A Fortnight of Tolkien

  Welcome stragglers and adventurers from all corners of the vast expanse known as the internet. You couldn’t have arrived at a more opportune moment. For this New Year the word smiths of The Raven’s Quill are celebrating the commencement of our new, cozy little corner of the interweb with a giveaway that’s sure to entice dragons, elves, wizards, dwarves, and even the most respectable of hobbits. Intrigued? Read on virtual stragglers for all of the details.

      Starting January 1st, The Raven’s Quill will be hosting an event dubbed, "A Fortnight of Tolkien". During these fantastical two weeks, we’ll be honoring Tolkien’s legacy with posts and reviews dedicated to The Hobbit and most of its adaptations, including Peter Jackson’s recent film, An Unexpected Journey. For everyday of this extravaganza extraordinaire, you’ll have the chance to throw your names into our wizard hat for the opportunity to win one of two prizes. The event runs fifteen days in total, representing the number of traveler’s in Thorin’s Company. To clarify, this magical giveaway will end on the 15th of this month and the winners will be drawn the following day. For information on the prizes and for the Rafflecopter entry forum, trek over to the giveaway tab. The details and conditions of the giveaway will be spelt out clearly in bold, as we know it’s very hard to find someone fluent in moon runes in this day and age.
        So, what are you waiting for? The birds have returned to The Raven’s Quill, beckoning forth a new era. Below is a list of some of the reviews and posts that will be featured as a part of this event, and they will be updated and linked when completed. If at any time you find yourself lost, refer back to this post and you’ll be set right again. After all, in the words of Bilbo Baggins, "It’s dangerous business, going out of your door. You step into the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to."
