First Legend of the Mantamaji Contest Winner

When Legend of the Mantamaji team headed off to San Diego’s Comic-Con we had a chance to interact with friends and fans. We also gained new fans on Facebook – over 200 actually. The support from the fans has been huge so we wanted to say thank you. We held a Facebook contest to celebrate our 300 likes and asked one simple question: “What does Elijah Alexander do for a living?”

He fights crime of course, but contest winner Shauna M Hyder had the correct answer – he’s also an Assistant District Attorney.

Congratulations Shauna, you are the winner of an autographed copy of The Legend of Mantamaji Book 1!
