We have a semi-devious plan to send John to a few conventions this year (only ‘semi’ since he can see what we’re doing). Which conventions? We’re looking at Wiscon, Chicon 7 (Worldcon), and World Fantasy to name a few.
But why not make it so that you can have some fun, too? So, to that end, for every purchase or donation made from now to the end of the month will be entered into a drawing to win some fabulous prizes. What kind of prizes? Copies of John’s reprint anthology of fairy tale retellings, Happily Ever After; t-shirts; Electric Velocipede back issues; grab bags of ARCs [a list is forthcoming]; John’s editorial services; and whatever else our devious minds can think of. You can also donate convention memberships directly if you’re so inclined.
We will draw five winners on April 2, 2012 (we don’t have the heart to do the drawing on April 1) and announce who won which prizes. Obviously, if you bought a shirt, you won’t win a shirt (unless you want a second one), if you bought back issues, you won’t win back issues (again, unless that’s what you want), etc.
Hey wait! you say. What if I want to be a part of the drawing but I can’t afford to buy something!! We’ll run a second drawing in April where no purchase is necessary. Watch this space for details!
