From the site: “On February 24, Discomfort by Evelyn Hampton will be released. On March 2, This Boring Apocalypse by Brandi Wells will be released. In the near future, these books have already been printed. They are in the world. They are riding subways, they are wandering streets. Find these ghosts from the future, capture an image of them, and send the image to us. You’ll be entered in a drawing to win a copy of each book. Four names will be drawn. You may enter once.

Images will be posted on this site as we get them.

The contest is open from February 1 – 20. We’ll announce the four randomly chosen winners here on February 23rd. Winners will also be notified by email.

Send a picture of the ghost from the future of Discomfort and/or This Boring Apocalypse by February 20 to: thisboringdiscomfort@gmail.com”
