News: Issue 3 Pre-launch Buzz Contest

Friday, July 18, 2008

Issue 3 Cover - by Zak Jarvis

Issue 3 is an amazing creation, crammed full of stories and art, with poems, Flash fiction and an entertaining report to leaven the mix. Whether we're battling a mechanical daemon in "A Song, a Prayer, an Empty Space" or experiencing jealousy towards unusual rivals in "Soon You Will Be Gone and Possibly Eaten", we're following the theme of Mechanical Flight into strange and unexpected places (and at times flying further afield).

Here's the (self-referential) Pre-launch Buzz Contest: blog about the launch contest with a link back to this post--then leave a comment at this post with a link to your blog post.  You'll be entered to win A FULL SET OF GUD, HARDCOPY (Issues 0-3). If we don't receive at least 100 entries, we reserve the right not to award this prize, so BE SURE TO TELL YOUR FRIENDS!  You've got seven days to help spread the word (give or take -- through the end of Friday, Pacific Standard Time) NOTE: Round 1 of this contest is over, but it's been extended!

BONUS: First ten entries win a PDF of Issue 3!  And we'll spread a few more goodies around if response warrants it. :)

BONUS 2: Everyone creating an account gets a freebie from Issue 3 just for signing up (it'll be in your account, waiting).  Everyone who already had an account?  You've got a new freebie waiting for you, too.

What's in Issue 3?

SO SPREAD THE WORD! :D


- reddit, digg, facebook, stumbleupon, etc... please! ;)

Most excellentness; though one thing: hardcopy != hardcover. That would be something :)

Something to tuck in the back of our minds. :)

No worries, we've got you covered. :) It uses a subset of standard html as opposed to bbcode. I really should make it mention something like that. Thanks! :)

I'm not sure why my first link didn't work, but the other two do, so I guess it doesn't matter. Cross-posting is a GUD thing.
