    FOREWORD WRITING CREDIT – Huh? What?! Why would anyone want this job? I have no idea, but if you want it, it’s yours. Write up to 1,000 words about the Arena Mode series, why you love it, and whatever else you want. Just keep the profanity, angry rants and conspiracy theories to a minimum. Your Foreword will go in the front of the book and be there forever. Like literally – forever. Your name will also appear in the credits of the book (page 1) all Ebook versions, and on Amazon.com when it goes live there. You’ll also receive everything in the ASGARDIAN WARRIOR LEGENDARY PACK + a 30 minute Skype chat + exclusive updates from me. FYI: I will have final say on the Foreword. I might ask you to edit it a little if something is too crazy...but who are we kidding? This is me we’re talking about. I probably won’t even spell check it.

Not just any character, mind you...a superhuman. (By the way, your character will be fighting with some other bad-ass superhumans, so chances are that he or she will die horribly.) What else is amazing about this package? You will have an illustration of yourself by one of the professional artists working on this project – and I’ll even incorporate some of your personality into the character, including physical characteristics, likes, dislikes, birthday, weird moles – it’ll all be there! OK, I might not do the mole thing, but the other stuff for sure.
