Half-Blood Teaser Trailer plus Epic Contest

So excited to release the first teaser trailer for Half-Blood! There will be a few more coming out over the next couple of months. Huge thanks for SPH for putting this together. If left in my hands, it would be crudely drawn stick figures and nonsensical scenes mashed together.

Without further adieu, here is the 1st teaser trailer for Half-Blood.

So what do you think of the 1st teaser trailer?

Here is the youtube link:

Since we are giving away quite a bit of stuff, the rules aren’t going to be as simple as the contests before. Must I’m not doing any of the crazy points things or whatever. I’d get myself confused with that.

Rules for the Epic Contest:
  1. You must be a follower of my blog
  2. You must follow me on twitter
  3. You must comment on the youtube page
  4.  You must retweet this contest via Twitter or facebook. If you have a blog, you must post the video on your blog as your post with a link back to the contest. (You’re not required to keep it up permanently.)   If no blog, then what the hell? No. Just kidding. Twitter and facebook will work.
  5. 1.       Final step. I swear. You must leave a comment on this post with the link to your blog, tweet and/or facebook. 

    The contest is open from Monday March 14th to Monday March 31th.  The contest is international. 

    Now what can you win for all this freaking work? It’s worth it. I SWEAR. Or zombies shall eat my brains.
