This contest closes at midnight, PST on June 30th.
As many of you know, I'm having a contest to celebrate the unveiling of my book cover! You don't have to like anything or comment on anything or follow anything. You do, however, get to be creative.
Here's what I want you to do.
Recreate the cover.
Any way you want, any medium you choose. Recreate the cover (or do some sort of homage to it) and either email me a picture/video of it at miriamforsterauthor (at) gmail (dot) com or post it to my Facebook wall.
After the contest closes, I and my panel of specially chosen, arty-type people will pick the top five entries. From those entries we will randomly select one grand prize winner, a first and second runner up and two honorable mentions.
Remember when I went to see Lois Lowry talk? And came back with a secret thing I wouldn't tell you about? That secret thing was this:
A set of signed books! The grand prize winner will receive signed copies of The Giver, Gathering Blue and The Messenger, plus a pre-order of Lois Lowry's new book Son out in October.
This prize also includes a journal for writerly scribblings, and (this is my favorite part) an ARC of City of a Thousand Dolls!
First Runner Up:
ALSO gets an ARC of City of a Thousand Dolls, and a journal, along with a signed set of Alane Ferguson's Forensic Mysteries. (If you like CSI, you will LOVE these books.)
Second Runner Up:
A signed copy of the Edgar-award-winning book Icefall, by Matthew Kirby, (Such a good book!)
AND an ARC of City of a Thousand Dolls.
Honorable Mentions will both get a fifteen-dollar gift card to the online bookseller of their choice.
International entries are welcome. Please email me if you have any questions.
Go forth and create!
