Welcome to “Crossing the Streams 2014,”a huge, multi-author book giveaway! This is the post for my part of the contest. (Hi!)
Uh, you’re not supposed to cross the streams…What is this?
“Crossing the Streams 2014″ is a contest where I and nearly two dozen other speculative fiction writers are running contests to win copies of our books.
Hey, I like winning copies of books! How do I enter?
Here’s how it works: Each individual author involved is running a contest on his or her own site. (The specific details vary from author to author; the contest I run on my site might be very different than the one on James’s site, or Marcy’s site, so read the rules below). Each of us will select two winners from our contest, who will receive signed copies of a book. Huzzah!
Once the 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.
Wait. So I might win like twenty free books?
Awesome! Anything else?
You can only enter each author’s contest once, but you may enter multiple contests. So you could enter here, on Marcy’s site, on Ari’s site, etc. You can enter on everyone’s site, if you want. (And even if you aren’t selected as the “super winner,” you might 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 at the bottom.
So how do I enter your contest, Erin?
Leave a comment on this post (make sure you give your real email address so I can contact you if you win) answering this question: What four fictional characters would you want in your adventuring party? They can be from any source and you don’t have to fill out the “classic roles,” but they must be fictional. If you pick characters from my books, you will be my favorite, but it won’t sway the random selection program I’ll use to decide a winner. You can just list names, list roles, or post a great big dissertation on why you want these people at your side–I’ll read them all.
OMG, this is so exciting! Should I enter now? Should I take time to think of an awesome answer?
Entries must be received between February 19 and March 19, 2014.
What do I win?
Winners of my contest will receive a signed copy of The Adversary, my latest book.
Uh, I have that already.
If you already have The Adversary or if you haven’t read any of the Brimstone Angels books and want to start at the beginning, then you can choose a Brimstone Angels/Lesser Evils pack instead.
I have those, too.
Aren’t you sweet! Well, if none of those appeal to you, I can offer you the promise of a copy of my next book Fire in the Blood, which comes out in October 2014.
What about those other authors? Are they good? Where can I enter their contests?
You can find names and links here. Everyone involved in this contest is a great author or artist–some you probably know and some who might be new to you. Check out their sites and see. You might find something you love! (And you’ll definitely be able to throw your name in for a free book or dozen.)
