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.
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…
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.
