Tyr Kiernan, and a unique competition

Tyr Kiernan had an idea, to write a book through Facebook and Twitter posts. His goal – to create a story where the reader had the opportunity to read it as it was written. To achieve this he composed each story segment within hours of posting and, after 18 months and posting each weekday the story has come to an end.

The story synopsis is: “Riddled with torments from his past, Iames walks
through the night in designed invisibility. He's been able to survive for centuries under the safety of an inconspicuous and solitary lifestyle. But just as the anguish and the monotony begin to overwhelm, his past resurfaces in a whirlwind of events and emotions.

“Bitter-sweet reunions lead him to the brink of death at the hands of a bloodthirsty Lycanthropic horde. And yet a greater evil stalks them all with an insatiable desire to kill any being they deem *unnatural*.

“Follow Iames in this intense night of violence and discovery, as he fights for peace within and without. Will he be forced to relive past failures or can he help his fellow Vampires find a path to survival?”

He is now running a competition to decide the official title of the story. The winner will receive permanent credit for title creation and will be forever attached to the story. They will also receive another prize, details at the official rules page.

The story can be found here, the contest can be entered here and the facebook fan-page is here.
