THIS CONTEST IS OPEN INTERNATIONALLY.
As you may know, we recently ran a contest to get your name on the GEMINA casualty list. Yes, Amie and I actually asked our readers to volunteer to be murdered in the lightless black of the void. That’s the kind of authors we are.
Happily, the response was amazing! Sadly, the contest was only open to US and Canadian residents. We said at the time that we’d be working on a way for all our amazing readers to die horribly, and THAT TIME IS UPON US.
There are very few spaces on the list. But, if you would like the chance to suffer a particularly painful death in the cold belly of space, read on.
REPEAT: THIS CONTEST IS OPEN TO EVERYONE. BRITONS. AUSTRALIANS. AMERICANS. MARTIANS. WE GIVE NO FUCKS WHERE YOU ARE FROM.
Things you must do to win this contest:
- Pre-order a copy of GEMINA. It does not matter where you do this. Online. Local bookstore. Seedy back alley. However, proof of your pre-order MUST be supplied.
Handy links provided below:
- Send proof of purchase (scan, photograph, contract written in the blood of the innocent) to: firstname.lastname@example.orgThe next step is VERY IMPORTANT
- Along with your proof of purchase you must provide:
a) Your name. Not a twitter handle. Not a cute nickname. Not a forum avi. Meta as it might be, we cannot use a name like byteme.
b) You must also include the following declaration within the body of your email:
My name is [insert your name here]. I confirm I am freely agreeing to the use of my name in the series The Illuminae Files.
