One of my closest friends on the planet, Fantasy author Ari Marmell, has just had his first original novel make it to trade paperback (after a successful hardback run) and sees its sequel come out in Hardback next month. To celebrate, he’s giving some copies away and handed a few to me to seed to my fantasy loving readers.
Ari’s greatest quality - what I love both about him and his books - is his wry, snarky sense of humor. His books, though gritty, bloody, swashbuckling fantasy, are rife with wit and choked with laugh out loud moments. So here’s the contest: between 3PM CST Wednesday December 29th and 3pm CST Thursday December 30th I want you to make me laugh. You have 140 characters - one tweet to make me laugh. @reply me (@massawyrm) with anything on any topic and the funniest three get prizes. 2nd and 3rd place get a trade paperback copy of The Conqueror’s Shadow and 1st place gets the trade paperback plus an advance hardback copy of the soon-to-be-released The Warlord’s Legacy.
Winners will be contacted at the completion of the contest to get mailing addresses for shipment. Now, make me fucking laugh.
