Time to get your evil on! (And your photoshop skills!)
In The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Robert Louis Stevenson said “in each of us, two natures are at war — the good and the evil.” For the DEAD RINGERS Photo Contest, I want to see both of your natures on display. As the novel opens, Frank Lindbergh is assaulted in his home by a man who wears his face and Tess Devlin runs into her ex-husband on a Boston street…which is impossible, because her ex is out of state, on vacation with his new girlfriend. You can read more about the book below, but what you really want to know about is THE CONTEST!
WHAT YOU DO: Create a photo of yourself or a friend being menaced by your (or his or her) evil twin! Subtle or very unsubtle, quiet or bloody, however you want to compose it. If you’re a real life twin, all the better for you (no photoshop required). Post the photo on my Facebook author page (www.facebook.com/christophergoldenauthor), and then the judges get to choose the best and creepiest of the lot!
WHO GETS TO JUDGE: In addition to yours truly, the judges deciding the winner will be actress ANGELA BETTIS (May/The Woman/Drones), author and actress AMBER BENSON (The Witches of Echo Park/Buffy the Vampire Slayer), authors JONATHAN MABERRY (Joe Ledger series/Rot & Ruin series), SARAH PINBOROUGH (The Death House/Mayhem), and BRIAN KEENE (The Rising/King of the Bastards)!
WHAT YOU WIN: An All-New Kindle Paperwhite (valued at $119-$139)!!! TWO Hardcover, Signed, Personalized copies of DEAD RINGERS (one for you and one for the evil twin of your choice, natch)!!! A character named after you in my next novel!!! And, of course, eternal glory!!!!
WHEN TO ENTER: All photos must be posted by midnight (Eastern time) on Tuesday, November 10th! That means you have “forty days and forty nights” to get the photo in (a nod to that next novel I was talking about).
WHO TOOK ALL THESE GREAT EXAMPLE PHOTOS: My very talented friend Shivohn Kacy Fleming put these together, just to give you an idea of what you’re shooting for. Thanks Shivohn! (She’s one of the models, too, as is the great Kasey Lansdale, in a guest appearance!)
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? A FREE KINDLE PAPERWHITE, TWO SIGNED HARDCOVERS, AN APPEARANCE IN MY NEXT NOVEL, AND ETERNAL GLORY WILL BE YOURS IF YOU WIN….THE DEAD RINGERS PHOTO CONTEST!!
