Darren Shan Wants Your Blood - Ocean of Blood Promo Game/Competition
edit: It seems there have been a few technical problems with this feature and so it has been taken offline for a couple of days.
To celebrate the release of the second book in the Saga of Larten Crepsley series, Ocean of Blood, HarperCollins Children's Books have teamed up with Firebelly, a creative agency specialising in the entertainment industry, to help teen horror author Darren Shan collect 1 MILLION virtual drops of blood from his dedicated followers.
Darren is thirsty for your blood, and here’s how he’s going to get it:
Simply donate a drop of blood to the virtual ocean with a click of your mouse and be in with a chance to win one of 1,000 prizes instantly. These vary from free wallpapers, to signed books, iTunes vouchers and iPod Nanos. If users are unsuccessful first time round, they have the chance to donate as many drops as they like in order to win an instant prize, so keep bleeding to win! Once the 1 MILLION drops have been donated and the ocean is full, one user will win the top prize of an iPad 2 with all of Darren’s teen books pre-loaded and a personalised Saga of Larten Crespley book cover framed and signed by Darren.
What are you waiting for? It won’t hurt...much!
