       I hope with all my dragon heart you all can drop by for the party. Your presence would be my greatest gift and the perfect way to close a year of adventure, laughter, struggle, hope and miracles. There will be also a lot of free dragon hugs!

I think this is one of the most original and fun ways to reveal a cover and it is brought to you by our dear friend Lexa Cain! (Thunderous cheering from dwarves' standing ovation.) 


Can you find the error on this cover?
To win a prize, find the cover error in each of these 10 blogs:

Ellie Garratt Klahanie Julie Flanders - In High Spirits - Mainewords - Father Dragon Writes

  1. Love, love, love dragon hugs! I've put the party on my calendar!

    Lexa, Great cover!
    I'm assuming the error is the cursor in the middle of the page. But we all know what assume means! LOL

  2. Father Dragon, I'm honored to be on your list! Thanks so much--can't wait for my dragon hugs!

    Great cover, Lexa--I'm so happy for you! :)

  3. You did a beautiful job with that intro. It is a great cover.

    Thank you Al for including me on your list. I love the dragon and all his dwarfs. Special place to visit. I'll be here to celebrate and I'll bring treats for the dwarfs. Since I love dragons, I want a big hug from one very cool dragon! Just sayin'

  5. Honoured to be on your party list, I've put the date in my diary!
    Congrats to Lexa and a fun idea for a reveal.

  6. Hey - I found the error Lexa. Feeling gutted about not being on the list, but I've never been very V.I.P and didn't know of this fab Dragon business. My bad. :) X

  8. I'll have to ponder that cover some more.

    Re: Nov. 24th... I'll definitely come for the dragon hugs. :)

  9. You know I will be here for the party! Glad you chose to enter the blogging world a year ago, my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hmmm, I can't quite find the error in that cover. And mucho congratulations on your upcoming blog anniversary. :))

    ReplyDelete
  11. I just saw that cover and I still don't see a difference.

    Sweet of you to throw us a party, Father Dragon.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I can't find the error? I think something's wrong with my eyes...?
    Thank you for the invite Al.
    I'll definitely be here for the celebration!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congratulations! And so sweet of you to include me (especially, since I've been a horrid blogger lately). I'm definitely going to give my best to make it - even if I have to park outside the grocery store to get on the internet ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Haha I did notice the 'errors' in the different sites, how fun! Congratulations to Lexa ;)

    I'm honored to be on the list and I shall be here :D
    Dragoness hug!

  15. I'm so bad at finding picture errors in covers.

    And congrats on your blog anniversary! And I'll definitely be here for the party. :) So glad you've kept up the blog, my fantastic dragon friend!

    ReplyDelete
  16. What an ingenious idea for a cover reveal. Kudos to Lexa (or whoever thought of it).

    So glad to have been a part of your year, Al. Getting established in this world can be quite hectic, can it not? Especially if health concerns or other issues intercede on this journey. I'm happy to support you in any way I can.

    All my best,
    M.L. Swift, Writer

    1. Very hectic, Mike. But I must say I have learned SO much from all of you. Thanks for your support!

      Delete
  17. I don't see any error, just an intriguing cover! Congrats to Lexa.

    And congrats to you, Al. That year flew by! I'll most definitely be here to party, stubbornly insisting on bringing River (and possibly Jezebel). Jeff isn't bringing any more gassy dwarves with him to the party, is he?

    You have helped me more than you can ever know, father dragon. You allowed me to see beyond my walls and envision a better future.
    Many bolitas to you!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No more gassy dwarves, I promise. I will feed them with coal. That's an amazing remedy for that problem, hehehe. It will only smell to dwarves cologne and dragon scent, hahaha. You may bring whoever you wish, my dearest friend. I love you all the same.

      Delete
    2. That sounds rather...explosive! LOL! Coal + gas = feed them outside the cave. ;)

      Delete
  18. I will certainly be there! Thank you, Sir Dragon. I couldn't have thought of a better way to celebrate a blogoversary. That's because dragons are just clever like that. :)

  19. (giggle found it)

    Congrats on 1 year!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yay to the anniversary! I'm going shopping to find just the right outfit for the party. Can I bring something? Caramels for the Dwarves?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh, dwarves would love caramels. Just don't make it chocolate, remember I'm allergic to chocolate. Dwarves thank you for thinking on them. :)

  21. I'll keep this date in mind! Thanks so much, Al! I feel so flattered!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aloha Al,

    It has been far too long since I have entered the cave, so my apologies for that and I hope you are doing well, my friend:)

    It would be my honor to join you on the 24th. I'm looking forward to it:)

    Isn't it amazing how fast a year goes:) Why, before long you'll be celebrating your 803rd birthday :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am honoured to see my name in the list Al. I will mark the date in my calendar. Hugs to you Father Dragon.

    ReplyDelete
  24. What a wonderful thing you are doing for your friends!!! It makes us all feel loved and appreciated. I shouldn't speak for "everyone." It makes me feel loved and appreciated. That was akin to you reaching through the computer with a HUGE HUG. Thank you, Al.

    Lexa... I found it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Um...without reading comments and hoping around I'm assuming the two different eye colors and the arrow thingy in the middle.

    I shall return!!!!

    1. Ahh shananigans!!! I meant to say I found it!!! Just saw the rules.

  26. Actually your cover was the only one I got.

    You know I will be there with bells on Father Diaz, how wonderful to get a personal invitation. I too am a sucker for dragon hugs. I will bring the dwarf tossing champion with me and he can challenge the Dragon Night again. Have the dwarves recovered from their flight yet, especially Jeff feeding them beans?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hahaha, yes, don't worry Jo, the dwarves are fully recovered from Jeff's spoiling. I am seeing he's a bad influence for my dwarves overweight. But you don't need to bring air masks. :D

      Delete
  27. Thanks so much for the invite, Al! I've penned in the date so I don't forget to stop by. *HUGS!!!*

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm all in for some dragon hugs...who can resist those?! Love the cover, but I'll be darned if I can find an error in it...

    Thanks, Al :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Happy one year Father Dragon!! And thanks, I'm super honored to make the list and even more honored to have met someone so unique, charming and kind as you. You really know how to lift a girls spirits and put a smile on her face. I will make sure to be around more often and more importantly on Nov 24th! Again, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's gift enough to be on your list and to have met you. I always enjoy visiting your colorful cave. You can truly make my day. Thank you, Al.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow. I'm honored to be included with this group of bloggers. I've got 11/24 on my calendar. Thank you.

    But I came up empty on the cover error.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love Lexa's cover! And this is definitely a really fun way to do the reveal :)

    Congrats on your upcoming anniversary!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ridiculously excited to read Lexa's "Soul Cutter"! I would be honored to help celebrate the Dragon's friend day, thank you! I'll bring the coffee, and the music:)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you, Al, I'm honored. The bloggosphere is so much brighter and warmer with you here. (:
    Love Lexa's cover, I need to go visit her blog!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Aw, muchas gracias! I'm putting it down on the calendar right now. The 24th is my last day of my thirties, so it's even more reason to celebrate as the big 4-0 looms over my head. lol

    Sending dragon hugs your way! It's been a pleasure having you around the blogosphere! :D

    ReplyDelete
  36. Lexa's cover reveal game is so clever! And thank you, Father Dragon, for the wonderful invitation. I'm blushing that you've included me. You've made my day. Hugs to carry you through the weekend! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Aww, I'm so touched to get this invitation. I can't wait for the party! What a wonderful idea, Al.

    And I couldn't agree more about Lexa's reveal - so creative and fun.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That is a clever way to talk about one's book!

    Al-- you know from all those people up there, we each celebrate our friendship with you more than we can say. What wonderful gifts a warm heart, a word of encouragement, shared laughter and mutual interests all are. Many, many SHs to you, Dragon friend.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have been on hiatus from my blog but I had to jump in a say hi and I'll be there. Your blog has been a blessing to me often.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow! This is so sweet!!! I'll be there. Big dragon hugs coming your way!!! BTW, the Dwarf finally told me his name in the hope that it would get him out of giving my dog a bath . . . the clone is called - Dayton, or at least that's what he's confessing to at the moment.

  41. What a great party invitation! Thanks so much. I'm very honored to be an honored guest. As soon as I get home, I'll transport myself to the cave.

  42. Al, my friend,

    First of all, Lexa's imaginative mystery cover reveal is certainly getting some excellent feedback. And silly me was the last one to post up about it. I was wondering about time zones. Never mind, let the fun commence.

    And your party, a celebration of your one year of being part of something very special, very powerful. As you have displayed positive interaction, it has been embraced. And the hugs back to you, are testimony to how much we all care for you. I am honoured that you have included Penny and myself amongst that incredible group of folks. Thank you so much for that.

    Inspiration breeds inspiration. Hope, caring and understanding, blending as one towards a better world.

    A peaceful, positive weekend, my friend.

    Gary on behalf of Penny :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am always up for a hug, ESPECIALLY a great big dragon hug. You can bet everyone of your dwarves I'll he back. Thank you so very much.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Big hugs!!!! You are a bright light in the blogosphere and if you leave, I will have to steal some ninjas, bribe some dwarves, and hunt you down!! I'd be a sad human without some dragon light.

    ReplyDelete
  45. And I couldn't find anything wrong with the cover! But you're right...very clever indeed!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sounds like a great party:)

    Found the error on the cover, Lexa. Nice job with the launch.. loving the search.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Do you have any idea how long I've dreamed of being 18? You've made my dream come true! LOL There is always room on my calendar for my favorite (and the coolest) dragon.

    It has indeed been a most memorable year. I've been hugged by the dragon and I'm better for it. I'll definitely be in line for more. Thanks for having us along on the journey.
