Warded Journal

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! One thing demons excel at is destruction. They wreck crops, houses, lives… well today Kemendy Júlia took back some of that power. Check out this awesome ‘wreck this journal’, now repurposed as a ‘ward this journal’!


This is such a stellar idea, Kemendy. The runes and pictures look amazing! Arlen would be proud. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

The Skull Throne is now on sale in the U.S./U.K.! Order the U.S. edition here or visit Waterstones or UK Amazon for the U.K. version.

Demon Puns: Winner!

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! This week’s giveaway was amazing. I can’t even begin to tell you about the hilarious (and groan-worthy) puns we received! They had me in stitches and loved every single one. Even Peat was inspired to get in on the action by showing off this relevant comic cover:


I’d say Peat’s on the right track! But we’d better get moving before this post runs out of steam. Check out a few of the other punny comments we received:

“What do you call a demon that materialises near Brayan’s Gold and knows nothing? A Jon Snow Demon.” -Jon Harrison

“Jardir and Leesha are sitting in his chambers, discussing the attack by the Mind Demon..

‘He really needed to MIND his manners’ said Jardir.. ‘No pun, intended’.” – Linz Powell

“Tibbet’s Brook was relieved to finally get wireless internet – it meant they no longer needed to worry about the cored (cord).” – Sari Beastall

Bebarce sent in a few entries. My persona favorite is:

“The worst problem Arlen has to deal with when fighting in public wearing his loincloth is morning wood demons.” -bebarce

These are all amazing. And the winner of last week’s Warded Wednesday is Markus Edwards who entered this doozy of a conversation.

Leesha: “Why won’t this jar of spaghetti sauce open? Can you open this jar dear?”

Jardir: “Roger that.”

Rojer: “What?”

Jardir: “No. Not you. I was-”

Leesha: “Got it!”

Jardir: “Awsome!”

Asome: “What dad?”

Leesha: “Oh no, I spilt it all over us Jardir”

Inevera: “Look Jardir, it’s all over your Chin. It is Inevera”

Abban: “As cold as a snow demon”

Asome: “What did you say?!”

Inevera: “Enough! Abban, did you bank the money?”

Abban: “I’ll bank demon-ey tomorrow”

-Markus Edwards

I lost track of how many puns there were in this exchange? Really great job, Markus!

If you didn’t get a chance to submit a pun, or if you think of a new one, don’t worry. There will be another opportunity in the future. Also, be sure to tune in tomorrow for our next Warded Wednesday!

Didn’t catch the Jon Snow/Brayan’s Gold connection? You can order your copy of Brayan’s Gold here or you can check out the The Great Bazaar and Brayan’s Gold here.
