Gnome Stew now has a mailing list. Here’s the skinny:
Want to receive occasional emails from Gnome Stew, emphasis on occasional?
If you change your mind, you can unsubscribe any time. We’ll never share your email address with anyone, period.
Every now and then, we’ll share something with you that we think you’ll be interested in — like the opening of preorders for our next book, Phil Vecchione’s Never Unprepared, or if a meteor is about to strike the Earth. Things like that.
We think this will help us stay connected with occasional as well as regular readers, and if that sounds good to you I hope you’ll consider signing up. And you could win cool stuff!
Win cool gaming stuff
We can’t go five minutes without having a giveaway of some sort, and this is no exception! Here’s the lowdown:
- To be eligible to win, you need to subscribe to our mailing list and be a current subscriber as of May 24, 2012, at whatever time I get a chance to randomly select the winners.
- Winners will be chosen randomly from all mailing list subscribers. (Members of the Gnome Stew team aren’t eligible, of course.) Every subscriber is eligible to win one prize.
- We want folks to spread the word, so we’ve set thresholds for unlocking new prizes depending on how many readers sign up (see below). The more subscribers we get, the more stuff we’ll give away.
We’re giving away the following, with more prizes given away the more subscribers we get:
- Grand Prize: A $75 gift certificate to DriveThruRPG and PDF copies of our first two books, Eureka and Masks (a $26.95 value)!
- Second Prize (unlocked at 100 subscribers): A $35 gift certificate to DriveThruRPG and PDF copies of our first two books, Eureka and Masks (a $26.95 value)!
- Third Prize (unlocked at 250 subscribers): A $20 gift certificate to DriveThruRPG and PDF copies of our first two books, Eureka and Masks (a $26.95 value)!
- More Prizes (unlocked at 500 subscribers): We’ll give away three more sets of our first two books, Eureka and Masks, in PDF (each a $26.95 value)!
- Still More Prizes (unlocked at 750 subscribers): We’ll give away another SIX sets of our first two books, Eureka and Masks, in PDF (each a $26.95 value)!
- OMG Yet More Prizes (unlocked at 1,000 subscribers): We’ll give away ANOTHER NINE sets of our first two books, Eureka and Masks, in PDF (each a $26.95 value)!
In other words, if a thousand people subscribe to our mailing list, we’ll be giving away $130 in gift certificates and over $550 worth of Engine Publishing books — and you’d have a total of 21 chances to win a prize.
Thanks for reading, I hope you’ll sign up, and here’s the mailing list signup page one more time. Good luck!
