A few weeks ago I reviewed King of Thorns by Mark Lawrence and gave it a 9/10 (and I also reviewed the first book in the Broken Empire series, Prince of Thorns, and gave it 9/10). Well guess what? Mark has offered up some signed paperbacks of King of Thorns for bloggers to give away. Isn’t that awesome?
NOTE 15 June 2013: This contest is now closed.
So I will be hosting a competition to win a signed paperback from Mark Lawrence. I will also put up a Kindle edition for second place. How can you win, you ask?
All you have to do is answer the following question:
The Broken Empire series is set in a Europe 1000 years after nuclear war destroyed modern civilisation, and some of the buildings from our time have survived, adapted for new use in a world that has forgotten most of what has come from the modern era. What kind of an impression might a landmark from our time have on Jorg and his contemporaries and why?
(The landmark doesn’t have to be in Europe, just constructed or formed within the last few centuries.)
To enter, reply to this post by 23:59 British Summer Time Friday 14th June (almost exactly one week from now) and I will pick the winners and post an announcement here on Ally’s Desk. I’ll contact the winners to get their address/email and notify Mr Lawrence of the first place, signed paperback winner and he’ll send them a copy.
Update as of 8 June: I was mistaken in thinking this was UK only. I was wrong! Enter from wherever you are worldwide. The above has been changed to reflect this.
