Great news! I have received the full color proof of the cover for The Academy! That means we are only weeks away from its release. With this announcement I am finally able to announce the contest I have been promising since the inception of this website. The winner of this contest will get a free autographed copy of the print edition of The Academy. The contest is simple. Go back and re-read The Enemy of an Enemy, and guess which character from that novel will be the main character of The Academy. Here is a hint, it is not Grandmaster Vydor!
The basic rules of the contest are simple. Contestants will email firstname.lastname@example.org their guess (Note: This a temporary email address set up for just this contest, please use the contact form for all other contact as no replies will be sent from that address), and the first email that I receive with the correct answer will win. One entry per household please, open to anyone who has not yet read The Academy. I will cover shipping of the autographed book to anywhere in the continental US via the USPS. If the winner’s shipping address is outside that area, I will be happy to ship anywhere else at the winner’s expense. In the event that I am unable to tell the exact order of the emails arrival, a winner will be randomly chosen using http://www.random.org/ to fairly pick one winner. The contest will remain open until a winner is chosen, or The Academy is officially released.
