Calling All Hunters Plus Some Awesome Announcements!

Hey, you AWESOME HUNTERS!!!!!!!! (shout-out to Mary for coming up with that AWESOME name!) Soooo I know most of y’all are wondering what in the world is happening with Escaping the Blogosphere, well I’m SUPER SORRY for some of the confusions and stuff but there’s been a bit of some problems and I’m just gonna go ahead and give y’all the next clue!! But first, I figured this was a SUPER GREAT TIME to give you guys a few bits of AWESOME announcements I have!!!

First things first. A new TWN reader was telling us about a novella she has PUBLISHED!!! Yep, you heard me right!! PUBLISHED!!!! Anyway, I wanted to give a shout-out to it! I’ve not personally read it YET but it looks just AH-MAY-ZHING! If you wanna check out this gal’s novella, here’s the Amazon page! It’s called A Kingdom Worth Fighting For! (GENIUS name, amiright!) AND I haven’t gotten to the most AWESOME part about this!!! The author’s name isssssss…….ISABEL!! Yep, we’ve got another Isabel writer out there! *high fives her* I mean, c’mon, I might be a BIT biased, but Isabel is like the greatest author name EVER!

A few more quick announcements. Sorry, y’all but a lot’s happened since I last blogged. So, I’ve finally got the dates for when “Fairly Impish” will be released in the teen anthology. It’s actually March 12, so put the date on your calendar. I know, it’s SUCH a long wait, but hopefully it’ll all be worth it!! If you want more details, go here! And, guys, I HIGHLY recommend taking a look at the list of authors……

AAAAANNNNDDDDD check this out!!

Okay, I know most of y’all are ready for the announcements to be over with BUT I’ve got one last thing! So, one of my super amazing friends did a fanart of Colin!! I LOOOOOVE how it all turned out and wanted to show it with you guys!! So, here it is!

You, guys, all have Jane to blame for this. She told me to make them longer!! XD

Should I stop now?

Maybe now?

I don’t even know how much longer I can keep this up. XD

 

*stretches fingers*

Alright, I’ll stop now and show you the fanart.

I’m just trying to build up some AWESOME suspension!!

I hope you enjoyed all of that, Jane. XD It’s actually pretty fun, y’all. 

Once you start, it’s hard to stop.

Isn’t it AWESOME!!!!!! THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH to my friend for making it!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!

Alright, I think that’s it for announcements. XD So, now for the clue: The start of a story can bring great excitement. But this one shows trouble. You might need a Robyn to find this next clue. (Yeah, I think this one turned out worse than the last one, but guys, I had like two seconds to come up with it. XD)

Sooo in the comments (commenting on this post will still give you an extra entry!!) tell me do you like the drawing of Colin? What’s the coolest author name you’ve heard? Are you getting tired of being trapped in the blogosphere? 

OH WAIT!!! I haven’t added a GIF in here!! *hurrying to find one*

 

Issabelle is a publsihed author of YA fantasy. On the rare occasion when she's not plotting and pursuing her next story idea, she enjoys reading, blogging, and drawing. Currently, she is a little disappointed that she hasn’t found Narnia in her wardrobe, yet, despite all her searching. What she's probably doing right now is either fangirling about her favorite books to random people or scanning the pantries for chocolate.

    Well, I’m glad my confusion is all cleared up now. I was like, “am I missing something?”

    *checks out the novella*

    Oh, wow Colin looks so cute! I love it. It is very well done.

    • Issabelle

  • Allie Jo Andersen

I was super interested to see what everyone had to say about that. 🙂 Hmmm….My fav might be Allie Jo Andersen. I think I’d get tongue-tied if I tried to say it fast. Um…not sure why that’s important. XD 🤣 Hehehe…that’s good cause you’ve got a couple more days. YAY!! THANKS!!!!!! 🙂

      • Allie Jo Andersen

Whoa, you’re gonna beat me on this exclamation stuff. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  • Mahitha R.

    Congrats to all the “surviving” contestants of the Scavenger Hunt!! Hope you guys make it to the end!
    I just cannot wait to see Fairly Impish!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope it’s really worth the wait, it might inspire me to make a collage!!!!!! (I think seeing all of Issabelle’s exclamation marks are rubbing off on me! XD) And I’m really happy for Isabel with her newly published book!

    • Issabelle

      Haha, YES!! CONGRATS to the surviving hunters!!! *gives you all chocolate* I *think* they can do it. Maybe… XD

WELCOME to the official AMAZING side of the exclamation mark enthusiast!!! *shakes your hand*) WHOO!!! Me too!!! <33

      • Mahitha R.

        I’m happy to be here on the side of the exclamation mark enthusiasts!!!!!!!! And, I think there’s another reason for my being on this side. It’s probably because I keep urging my friends to read The Ascendance Series with a bunch of exclamation marks. XD Which reminds me, to those of you who STILL didn’t read The Ascendance Series after SO MUCH URGING FROM ALL THESE BLOGGERS, *takes a deep breath* READ ITTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Can’t wait to find out the winners for Escaping the Blogosphere!!! 😇

        • Issabelle

          Haha, I’m happy to be the first to invite and welcome you over!! It’ll forever change your typing habits. XDD YAASSSSS!!!!!!!! ANYONE who help expand the amazing False Prince kingdom is automatically on this side!!!!!! AND if you do it with exclamation marks that just automatically equals you to AWESOME!!!!! I SECOND THAT!!! To all who have not yet read The Ascendance Series *takes super deep breath* RRREEEEAAAAADDDDD IIIIIIIITTTTTTTTT NNNNNOOOOOWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <33 #NoRegrets

          Eeeee, I KNOW RIGHT!!! I'm super excited to draw out the winning names. Oooh, I can feel the suspension.

  • Jen

    I thought something was wrong with my internet when I found the next clue and there was no post for the scavenger hunt. XD I’m sorry things haven’t been going quite like you thought it would. *hugs* I am still having a ton of fun! ^_^

    Ohhh! Cool! I’ll have to go check out Isabel’s book! 😀

    Aaaaaahhhhh!!! Yay! Your anthology!!! *goes to check it out* Eeeee! So exciting!!!

    Oh my goodness!!! Colin is so cute! *heart eyes* Your friend did such a good job on him! ^_^

    A cool author name? Hmmm, well, I’m rather fond of mine. ;p

    I’m not *tired* of being trapped in the blogosphere, but I am starting to miss my family and real life. XD

    Next clue!! 😀 Off I go! ^_^

    • Issabelle

      LOL!! XD I’ve literally been sitting over here wondering what everyone was thinking at this point. But y’all shoulda known me well enough to know stuff like this was bound to happen. XD 🤣 Nah, I’m just joking around. THANKS!!!! It’s okay, though. I mean I said we were going on an adventure and what’s an adventure without a few complications!!! *hugs you back* YESS!!! I’m sooo glad!!!

      YAY!!!! It looks like it’ll be AMAZING!!!! 🙂

      Haha, THANKS!!!! YAY!! I'm glad you think so!! I'll have to tell her that all of y'all like it!!!! And then beg her to do more. XDD

      *gasp* WHY DIDN'T I REMEMBER YOURS!!!!!! YOURS LITERALLY IS ONE OF THE MOST EPIC EVER!!!!

      YESSSSSS!!!!! *dances* Haha, yeah, that's understandable. I'm missing mine too. :,( WHAT HAVE I DONE TO US ALL???!!! 🤣🤣 You want me to try and impersonate your fam?? 😆 I can't promise how good I'll be but I can always try.

  • Ally M.J.

  • Jane

    You didn’t need to put all those dashes for li’l old me. I’m so honored. 😂 It was fun to scroll through though. . .
    I found it!! I think the drawing is awesome!!!! It’s soooooo COOL that someone is doing fanart for “Into The Lamp”!!!!!! And congratulations to Isabel for publishing a novelle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is a MAGER accomplishment and I’m so happy for her!!!!!!
    The coolest author name that I’ve heard iiiiiiiisssssssss. . . *drum roll* *drum roll continues* *everyone gets annoyed by the drum roll*









    Nah, I’m not gonna make you go through that. It’s VERONICA ROSSI!!!! She wrote “Rebel Spy”. (I definitely recommend it btw.) I think there was an author’s name I liked more, but I can’t remember it right now. Maybe it will come to me. *shrugs*
    Then, this isn’t the question that you asked, but I once found this pen name generator (I could give you the link if you want, it’s pretty fun to play around with), and one of the names that popped up was Penelope Bailey. I just really liked how it sounded, so I thought about using it maybe. 🙂
    Oh, I will be marking March 12 on my calendar in big capitalized letters!!!!!!!! EEEKKK!!!!!!!! This is so exciting!!!! Your work is being published!!!!!!!! *throws confetti* *blows balloons* hands you a piece of cake*

    • Issabelle

      LOL!!!! Girl, I’d do just about anything within reason for you!!!!! You’re like one of my best friends!!!! *hugs* YAY!!!!
      WHOO!! I knew you could!!!! YAY!! I’m SUPER HAPPY you liked it!! IKR!!! And I think the gal’s gonna do some more so stay tuned!!! YES I SECOND THE CONGRATS TO ISABEL!!!!!!!! Hey, maybe one of these days I’ll be announcing that the incredible Jane has published her novel!!!!! I’m waiting for that day, girl!!!!
      Ooooooh *sitting on the edge of my seat in suspense* *wondering who in the world would get annoyed with the drum roll*





      Yeah, I’m giving up too. XD *gasp* THAT IS A SUPER COOL NAME!!!!!! Ooooh, you know I love a good spy story!! *googling the book* I’m TOTALLY GONNA CHECK THIS ONE OUT!!!!!!!! Yeah, that happens to me ALL THE TIME!! Well, if it does come to you, lemme know!!
      Ooooh, that’s sooo cool!!! YESS!! TOTALLY give me the link!! I’m wondering if it’s the same one I’ve seen. XD Ooooh, I like the sound of Penelope Bailey too!!!!! You should TOTALLY go for it, if you really like it and all!!!!! It’s EPIC!!! But even when you’re famous, I’m still calling you Jane!! And then everyone’s gonna be like who! And I’ll be like it’s just some friend stuff. XDD
      YAY!!!! I can’t wait for it to get here!!!! *gasp* BIG CAPITALIZED LETTERS!???!!!!! YEESSS!!!! I know, I just still can’t believe it!! *jumps up and down* *grabs the piece of cake and makes a run for it so no one will ask me to share*

      • Jane

        Heres the link to the name generator: blog.reedsy.com/pen-name-generator/
        (I hope the link works this time *fingers crossed*) Tell me if you find a pen name that you like!
        I would love it if you were the one to announce my novel!!!!!!!!!!!!! (You know, like if I ever finish it) You’ll be the first to know (well, after my mom and family) If I ever finish writing the first draft and if I get it published. You will probably be able to hear me squealing from your house if I ever do finish it, because, believe me, I will be VERY excited (and very loud) if it ever happens. XD
        And then, I say this every time, but I really like the book quote you have up this month!!!!<33

        • Issabelle

          Ooooh, cool!!! I can’t wait to check it out!!
          Haha, it looks like it’s gonna work!! I will copy and paste the URL! Okay, I just went and used the generator and this is what the first one came out as: MARGOT CHEVALIER!!!!! I’m not even sure how to pronounce that last name. XD I’m gonna keep messing around until I get one that is EPIC!!! YESSS!!!! Then it’s official!! Now, you’ve gotta go publish a book!!!! (YOU CAN FINISH IT!!!!!) WHOOO!!!!!! *happy dance* (LOL! Yeah, I can’t get in the way of fam. XD) Hehehe…so if I hear a random girl screaming, then I’ll know exactly what’s happened. XD Girl, I know you can finish this story even if I’ve gotta drag you through the next few chapters. XD I will make sure you finish it. XD *sending motivational sweets*
          Aww, THANK YOU!!!! I don’t get tired of hearing you say that!! In fact when I was posting it I was thinking oooh, I wonder if Jane will like this one too!!!!! <33

        • Katherine

          You’re welcome!!!! 🙂 Oooh, good questions! Honestly, I’m not sure yet. I have thought about it a lot though. I might end up using my real name. If I were to use a pen name, I thought about the name “Ila”. Maybe an Ila Rodgers? What do you think would be a cool name for me? I’m really curious if you have any suggestions!

          • Jane

            Ooh, Ila Rodgers is a very beautiful name!! It would suit you well!
            Funny story, when you asked if I had any suggestions I went to the name generate that I gave Issabelle and one of the names that popped up was Kathrine Bailey! We could be sisters! XD
            I’ll give you a suggestion, I just have to find the right one. Do you have a favorite letter to start the name with?

            • Katherine

              Thank you so much, Jane!!!!!!! I always liked the name Ila and when you asked me about a pen name, I just came up with that last name on the spot and thought it sounded good. Aww, really?!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!😊 That is so sweet of you to say!!!<333
              Oooh, Kathrine Bailey sounds COOL!!!!! I love it!!!!! YES, we could be sisters!! And then our books would be next to each others in the bookstores. And when people ask someone who their favorite author is, they will say, "my favorite author is the Bailey sister"! XD That would be awesome to see!!! XD
              Hmm, I really like the letter "A". And I must like the letter "K" too, because I just realized the other day that most of my girl characters either has a name that starts with the letter "K" or they have the name "Rose" somewhere in their name. Oooh, I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!!!!!!!! *eating popcorn in anticipation*

              • Jane

                *steals some of your popcorn*
                Okay, so since you choose the letter “A” and the letter “K” I came up with three names for each letter.

                K:
                1. Kara Ogley
                2. Kathrine Chapman (I figured you could just choose a last name)
                3. Kayla Mccoy

                A:
                1. Angelica O’Brien
                2. Abby Brown
                3. Ash Hardy

                Let me know what you think!! “My favorite is the Bailey sister” XD That would be so cool to hear! My middle name is Rose so I don’t blame you for using it a lot, it’s a VERY good name. XD

                • Katherine

                  *pops more popcorn because Jane stole some of it* XD
                  Ooooh, I LOVE ALL THOSE NAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They all sound so awesome!!!! “Kara Ogley” sounds really cool! Haha, yep, I needed a last name to go with Katherine.😉😁 And I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the name Ash!!!!!! I name a character in my novel Ash. Haha, yes, I still LOVE “the Bailey sisters”!!!! XD I’m gonna start calling myself “Katherine Bailey”.😉 Ok, now we have to be published so we can be at each others book signings and our fans will be like “can you Bailey sisters sign my book?”🤣 That would be so cool!!!
                  That is a BEAUTIFUL name!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, I’m going to use that name even more. Hopefully sometime this month I will be able to do a post about my MC. I think you will like her. Her name is Rosalie.

  • Rayna

    Oh- whoops! I completely forgot about the hunt. I always gotta be my forgetful self 🤦‍♀️
    But I’m definitely searching this time!
    Annnd the fanart is awesome! Though I don’t know who Colin is! Heh 😶🤦‍♀️

    • Issabelle

      LOL!! That’s okay!!! I forget soooooo many things, it’s crazy. XD We’re almost to the end so just go about two more days and then…FREEDOM!!!!!! *gives you motivational sweets*
      YAY!! I’m SUPER HAPPY you think so, Rayna!!!!! *gasp* THAT’S RIGHT!!!!! You’re new to TWN and have missed all my endless ramble about him!!!! (You might wanna count yourself lucky. XD) Colin is the main character in my old WIP, Into the Lamp which is a contemporary retelling of Aladdin. It’s the one I’m currently trying to get a literary agent for.

  • Kristianne

    That drawing of Colin is sooo good! I’m actually not tired of being trapped in the blogosphere . . . yet! XD It’s been really fun! And that is SO cool that you’re getting published in an anthology!! I can’t wait to read it! (And I found the clue, by the way!)

        • Katherine

          Thank you so much!!!!!!!!<3333

          Ok! My MC is named Rosalie and she is a princess. I'm thinking her hair color might be golden or a dark blond and she often wears roses in her air. Her dresses are similar in style to Elsa's ice dresses. She likes the color light pink and sometimes the color red. I'm not sure yet what her eye color is but you can color them whatever color you think looks best.
          Thank you so much for drawing her!!!!!!!!!!🙂<3

    Also, on author names – I’m currently into Japanese culture and gave myself a Japanese pen name, just for random stuff I guess lol. Idk why, just wanted to. So if you ever see a Megumi Kadotake around… XD

    • Issabelle

      Oooh, YESS!!! Ooooh, that’s really AWESOME!!!! I know a gal who’s writing this super incredible book about Cyborgs set in kind of Japan. I think it’s like a fantasy version of Japan. XD {Yes, Ribbon Ash, I can’t really go a moment without talking about your story and Smoke. XD} Hey, sometimes we do stuff just ’cause we wanna, who said anything about having logical reasons. XDD I most certainly never do. 😂 OOOOHHH, THAT NAME IS INCREDIBLE!!!!!!! I shall be keeping my eye open. XD

      • Grace King-Matchett

        That is SO COOL! I’d totally want to read that!!!!

        Yeah, most of my decisions are illogical XD I’m that kind of human…

        Thanks! XD What’s your pen name (if you hath one?)

        And yes I say hath. I know.

        • Issabelle

          Aww, YAY!!! I’m SUPER HAPPY to hear that!!!!!! <33 I hope it'll be really amazing!

          LOL!!! SAME!!! Sometimes I can be rational but sometimes I just dive head first into things. XD

          You're welcome!!! 🙂 I don't use a pen name, I just go with good ole Issabelle. XD Yeah, I'm not the most unique writer ever. 😀

          LOL!!!! Hath sounds waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more fun than just have. I like your creativity!!! 🙂

          • Grace King-Matchett

            I totally feel that, sometimes I just do stuff and don’t even plan it!

            Haha, thinking of a pen name is really fun! Maybe just think about names you like and then see if you can come up with a cool one. 😀 Just for the heck of it! XD

            Ah, thankest thou! *doesn’t know how to speak ye oldeth englisheth*

            • Issabelle

                    • Grace King-Matchett

                      Look y’all I just promise I WILL NOT steal any of your work.

                    • Issabelle

                      Hahaha, girl, this is just cracking me up. XD 😂😂😂 Don’t worry, I know you won’t steal any of our stuff. XD Also, I’ve got a class I’ve gotta go to, so if it takes me a while to respond to any more comments, you’ll know why. 🙂

                    • Grace King-Matchett

                      XDDD I can write copious amounts of fantasy but barely speak in a good conversation.

                      Ok! Hope you have a good time in your class <3
