September Giveaway: Rare SDCC Exclusive THE ELFSTONES OF SHANNARA

cover-elfstones-sdccTerry and I attended the San Diego Comic-Con in support of The Shannara Chronicles.

You guys have seen the pictures. You guys have seen the trailers. You guys know The Shannara Chronicles will air in January 2016.

But many of you asked me one question upon my return home:

How do I get one of those Comic-Con exclusive copies of The Elfstones of Shannara?!

My answer did not make you happy. The reality is, it is nigh impossible to get one. There were only 2000 produced and they were given out in their entirety at Comic-Con via the MTV booth as well as the Del Rey Books booth. And like all exclusives, you had to be at the convention to get one—or find one on the secondary market like (which there seem to be a few, by the way).

But my wife and I brought six of these home, knowing that hosting a series of monthly giveaways from now until January would soften the blow somewhat.

I am using these books to help grow awareness for The Shannara Chronicles. That involves all of you. You guys are the vehicle to spread word about the TV series and make it an out-of-the-gate success.

Here are the Rules for the September Facebook Giveaway:

  • Contest open to the entire world.
  • Only one entry per person. Anyone who enters twice or more is automatically disqualified.
  • Contest ends September 30, 2015.
  • Winner randomly selected.
  • Must change your Facebook cover image for the entire month of September. Details below!

First: Save this image to your computer:


Second: Upload the image to your Facebook page via the upload button in the upper-left of your cover image, then on the image post make sure it is set to “PUBLIC” as seen below:


Third: Re-position the image to your liking!

Finally: Once you have done that, fill out the entry form below, leaving your name, email address, mailing address, and link to your Facebook page for verification of the upload! Then click SUBMIT! Those who entered in August must re-enter for September!

It’s that easy. You are done and entered into the giveaway!

I know, I know, some of you don’t use Facebook. September is the last Facebook giveaway. In the coming months there will be additional giveaways—for Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, a general giveaway for everyone, etc.! Post any questions you might have below and I’ll answer them when I can.

Go forth! And spread word about…

The Shannara Chronicles!
