Robot For A Day – The WinnersBy
Last month we held our favourite competition so far – Robot For A Day.
The prize was the best we could think of – we announced we would have 2 winners – a UK-based winner and an overseas winner.
Both winners will get their choice of a selection of Angry Robot Books (any 12) or a Nook ebook reader loaded with a selection of titles (any 12).
The UK-based winner will also get the chance to be a Robot For A Day.
We will pay travel expenses for the winner to travel from wherever they live in mainland UK to the Angry Robot offices in Nottingham at a mutually convenient time.
The winner gets to work as part of the Angry Robot team for the day, to include:
- • Meeting the editors and Publishing Director
- • Wrangling book data for a selection of titles to be uploaded to major online book retailers
- • To come up with some sample book cover blurbs for a title or two
- • Some proofreading
- • Pub lunch (an essential part of any publisher’s day!)
- • Take part in an acquisitions meeting, and help to choose some books to buy for publication (how cool is that!)
- • To get their thoughts on potential cover designs for the books in the acquisitions
Yeah, that’s pretty good.
Well, the winners have been chosen, and will be contacted over the next few days, and announced on this site once they’ve been contacted. So, if you entered the competition (and there were a lot of you!) keep an eye on your inbox and on this site, just in case.
If you didn’t win, thank you for entering. We’ll publish the results of the competition next week.
