How would you like to win an 11X17 photographic print of the original, untitled, wrap-around cover design, signed by artist Dave J. Ford and myself? Here’s how you do it…
This is a writing challenge. In less than 350 words, introduce a character to me by describing ONLY their hands. Writers will often give descriptions of a character’s body or facial structure. We nearly always describe their eyes, but rarely have I seen a characters hands mentioned or decribed. Place your entry in the comments below until December 5, 2011. I will then post the entries on my fanpage for two days. My fans will chose the winner by “liking” the entries. The entry with the most likes by midnight on December 7th (E.S.T.), will win the print. Good Luck!! (If you’d like to see a copy of the print, you can view it HERE.
