The Stupidly Huge Giveaway 2013!
Why should those lucky 2012 people get things you 2013 people can't?
It's not right!
So I fixed it!
Item 1 - a 14" x 10" x 1/2" canvas-on-frame print of the Emperor of Thorns map.
Item 2 - a 15oz mug sporting the Prince of Thorns, King of Thorns, and Emperor of Thorns covers, wrapping it entirely.
Item 3 - A rare first edition signed UK hardcover Prince of Thorns.
Item 4 - A signed first edition US hardcover King of Thorns
Item 5 - A signed US or UK hardcover Emperor of Thorns, doodled artistically by me. (Book shown is trade paperback, standing in.)
Item 6 - The US King of Thorns audio book on CD (with signed insert!)
If you happen to already have any of these, or just aren't that bothered about signed books, then I will substitute on request good fantasy books that I've enjoyed recently.
There will also be prizes for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places - to be decided - probably a book/T-shirt/mug.
So last year it was making a video of a scene from Prince of Thorns. This year the scope is broader. You can send in anything you like as a competition entry. Anything.
The winner will be determined by popular vote, but this will only include people who already follow this blog, or me on twitter, or facebook, or who are friends/fans on Goodreads. This will hopefully ensure the best entry wins rather than the person with the most friends (last year we were fortunate that the person with the most friends also submitted a most excellent entry).
In addition to the vote I will award a prize at random to one entry, so you can win by luck as well as skill.
I will post entries on this blog as they come in.
i) Do a video of any scene from the trilogy.
ii) Send a photo of you reading a Broken Empire book in an exotic or unusual location
iii) Build a book tower/fort/arch
iv) Break the book holding record
v) Do a spot of book toppling
vi) Lay out a game of book dominos using your own books (marks for the biggest one)
vii) Do a cosplay of Broken Empire characters
viii) Redesign the cover of any of the books
ix) Write and perform a song that encapsulates the trilogy for you
x) Draw any character or scene from the books
xi) Build a clay Jorg, a lego Gorgoth...
xii) Something else...
The competition will close on midnight GMT July 7th 2013, followed by a week to collect votes.
