There are two ways to win:
ONE
Preorder a copy of the book Life After Death anytime before September 18, and send your proof of purchase to blueriderpublicity@us.penguingroup.com with Life After Death in the subject line, and your question for Damien Echols in the body. You must also include your mailing address in the email. Only one per household. U.S. only.
What qualifies as proof of purchase? A scan or photo of a receipt works. Or, if you order from an online retailer, just forward your receipt from them. If you have safety concerns, feel free to delete any personal info from your receipt, though most retailers do not show any personal info on the receipt. No problem if the receipt is dated before September 5—it just needs to be before September 18th.

—Or—

TWO
Send a postcard with your question for Damien Echols to Blue Rider Press, 375 Hudson St, New York NY 10014
The winner will be announced on twitter @blueriderpress and on this webpage (first name, last initial, and city) by September 18th. Good luck!
