The first volume of The Rising of the Shield Hero will be released by One Peace Books on September 15th, but would you like to get your hands on the light novel sooner? Now is your chance! The winner of this contest will receive a free review copy of the book. The contest will take the form of a drawing (chosen by random number generator), and to enter you need only agree to review the book once you finish reading it. Your review will then be posted here at englishlightnovels.com! How cool is that?
To enter, simply leave a comment below and include your email address. If you are the winner you will be notified by email, at which point you can reply with the physical address to mail the book to. And then you will get to read it, and share your thoughts on it! (I can collaborate via email to help with editing and formatting your review, so no worries there.)
The contest deadline will be 23:59 on Saturday, August 15th. Be sure to enter by then if you’re interested in this light novel!
Synopsis: Naofumi Iwatani, an uncharismatic Otaku who spends his days on games and manga, suddenly finds himself summoned to a parallel universe! He discovers he is one of four heroes equipped with legendary weapons and tasked with saving the world from its prophesied destruction. As the Shield Hero, the weakest of the heroes, all is not as it seems. Naofumi is soon alone, penniless, and betrayed. With no one to turn to, and nowhere to run, he is left with only his shield. Now, Naofumi must rise to become the legendary Shield Hero and save the world!
UPDATE: And the contest is finished! The winner of the drawing is Joseph, who will receive volume 1 of The Rising of the Shield Hero.
If the opportunity arises, I will be sure to have more contests for light novels in the future! Thanks to everyone who participated in this one–and for those interested in Shield Hero be sure to watch out for the first book’s release next month!
