Chopsticks Giveaway!

Thanks to Penguin Books, I have one copy of Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral and a $10 iTunes gift card up for grabs! Chopsticks is a cool conceptual novel, filled with text, photographs, illustrations, and multimedia interactions. In fact, that's what the iTunes gift card is for: so you can access the Chopsticks app!

Check out some of the gorgeous visuals in the book:

About the book
CHOPSTICKS was born out of the desire to tell a story with multiple medias, without losing the fundamental truths which make reading fiction an emotional human experience.

The novel’s digital format will still allow you to encounter the lives of Frank and Glory, the characters that fill the pages, but the additional videos, songs and digital links will create a new novel experience.

CHOPSTICKS is a novel, an app, a website. It is a collage of original drawings, objects, text, sounds, and video. It is a love story. It is a mystery. Read it. View it. Experience it.
