The cheesy feeling I always have while promoting my writing is mitigated in this instance by the fact that Dreadful Tales came up with this giveaway idea (and a great idea it is!). Not only have they given me my first review as a novelist this week, and not only have they named my follow-up novel House of Skin as one of 2012’s most eagerly anticipated releases, but they’ve also decided to give away two copies of The Sorrows on their website. Were my wife and I to have a fourth child, we’d name it Dreadful Janz. Unless it’s a boy, in which case we’d name him Rumpy, in honor of Richard Laymon‘s favorite word.
The details of the giveaway are simple (and painless). Just click on this link, comment in the thread, and bam, you’re eligible for the free ebook. Pretty awesome, huh?
And just that easily, you can own one of these babies…
And by the way, I’m reading a novel right now so scary that I’m afraid to go to bed.
No, I’m serious.
I’ll blog about this puppy as soon as I finish it, but all I’ll say right now is that it involves an evil so outlandish that in most authors’ hands, the story would have been a laugher.
But I’m not laughing as I read it. I’m cinching the covers tighter around my throat to protect myself from something awful. Something ancient. Something the characters simply refer to as the vine…
