Update: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for your participation!
Readers, you’re in for a treat today—I have a new giveaway to share with prizes for three lucky readers. Chopsticks is an innovative new novel created by Rodrigo Corral and Jessica Anthony, that incorporates a physical book, an iPhone/iPad app and a website.
Chopsticks was born out of the desire to tell a story with multiple medias, without losing the fundamental truths which make reading fiction an emotional human experience.
The novel’s digital format will still allow you to encounter the lives of Frank and Glory, the characters that fill the pages, but the additional videos, songs and digital links will create a new novel experience.
Chopsticks is a novel, an app, a website. It is a collage of original drawings, objects, text, sounds, and video. It is a love story. It is a mystery. Read it. View it. Experience it.
The Fine Print: We have three copies of the book to give away to DWL readers in the US only. Simply leave a comment on this post between now and Friday at midnight EST. Only one entry per person please. Good luck!
Here are a few spreads:
