Wicked Winter Read-A Thon

Challenge & Giveaway: Fight For Survival [Wicked Winter Read-A-Thon]

Welcome to the Fight for Survival challenge over here at Kindle Fever!
(And yes, I did manage to post it CET time, but we’ll pretend that was planned… #failday)
Until 2PM EST, all of you RAT people have the chance to win a pre-order or an already published book of your choice–only after a little challenge, of course! It’s open internationally. All you have to do to enter is to:
  1. Be signed up in the linky HERE(Sign Up ends Saturday, Feb. 4– You can join one, two or all three days!)
  2. Either comment with the answer, or a direct link to your post/tweet/status with the answer, to the question below:

“A second Ice Age is coming on quickly! What do you do in order to prepare and how do you end up surviving it?”

Just briefly describe what you would do when finding out and how you end up surviving this! It’s all about creativity people. The most creative way that could somehow work (or maybe not…) will be picked as a winner! Go wild!

The person who manages to come up with the most awesome way to survive, will win the following prize:
  • A pre-order of After the Snow by Sophie Crockett
  • OR an already published book of their choice for up to $10 (can also be wished as a GC on Amazon)

A new Ice Age has descended on Earth. And a new talent has joined our list! Chilling.
The oceans stopped working before Willo was born, so the world of ice and snow is all he’s ever known. He lives with his family deep in the wilderness, far from the government’s controlling grasp. Willo’s survival skills are put to the test when he arrives home one day to find his family gone. It could be the government; it could be scavengers–all Willo knows is he has to find refuge and his family. It is a journey that will take him into the city he’s always avoided, with a girl who needs his help more than he knows.

So, off you go! Start being creative! :D
Next stop on the schedule is:
4PM – 8PM EST | Wintry Sentences | Melissa @ Melissa’s Eclectic Bookshelf

My answer...stock up on fuel, matches, anything that can ignite a fire...with a ton of ice, it is going to be really cold and wet. 


  1. OH I may have a very unfair advantage here. I live in Alaska and just survived posting in my bikini in front of the Universities sign at -52F! Let's see, can I give you a list of what is in my car for cold weather survival? No? OK I will be original here but use my survivalists training! My spinning tool for spinning our Malamutes' (dog)hair to make new winter wear, a hunting knife, a Swiss army knife, canned tuna in oil (we need high protein and high fat to help keep our health up in the cold, a hand ax for wood and kindling, flint and a strike stone, water proof matches, Wool socks, wool hat, wool sweater, and tons of natural fiber weaved clothing (synthetics do not breath so I will not as much natural stuff as possible) bow and arrow and a snare trap, rope, oiled tarp, flour, salt (for curing) wool blanket, skijoring gear for my dogs and me for travel... set of camping pans and cooking gear (cabin goddess must cook)dried veggies.. ok ok I WILL STOP, but there are some of the important things to have!

  2. Oh, I don't doubt it'll be cold! LOL. *shudders* Saving up for lots of fires is always a good plan. ;)
