With a little over two weeks to go until the big day – October 13th, for those who may have forgotten already – we’re happy to announce that Tower of the Hand: A Flight of Sorrows now has its own Facebook page. You can find it here:
Even more exciting, however, is what having our own Facebook page means: contests. Lots of them. Every single week for the next several weeks. And the prizes will make any hardcore Song of Ice and Fire fan frisky – or so we hope, at least. We’ll be giving away free copies of the ebook (before the publication date!), the chance to have your own analysis featured prominently at Tower of the Hand, exclusive content literally available nowhere else, and a guest host spot for a future episode of A Podcast of Ice and Fire. And there may be a few more surprises thrown in for good measure, too. Just sayin’.
What’s the first contest? Ten lucky winners will get an exclusive sample of another one of the book’s essays: “You Win or You Sit the Bench: Power Ranking – NFL-style – the Top Contenders in the Game of Thrones,” by fantasy author Douglas Cohen. You’ll get the chance to read it in its entirety and then have your thoughts and reactions posted online for all of the Song of Ice and Fire community to see. Agree with Doug’s picks? Disagree? Think he’s way off for the story’s endgame? The whole world will get the chance to know.
So what do you have to do to win? It’s a very complicated two-step process:
1. Like Tower of the Hand: A Flight of Sorrows’s Facebook page.
2. Post a comment on the page. Anything you like – “hullo,” “I love A Podcast of Ice and Fire,” “I think your book’s dumb because…” Whatever you want. We just want the chance to get to know you better.
The ten winners will be chosen completely at random. The contest starts now and ends Sunday night at 11:59 pm EST.
