I am the first one to make
half-meant jokes about George R.R. Martin sitting down to focus on writing “A Song of Ice and Fire” and stop piddling, promoting other authors’ books, writing prefaces, and all the other stuff that he does.
This time, though, I think I shall shut up and even share his latest endeavor NOT directly related to getting the fantasy books done.
George R.R. Martin is running a campaign for a good cause. Titled “Win A Wolf Sanctuary Tour and Helicopter Ride with George R.R. Martin”, the crowdfunding campaign will help the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and the Food Depot – probably the closest you’ll get to direwolves.
Prizes range from an exclusive t-shirt to a signed map of Westeros to a helicopter ride with the King of Grisly Deaths himself.
The ultimate prize, though, is worth a whopping $20,000: yourself as a character in the novel!!!
But wait, there is more!
Not only will you be part of the novel, but you’ll also meet a grisly death as only GRRM can deliver. So, what say you? Give up $20,000 for this chance?
If you don’t have that kind of money, you can still help. Watch the video below and donate to the campaign here.
