WHAT IS IT?
It started with trying to figure out a way to add some extra fun/enjoyment when buying a Necessary Evil Press hardcover. Add that thought to my childhood obsession with Willy Wonka and the magical “golden tickets” and here we go. Ultimately, I decided to make up a certificate/ticket that you could find hidden in random hardcovers. There are 20 certificates for this contest and you can see all 20 prizes below. If your copy has a certificate you’ll find it inside the front cover of the book. Certificates were randomly inserted into numbered copies and no one (including us) knows what copies have a winner.
WHAT TITLES HAVE A CHANCE TO FIND A WINNER IN IT?
Three Necessary Evil Press hardcover novels are eligible in the contest. They are: ANIMOSITY by James Newman, MASTER OF THE MOORS by Kealan Patrick Burke, and DEEPER by James A. Moore.
WHEN DOES CONTEST START?
It already started. Any of the three eligible titles that ship out after March 15th, 2011 are already in play and could contain a winning certificate.
WHEN DOES CONTEST END?
Well it ends in one of two ways. Either all 20 certificates are found/claimed or all three titles sell out (whichever happens first).
