Earn a copy of "Yuri Monogatari 6" through "Project Engage!

May 10th, 2009

As you know, ALC Publishing recently launched Yuri Monogatari 6 and as we know there are a lot of you who would like a copy of the book but, for one reason or another, cannot get it. Maybe you’re in school and can’t afford it, or maybe you live somewhere where shipping from Amazon makes it outrageously expensive.

So, we’ve developed this new Project special for you!

Here’s how it works:

Project Engage” is very simple. Use any and all social media you *already use* to promote YM6 and EARN a copy of YM6 for your efforts!

– Mention Yuri Monogatari 6 in a relevant Forum, Mailing List, Blog post, Twitter about it, or talk about it on your Facebook, MySpace, LiveJournal page, or any other form of social media *that you already use* with a link to either the ALC Page on the Yuricon Shop or Amazon and get *5* points.

– Embed the Yuri Monogatari 6 video trailer (see below) on the any of the social media *you already use,* and get *10* points.

– When you have earned *50* points, email us links to these posts, your age and your address at anilesbocon01 at hotmail dot com with the subject line “Project Engage Links” and we’ll send you a copy of “YM6!”

It’s that simple.

Here’s the IMPORTANT GUIDELINES YOU MUST FOLLOW TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A BOOK:

1) You MUST be 18 or over. There is no exception to this rule. Include your age in your email the first time. Don’t make us chase after you for it.

2) You may not create dummy accounts/blogs or pages for this. If we check and you have no other posts on your blog, or no other posts on the Forum in question, your entry will not count AND you’ll make us look bad, like we’re spamming the world. So – please only use accounts on places that you already use regularly.

3) This project is meant to support and promote ALC and YM6. A link followed by a damnation of everything we are doing will not make you any friends. If you want to help us out, we’re delighted. If you want us to die a fiery death, don’t feel obliged to “help.” :-) Lying and cheating to get a book is also not the point. This is to reward folks who *want* to do something concrete to help support us.

4) All links *must* be verifiable. I’m willing to sign up for forums, or friend you, but if you stick them in a private area that no one but you can see, then that’s kind of not the point. -_-;;

5) Yes, previous posts, links and embeds count. If you already mentioned YM6 somewhere before today, that is absolutely, positively acceptable. Just collect *50* points worth and you’ve earned yourself a copy of YM6!

6) If you are not 18+, please feel free to share links and embeds, but at this time we cannot send you a book. However, your support is still very much appreciated and I want to thank you, so email those links and I’ll send you an “I Love Yuri” postcard to show our thanks!

Project Engage is open to anyone 18 or over, they do not need to be a member of the Yuricon ML or a reader of Okazu. So feel free to get your friends involved. A few of you banding together *can* get a book to share – the point is to get the word out.
:-)

If you have questions, please ask them here in the comments, so everyone can see the answer. Thanks and here’s to the success of Project Engage!

    Wow great promotion!! Maybe you could make banners for people use in profiles or signs.

  2. If someone with graphic skills is willing to provide a YM6 banner, I’d certainly offer it for download. :-)

  3. Isabella says:

    Oh, I have more questions:

    If I email you with the links, but you judge that´s not enough to gain 50 points you will reply so we can try again =D?

    Is there a limit of time?

    I have no graphic skills but I will try to persuade a friend of mine to do it =D

  4. @Isabella – If you can do simple arithmetic, the 50 points things should be easy enough to figure. but of course, if there is a problem, I would let you know. :-)

  5. Masamonkey says:

    *ponder* This is a good idea for promotion, but it seems a bit conflicted for someone to promote a book they haven’t read yet. I don’t know how else it could be better though. *weep*

  6. @Masamonkey – Once again, this for people who *want* to promote ALC Publishing. It is not a requirement for anyone, much less someone who has never read one of our books or has no interest in it.

    It’s not a contest – it’s a way of rewarding folks who are interested in promoting something they love.

  7. shaya says:

    So if you mention the YM6 and embed the video in the same place, will you earn 15?

  8. @shaya – No. The point is to spread the word, so one location equals one mention.

  9. BruceMcF says:

    But, given that the purpose is to spread the word, if its a context where you can embed both links and video, be sure to include the links as well as the video, since they flash by pretty quick, are near the end, and are not showing in the final frame.

    Gokigenyou61 uploaded the clip at VEOH, so if anyone has a VEOH group with an active membership and active video list, you could add his upload of the clip to your video list … since YouTube clips cannot be added to VEOH group video lists.

    Just a quick note, the TinyURL link you have for the Yuricon store is broken– the URL is written as “tinurl.com” instead of “tinYurl.com”

    So anyone trying to copy/paste that may have difficulties.

    Anyway, Viva la Yuri!

  11. @Bruce McF – Thank for that tip.

    @Anonynous – Thanks for the catch. Fixed.

  12. Roxanne says:

    Nice promotion! You have a great talent! It’s just that I am not agreeing the presence of homosexuality in the video. Is it for adults only?

  13. @Roxanne – If you object to homosexuality, then you object to the book being promoted, this blog, everything Yuricon & ALC does – everything here is related to lesbian themes in animation and comics. I appreciate your kind words on the promotion but, clearly, our work isn’t for you.
