Limited Bookplate Giveaway #2: UK and Ireland

UPDATE: We’ve reached our 50-fan limit, and the giveaway is now closed!

United Kingdom and Ireland, you didn’t think I forgot about you, did you?

I’d originally wanted to do a giveaway for 100 fans from the UK/Ireland/Australia/New Zealand… and then I realized how unfair that might be, considering that 8am in Sydney is 10pm in London. So we split this into two giveaways!

UK and Ireland fans, I’m sorry I couldn’t make it there to tour this year. For the first 50 people to sign up from those countries, I’ll be mailing you a signed Lightbringer bookplate on November 4, 2016. Once the first 50 have signed up, that’s it. So don’t delay!

Here’s the bookplate:

Limited Bookplate Giveaway: AUS/NZ Readers!

UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed! Thank you for the enthusiastic response! If you were in the first 50 to sign up, look for your bookplate in a few weeks!

Because I’m not able to make it to Australia or New Zealand this book tour — I’m hosting a bookplate giveaway! For the first 50 people from those countries who fill out the below form, I will sign and mail you a free bookplate to place in the inside front cover of The Blood Mirror. Bookplates will be shipping November 4, 2016.

Here’s an example:

This will likely go quick, and once we have all 50, that will be it, so sign up now!

Halloween Costume Contest 2016

UPDATE: The contest is now closed. We will be announcing winners on Wednesday, November 9! Thanks to all who participated!

In honor of the release of The Blood Mirror, we’ll be hosting a new Halloween Costume Contest — featuring you in a costume inspired by the Lightbringer or Night Angel series!

We’ve had some great entries in previous years:

Liv Danavis
red-yellow-color-wight
Red-Yellow Color Wight
nightangel
Vi Sovari and Kylar Stern

And this year, we’d like to see yours!

GRAND PRIZE:

A complete hardcover signed set of The Lightbringer Series (from The Black Prism through the Blood Mirror) — all personalized by Brent, PLUS an exclusive preview of the final book in the Lightbringer Series, with three never-before-seen chapters!

SECOND PLACE:

The first three books of The Lightbringer Series in trade paperback, plus a signed hardcopy of The Blood Mirror.

THIRD PLACE:

A signed hardcopy of The Blood Mirror.

FOURTH PLACE:

Four signed bookplates.

 

Rules:

1. Entries may be submitted starting today until Monday, November 7th at 5pm Pacific Standard Time.

2. Entry must include a picture of you in a costume inspired by the Night Angel Trilogy or The Lightbringer Series (go HERE to check out the Night Angel character sketches for inspiration), along with a one or two sentence description.

3. International entries are allowed and encouraged!

4. As long as the costume is materially yours, some Photoshop is fine (no presenting characters from movies or video games by putting a gloss of Photoshop on it and saying it’s your costume).

5. Two entries allowed per person, but you can only win once.

6. The subject line of the email should read: 2016 Costume Contest

7. Address the email to elisa @ brentweeks.com (no spaces; and as in previous years, Brent will be selecting the winners).

8. The costume must be family-friendly (as usual, we’d like to display the best entries on the website and we can’t do that if it’s not appropriate for younger fans).

9. Other:

Video submissions are allowed, but Brent is judging the costume, not the video. Brent will judge costumes individually if you have two people in a photo, but only one person will receive a prize. You must be 18 or older to win (younger participants are welcome, but by law I can’t give you a prize). No purchase is necessary. Odds of winning are based on the number of entries. We will notify winners via email; you must respond within 7 days, or another winner will be chosen. The grand prize is worth approximately $100. Second place is worth approximately $60. Third place is worth approximately $30. Fourth place is worth about $15.

Winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 9, 2016.

Fan Art Tuesdays: @arturkel

The ever so talented @arturkel has made this incredible artwork for us to enjoy! Wetboy wrapped in shadows and weilding the huge black sword, Retribution. Either Kylar Stern or Durzo Blint, hard to say since they’re both such imposing figures. Kylar and Durzo are both classified as a Wetboy, an extremely lethal and magically gifted warrior. Both characters are from the Night Angel trilogy by @androssguile. #brentweeks #thenightangeltrilogy #wayofshadows #shadowsedge #beyondtheshadows #fantasynovel #fiction #fantasy #bookworm #bookish #instabook #ilovereading #bookstagram #goodreads #authorsofinstagram #draw #drawing #character #instadraw #instaart #fantasyart #ilovefantasyart #durzoblint #durzo #wetboy #fanart #kylarstern #theshadow #kakari #nightangel
