Tom Piccirilli and Caniglia's <br>"Choir" Sweepstakes


Hey, we offer a crapload of rare and fantastic items featuring work by the award-winning multi-talented Tom Piccirilli. Just take a look at our Tom Piccirilli section if you don't believe us. G'ahead. We'll wait for you.

We also have a crapload of amazing artwork by Caniglia, whose art and photography takes our breath away. See our Caniglia section for a reference point. Go on. Take a look.

So here's the deal. In a few months (March-Aprilish, most likely), Tom Piccirilli has a new novel coming out from Night Shade Books. It's called "A Choir of Ill Children" and it's going to be a killer, featuring amazing Caniglia original cover artwork and interior images.

So get this -- anyone who preorders the SIGNED, LIMITED EDITION OF THIS BOOK (this contest does NOT apply to the trade hardcover) by 11:59 PM EST on February 28th will be entered in a random drawing to win an autographed, limited edition 8" x 12" art print of the cover from Caniglia! Trust us, this print is going to look amazing hanging in your living room. It ships flat, is limited to only 100 signed and numbered prints, and is ready for framing.

Also, since there are only 100 of the signed, limited editions availablem you know your odds are already not too far from being the winner! Please note: if the book sells out before February 28th, then we'll have to end the promotion early (obviously).

So here's what you want to know -- how do you get your hands on this? Well, if you live in the United States, you can enter two ways:

1) If you place a preorder between January 1st at 6:00 P.M. EST and February 28th at 11:59 PM EST on our site for "the signed, limited edition of Tom Piccirilli's "A Choir of Ill Children", then you automatically are entered in our random drawing for this item. As with all advance orders, you will not be charged until the item is in-stock and ready to ship. If you make more than one purchase during that time you will only be entered once.

Please note: If you have already preordered this book from BEFORE this sweepstakes was posted, you WILL automatically be entered into this drawing.

2) You can also enter by sending a 3" x 5" postcard to us. See the official rules below for details on that option. Again, no matter how many postcards you send, you'll only be entered once.

That's it! Sorry, but this is only open to U.S. residents (international fans might want to have a U.S. friend place an order or send in a postcard for them, but the official winner MUST be a U.S. resident.) We'll do a random drawing sometime around November 10th and announce the winner. Make sure to check out the official rules below for all the gory details (damn small print).
