That’s quite a mouthful, eh? Well, buckle up, bitches. The shit show that is our Christmas promotion begins today. Click on the festive image below to visit our event page, where all the fun begins.
A little nervous about clicking strange links? Well, I’ll tell you what’s happening. Because Christmas is a big deal, the Dolls wanted to do something a little different from the typical virtual party. This year, we’ve concocted a game for you all to play. Winners will receive some pretty awesome prizes, and the rest of you will just have some good not so clean fun.
The event page will be open on Facebook throughout, so you’re all welcome to comment, ask questions, and play some reindeer games of your own. DDP authors will be checking the page periodically and updating prizes, maybe posting mini-games, etc.
So this time, we’re playing a game that lasts 12 days. I know, WTF, right? But listen, it’s easy. Each day of this shit show, we’re going to feature a Deviant Dolls author or a publisher/group at least one of us are affiliated with. (For example, DarkFuse is giving up a pretty awesome prize, as well as Authors & Dragons). We’ll also ask you guys three questions. The answers to those questions will be relevant to whoever/whatever is featured that way.
Rules of the Game
Follow the day’s featured author on Twitter. (So if it’s Renee’s day, you follow her on Twitter. We’ll give you the Twitter handles as well on her feature day.)
You can like their page on Facebook too, if you feel so inclined. You might also find it helpful to follow Deviant Dolls on Twitter (@DeviantDollsPub), because many clues or hints will be given there as well.
Check in here (the event page) around noon December 11th to December 22nd. On the first day, which is today, we’ll welcome everyone and try to answer any questions you might have. The game will not begin today, but there may be a couple of freebies up for grabs.
On December 12th, we’ll feature the first author, which means we’ll post the first question you must answer. These questions will be posted at the same time each day. (12:00pm EST) The clue to the answer to said question will be found within an hour of posting on the author’s (or DDP’s) Twitter page. When you think you have the answer, message us on the Deviant Dolls Facebook page, and if you’re correct, you’ll receive the second question.
Now, the second question will be a little more difficult, because you may not receive any clues to the answer, but a few of us aren’t hardasses and will leave crumbs for you on social media. Anyway, when you think you have the correct answer for question two, message us again, and if you’re correct, you’ll receive the final question.
When you have the answer to the final question, send a message again. The reader who gets all three correct answers the fastest (our messages are all time-stamped, yay, technology!) wins the prize. In the event of a tie, then we will use a skill testing question or something ridiculous to decide the winner.
When someone has won, we’ll announce it here, on this page.
On the final day, there will be no questions. It’s a day of shits and giggles on the event page, where bonus prizes for runners-up will be given, so if you want play until you’ve answered all questions, that’s fine too. Only way to be a runner up is to officially answer all questions for at least one day.
There you go. Come on over to Facebook and play with us.
