Dead Ringers--Press Release

Dead Ringers--Press Release

 

Christopher Golden just unveiled a cool, creepy new contest to accompany his cool, creepy new book DEAD RINGERS - Here's an intro to the contest and to the book in Golden's own words: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 here, 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 at the contest announcement at Christopher Golden's blog, and then the judges get to choose the best and creepiest of the lot! 
ENTER YOUR PHOTO:

WHO GETS TO JUDGE: In addition to Christopher Golden, the judges deciding the winner will be 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), BRIAN KEENE (The Rising/King of the Bastards), and ANGELA BETTIS (actress, star of May, The Woman, and Drones)!

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 Christopher Golden's next novel!
And, of course, eternal glory!

DEADLINE: All photos must be posted by midnight (Eastern time) on Tuesday, November 10th.

What are you waiting for? Take that picture and enter it in the contest!
