thePlenty.net 10 years giweaway!

2 Sep, 2014 filed under: Site updates, Internet, contest

This September, the domain name thePlenty.net has been online for 10 years! The site is actually about 18 months older than that—in the beginning this place was just a small fanlisting with a news sidebar, hosted by a kind stranger. But beginning in the autumn of 2004 with the move to my own space and the domain name, I started to add more content. With the addition of the wiki in 2006 and the forums in 2008 the Plenty has grown quite a bit. This August we had an all time record number of visitors. To celebrate this first decade, I’m running a giveaway!


theplentynet 10 years giveaway prize

Prize: a set of US paperback copies of Dragon Keeper and Dragon Haven with the Jackie Morris covers, both signed by Robin Hobb.
Open: to all residents of planet Tellus with an email address.
Closes : September 13, 2014 23:00 EEST (convert to your place in time). NOW CLOSED.
Winner: will be chosen by a randomiser.
Rules: leave a comment on this entry with a valid email address. If you win, you need to be able to provide a physical address where I can send the books. If for some reason you can’t use the comment form, you can email your entry to memories (a) the plenty dot net—please put “theplentynet giveaway” or something similar as the subject.
Good luck!

Leading up to Loncon 3 (August 13-17) where she is Guest of Honour, Robin Hobb will be doing a UK book tour to promote Fool’s Assassin. Starting on the 9th of August, she’ll be reading and signing at Waterstones book stores in Reading, Birmingham, Sheffield, Liverpool and York as well as the Forbidden Planet in London. You can check the details at the official appearances page or the Waterstones events page. Please note that some events are ticketed and might already be sold out—it’s always best to check with the book store before you go!

Waterstones’ blog also recently featured a beautiful piece called “Charcters in Place” written by Robin about how things have changed (or not) since she first started writing about Fitz and the Fool. Highly recommended!

Random quote

Work, the old people say, keeps a man young. But perhaps that is something old folk say just because they know they must go on working. Be off with you, Fitz. And try not to discover any more crises for me before the day is out.

Chade in "the Golden Fool"
