Making Waves is a weekly question feature created by the Waterwitch Babes (part of Susan Dennard's Truthwitch Street Team). Every Thursday, we’ll have a fun question that all are welcome to answer on their blog. The questions will be random and/or relate to the upcoming book Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. A linky is provided so that everyone can link up their post and participate in the fun!
To participate we do ask that you use the Making Waves banner in your post and link back to the Waterwitch Babes blog.
Question 9: Have you visited the new website TheWitchlands.com? What are your impressions of it?
I've been a part of the Truthwitch Street Team for about... three months now, and it's been glorious to be a part of the launch of this book. Just a couple of weeks ago, the official website for the series was revealed and it is my pleasure to gush about it to everyone. ("Lots of gushing" is something I do on a daily basis, so it's not really a hardship.)
The layout of the site is wonderfully simple, but there are lots of fun things to explore. I especially love the map, which has pop-ups of information about the different provinces (cities?) and there is also a quiz to see from which part of the Witchlands you hail from. (I'm a proud Nubrevnan.) There's a very special list of inventive curse words that Safi (the main character) uses, so obviously that is useful. And the website design takes off from the gorgeous U.S. cover of the book, so of course it looks beautiful
Last but not least, there is a wonderful preorder offer - if you preorder Truthwitch, you can submit a copy of your receipt to receive a free poster and a signed bookplate! I just love this new incentive so many publishers are doing to get people to preorder. I mean, I'm going to get the book anyways, but now I can have free stuff too! Yes, please!
Next week's question:
Cover Love! What do you love about any or all the Truthwitch covers so far?
