So, go now and enter. And spread the word!

reviewage

In another post of shameless self promotion, I’m asking you to post reviews of Bitter Night (and my other books too, let’s not make them feel bad), on Amazon, B & N and wherever else you can. It would be incredibly wonderful.

On another note, if these words were real, what would they mean? Are they verbs? Nouns? Adjectives? Definitions please!

Bitter Night Release Day!

yep, that’s right. Today is the day that Bitter Night releases. You know what that means? That’s right. Shameless self promotion. And not only that, I’m asking you to go promote me. (yes, make me a general of your armies. Be my minions! Mwhahahahahahaha!)

Anyhow, here’s what I’m asking. Spread the word. Blog about the book. Twitter about it. Invite me to interview on your blog. Tell everyone you know. Tell the bookstores you frequent that this is the best book ever. Oh! And I’d love to see photos of the book in the wild! Send me pics and I’ll post them! That would be awesome. Tell strangers in the grocery line. Tell strangers in bookstores. Tell your family and friends. And then come back and tell me so I can praise you with much lavishness!
