The Eric Carter Fan Art Photo Cosplay Whatever Contest
UPDATE: I'm hearing from a lot of people that they're not expecting to get their paperback copies of HUNGRY GHOSTS from wherever they ordered them until around February 13th. Shipping them via tramp steamer and then overland by mule? I dunno.
I'm extending the contest to FEBRUARY 15th to give people some time to get their books so they can take a photo with it for the contest.
HUNGRY GHOSTS comes out in about three weeks, and to celebrate it I'm giving away some kick-ass art by the amazing World Fantasy Award winning, Hugo Award nominated artist GALEN DARA.
Five Loteria style cards of Carter, Santa Muerte, the Bruja, Darius, and a beautiful reminder of Carter's poor life choices.
And I've got three signed sets of these babies printed on tarot sized cards with your name all over 'em.
You want 'em, you gotta earn 'em.
First, you must crawl to the top of Mount Hazzerak and defeat the Guardian of Yesterday's Tomorrows. Then, you will gather for me ten plagued rat hides from the sewers of the befouled city of Inthos in the Northern Marches. Then...
Wait, shit. No.
You gotta send me a picture.
Make some fan art; cosplay, photos, stick figure drawings, I don't care. Draw a scene from a book. Take a photo inspired by one. Show me your Santa Muerte altar. Cosplay a gender flipped character, whatever.
Or take a shot of yourself with a copy of DEAD THINGS, BROKEN SOULS, or if you get it in time, HUNGRY GHOSTS (or a shot of the cover on your Kindle, Kobo, Nook, etc.). But ya gotta surprise me with it. Make me laugh, back away slowly in horror, or more likely just call the police. MAKE IT EPIC.
*prepares for flood of disturbing yet oddly arousing images*
PROVE TO ME YOUR WORTHINESS.
Email me the pic at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 15th whereupon I WILL PIT THEM IN GODLESS BATTLE AGAINST EACH OTHER UNTIL ONLY THE FINAL THREE STAND COVERED IN THE BLOOD OF THEIR UNWORTHY OPPONENTS.
Or, you know, I'll just choose the ones I like the most, post them here and send you your cards.
Contest is open to wherever because, let's face it, 5 tarot size cards ship cheap.
And if you don't win a set, but you really want them, FRET NOT! For I shall be putting the cards up on a webstore some time in the not too distant future as well as the images on something or other I haven't decided what yet.
SO GET CRACKIN'!
