Tomorrow’s the big day when Terra Insegura officially hits bookstore shelves, and so, with great fanfare, I announce the Great Terra Insegura Book Give-Away Contest, twin to the very successful Marseguro give-away I ran when that book came out–except with one great exception: this time, I’m giving books to two people every week for the next month.
Here’s how it works. To enter, all you have to do is either (a) leave a comment below (with a valid e-mail address) telling me you’d like to enter or (b) email me at edward(at)edwardwillett.com to that effect (use “Terra Insegura” as the subject to be sure I don’t miss it).
This first week’s contest closes at midnight on Sunday, May 10, the second week on Sunday, May 17, the third week on Sunday, May 24, and the final week on Sunday, May 31. Each week, the first name drawn receives a copy of Terra Insegura. The second name drawn receives a copy of Marseguro. (Signed, of course.) I’ll contact the winners by email and only then ask for mailing information.
Of course, my nefarious purpose is to convince those who receive Terra Insegura to then go back and read Marseguro, if they haven’t already, while I hope those who receive Marseguro will be driven by insatiable need for more Willett words to rush out and purchase multiple copies of Terra Insegura. (A faint hope, but…)
If you don’t win one week, you’re welcome to enter again the following week, but you’ll need to send me a fresh email or leave a fresh comment.
From the author of Marseguro—The BATTLE FOR SURVIVAL returns to earth Marseguro, a water world far from Earth, is home to a colony of humans and the Selkies, a water-dwelling race created from modified human DNA. For seventy years the colony has lived in peace. Then Earth discovers Marseguro, and a strike force is sent to eradicate this “abomination.” But Marseguro has created a genetically tailored plague to use against Earth’s Holy Warriors. With the enemy defeated, the people of Marseguro feel they are safe. But Chris Keating, the traitor who signaled Marseguro’s location to the Holy Warriors, has fled to Earth, unknowingly carrying the deadly plague within him. The people of Marseguro feel they must send a ship to Earth with a life-saving vaccine. Only time will tell what awaits them when they reach their destination.
