Solstice Surprise and SHINE countdown widget

Tonight (tomorrow morning), at 3:49am eastern standard time, the lovely ladies at Fictitious Delicious book blog (aka fearless leaders of Team Kilt) will be revealing a little something-something related to SHADE.

It's major.

Like, Logan's-17-minute-miracle major.

I know, it's in the middle of the night for a lot of people (including me), but they're doing it to commemorate Aura's and Zachary's birthday and time. Which is mentioned in one of the first chapters of Shade, so it's too late to change it.

Right now, and all day tomorrow, they're holding a Solstice Surprise party on Twitter (#solsticesurprise) with giveaways, music, and a SHINE-line (mini-teaser) from me every hour on the 0:49 minute mark. I started at 3:49pm EST and will tweet the last one at 2:49am. Then att 3:49am comes the big...thing.

For the halfway point, I wanted to offer something a little extra, something fun and gorgeous. So I present to you, designed by the amazing and talented Croco Designs, the SHINE countdown widget!

I know what you're thinking: "That's too soooooon!"
