Team Kilt Tuesday {9}


Welcome to Team Kilt Tuesday, a meme ABOUT and FOR the greatest fandom in the world. We're glad you're here!
This is a very special week for Kilt & Keeley! Friday, December 21 will mark our first birthday! It is REALLY hard to believe the site has been up for 365 days. Do you all remember the night of the launch? I sure do. It was the most incredible experience I've had in my online existence.  I've never experienced as much excitement, anticipation and frustration in a sixty minute window of time as I did that night. And you know what? I wouldn't change a thing. (Makes note to document the night of #SolsticeSurprise for a future Team Kilt feature.)

A lot has happened in a year. We've added new admins to the site, we've celebrated a book launch and we've had buckets and buckets of love thrown at us. I wish we could hug each and every one of you who have supported, promoted and played with us. We'd be nothing without you. Like, for real. NOTHING.
I'd like to give a very special thanks to some very important people who have done some very amazing things for Kilt & Keeley. 
First, Amy. My dear, dear friend. Remember that night at Sammy's when we were writing limericks for Zach? Remember when we said we should create a fansite? Remember those Coke Zero filled nights when we DID in those really comfortable dining room chairs of mine? I wonder if people know how creative you are and how you built this site from scratch in some language I still don't know how to speak. This site wouldn't exist were it not for that big brain of yours. 
To Karen and Brooke. This site would probably be just a bunch of  "I heart Zachary" chicken scratch without the passionate Logan love you brought. Your enthusiasm is just so darn contagious and made the Keeley portion of the site the coolest pages of them all.  Thanks for that.  Karen, your continued support means so very much to us. <3
Jen D. I like to think of you as the keeper of my sanity, but in all reality, you're as insane as I am. Having a partner like you guarantees that this adventure will continue to be as fun as it is and filled with giggles galore. Thanks for all you do. Which is A LOT. *tackle hugs*
Juli. I doubt ANYONE could come up with the awesomeness that you mix up with those magic fingers of yours. It's like you can SEE what's in our brains! I don't know how you do all the crazy things you do, but thank you SO much for including Kilt & Keeley in your schedule. *muah*
Yo, Mike. The input you provided to two crazy girls that had a crazy idea was invaluable. Thanks for validating our craziness and letting us touch your super computer. :)
Lastly, to Jeri. People love you for lots of reasons, but the thing I hear over and over again is how much people appreciate your appreciation of the fans. We've certainly experienced that ourselves. Thank you for giving Kilt & Keeley your time and attention. I've never seen an author as involved with their fansite(s) as you are and we are a better site because of you. 
Sorry you had to endure my gushy-ness. It slips out every once and a while, but I think containing it to one or two posts a year is acceptable, aye?
OK, here's where the fun starts. We've got TWO giveaways to celebrate our one year anniversary.
GIVEAWAY #1
The sole reason Kilt & Keeley was created was to promote the SHADE series and have a whole ship-load of fun doing it. That continues to be our goal and today we want to get the series into the hands of someone who has yet to experience Aura's story. To accomplish that, we're giving away an entire signed paperback copy of the SHADE series, preferably to someone who hasn't yet read them.  To enter, simply fill out the following Rafflecopter form.

GIVEAWAY #2
Surely you've heard that Logan, Zachary and Martin are each getting their own novellas/short stories next year. Giveaway #2 is a pre-order of electronic copies of both "Bridge" and "Shattered". And here's the thing: it's a PROGRESSIVE giveaway.
We currently have a collective total of 539 followers on various social media sites. (120 GFC followers, 306 Twitter followers and 113 Facebook fans) For each additional 30 followers we get this week, we'll add another set of pre-ordered e-books. (If just one person follows us on Twitter and likes our Facebook page, that's a total of two new followers) So enter and spread the word like wildfire!

  8. Happy Blogiversary! Congrats on 1 year! There are so many things about Team Kilt that I love, but I think what I love the most is how tightly knit the community is. All brought together by the love of one Scotsman... Oh wait, that is me... The love of one book series by one of my all time favorite authors. I really wish I could have participated in the gift exchange, but I totally missed signing up for it. that would have been great fun!
