Book Cover Scavenger Hunt for author Arial Burnz

Joyous occasion! I’m so pleased to be a guest at the RomFan Reviews site, hosted by the three lovely ladies Annette, Carla and Michele. Thank you so much for accepting my invitation to participate in the hunt! *Big virtual hugs!*

What is the Scavenger Hunt?

For those of you just joining the scavenger hunt, I’m Arial Burnz, author of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles and I’m doing something a little different than your typical cover reveal. We’re on a Scavenger Hunt! In short, I’ve split my new book cover for MIDNIGHT HUNT into fifteen puzzle pieces and scattered them across the Internet. From June 17th through July 1st, one piece a day has been revealed on a blog, website or one of my internet hangouts (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.).

Gather the codes from all the pieces and send them in to me at the end of the hunt and you’ll be entered into the drawing for Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift cards, a signed paperback copy of my new release MIDNIGHT HUNT, as well as some signed Romance Trading Cards and other swag (Total Approximate Retail Value of All Prizes: $65). Please click here for the details and my contact information, and here for Official Rules.

Today’s Puzzle Piece

RomFan Reviews is doing the honor of revealing the twelfth piece of the puzzle. *drum roll* Tah-dah!


Notice the really important part of the puzzle piece above…the CODE! You’ll need that for the final drawing. Be sure to write that code down. You can right-click on the image and save it OR jot down the code somewhere safe. (NOTE: You can always go back to my site where the links to the pieces will be consolidated on one page and updated throughout the Scavenger Hunt.)

Zooming In On the Piece…

This is the fun part for me. The heroine, Monika, is slowly starting to be revealed on the cover. She’s the last part of puzzle we’re assembling. When my husband saw the completed cover, he said, “Hubba hubba! I like it!” Gotta love such a supportive man!

Exploring the Paranormal

Speaking of witches – Monika…not my husband – it’s their turn for the venting session. In the last two posts, we discussed what our pet peeves are regarding vampires and werewolves respectively. What bugs you about witches? Whether you’ve seen it on television, in the movies, or read about it in a book, vent about it here.

Maybe it’s the name witch and how there isn’t a suitable name for the male version. Or perhaps it’s fingernails on a chalkboard when witches are old, wrinkled hags with large noses and warts…like they don’t have good hygiene and never heard of Compound W! I know that’s high on my list of aggrivating images. What about brooms, wands or other such pariphenalia?

Do tell! What peeves you about witches? OR is there something authors, movies or TV do with witches that you wish they wouldn’t? Please share!

I’ll be available if you have questions and I’m looking forward to interacting with everyone.

Added Bonus: Be sure to leave a comment for my characters, who have been known to make appearances and surely already have during this hunt. (Click here if you’d like to learn more about my characters.)

Thanks again, Annette, Carla and Michele, for having me as a guest! Mwah!


  1. Thanks so much for having me here today, ladies!! I'll be on and off all day answering comments.

    And for those of you who are just coming into the Scavenger Hunt, we've been talking about what we love about all those supernatural characters - vampires, werewolves and witches. Today, we're chatting about what we don't like. So if you can't find anything you don't like...that's okay!! Share what you DO!

    And don't forget, you can leave questions/comments for my characters. You can visit my site to learn a little about them and even see pictures of my characters. I've created Romance Trading Cards.

    Thanks again!!!

  2. I really can't think of anything off the top of my head that bothers me about witches. Truly. I respect them, like to think I understand where they are coming from, and all around think they are fairly likeable folks. LOL I guess if I had to pinpoint ONE thing, it would be that they are usually able to make themselves appear however they want -- like younger -- for any length of time. Not fair! LOL That would probably be the only thing. Great post and great site, Rom Fan Reviews! Whoot!

  3. Sorry for the delay on my response, AJ! Was forced out of the house by HOT weather and then the place I went to only allowed 30 minutes of internet. BAH!

    Yeah, that looking younger at will thing would piss me off, too! LOL

    Thanks soooo much for stopping by and leaving a comment.
