Grand Prize is a reproduction of a Titanic Third Class Coffee Mug plus a pea-sized piece of coal salvaged from the actual wreck more than two miles below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean (Certificate of Authenticity included for the coal), an autographed copy of my award winning novel science fiction novel WRECK OF THE NEBULA DREAM (which is loosely based on the Titanic) and a $10 Amazon gift card. The coal is presented with a miniature reproduction of the New York Times front page reporting the catastrophe. (See photos)
(I should note that the coal is the only item the RMS Titanic, Inc. company is allowed to salvage from the site of the shipwreck and sell to the general public. And, very important, this is a tiny piece of coal. The closeup photo below is much larger than the actual nugget, which is mounted at the bottom of the miniature NYT reproduction.)
I’ll also will award one $10 Amazon gift card each to the 2nd and 3rd place winners.
Please leave a comment below to be entered for the drawing, all winners randomly selected. Giveaway is open April 8th through the 14th. I’ll announce the winners on April 15th.
Comments can relate to Titanic, movie/TV shows/books about the disaster…some other disaster at sea…a disaster you’ve experienced…anything relating to the theme in some way!
The mug does have a normal style handle on the opposite side from the White Star insignia but it’s completely boring to photograph…
