The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Shopping intensifies, packages arrive, anticipation builds, and we look forward to seeing what presents are headed our way this year.
Let’s admit it—we all love receiving gifts. If you’re a bookworm, what’s better than getting a free book? (The correct answer is NOTHING!)
Speaking of which, I have a surprise for you. Well, if you read the title of the post, it isn’t a surprise. But it’s still awesome. That’s right, I’m talking about a giveaway—the first of what I hope will be many. Which means you get a chance to win a free fantasy book.
Merry Christmas a few weeks early.
Surely you have questions. Fear not, because I have answers.
Emissary by Thomas Locke. You can check out the description over on Amazon. The publisher has granted two copies for the giveaway, so a pair of lucky people will win. Two is always better than one, right?
Who can enter?
Sadly, due to mailing restrictions, only people in the U.S. are eligible to win.
How can you enter the giveaway?
That’s the easiest part. All you have to do is answer the question at the end of the post by leaving a comment and you’ll be entered.
How long will the giveaway last?
Two weeks. So you have until Sunday, December 13 at 11:59 pm MST to comment and have a chance to win. I’ll announce the winners on Monday, December 14. At which time I’m also planning on another exciting announcement, so keep your sharp elvish eyes open for that.
What happens if you win?
I’ll contact the two winners via email with the details. And then you’ll have a new book to explore.
Here are a couple quote graphics to pique your interest.
Now on to the main event. In any fantasy tale, a hero must step forth to do battle with the enemy. In Emissary, that task falls to Hyam. He doesn’t accept the role with glee, but he does determine to do whatever necessary. Heroes tend to be selfless like that—always putting the needs of others before their own.
Hyam is just one of thousands of such characters who have trod the pages of fantasy. Which brings me to my question.
Question: Who is your favorite fantasy hero and why?
