A Thank You, An Announcement and a $50 Prize Voucher

Hey all! I'm so seriously excited. Not only did I hit 1000 GFC follows, but I got the go ahead to make an announcement I've been dying to share.

Sadly, no official release date yet and no cover. Instead, I can announce that Doorways will be published under a better, more epic sounding name.

But as a show of my gratitude and because I'm just a tad evil, I decided I'm going to make you guys work for the title. I'm going to give you spaces, and you need to guess the letters. I'll fill in the correct letters one at a time. So if there's a repeat letter, I'm not slotting it in again before someone guesses the letter a second time. Only one guess per person and one letter per guess, please!

Once all the letters are filled in, I'll enter all the people who guessed (whether they guessed right or wrong) into a draw and the winner will get a $50 Amazon voucher.

Please please please spread the word! The more the merrier, right?

Okay. Here are the spaces: 

The War of Six Crowns: The Vanished Knight

Get guessing!

But before I go, I just want to say thank you. Your advice and support have meant so much to me. It has been an honor to get to know you.

Misha Gericke said...

Yeah took me most of three months to hit on a series title that'd work.

On the off chance that we can guess the whole thing (not there yet, but I think I'm close), can we do that?

Misha Gericke said...

You're welcome to try, but I won't say if you're right until later. ;-)

Joshua said...

I'll keep it to myself, if I do.

Misha Gericke said...

Hehehe okay

Cool, got love when your baby gets the name it deserves. Hmm. I will go with T.

Andrew Leon said...

I'm only seeing 3 letters filled in? I'm assuming that's not correct.

Mark Koopmans said...

I'm going with a "U" as in "Congrats to U for cracking four digits" :)

U is awesome :)

Julie Luek said...

Big stuff, Misha! Congratulations. That positive, can-do thinking is already paying off.

Misha Gericke said...

Welcome Deborah! Another T down. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks! One I down. ;-)

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks! Sadly no L's in the title.

Misha Gericke said...

Yeah I'm actually really excited about the name. Another T down. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

That's weird. No there are a lot more filled in. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

U is awesome, but sadly no U in the title. Sorry! :-)

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks Julie! I really do hope it pays.

Mia Hayson said...

Congratulations! How exciting! I must know the name! I am thinking there is another H maybe so that's my guess but, regardless, I can't wait to know!! <3

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks! Get your friends to guess, then, cause I can't wait to announce the name either. :-P

Another H down.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

I'm going to guess an "R" (again). There's gotta be another one.

This is really fun, Misha - great way to introduce your book title. Congratulations on over 1000! That's amazing. I'm in awe.

Have a great Friday and weekend.
xoRobyn

Misha Gericke said...

One N down. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

Believe it or not, there's not a Y in the title. Thanks for stopping by!

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks! One I down. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks. :-)

One x down.

Misha Gericke said...

That's weird. You're the second person not seeing all the letters. So. At the bottom of the comments, I'll rewrite the title with all the letters to date filled in.

Misha Gericke said...

Glad you like the competition. :-) One R down.

Aldrea Alien said...

Awesome!

Now I'm sure I know what the fifth word is.

Misha Gericke said...

For those of you who can't see all the letters, here they are as they are at the moment:

The War of Six _ r _ _ n _: The _ a _ i _ _ _ d _ _ _ _ _t

Misha Gericke said...

Hehehe well spotted. :-)

Julie Flanders said...

Thanks!

Sadly, know M's though. ;-)

Crystal Collier said...

What about an F?

Writer In Transit

Nick Wilford said...

Congrats on 1000!

Just from that, it does look like an epic title. I'll guess a U.

Carol Riggs said...

Woot! 1000 followers, goodness! Congrats. And weird on changing the DOORWAYS title. So used to hearing you say DOORWAYS. ;o)

Is there another A?

anthony stemke said...

Hooray for you Misha. Is that $7500 US dollars? I hope you get it, and soon.
It was so nice to hear from you recently. I feel that your star is rising and I am happy for you.
I was hoping to hear you sing, or did I miss it, I hope not. I know you are very busy with several things going on.
Best wishes and fight those demons.

Christine Rains said...

Congratulations! I was always hanged in this game. Hmm, an O?

Medeia Sharif said...

Fantastic news!

How about a B?

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks! Looking forward to see what you come up with. ;-)

Misha Gericke said...

One G down. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks! Sadly know f, though.

Misha Gericke said...

Hehehe glad you think so. No U.

Misha Gericke said...

Yeah, but the decision to change it was actually mine. Reason was twofold: 1) The name no longer fit the story as perfectly as before and 2) It didn't suit the series title I picked and loved.

And nope, all the A's are in.

Misha Gericke said...

Yes I'm hoping to earn in USD. :-)

As for my singing, I'm still trying to control my voice, so I'm not really close to being good enough to put something like me singing on the internet just yet. I'm starting to get there, though, so fingers crossed.

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks! And yay! One O down.

Misha Gericke said...

No B, I'm afraid. :-)

Misha Gericke said...

To recap, these are the letters that have been revealed:

The War of Six _ ro _ n _: The _ a _ i _ _ ed _ _ _ g _t

Sarah said...

Oh dear...still don't know. how about another S?

Misha Gericke said...

Well spotted! Another S down.

Milo James Fowler said...

Misha Gericke said...

Lol still have a ways to go for that, though. And no clones. :-P

L. Diane Wolfe said...

How about a G?

Danette Baltzer said...

How about another... "L" Congratulations!! Very exciting!!

Misha Gericke said...

No more G's I'm afraid.

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks! Sadly, no L, though.

Kelly Hashway said...

LOL I think everything was guessed already. I was going to guess R but oh well.

Huge congrats to you on the 1,000 followers and the new title!

Misha Gericke said...

Thanks! No more Rs, I'm afraid. ;-)

cleemckenziebooks said...

Please please please don't post the title in the comments! Just a letter.

Gail M Baugniet - Author said...

Congrats on setting and moving forward on your ambitious goal, Misha.
I don't see that anyone said the letter "C" so that will be my guess.
