THE PRESALE IS OVER. THE KNIVES HAVE COME DOWN. THE WINNERS OF THE PACKAGES BELOW WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 21. IF YOU’D LIKE TO BUY A COPY OF DOLAN’S BOOK, YOU CAN STILL DO SO AT ANY TIME (AT YOUR LEISURE) BY GOING TO THE MAIN TWTKCD PAGE.
THANK YOU, DEAR READERS. WE LOVE YOU.
(THE INFORMATION THAT FOLLOWS IS NOW INCLUDED FOR POSTERITY.)
THE READER PACKAGE
For READERS only, one lucky winner will receive a copy of For Promotional Use Only, an ebook that includes dozens of additional stories and illustrations by Dolan!
THE GENESIS PACKAGE
For all entrants, one lucky winner will receive a copy of the first print annual of apt (originally published January, 2011), wherein we first met Dolan via his story, “Investment Banking in Reverse,” and which includes even more illustrations by the lovely Robin E. Mørk!
THE IMMATERIAL PACKAGE
For all entrants, one grand prize winner will receive “nothing,” generously donated by IMMATERIAL Journal. That’s right: nothing. Which is exciting, because you can do anything with nothing! Or maybe you can’t do anything with nothing. Let’s find out!
You may be thinking, “Hey, wait a second, I already ordered one of the presale options—what do I get?”
To be as fair as possible, we wanted to include everyone who has invested in Dolan’s book so far. For anyone who’s already purchased the book or one of the presale incentives and wants to be eligible for the giveaway, all you need to do is watch Dolan’s interview with goat farmer, Jennifer Coughlin, and answer the following question via Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr:
What is Jennifer Coughlin afraid her son will someday ask her?
That’s it! All winners will be chosen at random, and announced on Thursday, August 21. And while you’re waiting to hear about the big winners, you should check out the interview Dolan recently did at IMMATERIAL Journal.
