Hang onto your top hats! HarperCollins Canada has set up a new character contest. Yes, you could have a character that you've dreamed up in your amazingly brilliant head appear in one of the books from The Hunchback Assignments series! Besides the world wide fame that will give you, you'll also win a free signed book. Signed by the author himself (or Wayne Gretzky, but only if he accidentally signs it). This is your assignment. Go to the Hunchback website and click on the button that takes you to the contest.
Alas this contest is only open to Canadians. But never fear, there may be an American and an Australian version very soon, too.
Until then, I salute thee!
