During True Blood’s final season 7, the new character, Mr. Gus wears a necklace that was designed by Janet Cadsawan for Alma Katsu’s book series “The Taker”. In 2011, Kristin Bauer van Straten and Janet Cadaswan teamed up to make a necklace to sell for charity, read about it here.
Ms. Katsu has decided to give away one of the necklaces to a True Blood fan.
As you may be aware, Janet Cadsawan is the designer of jewelry for many literary properties and several of her pieces have appeared on True Blood. Janet designed a necklace for my books (The Taker Trilogy) and told me that it’s being worn by Will Yun Lee (Mr. Gus) this season. Since I’m a big True Blood fan, I decided to hold this contest to celebrate this.
A little background, in case you’re unfamiliar with The Taker books: they’re published by Simon & Schuster in the US and Random House UK, and have been published in about a dozen languages worldwide. They’ve been compared a lot to early Anne Rice and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, and Charlaine Harris has been kind enough to blurb the books.
The contest will open at 7 AM ET on August 14th and close at midnight ET on August 19th. To enter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is limited to US only.
