‘The Talon of Horus’ Selfie Contest
It is an age of darkness. And also, of huge-ass black books that are easily hefty enough to use as weapons.
People will be getting their First Editions of The Talon of Horus this week/end, and that rocks on toast. I warned you I’d be asking for selfie evidence that the copies have reached their new homes, but that’s too boring. In conjunction with the demand for photographic evidence, it’s time to announce that little contest I was talking about a while back. You know the one I mean. The one with the unbelievably bad prizes, based on my excellent MS Paint cover artwork in the past.
So send me your selfies with the book, and the best three photos (or the three I choose at random if I’m feeling lazy) will win one of the fabulous prizes described in the following tweets:
I’m going to run a contest soon. The first prize will be an MS Paint picture of you and me being friends.

The second prize in the upcoming contest will be an MS Paint picture of you and me trying to be friends, but ultimately unable to bond. — Aaron Dembski-Bowden (@adembskibowden) July 2, 2014
Third prize in the upcoming contest will be an MS Paint picture of you and me failing to be friends because I don’t have time for your shit.

Oh, wow, right? Who can resist that? But wait, there’s more! I solemnly promise to not just draw you in carefully rendered artfulness, but also make the following guarantees:
- I guarantee to probably spell your name correctly.
- I guarantee to use at least two colours, and perhaps even as many as four.
- I guarantee that I won’t sell your image to the government and/or use it as target practice for my crossbow.
If these incredible prizes interest you, then you can upload your selfies to my Facebook page, my Twitter feed, or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be announced at some point in the near future.
