That is right, to celebrate our fantastic range of Steampunk books this month, we are running a competition to win a Kindle. But not just any Kindle. A Steampunked Kindle. Which we will pre-load with five of our books, including Kell’s Legend, King Maker, Servant of the Underworld, Crown of the Blood and The World House.
And this is what you can expect:
Sadly, although I have been working hard on my clockwork and copper skills, I am not quite up to the necessary levels of technical skill to complete the conversion myself – so we have used those alchemical geniuses over at Gelaskins to do the work for us… and a fine job they promise to do too!
So, how can you get yourself involved in this fantastic competition? Easy. We love Steampunk. Everything Steampunk. And we can’t get enough of quirky outfits, laptops encased in wood and copper. The whole shebang. So….
Send us your examples of cool Steampunk stuff – maybe it is a photo of you in your leather and copper get up, or a picture of a day-to-day item that you have converted into a glorious piece of Steampunk tech. Maybe it is a quick sketch you jotted down in a notebook. Hell – it could even be a Steampunk inspired song you have written and performed – or perhaps a Haiku that has been spinning round the inside of your skull for the last few months.
Pretty much anything Steampunk is eligible. Except – and this is important – for novels or short stories. We already have enough to read with all the submissions we got last month. After all we did get 990 submissions in four weeks!
Send your Steampunk awesomeness to
The best submission will win the Kindle.
Three runners-up will also get copies of all of the books that feature in our steampunk month.
The competition closes at midnight on May 15th 2011.
