Save Our Seeker Contest
An industry insider has told SaveOurSeeker.com that Legend of the Seeker Executive Producer Ken Biller, more than anyone else, is the one that we need to encourage to fight to bring back the series.
We've never written to Mr. Biller before and he needs to understand just how hard the fandom has worked to bring the show back and how much they still want it nearly two years later.
To make the February Journey Book Campaign more exciting, and to stress just how important Mr. Biller could be to the future of Legend of the Seeker, we are launching a contest with amazing prizes as an incentive for all fans to participate. The grand prize will be a hand crafted sterling silver Sword of Truth pendant graciously donated by Terry Goodkind in support of this contest. For a full list of prizes click here.
To enter the contest, you'll need to email a picture of your Journey Book Campaign letter, or postcard, or greeting card, and any other item you're sending. Please refer to the forum post by OfficialTG and the Noteworthy Campaigns section of this post for great ideas on getting noticed . Contest winners will be notified via email and will be required to submit their name and a valid shipping address in order to receive prizes. We'll ship the prizes via priority mail and do retain a receipt as proof of shipment. See Contest Rules for more details on how to enter and other important information.
