Hal Spacejock four book giveaway competition

via halspacejock (funnily enough):

.. including worldwide postage, via the Ebooks Just Published blog:

I’ve just finished reading Simon Haynes’ hilarious sci-fi, comedy adventure Hal Spacejock and enjoyed it so much that I’ve decided to run a competition to give one lucky reader the chance to win signed copies of the entire 4-book series (print edition). Here’s the deal …

Read the rest on their blog, and please note that winning this particular comp requires skill, not random luck:

Entries will be judged on their originality, creativity and humour. Don’t feel you have to limit yourself to a review. Other possibilities include writing an extra or alternative scene, some witty dialog between the main characters, a back story, critiquing a particular passage, etc, etc. Believe me, once you’ve read the book, plenty of ideas will flow.

What a nice chap ๐Ÿ˜‰

Please feel free to share the competition, even if you don’t intend to enter.

    I tried getting him to agree to a video game a year or two ago, but he didn’t bite. ๐Ÿ™‚ I wanted to brand Detritus with Spacejock goodness.

      This has happened a couple of times with other rights for the books (e.g. audio dramatisation), where someone has asked me about doing something, I’ve emailed the publisher, they’ve told me another firm is already investigating doing something along those lines, and then years later I find myself wondering what happened.

      The problem with signing a publishing contract is that they tend to grab all the other rights at the same time, which means I no longer have a say in them. I can put forward suggestions, and veto anything I don’t like, but that’s about it.

        Yeah, no worries. ๐Ÿ™‚ Not one of my best games anyway, and that was before it was written. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Though there’s _plenty_ of room for multiple games on an IP (versus, say, movies, which tend to be more strictly book per book even if they’re not strictly “book”).

        I look forward to having those issues with a publisher of my own some day :heheh:
