Ten Rules for Surviving Encardia with @KrystalWade #WildesMeadow

Do you know what happened on Monday?

This happened:

That's right! Wilde's Meadow, the third book in the Krystal Wade's (aka the BEE's) wildly popular Darkness Falls trilogy released!

Happy endings are hard to find, and even though Katriona is in the middle of a war with someone who’s already stolen more than she can replace, she aches for a positive future with her DraĆ­ochtans.

Armed with hope, confidence in her abilities, and a strange new gift from her mother, Kate ventures into the Darkness to defeat a fallen god.

Losses add up, and new obstacles rise to stand in the way. Is the one determined to bring Encardia light strong enough to keep fighting, or will all the sacrifices to stop those who seek domination be for nothing?

Who is Krystal, you ask? What is the BEE, you wonder?

About the Author:

Krystal Wade can be found in the sluglines outside Washington D.C. every morning, Monday through Friday. With coffee in hand, iPod plugged in, and strangers--who sometimes snore, smell, or have incredibly bad gas--sitting next to her, she zones out and thinks of fantastical worlds for you and me to read. How else can she cope with a fifty mile commute?

Good thing she has her husband and three kids to go home to. They keep her sane.

To summarize: Krystal is my freaking amazing editor and friend. And she has graciously dropped by today to help prepare all of you adventuresome readers to embark on your journey to Encardia with us! Even better, she's come armed and ready with Ten Rules to help you survive!


Surviving Encardia

1. Avoid spending too much time around light; it will make spotting daemons more difficult when you go outside.
2. If you feel a gust of wind, run!
3. Do not let a tairb touch you if it's bleeding. You will die.
4. Keep your eyes off Arland; Kate has unrivaled powers.
5. Always be honest, unless you have to trick the Leaders and make them think you're following their rules.
6. Do not trust Dufaigh.
7. If one of your friends acts unusual, he's probably a shifter.
8. That hissing you hear is not from an old steam mill; you'd better run!
9. A blade alone will not kill daemons; you must learn how to conjure fire. Haven't learned to conjure fire yet? RUN!
10. Since you're running so much in Encardia, you should probably remember to bring your Nike's!
I'm officially concerned about my chances of survival in Encardia, y'all. That's a whole lot of running. And potentially dying. Two things I've discovered I'd rather not do.
The good news is we get to practice what we learned. Are you ready?

You should immediately drop what you're doing and RUN to pick up your copy of Wilde's Meadow on Amazon. Once you've done that, you should pick up your daemon fightin' tools, and follow Krystal's blog, Facebook, and Twitter for all sorts of opportunities to learn the secrets of Encardia.
And then (because there's never a dull moment in Encardia and we are practicing, after all), you should make sure you stop by Krystal's blog to participate in the Wilde's Moments contest, beginning on November 16th. You could win a Kindle Fire, and all you have to do is blog about your wildest, life changing moment, whether it was sky-diving into a vat of pudding (if you've done this, I love you), or quitting your job to go on a vision quest in the Death Valley armed with nothing but a stick and a bottle of water. Okay, so it doesn't have to be quite that wild, but you get the point.
You can sign up to participate and scope out the competition and rules here.
