I'm doing a weird little contest thing over on my livejournal (don't judge me, man!) and I figure I might as well extend it here. To quote the relevant text:
However, if you want something a little different, here's the deal: come up with a cool way to promote my book and put it into practice. Review it for your local newspaper or get the book section of said paper to review it. Get your bookstore to order it. Buy it and pass it out as Christmas presents. Then tell me what you did, and the most interesting or original way that doesn't make the entire world want to hunt me down with pitchforks will receive a signed copy of the uncorrected proof of the book, complete with a handwritten essay in the back pages of the book. Consider it a collector's item. So yeah, basically I'm trying to harness your creativity to work for me. I read a lot of comics, and I'm pretty sure this is what Doctor Doom would do. Well, that and use robots and death rays, but I'm on a budget.
Please, please don't do anything illegal or dangerous, because I'm poor and cannot be held liable for either. Otherwise, have fun if you choose to participate. If not, well, you should still have fun, but I'd bet it will be less fun. Because I'm a fun guy, like anamita musacaria but less poisonous.
