To celebrate next week’s release of Something Like Fate, I’m running my largest (and last for a while) contest to win copies of the book. It’s the third annual Floor Display Contest! Starting May 4, Barnes & Noble and some indie stores will be putting up floor displays (book towers) of Something Like Fate. If you find a display and document yourself with it, you can enter to win a copy of the book from me. The floor display and header look like this:
Breaking news: B&N stores are putting up larger floor displays, called stepladders, and doing big endcaps. You can ask for either of these at the store if you can’t find their display.
Here’s how the contest works. Take a photo of yourself with the floor display. Since not all bookstores put up these displays, you can take a photo with just my books in the store or even at home. As long as the photo includes you and Something Like Fate, you can enter. Email your photo to me at friendly.neighbor [at] hotmail.com. The photo that speaks to me the most will win. Photos will be judged on creativity, originality, and overall awesomeness. You may use Photoshop or another program to alter the image in any way you’d like: adding color, text, graphics, anything that lets you express your artistic talents. Three winners will be selected!
Floor Display Contest rules:
1. Email your photo of you with either the floor display or Something Like Fate to me at friendly.neighbor [at] hotmail.com. Photo enhancement is allowed.
2. Include your full name and complete mailing address with your entry.
3. Entries must be received by 11:11 pm on Sunday, May 23.
4. This contest is only open to US residents. However, if you live abroad and have a contact in the States who can receive the prize for you, it can be sent to their address.
Prizes: Three prizes will be awarded. First prize is Something Like Fate, Waiting for You, and your choice of either Take Me There or When It Happens. Second and third prizes are both Something Like Fate and your choice of either Waiting for You, Take Me There, or When It Happens. All books will be signed to whomever you’d like, of course.
I can’t wait to see your creativity shine. Let’s get this party started!
