Remember those AMAZING portraits of Amy and Elder that Christine Tyler did for the Across the Universe series? I got her to make portraits of the main characters of my next book, The Body Electric, Jack and Ella!
As with the first two portraits, there is a TON of symbolism in these two. Bees and fireflies; trees and waves; torn flags and broken strings; colors and clothing. Seriously: nearly every aspect of these two illustrations holds a very important piece of symbolism relevant to the story. 
Here’s your mission—and a chance to win a complete signed trilogy of my first three books, plus a signed and numbered, limited edition of my new book, The Body Electric, plus art cards with these illustrations printed on them! 
Examine the portraits of Jack and Ella closely—you can click on them to embiggen.
Reblog, tweet, and/or FB with a link describing what you think one thing in the illustration may symbolize. Example: ”I think the knife in Jack’s boot means he’s a soldier!” (If you FB or tweet, make sure you tag me so I see it.)
I will randomly select one winner to receive four signed books. All entries must be posted by midnight on August 1, 2014. Contest open internationally; if you’re younger than 18 years old, you need your parent/guardian’s permission to enter and receive a prize. Prize will be mailed when The Body Electric releases this fall. 
Winner will be announced in my newsletter, along with a cover reveal of The Body Electric and a full description of what each of the symbols in the illustrations actually mean. You can subscribe and see it all delivered in your email inbox!
Get entering! Let me know your guesses of what you think the symbolism in The Body Electric could be & win FOUR SIGNED BOOKS!

Right…. So in Jack’s picture the bees almost look like they have blood on them… Maybe this means that the bees have become some sort of plague or are attacking humans? Or animals? Or each other? Some how getting blood on them….

When Caroline Walter of Freiburg, Germany died at the age of 16, her sister, ,Selma, had a sculptor cast a life size sculpture for the gravestone - Every morning since Caroline’s funeral, a fresh flower was found tucked in the crook of the arm, and still is to this day - Nobody knows who leaves it - Every single morning! - Caroline died in 1867 - For 146 years, someone has been leaving flowers…

Caroline totes had a vampire lover.

This is by far, my favorite theory.

The Fault in Our Stars Masquerade Mask GIVE AWAY

I’m so excited about seeing the new Fault in our Stars movie trailer!  It looks like such a great movie and I can’t wait to see it. In honor of this, I’m giving away a TFIOS mask.

A while ago, I made this mask (you can see more pictures here) and it seems a few people liked it!  I’m offering a similar mask (either in blue or silver) to someone here on Tumblr. 

Here are the rules -

~ No need to follow, but you are more than welcome

~ Reblogs only, likes will not throw your name in the ring

~By reblogging, I’ll pull your username out and it will go in a spreadsheet with a randomly assigned number.  Then, a random number generator online will choose the winner.

~ The contest is up on February 12th 2014 - two weeks away

~ Please turn your asks on so I can contact you, should you win.  If I can not contact you after 24 hours, I’ll choose a new winner. 

~ The winner will need to provide an address to ship the mask

~ The winner can choose the background color - either blue or silver - and the punctuation on the Okay? Okay.

Good luck everyone!

This is so pretty! I already have so much nerdfighter stuff that somebody else should probably win, so go forth and reblog and maybe that can be you.

What’s funny about this is that in Star Trek he’s quoting Sherlock Holmes, but in Sherlock he’s quoting Spock.

Although the original quote was from Sherlock Holmes. It was used in TOS and then in Star Trek (2009) as a reference to SH. Then in Sherlock 2x02, Sherlock says it and John calls him ‘Spock’ as though it’s a reference to Star Trek and Wibbly Wobbly Inception of the quote, yo.

Canonically Spock is a descendant of Sherlock Holmes.

Wait, really? ^^^^

Yep. Star Trek 6 Spock says “An ancestor of mine once said ‘If you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains however improbable must be the truth.”

^^^^acurate gif is accurate.
