Yes, thaaaaaa's right.
You guys blew me away with your entries for the Of Triton bookmark contest. (Truly. Madly. Deeply.)
Soooo I've decided to hold a contest for creating the book trailer for Of Triton. Now, since book trailers involve a bigger time investment than designing a book mark, I've decided to offer prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. If you're an aspiring writer, you'll be interested in these prizes. If you're a reader, you'll be interested in these prizes.
If you're both, you're super duper interested.
A FULL manuscript critique from my agent, the magnificent-in-every-way Lucy Carson of The Friedrich Agency.
A $100 gift card to Barnes & Noble.
You get to name a major character in OF NEPTUNE, the third and final installment in the Syrena Legacy series.
A 50 page manuscript critique from my agent, the magnificent-in-every-way Lucy Carson.
A $50 gift card to Barnes & Noble.
A signed (and/or personalized) copy of OF TRITON.
A query letter critique from my agent, the magnificent-in-every-way Lucy Carson.
A $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble
Here are the rules:
1.) You have to use the blurb for OF TRITON to create the trailer. As in, you get no extra spoilers. I'm not saying you HAVE to include a single word from the blurb (but it's a good idea), I'm just saying that's all you have to go on. And remember, the goal is to make the viewer want to read the book right-freaking-now.
2.) The trailer should be at least 30 seconds long. (This is a suggestion, not a strict rule.)
3.) By entering, you agree that you have access/rights to all content used in the trailer. As in, some dude's not coming after for me for using his music/images when I post the crap out of this book trailer. And post the crap out of it, I will.
4.) By entering, you agree that I can post it wherever the fancy strikes me. I'm going to be bragging about this, rest assured. If you're one of those shy artist types, this contest is not for you. You also NEED to include your information in the credits. GIVE YOURSELF CREDIT, peoples! Show the world the shiz you can do!
5.) The contest is open to US/Canada residents only. For legal reasons only, I promise. I LOVE my international fans. Sorry. :(
6.) When your entry is complete, email it to byannabanks (at) gmail (dot) com as an attachement. You are not officially entered if I do not respond to your email indicating I've received it! Feel free to harass me until I acknowledge receipt. Seriously.
7.) Have fun. Because if you don't, and you stress out about it, then you'll hate me, and possibly Galen, and I couldn't stand for that. Mkay?
UPDATE: DEADLINE IS APRIL 30th!
