Original Art Giveaway!

In my recent post, I’ve shared with you that Steve Bryant’s Athena Voltaire Compendium, a 224-page, $19.99 hardcover from Dark Horse / Pulp Sequentials, is available for pre-order during the month of August. I have seen this available for as low as 50% off by one of the online retailers, even when this book should be a must-buy even at the ridiculously-low cover price of $20!
Since the success of this book hinges so much on the preorders, I thought up of a little crazy competition that anyone can participate by preordering the book. The Prize is an original Athena Voltaire 11″x17″ art that I’d drawn back in 2010:
I’ll pay for the shipping of this to the winner’s address in Continental US.

How will the the Winner be determined? By most copies of Athena Voltaire Compendium pre-ordered by ONE individual! I did mention that this was a crazy idea, right?

To qualify, I need you to post on Twitter or Facebook or Google+ tagged with #AVCompendiumGiveAway, a snapshot of the proof (invoice or receipt) that shows the qty & your name. From now until midnight of 9/5, you can “up the ante” as many times as you want. If we have multiple entries at the highest count, I’ll do a random draw for the ultimate winner. The winner will be announced on Monday, 9/8 and the original art will be shipped to the winner after he/she sends in a photo confirmation of the books in possession. To make it fair, this contest is open only to individuals that purchased the books for personal use (it’ll make a great gift to family & friends!), not solely for resale. Please make sure you remove any personal info on the proof photos, and if you’d rather not post it online but still want to participate in the contest, please email me directly at junbobkim (at) gmail.com.

Also, because there’s already a person that has purchased 5 copies of the book, so technically, you need to have pre-ordered at least 5 copies to be in the running.

Good luck!!!
