You Know What You Need? Free Books.

I don’t know about you people, but last week kicked my ass.

I was down at Comic-Con on the zombie apocalypse panel with a slew of fantastic writers. John Hornor Jacobs, Mira Grant/Seanan McGuire, Diana Rowland, Dana Fredsti, Max Brooks, Jeyn Roberts, Susan Dennard, and Michael Spradlin.

And holy fuck were there a lot of people.






That’s the room from one end to the other as folks were coming in. By the time we were good to go it was standing room only.

So, yeah, I’m a little beat. And I am so not ready to deal with a Monday.

I’m willing to bet you aren’t either.

So, to hopefully make somebody’s Monday a little brighter, I’ve got two copies of my novel CITY OF THE LOST to give away.

Here’s how it’s going to work. The giveaway is going to run until this Friday, July 20th. Leave a comment here, ping me on Twitter, or shout at me on the street. Whatever works for you.

Then, next Saturday, I’ll randomly grab names from a hat, announce the winners and send them out.

They’ll be signed and everything.

This is only open to North America since I’m broke and can’t afford the postage.

Sorry all you people in Belgium. Know that I love you, anyway.

  • Free books are a glorious thing – best way to build up good karma ever.

  • A free book would definitely go a long way in making up for missing what was obviously one more great panel at SDCC!


    July 19, 2012

  • You know what they say, “If it’s free, then I am quite interested in acquiring it for entertainment purposes.”
