Win a copy of the soon-to-be released A Tale of Two Demon Slayers

Happy Tuesday! First off, I'd like to announce the winner of the drawing for Helen Scott Taylor's Latest, The Phoenix Charm. It goes to Jackie (myjaxons). Congrats, Jackie! Email me at angie @ angie fox.com and we'll get that right out to you.

And on to the blog... You know, as an author, I obviously write a lot. And I read a lot (because that's just plain fun). But I also have this obsession with totally-useless fun quizzes. They just tickle me for some reason.

So for the release of A Tale of Two Demon Slayers, my friend Shawntelle and I came up with the What Supernatural Pet is Right for You? quiz

It came about because in the book, Lizzie's talking dog, Pirate finds a dragon egg. This was totally unplanned, by the way. These things just sort of happen as I write. Anyhow, the egg hatches and Pirate decides he has a pet. I mean, how fun for a pet - to own a pet. Lizzie is not happy about that. She has enough going on and doesn't think her dog needs to own a dragon.

So she tells Pirate to find a new home for Flappy (Pirate named him, not Lizzie). So Lizzie is battling evil people and losing track of what Pirate is doing. He keeps promising to find a new home for Flappy, but instead Pirate is hiding the dragon, and loving the dragon and teaching him tricks. Every time Lizzie realizes the dragon is still there, it's gotten bigger and bigger and, well, it's just one more thing she can't quite control.

And the whole time I'm writing the book, I'm thinking, "Holy heck, how am I going to get rid of this dragon?" In short, I don't. So in honor of Flappy the dragon, we present the Supernatural Pet quiz. If you want to take it and post your supernatural pet below, I'll give one lucky winner a shiny new copy of A Tale of Two Demon Slayers. Contest closes next Tuesday. Good luck!

Yeah! This is what I got! Thanks! This was a fun break from work. :)

Your ideal pet is Smoky, the phoenix!

Regal and inquisitive, the phoenix is one of the oldest and most exotic birds. Let her sit on your shoulder and you'll both be a hit around town.

My results say:
Your ideal pet is Frodo, the talking dog!

He's charming at chatty. He'll be your best friend for a tummy rub - or that pork chop from last night. Just don't let him hop on a motorcycle with the biker witches or you'll be in for a wild ride.

Your ideal pet is Nostra, the psychic cat!

Sure, cats are smart, but yours can see the future. Literally. Treat her to some cat nip, or perhaps a nice scratch behind the ears...and maybe she'll let you know what else is in store.

I got Zippy the three headed dragon - YEAH! Thanks for the contest...

Angie Fox said...

Awww...it's good to see so many supernatural pets finding homes! Oh and when trimming dragon toenails, the trick is to go with the grain (and distract them by letting them eat an old sneaker).

Thanks for playing and I can't wait to give away a copy of A Tale of Two Demon Slayers!

I've had a demon cat (one named Chaos no less) before so it doesn't surprise me that I end up with another one. ;)

Sara M said...

This was a really fun quiz. :) My ideal pet it Frodo the talking dog! Although I'm a cat person, a talking dog would definitely be fun.

Which is kinda kewl, because im currently stuck in a house with 5 cats.. however I dont see them giving me lottery numbers..

Result says

Your ideal pet is Zippy, the three-headed dragon!

He may not be the most handsome creature on Earth, but who else can fly you to work? Or start up the barbecue grill in a single breath? Just make sure you have plenty of room in your bed - dragons like to cuddle.

Nostra, the psychic cat. Which is ironic, because I already have 5 cats and a one-eyed weasel/pomeranian.

Angie Fox said...

Yes, Alaina Lee, but have you *asked* your cats for lottery numbers? That could make a difference. ;)
