Amaaaaaaaazeballs

So, there is exactly seven days left to enter my Raiders of the Last ARC giveaway. My flint-black heart has melted, peoples. So far I’ve been sent blog posts pimping my book, poetry, photography, hand-crafted goodies, illustrations, vlogs, offers of firstborn children and wedding proposals.

You still have seven days! Thank you to the awesome folks who’ve sent me stuff so far – EVERYONE will be getting something to say thanks for the love and energy and time you’ve shown the book. You guys are awesome!

I’m going to link a few of the illustrations/photos I’ve been sent so far, because they’re the easiest to show. But there’s plenty of folks who can’t draw who’re sending in great stuff too! The only criteria for entry is “be awesome”. Without further ado, and in no particular order:

Chibi by Hannah Weyh

Kitsune’s Own by Tygenco

Stormdancer by G. Donald Cribbs

Yukiko by Nobonita Chowdhury

Akihito Gets Some Bad News by Adam Heine

Dying is Easy by Thalia Anderson

Yukiko by Su Ling M Chan (I think this one is unfinished, but it’s still awesome)

Like the post title says:

AMAAAAAAAAAAZEBALLS

Keep the awesomeness coming, you guys fucking RULE.

IN LATE BREAKING NEWS

STORMDANCER appeared in the latest issue of Publishers Weekly today. Not only did it get a starred review, but it’s also their Pick of the Week.

Raiders of the Last ARC

OK, I need to write this quickly, because the Pun Police are on their way to my house, and holy shit, you’d best believe they’re bringing battering rams and tear gas after seeing me write a post title THAT BAD.

I have one ARC of STORMDANCER left. The last ARC if you will. It’s signed. And annotated. And I may or may not have scribbled a couple of  pictures in the margins. (No peepees, I promise.)

Would you like to win it? Well here’s how.

Do something awesome for STORMDANCER. I don’t care what. Draw a picture or write a poem. Do a blog or a vlog. Pimp it like a bawwws on your Facebook wall. Sing a song. Find some stretch of industrial wasteland and graffiti STORMDANCER in huge letters on the wall.  Get a tattoo (don’t get a tattoo for the love of god). Make something. Do something. Something AWESOME.

Then, let me know about it. Hit me up on twitter or facebook, or mail me at stormdancergiveaway-AT-gmail.com

This contest will be international. I’ll run it until the end of the month. If I get sent lots of awesome stuff, I’ll find something awesome to to give away to the awesomest (totally a word) but not quite awesome enough to win the ARC. If only my mum enters, I’ll just sob quietly in the corner.

Have fun peoples. Create. That’s what this is all about.
