So if you follow me or James Dashner, author of the The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure, on Twitter then you know that I suggested he form an army and well, he did. I’m a General, obvs. Our ranks are growing on Twitter and you can join the army by tweeting with the #dashnerarmy hashtag. But I digress.
The real reason I am posting is because the newest #dashnerarmy mission is to create the first official merchandise for the Dashner Army Cafepress store!
The Contest: Create a slogan and/or design for the #dashnerarmy. Obviously we encourage things related to the Maze Runner series.
The Rules: Designs must be original. You can submit as many as you want either via link on twitter (make sure both I @verbvixen and @jamesdashner are cc’ed on it). Or you can submit them via email to VerbVixen@gmail.com. The Contest is open until June 30, 2011. Winners will be chosen at the sole discretion of Verb Vixen and James Dashner.
The Prizes: The winner gets a. bragging rights, b. their design on the first official merch in the cafepress store, c. a swag pack from me including a signed copy of the first chapter of The Death Cure! The prize will include other materials, including but not limited to 1 other dystopian ARC (its a surprise yo!), autographed bookmarks from other YA authors, pins, and various sundry items. I will also pre-order your copy of The Death Cure! Runners up will also receive prizes; I’m in a giving mood.
Props to Josh David Galloway (@joshdgalloway) who pointed out this need and thus inspired this contest. Follow him and all the #dashnerarmy members on twitter by following our official #dashnerarmy list.
