CROSSING THE STREAMS
Welcome to Crossing the Streams, a GINORMOUS multi-author book giveaway!
I and over a dozen other sf/f/h novelists and comic book writers have thrown in together to create something truly awesome for you, our readers.
Here's how it's going to work. Each individual author is running a contest on his/her own site, and each contest will have its own rules. Each contest will also have TWO winners who will both receive ONE signed book, free, from that particular author. So, for instance, if you win here, you'll win one of my books. If you win on Keith's site, you'll win one of his books, etc.
Second, and even more exciting...once the individual contests have ended, all the authors involved will get together and choose one single "SUPER WINNER" from all the entries on all our sites combined. This one lucky individual will receive a signed book, free, from each and every one of the authors involved.
You read that right. Somebody out there's going to win over a dozen FREE books! Woohoo!
You can only enter each author's contest once, but you may enter multiple contests. So you could enter here, on Matt's site, on Steven's site, etc. Heck, you can enter on everyone's site, if you want (and I really think you should, because these are some great books we're giving away)! And even if you aren't selected as the "SUPER WINNER," you could very well win more than one of the individual contests. You never know.
You can find a complete list of the authors involved, as well as links to their sites, below. But first...
How to Enter MY Contest
"What is your favorite book/story/poem - and why?"
Your answer can be as long or as short as you like, and you can qualify it if it's too hard to narrow down (your favorite book of 2011, or your favorite romantic sonnet, or whatever). And you don't have to pick my work - it's not going to increase your chances of winning (though it might make me blush). Just make sure you reference "Crossing the Streams" when you enter, so I know it's not some weird literary spam, heh.
I will select TWO winners: one for the answer I think is the best, and one at random. That way, even if you don't think your explanation is very interesting, you'll still have a shot at winning. And of course, everyone who enters is also in the running for the big "SUPER WINNER" prize at the end of the contest.
ETA: I've decided that if I get 100 likes on my FB page by the time the contest is over, I will select one ADDITIONAL random winner. So that's THREE opportunities to win, and all you have to do is click that little "thumbs up" button. (Well, and actually enter the contest, but you can do that while you're liking the page, so, hey - two-fer!) So, what are you waiting for?
Entries must be received (via one of the methods mentioned above) between February 1st and February 29th, 2012.
Easy, right? My
two three winners, and the "SUPER WINNER", may choose any ONE of the following prizes.
Any questions? Drop me an email and I'll do what I can to clarify.
My Partners in Crime
As I said, there are over a dozen of us involved in this. You can find names, and links, here.
But do me (and yourself) a favor. When you go to enter their contests (and you know you will), don't just look at the contest page. Everyone involved in this contest is a great author or artist. If you like my stuff, you're sure to like at least some of theirs. (It's okay if you like mine better, though. Heh.) So take a few minutes. Browse a bit and see if anything catches your eye. Then, you know, maybe buy it? I know they'd all love you forever for it, just like I do. ;)
Thanks, and good luck!
