read it, and own it, then instead you could win either A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford, a pre-order of A Touch Morbid by Leah Clifford or a pre-order of Everneath by Brodi Ashton – the book that Scott Tracey convinced me to go off pile to read last November.

I’ll choose my favorite idea on Sunday the 22nd. I leave it up to the author to pick his favorite idea when he so desires.

And for those of you who haven’t yet read Witch Eyes (are there really any of you out there?), here’s the description…

[stextbox id=”custom” color=”ffffff” bcolor=”000000″ bgcolor=”6a1206″ big=”true”]

Goodreads description:

Braden was born with witch eyes: the ability to see the world as it truly is: a blinding explosion of memories, darkness, and magic. The power enables Braden to see through spells and lies, but at the cost of horrible pain.

After a terrifying vision reveals imminent danger for the uncle who raised and instructed him, Braden retreats to Belle Dam, an old city divided by two feuding witch dynasties. As rival family heads Catherine Lansing and Jason Thorpe desperately try to use Braden’s powers to unlock Belle Dam’s secrets, Braden vows never to become their sacrificial pawn. But everything changes when Braden learns that Jason is his father–and Trey, the enigmatic guy he’s falling for, is Catherine’s son. 

To stop an insidious dark magic from consuming the town, Braden must master his gift—and risk losing the one he loves.

    I’ve been wanting to get my hands on this book! I still haven’t been able to, but here’s my idea anyway:

    I think the characters in Witch Eyes should have a round table discussion about Witch Eyes (could be any and all topics, including what they think of the reviews they’ve seen, the response the book has gotten, how fun it was being a character in the book, even a discussion about the authro) and dropping hints about Demon Eyes.

  2. smiling_ina says:

    Oh, I want to read this book sooo bad!!! I’ve been hearing about this from you for so long, I can’t believe I still haven’t read it. It’s one of those books my library doesn’t carry. *sigh*

    Anyway, I really like Theresa’s idea, so mine might sound a little bit silly, but since I don’t know any of the characters, it’s the best thing I could come up with right now. Should I get another idea, I’ll post that one too, if that’s alright. 😉

    Okay, how about one of the characters (your choice or Scott’s choice since I don’t know them yet) interviews the author himself, trying to get him to spill the beans on what’s to come for the character in “Demon Eyes”. I’m sure you’d be able to get at least some teasers for “Demon Eyes”, since Scott can’t just say “No” or “I don’t know” to every question his character asks him. It’s his own character talking to him after all. 😉

    Yeah, so, there you go, it’s nothing special or over the top, but that’s my idea. *lol*

  3. Scott Tracey says:

    You forgot the part where people have to vote for Witch Eyes in the Best of 2011 Debuts awards for best LGBT debut. That is contingent upon me writing a SHORT scene. 😉


    • smiling_ina says:

      Well, I voted for Witch Eyes every time I voted for Leah Clifford’s Luke, so that should be around 10 times at least by now. That should count for something, right? 😉 Actually, I’m going to go vote again right now. 😀

      • Ina!!! Witch Eyes is amazing! I became sooooo obsessed with it since Rachel started talking and buzzing and freaking out about it I just had to have it! Someone gifted it >.< now I'm addicted… I'm a complete fan of Drew well more like a over the top-obsessed-girlie shriek whenever Drew comes up in the book fan 😀
        I promise the book doesn't disappoint!

        • smiling_ina says:

          Oh Alba, I want it sooo bad, but there’s no way I can get it any time soon. My library doesn’t have it and won’t get it in any time soon – if at all – and I just can’t afford buying any books at the moment. 🙁 Hopefully, I can read it before the year is over. *lol* 😉

    • Fiktshun009 says:

      Haha Scott Tracey, you happened to leave that out of the tweet that made me run from twitter and ignore all further tweets, in order to create my post.

      But yes, of course EVERYONE MUST VOTE!

  4. I’m reading Witch Eyes right now! Yes I picked this one up thanks to you always saying so many wonderful things about the novel and so far I LOVE IT! So I’ll get back to you with an idea over here! Most likely by tonight since I cannot stop reading!! (another awesome way to procrastinate from homework 😉 )!

  5. p.s. @Scott Tracey I voted! 😉

  6. argh I stink at this things *-* my creativity is NULE T_T
    but I’m happy with anything that has to do with Drew, say like
    What does Drew do???
    Where is he really from???
    What’s with him being at the wrong place at the wrong time OR if you love him like me; at the RIGHT place at the right time every time it has something to do with Braden???
    okay I’m done…but anything Drew is more than okay with me hehehe
    ~demanding much?~
    BRADEN AND TREY!!!!!!!!!
    end of stinky comment >.<

    I’d love to have Scott interview Braden, Trey and Drew – BUT in a way that gets the three of them all bantery and argumentative so you get a behind-the-book glimpse of who they are when they aren’t being “controlled” by Scott. Sort of giving them free rein – letting them flirt or fight with each other, correct each other, and argue about where they want to go from here. AND maybe they’ll tell us about what they’re really up to behind the scenes.

  8. ephrielle says:

    Oh, man I have really wanted to read this book but haven’t gotten around to it yet. *hair pulling* Bummer, can’t help with any ideas. But thanks for reminding to go and pick this one up.

  9. Mindy says:

    I voted! 😉

  10. Christina Kit. says:

    I’d also like to see Scott interview Braden, Trey and Drew, but make it sort of like author-led therapy as they work through their issues, fight and flirt with each other. And maybe he can give us clues as to where he’ll take them next by asking the characters to choose between options/paths he’s thought of.

    ccfioriole at gmail dot com

  11. Christina Kit. says:

    OH OH OH OH! Another idea!

    How about a letter from either Braden Trey or Drew to all of us, telling us what they know about the next book based on all the spying they’ve done over Scott’s shoulder so to speak…

    BUT in order to whet our appetites without being spoilery, the really juicy parts are blacked-out like in declassified documents. We’ll get a taste of what’s coming without really knowing, which is great to guess about.

  12. Christina Kit. says:

    And I voted ages ago:)

  13. Christina Kit. says:

    And in the letter above, maybe the characters have the wrong info, or red herrings from Scott which he’s changed since editing…which makes it more interesting

  14. So I just finished reading Witch Eyes last night, and I loved it! 🙂

    Though instead of an excerpt of Demon Eyes, I think an extra scene would be better. Why? I mean, we ALL can read Demon Eyes really soon, but I’m guessing a bonus scene is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and it would be a shame to waste that just for a sneak peek of something we will be able to read someday.

    So ideas… Okay, my suggestions are all gonna be silly. 😉 But…. I really want an alternate scene from Witch Eyes wherein Jade doesn’t figure out that Braden’s gay, and she gets obsessed with getting him to like her since he doesn’t even looks twice in her direction. 😉 I think that’ll be hilarious!

    Or if not, an alternate extended scene from the bus (or another new scene) wherein Braden calls Drew “Abercrombie” to his face. And chaos ensues.

    Or you know, Scott can always write the scene that got Drew expelled. Either way, I’d be happy with it!

    And yep, I’ve already voted! Hope Witch Eyes wins!

      I just thought of a loophole. Braden wears sunglasses all the time because he needs a ‘veil’ between his eyes and the world, right? What about wearing contact lenses? Won’t that be more hassle free? 😉 Although, Scott could write a scene about where Braden tried that, and the contacts melted or something… 😛

      More ideas: What about a scene where Braden needs glasses, but then he looks at the optometrist and kinda sees his whole life flash before him and blurts out embarrassing stuff…? Like a short little awkward scene? Eh, I dunno.

  15. Christina Kit. says:

    OK – I just sat straight up in bed with this thought – how about a scene from either Trey, Braden, Drew or even Jade that’s kind of like one of their fantasies? About each other, about how they would’ve liked a particular scene to go as opposed as what really happened, about what they want to happen if they could control everything.

    OR a scene where a spell goes horribly wrong but has the funniest effects on everyone – acting either out of character or blurting out the truth, including Trey telling Catherine about Braden and then absolute mayhem ensues.

    Or maybe that spell gets Braden, Jade, Trey and Drew all stuck in the same place together for the night and they have to co-exist. And of course that doesn’t go well, but in a funny, snarky way.

    • Fiktshun009 says:

      You had a lot of amazing ideas! You are the winner, but the one I like best is:

      Or maybe that spell gets Braden, Jade, Trey and Drew all stuck in the same place together for the night and they have to co-exist. And of course that doesn’t go well, but in a funny, snarky way.

      Though I hope Scott writes a Trey and Drew scene!

  16. Christina Kit. says:

    New idea!

    I’d also like to see a scene from when Catherine’s young where she’s totally in love with someone completely inappropriate or forbidden (like her son is now with Braden)and we get to see how she’d handle it. It could be funny, sweet, romantic, snarky – anything. I think it would be a great contrast.

    Actually a scene from Braden, Trey Drew or Jade as they fantasize or daydream would be great as a lot of secrets, hidden thoughts would be revealed and it could also be a funny or exciting or totally romantic scene. I think it would be best if it’s a scene that brings Drew’s fantasy or secret wishes to life. He’s mysterious and it would be great to get some insight into him – and it would be intriguing to be able to understand him more and get a glimpse of his secrets (because I’m sure he’s got some huge ones!)

    OR what if Braden’s power’s off for a day and he can’t see all the magic there and it’s the one day where a spell is cast over the entire town which makes everyone lose impulse control – I think a scene like that could lead to some very funny and revealing behavior, not only from Drew and Braden but also from Jade, Catherine and Jason and the others.
