Prints of Thorns!


Contest over.

To celebrate Prince of Thorns' 5th birthday in print I'm going to send one reader an 18" x 24" print of the cover art!

If you feeling rich rather than lucky you can buy your own copy (or prints of any of my other Jason Chan cover art) here from the artist.

To enter the contest just comment on this page (comments are moderated so don't panic if it doesn't show for a while).

I'll draw the winner on Friday. If you don't leave any contact then you'll have to check back here to see if you won. Also ... if you comment anonymously it's going to be a little difficult to decide which of the anonymous commenters you are...

I went to random.org for a number between 1 and 193 (if it hit someone with multiple entries I had fair coping strategies). I got 6. So Poornapragna is our winner!

  18. The possibility of winning this print is Makin me giddy. I have to say that the Broken Empire Triology will go down as one of my favorites that I've Red- Kent wait to start Prince of Fools. On a more serious note: Broken Empire has been an amazing series. Through a Reddit recommendation I started PoT and couldn't put it down after that. Congratulations on all your success and Happy birthday, Jorg!
