After the success of the fanbook, we're going to put together a Christmas book for Andrew. Deadline to be decided, but the sooner you get things to us, the better!
We're looking for all sorts of things to put in it, including:
- Christmas cards
- pictures & drawings
- photos of you with Andrew
- photos/graphics of Andrew
- stickers/decorations for the book
You can include your name or leave your submission anonymous, and you're welcome to include a photo of yourself to go with it. You should include your email address for us to let you know how it all goes (and if there is a problem with your submission) but there should be no contact details on the submission itself.
Anything sent in to us on paper (letters, drawings etc) should be one-sided as the pages will be glued into the book, but you can use as many pages as you like.
If you're sending a Christmas card, it'll be glued in using the back.
The same rules apply as for messages posted on the forum:
"Andrew is a real person. I've noticed a lot of fansite forums come across as a bit creepy and that's definitely not what we want here. Think about what you're posting - could you say that to him in person? Would you be offended if someone said that about you? If someone said it to you, would you think it sounded a bit creepy? If you can answer "yes" to any of these questions, you might want to try and re-word your message."
Inappropriate submissions will be rejected, so do have a bit of common sense. And yes - marriage proposals and naked Sherlock/Jim fan art do count as inappropriate!
Gifts should be unwrapped - we need to check what we're giving him in case it is inappropriate or unsafe - but we'll wrap it once it's been checked.
If you're stuck for ideas or not sure how to put what you're thinking down as a message, feel free to email and ask for help!
You can submit all of these things by email to firstname.lastname@example.org

You can also post messages and pictures here (or PM them to me if you don't want everyone to see).
