In a few days, my new collection Will the Sun Ever Come Out Again? will be available. This one’s a big deal for me. Firstly, because it’s a collection of four novellas, which is something I’ve wanted ever since seeing the cover of Stephen King’s Different Seasons back in the 80′s. Secondly, it features an introduction by Laird Barron, which still just barely makes sense to me. Laird’s a damn hero of mine, and it’s an amazing honor to have him write an intro for this collection. Finally, this is the first time I’ve worked with J. David Osborne and Broken River Books, something I’m hoping to do again sooner rather than later.
Because of all of this, I’ve decided to celebrate the release of Will the Sun Ever Come Out Again? with a contest. So listen up. Hopefully, you’ll think this is as cool an idea as I do….
THE WILL THE SUN EVER COME OUT AGAIN? RELEASE AND REVIEW CONTEST
WHAT IS IT?
At its most basic, the contest is a chance for you to win free shit by doing nothing more than offering an honest review of my new book, Will the Sun Ever Come Out Again?
Okay, check this out. Will the Sun Ever Come Out Again? will be available this week. Once it’s available, pick up a copy and give it a read. Leave an honest review (seriously, just be honest…I’m not fishing for five stars, here) at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Goodreads, and then mail a link to said review to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your review enters you in the contest. On June 1st, I’ll draw three winners from the entries via super awesome, name-from-a-hat technology.
Prior to this, I will need to buy a hat.
DO I GET ONE ENTRY FOR EACH SITE?
Sure, why not? If you review on each site, you get an entry for each site. No cutting and pasting, though!
CAN I WIN MORE THAN ONCE?
No. Don’t be greedy.
WHAT IF I REVIEW BOOKS PROFESSIONALLY?
Then I thank you for your service. But I’m afraid I’m only counting reviews from the three sites mentioned above.
WHAT IF MY REVIEW IS JUST A LINK TO MY BLOG OR WEBSITE, WHERE I’VE REVIEWED THE BOOK?
Get out of my spotlight. I mean, thanks for reviewing the book, but we’re trying to promote me, here, not you.
OKAY, FINE. SO, WHAT CAN I WIN?
Ah! Now, we’re talking (also, I realize this is just me typing and that we’re not really talking). As I said above, there will be three random winners. Those winners will, well, win…
Book package containing the limited, hardcover edition of my novel Pale Horses, signed and personalized; a copy limited, hardcover anthology Is There a Demon In You?, featuring novels by myself, Brian Keene, Wrath James White, and Mary SanGiovanni; and a personalized paperback of my novel Down.
Book package containing a signed, personalized limited hardcover of my novel Lights Out and a signed, personalized paperback of my novel The Slab City Event.
Book Package containing a signed, personalized limited hardcover of my novella Like Thunder and a signed, personalized paperback of Pale Horses.
ANY SPECIAL ADDENDUMS?
Star ratings without reviews don’t count. Reviews that make it shockingly obvious you haven’t read the book don’t count.
All right. You have until June 1st. Go!
So, there you have it.
