In honour of the people who have liked my work, and to celebrate the imminent release of King of Thorns I have decided to do a stupidly huge giveaway.
Item 1 - a 14" x 10" x 1/2" canvas-on-frame print of the King of Thorns map.
Item 2 - a 15oz mug sporting the Prince of Thorns and King of Thorns covers on opposite sides.
Item 3 - A signed trade paperback Prince of Thorns (white cover) (a present for a loved one?)
Item 4 - A signed mass market paperback (black cover) (your stunt copy?)
Item 5 - A hardback mint condition A Dance With Dragons, signed and dated by GRRM (I love the series but I have a copy and I'm not a book collector)
Item 6 (not shown) - A signed, dated, doodled copy of King of Thorns (these regularly sell for £60/$90 on the site I do them for)
And all this can be yours if you win the competition!
To enter IDEALLY you need to make a video (camera phone is fine) of you, or you and a friend, or you and several friends, reading &/or acting out any scene or page from Prince of Thorns. The scene should be more than 20 seconds and less than 3 minutes. Puppets, claymation, lego, plush toys etc are all also valid actors.
HOWEVER - The deafening silence has spooked me into declaring that absolutely ANYTHING is a valid entry for this contest. Photo of your granny? Fine. Poem you wrote when you were 6? Sure. Interesting rock that looks a bit like an apple? Go for it. All entries will be subject to a vote. Winner takes all (excepting the bonus prizes). Mail me the thing &/or link to it and you're in.
There may not be many entries. It's possible you could win by reading 20 seconds' worth of page 1 with a bag on your head.
There may be several entries. It's possible the winner will have three friends with plastic swords doing the Chella-Nuban-Jorg scene in French accents.
All entries will be put on display and voted on. The winner gets the prize. There may be consolation prizes.
To enter - send me your entry or a link to it. If you're sending it to me it needs to be less than 20 megabytes. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Go for it! Have fun! Don't leave me with zero entries or ... I'll look like Billy NoMates.
Entries by July 10th please.
Here's an example of the staggeringly high production values we at TSHG demand:
