Will she command the perch in Smallville Lake to attack puny Kal-El?
Oops, wrong post!!
Here’s the short version:
The AICN address to which you can send entries is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you win the AICN contest? My friends, extra-dreamy filmmaker-author-actress Amber Benson and prolific not-as-attractive novelist Christopher Golden, will autograph a free copy of their new book for you.
If you win the overall contest? T-shirt!! Plus? The insanely adorable Amber will phone you and coo at you for 10 minutes if you’re not super-rude or super-creepy. And if you prove super-charming? Rumor has it she could hang on for as long as 11, 12 or even 12.5 minutes!! Adam Busch will never know what hit him!
I think I got that right. If not? The long, official version:
Here it is, folks, the Official Ghosts of Albion Suggest-a-Ghost Contest!
To celebrate the release of the first full-length GHOSTS OF ALBION novel, ACCURSED, we have created a simple contest, with an opportunity for those who enter to win a FREE AUTOGRAPHED COPY, signed by both authors and inscribed to the winners. And, yes, there will be multiple winners.
Our partners in this contest are www.aintitcoolnews.com, www.shocklines.com, The Cemetery Dance Insider newsletter available through www.cemeterydance.com and Brian Freeman's Stephen King Newsletter, which you can sign up for at http://www.stephenkingnews.com/
One winner will be chosen from each of those sites, and TWO winners will be chosen from entries made through www.ghostsofalbion.net. Each of those SIX winners will receive a free, personalized, autographed copy of the book. From those six, an overall winner will be chosen to also receive a free GHOSTS OF ALBION t-shirt, and a phone call from Amber Benson.
So what do you have to do? It’s simple, really. Suggest a figure from British history to be a ghost in a future Ghosts of Albion story. Your choice may be anyone who was British by birth or citizenship, who was famous or infamous enough for there to be at least some historical background available, and who died PRIOR to 1840. Please note the name of the deceased, the years of their birth and death, and, very briefly, your reasoning why you think that person would make an excellent choice for inclusion in GHOSTS OF ALBION. Also include your name.
Please note, only one ghost suggestion per person, PER SITE. That means you can enter once at each of the contest partner sites as well (with DIFFERENT SUGGESTIONS, of course). No one will win more than once. If the same person were to win at two different sites, the best of the two suggestions would count and the other would be disqualified. But entering different suggestions at the different sites gives you additional chances to win.
Amber and Chris will choose the suggestions they like best from each contest partner, and TWO from www.ghostsofalbion.net Of the final six, they will choose their absolute favorite to be the overall winner.
The contest begins on Thursday, October 20th, and entries will be accepted through Halloween—Monday, October 31st.
Meanwhile, don’t forget that GHOSTS OF ALBION: ACCURSED goes on sale Wednesday, October 25th. Pick it up for Halloween! And don’t forget that the prologue and first eight chapters are being serialized right now at www.ghostsofalbion.net Drop by for a taste.
GHOSTS OF ALBION. Darkness is Their Inheritance
**Fine print: winning suggestions may or may not actually be used in future Ghosts of Albion stories.
**Advice: don’t suggest King Arthur. Ain’t gonna happen.
Chris adds this:
If you want, you can also mention that anyone who orders the book from www.shocklines.com between now and November 1st will get it signed by Amber and myself at no additional cost.
