Greetings everyone!

As I promised earlier in the week, it’s time for a contest! This contest will focus around my Year in Review.

It was a wonderful 2011. I’ve enjoyed filling this blog with various subjects – reading your comments and sharing my insights. I offer a heartfelt hug to everyone who has taken the time to peruse my articles as well as visit my official website and online store. But this contest is dedicated to the individuals who are either new or have followed this blog since its early inception. In short…this contest is for my subscribers. But first, let’s take a  quick look at 2011 as it relates to the contest.

Attractions in 2011

These are the posts that got the most views in 2011.

So what’s the contest about?

The ranking above was calculated by total views from anyone visiting the site. However, I would like to know what articles my subscribers liked the best. So…here comes the contest. What do you get?

Winner receives any single item at my SECRET THRONE store.  You choose!


  • You must be subcribed to this blog
  • All you have to do is mention which article you liked the best, either on this post (comment section) or you can email me at info@jackwhitsel.com
  • Contest will last from February 10th thru March 26th
  • Only 1 submission allowed for the contest
  • All submission names shall be placed in a bowl, and one will be randomly drawn by one of my sons.

See…that was painless. More contests and goodies to come.

Good luck!

I wanted to wait until my book release…I really, really did. But after receiving a number of products for my review and approval, I couldn’t resist. As wonderful as the quality of the products are, I must reserve the bulk of my kudos to the creative genius behind the image. Like the cover of Shadow of Kings, Ural Akyuz went to work again to provide me with an image that was simple, but yet possessed a punch. After I decided on the type of headshot I wanted for Lady Lucia, it was Ural who brought my Dragon Maiden to life. So here I was, surrounded by some cool stuff in the middle of the Holiday Season. What generally accompanies the Holidays is indulgence. With that aspect of my nature in full throttle, I have decided to open The Secret Throne store now, instead of waiting until Shadows of Kings is released in June, 2012. My plan is to close it at the first of the year and reopen it as my release date nears. Of course, if loud voices say otherwise, I’ll leave it open.

For now, there is only one image on multiple clothing products and miscellaneous items. Be advised– more images and products will be added. But for the time being, I’m keeping it simple, as I prefer to test things out slowly before exposing them to the outside world.

To my beloved fans of geekdom and all things fantasy, I present The Secret Throne. http://www.printfection.com/Secretthrone
