Welcome to the Great Proof Giveaway!
Welcome to the winners! Louie, Jana, Ryan, and google007!
IMPORTANT: Do not reply to this post until you've read the rules. You may only reply to this post once. This is very important. That's why I capitalized "important" over there <--
I have one, possibly two, of the fantastical, uber-amazing, awesomest proof copies you've ever seen. Haven't seen them yet? Check the vid, yo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YUseXD-MBw
These things are HOT, HOT, HOT! Like this damn summer, hot. It's illegal to sell them, and I figure they're priceless anyway, so I'm giving one or two sets away. Here's all you have to do:
1. Read WOOL 1-5 (most of you probably already have, right?)
2. Start a thread introducing yourself here on these forums (you have to sign up first, which is like step 1.5, for those of you who are irrationally picky about such things). Here's the link to the Introduction Forum.
3. Post in this thread a link to your introduction thread and bit of your thoughts about the series. You can copy/paste your Amazon or Goodreads review if you want. Or you can type something new. Just let me hear it, good bad or indifferent.
That's it. Three steps (3.5 if you're being picky).
This will go on for two weeks. I'll be out of town during that time, which works well. Around the end of the month or so, I'll close this thread and call the competition over. At that point, we'll select winners based on a proven and random method: I'll roll dice. Probably some cool D&D dice. I'll do it live on uStream so you can tune in and see if you win. There may be dancing involved. It should be a very good time.
If you have questions or comments, post them in the discussion thread made specifically for the Proof Giveaway.
Mod add: You can get a signed copy of any of Hugh's other works by going to his main page (http://www.hughhowey.com), and scroll to below the image that says "BUY ME A COFFEE"--click on the image of any of his books, and it will take you to a page where you can buy a signed copy.
ADDITIONAL STEP ADDED BY CRANKY MOD: PLEASE DON'T POST SPOILERS! (Unless you've figured out how to use the "spoiler" forum feature.)
IF YOU NEED HELP, PLEASE ASK! MESSAGE A MOD! (LisaKW, Rockinruby, and tink)
7/22 MOD EDIT: Some people were considered disqualified from the contest due to incomplete entries. If anyone had created a separate introduction thread but did not post a link in this thread, we did that for you. But we could not do that for those of you who did not create your own introductions. However, because Hugh is generous, we're reinstating all entries (aside from accidental duplicates). Also, earlier, all mod posts were removed that were not entries, so we should be good to go! GOOD LUCK, ALL!
