Become part of a unique multimedia promotional experience!

“I wanted to tell you about a pretty cool fiction-meets-reality promotion hosted by my buddy, author J.C. Hutchins. His debut novel, Personal Effects: Dark Art is coming out in June, and he’s launched a creative grassroots campaign to spread the word.

Check out the promotion at http://JCHutchins.net/thebrink . You can become a “patient” in the mental institution seen in the book! Submit some artwork and a patient profile, and your work will be displayed on the hospital’s official website, http://BrinkvalePsychiatric.com . You’ll even receive printable “admittance papers” from the hospital! It’s fun and free. Learn more at http://JCHutchins.net/thebrink .”

Feel like helping out further? Tell your friends and family, or print out the attached picture and put it up anywhere you think it might be seen.

Support An Indie Author: This Could Be You In A Few Years

August 26, 2008

I may a have no money, but I have a blog, dammit!

Support Mur Lafferty, a new, up-and-coming author who’s kick-arse first novel, Playing for Keeps, is being published today. Buy a copy today from Amazon.com to help the novel rise up the chart and gain publicity for the genre, for the author and for new media fiction in general. Not sure what you’re getting into? Listen to the novel as a free PodioBook, or read the free PDF.

So, yeah. Go hog-wild. Support new media fiction, podcast authors, up-and-comers and the SF/F genres in literature.

Okay-dokey, want some more incentive? Buy Playing for Keeps now, and you can knock Stephanie Meyer and all those bloody Twilight books off the top of the charts. Who doesn’t want to see that?

Pretend To Be A Time Traveller Day – 2008?

August 22, 2008

I was recently reminded about an event that went on last year: Pretend To Be A Time Traveller Day. My enthusiasm for such an event was quickly overshadowed by my horror at learning that there’s no internet buzz about repeating the event again in 2008.

To this, I say nay! One a year, people should have the right to pretend they’re from another point in time! I propose that anyone reading starts spreading word about doing the event again in 2008.

September 8th. Pretend To Be A Time Traveller Day.

See you there. Or did I already? *

A link to one of last year’s articles on the event, giving you more info on what to do on the day:
