Free Goblins Books For Life!
Did you know that Goblins has never been advertised? By that, I mean I’ve never spent money to get the word out about it. This is something that Danielle and I are planning on doing in the near future. We have a couple plans that we’re discussing.
But while we work on letting more people know about Goblins, so can you! How? Make a video and put it up on Youtube. It can be anything. Write and perform a song, re-enact a scene from the comic, talk about which character you like best, dance with your Big Ears plushie. Anything. Feel free to use my artwork in any way you like for this.
The Goblins Youtube Video with the most views as of my wedding day (August 4th, 2012) will receive some original Goblins artwork (a couple panels from the comic), a Big Ears plushie for each person *featured in the video (up to a maximum of five plushies), signed copies of Books 1 and 2, and a signed copy of every Goblins book that I come out with. Forever.
The Goblins Youtube Video that Danielle and I pick as our favourite (also on August 4th), will also receive original artwork, a Big Ears plushie for each person *featured in the video (maximum of five plushies) and the same “forever” deal with the signed books. We’ll make sure that that this video is different than the ‘most viewed’ video.
(* “featured” means that they’re actually a part of your video. I don’t want to see you pointing a camera at strangers in line at the bank or your Avengers poster and saying “That’s more than five people! I want FIVE plushies, Thunt”. Voice actors count as people and the creator gets a plushie even if he/she is never on screen.)
Once your video is on Youtube, email me a link (my email is firstname.lastname@example.org). I’ll link all the vids on my page so you can all check ‘em out.
Or… If you’re lazy like me, you could simply tell someone about Goblins. Tell your friends, enemies, the guy who works at the corner store, that weird lady who hangs out at the bus stop smelling like cheese and yelling at the clouds… anyone. You could even put a link in your forum sig or use a Goblins character for your avatar. Although these things do help the comic, they don’t get you a prize. I told you, I’m lazy.
Some things that you should NOT do are, spam anyone (ever), pester celebrities to read/endorse Goblins, anything illegal or anything dangerous.

As always, thanks for reading!
