So today is the day I launch the contest for my one and only advance copy of The Demon's Surrender.

'I only have one copy,' I wailed to people unlucky enough to be in earshot. 'What on earth can I ask for? I loved last year's art and vids and songs! How do I decide between different things?'

'Maybe,' said, or rather shouted because I was wailing, these wise people, 'if the things all had the same aim.'

So the Promotion Notion was born. And it is: to enter, do anything you like for the Demon's Lexicon series. Make a Demon's Lexicon t-shirt and wear it. Do art, make a vid, make up a song or a poem. Do a book reading at a library. Make a flier for your library. Read Demon's Lexicon for your next book group. Put up the banner below, created by the lovely orexisbella, on your blog. Write an online essay or review. Something fun, something creative. Anything you can come up with, in short.

Edited to Add: The selection will be made by a small panel of impartial judges. There will also be other prizes, some handed out randomly and some chosen by judges, and I will show them to you as the month goes on. I will try to make them fabulous!

Note: Probably actual crimes, like stealing a plane to sky-write SURRENDER TO DEMONS across the sky, should not occur. You will likely be jailed for being a thieving demon-lover. (I would be so impressed I might call you and read the book to you, but it would not be worth it. Crime doesn't pay.)

And comment here, post on marmalade_fish or email me at sarahreesbrennan@gmail.com with your links or pictures or just telling us what you did.

Let the Promotion Notion commence! And thank you very much in advance to all those who participate in it. I hope you will have fun. The contest will run for one month and end on April 7th, so get ready, get set...

This is awesome! And might I say Alan looks VERY handsome up close... ;D
Mar. 7th, 2011 02:35 pm (UTC)
Ent he cute? Serious props to S&S for finding such an attractive redheaded dude!
Mar. 7th, 2011 02:34 pm (UTC)
Alan looks so very lickable!
Mar. 7th, 2011 02:45 pm (UTC)
If criminal skywriting is out... can we create mysterious crop circle instead? Aliens love demons! Everyone knows this!
Mar. 7th, 2011 02:47 pm (UTC)
Mysterious demon's circles, maybe. ;)

I am afraid my main reaction to this post is not 'oo, what can I make re. Lexicon' but 'awww, Alan!' I just finished reading Covenant to my Friend To Whom I Read Books over the weekend, which left me (again!) with the strong urge to cuddle Alan until it is all fixed, so the poster above just makes me all protective and fond.

(Also, I have already pre-ordered Surrender, so. :))

Mission accepted. Now to find a plane- um, I mean, magic markers. I wish I were a sculptor. I'd make a statue that looked like a knife and give it to the city. Everyone would remark on its awesome and terrible beauty. I would emerge from a shadow to reply that it is only a diminished representation of the awesome and terrible Sarah Rees Brennan, but she is too exalted to gaze upon with their mortal eyes. Then I would hand out copies of DL saying, "To know Her Word is to know SRB. And all who know Her, love Her. But beware - She is not a tame writer." Ah, if I were a sculptor- but then again, no- or a man who makes potions in a travelling show... Well I'm not sure how that would help but I would be like a sexy circus-y Snape, and that can't be bad. In conclusion you are the awesomest and terriblest and I love you.

I like the hand out copies of the book preaching the Truth that is SRB. This may merit further thought...

I am now a woman on a mission. Its very unlikely that I will win, but I am going to do everything I possibly can to do so. I cannot think of a single thing that would give me greater joy than this. So, planes are out, but everything else is in. Cool. (You've just *made* *my* *day* with this chance. Hurray for SRB and ARCs!
Mar. 7th, 2011 04:09 pm (UTC)
Just to be clear (and it's completely possible I'm missing it in your post) but will you randomly pick from everyone who promotes TDL or will you pick what you think is the best? Either way I'm going to try and come up with something epic, I'm just curious.

Does dying your hair pink and telling people you're Mae from this awesome book everyone should read count? Yeah, I thought not.
Mar. 9th, 2011 10:21 pm (UTC)
Maybe. ;)

Panel of judges will choose the best one, but there will be other prizes given out randomly.

So exciting! I have a few questions because I get confused easily...

Can we enter more than once? Will the entry be chosen at random, or by whatever wows you the most, or has the deciding yet to be determined?

Thanks! I'm looking forward to participating.
Mar. 9th, 2011 10:24 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, as many entries as you like.

The entry will be judged by a panel of judges, based on criteria including the wow factor. But there'll also be randomly given out other prizes!

I guess naming my electronic dictionary 'Ryves' doesn't count, right? XD (It knows foreign languages, a lot of weird letters/characters, and has plenty of books in it... but it is also black and sexy, so I couldn't pick just one brother for naming it ^^ otherwise, I'm completely sane, I swear, mwhahaha).

Challenge accepted, I'll do my best to think something up!

What a great contest idea! Can't wait to see what people come up with...!
Mar. 7th, 2011 06:36 pm (UTC)
*flails at the awesome*

God, this is an awesome idea, but I can't help but keep getting distracted by Alan.

*valiantly does not perv*

Ok, ok. *deep breath* I shall try to use my brain for the powers of good and not for staring shamefully at the cover.
Mar. 7th, 2011 07:21 pm (UTC)

....Aaaand we're back. Awesome cover! I do like a man with a bow and arrow.
Mar. 7th, 2011 11:24 pm (UTC)
Oh Alan, you so fiiiiiii~ne! is what runs through my head every single time I see that image. Unf~ he is so my type in every way. (Physically, anyway. I do love the nerding and the shy awkwardness, but the lying would probably be a dealbreaker in the hypothetical relationship.)

Would love to win the ARC, but I think I'll be as happy eagerly awaiting the official release and buying it myself. :)
Mar. 7th, 2011 11:42 pm (UTC)
...This is the first time we're seeing this cover, right? Because I can't imagine how I could have missed that one. HOMG.
Mar. 8th, 2011 08:49 am (UTC)
No, I put it up a few months ago... But I'm glad you like!

I think the banner distracted everyone.

I've decided that Alan is Percy Weasley but with a personality and an overabundance of bad-ass-ness.
Mar. 10th, 2011 12:24 am (UTC)
Percy could totally be badass! If Voldemort needs to be defeated with thick-bottomed cauldrons, he's on it.
