U Chic is happy to present our '"Chopsticks" book giveaway! We're giving away a copy of "Chopsticks" (written by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral) as well as a $25 iTunes gift card so you can download the app for the book.
The book is definitely a product of the 21st century — you learn about the story through pictures and IM conversations, as opposed to reading straight prose. It's a creative way to tell the modern-day love story. From what I've read so far, I love it!
If you'd like to win, all you need to do is tweet @UniversityChic telling us why you'd like to win with the #Chopsticks hashtag. We'll select our winner by the end of the week.
To find out more about the book, we've got a description and YouTube videos below. Happy tweeting! 🙂
About the book:
"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.
"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.
