The contest has concluded. I’ll determine winners and contact the lucky recipients over the next week, and once everything’s locked, I’ll announce the results. Sign up for my way-less-than-monthly newsletter if you’d like to receive announcements of upcoming contests and events.
The estimable Ari Marmell invited me to participate in Crossing the Streams 2014, a big book give-away featuring lots of swell writers. Here’s the deal:
All of us run a contest on our own sites. Each contest might be a little different from the others. What they have in common is that we’ll each give away two books. Then we’ll donate a third book to the collective grand prize, so someone who enters any of the various contests wins a signed book from every writer involved.
You can enter each contest only once, but you can enter as many different contests as you like.
To enter here, simply reply to this post with the title of your favorite—or your first—fantasy, SF, or horror novel not written by me (to cross out flattery as a tactic). If you’ll elaborate on why that novel is your favorite, or how it drew you into the genre, that’s fantastic but not required to be eligible for the random draw. But if you do elaborate, you gain a second chance to win. I’ll pick one winner by random draw and a second based on which commentary most persuades, amuses, or delights me.
Those who win will receive their choice of one of the following Pathfinder Tales novels:
If by chance you have all of these novels, we can work out a substitute from my remaining author copies of other works.
To be eligible, you must make your post between now and March 19, 2014. I’ll post the prizes soon after receiving mailing information from the winners.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
My Esteemed Colleagues
