UPDATED 6/3/15: Both giveaways are officially over. Thanks to everyone who participated!
Original Article: It’s been a real honor to bring news, reviews, opinion articles, and everything in between to you dear reader and I’m completely surprised it has already been an entire year! There’s no better way for me to celebrate that anniversary than by thanking all my readers, as you’re the reason why I started this crazy venture in the first place and will be the reason I keep the Manor up and running for years to come. But while words are since, my actions will show my true appreciation: I’ll be doing two giveaways, with the first one starting Monday, June 1st on our official one-year anniversary! Check out all the details and prizes below!
The Day One Giveaway is the trilogy collection of Ian Doescher’s William Shakespeare’s Star Wars series, which not only includes all three original trilogy adaptations in a swanky box, but also a giant poster with the Shakespeareian versions of iconic Star Wars characters. I’ve reviewed Verily, A New Hope and The Empire Striketh Back and highly recommend them to any fan. So if you haven’t had a chance to enjoy these wonderful masterpieces of iambic pentameter or just want to gift them to someone else, now’s your chance to get them for free. Due to shipping costs, this will be a U.S. only giveaway, sorry (won’t be the case with Day Two…)! There will be two ways to enter: 1) At 9 A.M. CST June 1, a tweet will go live from our official site’s Twitter account, @MynockManor, which you must retweet. It’ll say: “Anon! RT this and Follow for a chance to win our William Shakespeare’s #StarWars Trilogy giveaway! (U.S. only)” You’ll have until 11:59 P.M. CST on June 1st to retweet. 2) If you don’t have Twitter, starting at 9 A.M. CST till 11:59 P.M. CST June 1, you can send an e-mail to the site at email@example.com and in the subject line write, “Shakespeare Giveaway.” Please note: an e-mail and retweet do not count as two entries!
The Day Two Giveaway (open worldwide) will be digital download codes for two of the current Marvel Star Wars comic series, Star Wars (the first 5 issues) and Princess Leia (the first 3 issues), which you will be able to redeem here. So far the Marvel team has been batting 1000 with each series, contributing intriguing new moments with characters we love and adding exciting new characters/places/ships/beings as they open up the canonical universe like never before! I’ve been reviewing each issue released so far, so once you’re done reading your new comics, come on back here for my insights into the new on-goings with all your favorite characters. There will be two ways to enter: 1) At 9 A.M. CST June 2, a tweet will go live from our official site’s Twitter account, @MynockManor, which you must retweet to enter. It’ll say: “RT and Follow for a chance to win digital codes for both the @Marvel #StarWars and #PrincessLeia comic series! ” You’ll have until 11:59 P.M. CST on June 2nd to retweet. 2) If you don’t have Twitter, starting at 9 A.M. CST till 11:59 P.M. CST June 2, you can send an e-mail to the site at firstname.lastname@example.org and in the subject line write, “Marvel Digital Giveaway.” Please note: an e-mail and retweet do not count as two entries!
The winner for the Day One Giveaway will be chosen June 2nd and the winner of the Day Two Giveaway will be chosen June 3rd. For the Day One Giveaway winner, please allow some time to receive your prize due to shipping. Both winners will be chosen by random.
With all that being said, thanks for stopping by the Manor, good luck to everyone, and hope to have you as a guest again in the near future. And with tons of new Star Wars content incoming, there’ll be plenty of opportunities for you to stop by again (and maybe you could be contributing to site to help bring that content to your fellow fans)!
