Starry Nights EPIC Giveaway!


 I'm so excited to be a part of the Sci-fi Romance Brigade's annual Midsummer Blog Hop!This group has been a treat to find-- Authors who love sci-fi and love romance and aren't afraid to mix it all together. If you haven't stumbled onto the group blog, check it out HERE.

And wait til you see what's in this epic giveaway! But first read on ...

We all know THIS starry night, right?                         
But what about this one?


This one?


Or this one?


Here's a fun one ...


Thought it was really cool to see one man's artistic version of a starry night altered in so many creative ways. Stories are like that too. We can take someone else's general idea and retell it in our own way. Happens all the time, and fairy tale retellings are some of the most popular. 

Stars have a significance in Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc because my main character, Bianca, has two small star tattoos on her face. Here's a close up of one of the Bianca ornaments I made for swag:


And here's a pic I stumbled onto of a girl who just happens to have star tats on her face:


And I'll have some pics to post of my own star tats this weekend (temp of course) because I'll be at UtopYA in Nashville while this is going on. Many pictures to come! Please check back and/or check out my Twitter feed with the hashtag #UtopYA2014 for lots of great pics. You might just see some more authors you know!


Now for the giveaway! Wait til you see all the prizes!!

Oh my. Oh my oh my. I have always loved the original starry night - and those covers speak to me as well. Fantasy, romance, and fairy tales? Be still my beating heart.

The Tardis - of course!
It is our interpretation, isn't it?
Glad you made it safely to Nashville and met up with Jamie. Have an awesome weekend.

Have fun over the weekend, PK!

Those works of art are all lovely - each in their own way. Kinda like books, huh? Have a great week!

Susanne Drazic said...

That is quite a giveaway. Good luck to all who enter. The Bianca ornament is cute.

Rachel Leigh Smith said...

Vincent And The Doctor is probably my favorite Eleven episode. One of the cases I have for my Galaxy S3 is the exploding TARDIS painting.

Jennifer Ruth Jackson said...

The give-away is very cool.

Have a wonderful time at the conference! Your idea to combine your pixies and your book was very clever.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Hope your weekend was fun. Loved the pics.

Pippa Jay said...

I'm quite tempted about a star tattoo now. Although hubs would have a meltdown if I got it done on my face. :P

Julie Flanders said...

I have a friend who will LOVE that Tardis Starry Night. :) Starry Night is my all-time favorite painting so I loved these different versions. How fun. And what a great giveaway! Have fun in Nashville. :)

When I started following the hop, I wondered if anyone would refer to Van Gogh, but I'd forgotten he painted more than one such picture. Thanks for the reminder.

Carrie-Anne said...

Those are such beautiful pictures. Since I swing towards modern and abstract art, they speak to me much more than so-called "traditional" art.

Corinne Elletson-Kilgore said...

Love all those different versions of Starry Night; I've always loved seeing what people do with it - I saw one done in a stone carving for a fireplace. It was beautiful.

KM Fawcett said...

I love the TARDIS Starry Night! Fun painting. Great post! Thanks for participating in the blog hop. :)

Pauline B Jones said...

Very fun, PK!!

S E Gilchrist said...

Great post & fab idea to include the starry night pictures. This blog hops been a fab way to connect with new writers.

Aurora Springer said...

Lovely pictures!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Sci fi and romance. That is a cool blend. My hubs gets mad when I point out that the Star Wars movies were really just romances with light sabers.

spajonas said...

I want a Bianca ornament!

Elizabeth Mueller said...

What a fun post! My son illustrated one of Starry Night with wax pastels and did a fabulous job!
