Contests’ Dates and Prizes:
LiveJournal Contest: October 29 – November 3 (Winner will be announced November 7th).
DeepGenre Contest: November 5-10 (Winner will be announced November 11th).
The Samaen “contest”: a one-day contest which works in a slightly different fashion; the rules for it will be posted at deverry15 as part of the contest announcement there on Friday evening (US time zones).
Prizes for both the LiveJournal and DeepGenre contests are:
The Winners receive an autographed hardback DAW edition of a Deverry novel; the Runners-up receive an autographed mass market paperback of a Deverry novel. The lucky name drawn for the Saamaen contest receives an autographed Deverry book plate.
Anyone, anywhere in the world, can enter. Note the dates! Entries that are submitted outside these dates will not be reviewed.
Short essay (50 words or less)
1) Email your submissions for BOTH CONTESTS to email@example.com with the subject header Contest. Only one entry per person – duplicate entries will be disqualified.
2) In the body of the email, put your full mailing address (snail mail). Without that, we can’t consider your entry.
3) Write a short essay (50 words or less) in which you talk about your favorite Deverry character. The essay should also be in the body of your email, not an attachment.
Your essay can be funny, serious, satirical, angry, or entirely straightforward (for those of you whose brains, like mine, work best with something like “I like Joe because he is honorable and noble and he always asks for rice at every meal, which I found funny.”). It’s all good. There is no hidden agenda.
4) The Deverry Contest Committee will review entries and select winners. The winner and runner-up will be notified by email, and can select the title they would like to have autographed.
