I received this email from John Shableski, the recently hired Vice President of Sales at UDON Entertainment. In a bit of brilliance, instead of shipping their display titles back to Toronto, or dealing with the ravenous hordes hoping for free books, they’ll be GIVING AWAY every title at their booth to one lucky library!
Hey! If you’re heading to the ALA show in San Francisco you really should swing by booth #219 to throw your card in for the Udon GN Library prize! Sure we have cool and nifty promotional stuff and we will be having author and artist signings. Stacy King will be signing the Manga Classics books on Friday evening. Long Vo of Street Fighter fame will be doing two signing sessions on Saturday. We have posters, book marks and FREE KITTENS!
But even better than all of that is the BIG FREE BOOK PACKAGE that we will ship directly to your library!
Here’s the scoop:
Win The One Thousand Dollar Udon GN Library!
How does it work? Come to the Udon booth (#219) in the Graphic Novel Pavilion. Simply throw your business card into the bowl and we will draw the winning entry on Monday. We will ship the books directly from the show to the winning library! Please make sure your cell phone number is on the card.
What do I win? The prize includes a copy of every Udon book on display in our booth!
The total retail value is $1,053.45!
How do I know I’ve won? For some people you may actually feel a tingling sensation…kinda like Spider-Man or Obi Wan Kenobi. For others the news will come to you via text. On Monday at Noon we will draw the winning card and shoot a text to the winner. Once the winner is confirmed, we will then ship the books right from the exhibit hall to your library.
· All business cards must include a valid cell phone number.
· Only one entry allowed per attendee.
· Entries must represent a library.
Good Luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!
