Winterspell teaser #1!
In which Clara steals a moment with the mysterious, fearsome—and handsome—statue kept in the corner of her godfather Drosselmeyer’s toy shop.
And, an accompanying track from my Winterspell playlist: “Existential Itch” by Lamb: 


I love love love this teaser. &lt;3 And Winterspell is such an amazing book!

Want to win an exclusive signed print (one of only TWO in the world) by Hugo-award winning artist John Picacio? "El Venado" was inspired by Shadow and Bone, the first book in the Grisha Trilogy. (If you look closely, you’ll see the firebird, the sea whip, and the Darkling’s symbol.) The final version will be part of John’s Loteria series, and this beautiful sketch shows the first stage of the work’s development. This archival print is one of only two in the world (I own the other!), and you can win it. Here’s how:
Attending Loncon? Get any book in the Grisha Trilogy signed by me at my autograph session (Saturday, 8/16 @11am) or Kaffeeklatsch (Sunday @10am, sign up required) and be entered to win. Attending DragonCon? Get any book in the Grisha Trilogy signed by me at my autograph session (time &amp; location tba) and be entered to win.


Not going to be at the cons? 
You can still win a prize package that includes John’s signed 2014 Loteria Calendar (the year is almost over but the art is poster sized and gorgeous), a limited edition Loteria sketchbook, a signed first edition of Shadow and Bone, and a poster of the book’s map by artist Keith Thompson.
Just post the image above to twitter or instagram or reblog this post on tumblr using hashtags #GrishaArmy AND either #Loncon3 or #DragonCon2014 and you’ll be entered to win! Contest closes September 1st. Winners will be chosen at random and announced in September. Open internationally.
*On a personal note: I’m a huge fan of John’s work. I was lucky enough to meet him at Worldcon in 2011, and seeing him create art inspired by one of my books is pretty much a dream come true.

This is gorgeous. &lt;3 Crossing my fingers that I might win :) Thank you lbardugo &lt;3
