And we’ve got our first two winners in the HOLLOWS INSIDER photo contests! K. Flanagan/A Avery and JPace have won both a signed copy of the upcoming The Hollows Insider, and a signed, frame-worthy page from the upcoming Blood Work! All I can say is that I’m very glad I did not have to pick the winner. All of the entered photos were wonderful, and I can’t thank you guys enough for coming through for me like this. If you didn’t win, there are lots of chances yet! I’ll be accepting photos for mourning vampires and mall fronts until noon today. What I’m looking for this week is down below. Good luck! And again, I can’t say enough how great you guys are. This is wonderful!
New week, new contest! Today, I’m looking for two photos.
Photo five: It’s June in San Francisco, and Ku’ Sox has been a bad boy, damaging buildings as he ravages the streets calling Rachel out. I am looking for a shot of a broken structure in a city for this one. If your photo is in San Francisco, tell me in your email just as a bonus, but it’s not necessary to win. Right now the caption will read “San Francisco building (bridge, whatever) damaged by demon-caused quake.” I’ll accept a little photoshopping if you want to add some Inderland graffiti or some such. Just as a reminder, this has to be a photo that you took, not lifted from the web.
Photo six: This one is going to require your friends,(the more, the better) and I think it’s going to be the toughest photo to come by. If you can’t drum up a crowd, I’ll also consider a closeup of someone with a protest sign.
It’s April, and citizens of Cincinnati are protesting outside the front of a city building. Pre-Turn documents concerning bio-engeneered drugs have been unearthed, and conflict has developed over what to do with them. SGR (safe genetic research) wants to study them to help cure diabetes and leukemia, historians want to put them in a museum, concerned citizens want them destroyed. Caption will read “Protesters at City Hall show their teeth as proponents clash.”
That’s it! Rules and how to enter are at the website at the contest page. Signed pages from the graphic novel BLOOD WORK up for grabs are at the website here for your perusal. (Soon as I know which pages Avery and Pace choose, I will note that they are taken) I’ll have my favorite mall and mourning vampires up for you tomorrow at the website, as well. ;-)
Just as a P.S. my weekend was kind of sucky. Rain all Sunday and most of Saturday kept me inside and out of the dirt. Made pop tarts and truffles, hung up a knife rack in the kitchen, did a bit of shoppin’ and organized the laundry room. (pout) I’ve got some pictures of my pumpkins to show you maybe on Wednesday. I’ve started them from seed this year, which I’ve not done in almost 13 years, and they finally sprouted!
