Subtle bribery

I’m still in full tour mode (next stop Florida!) so to make it up to you for being MIA I’m giving out a signed copy of the UK version of my book and a signed copy of the audiobook (which includes an extra chapter, me singing the titles, and a blooper reel).  All you have to do is leave a comment saying whether you want the paper version or the audio version and I’ll randomly select some winners.

The UK edition is a tad more whimsical on the outside. Same guts though.

In other tour news, looks like I’ll be adding a few more cities to the tour so I’ll keep you posted on that.

I’m doing in-store Skype events if you happen to be in Cincinatti’s JOSEPH-BETH BOOKSELLERS May 9th or Lansing, Michigan’s SCHULER BOOKS & MUSIC on May 10th.  (They’ll have signed bookplates on-hand.)  Also, I’m signing books in person in Florida this Friday, and in Gaithersburg, MD on the 19th.  I’ll add some more dates soon, and then I’ll turn into a hermit for the rest of my life, so if you want a signed copy of my book you better strike now before I go into seclusion forever.

A huge thanks to each and everyone one of you for supporting me on this terrible and wonderful roller coaster.  I know there have been book shortages around, but the good news is that the books out right now are all first editions so if you can find one you’ve got a collectors item.  One that will probably really be worth something several decades after we’re all dead.

PS.  If you want to buy the UK version it comes out on May 10th and you can get it at Amazon UK, Waterstones, and Independent UK bookstores.

UPDATED:  Winners ~ Daryk Masterson and Rob R.  Thanks so much, everyone!

    Hey, no fair writing sob stories to try to win it! Okay then, I’m taking the low road and throwing my sob story in the pile w/ the others. Lost my wife then my mom several years ago. Then I lost 75% of everything when a tree fell on my house in ’07. Then, Lost everything last year in Joplin Tornado. Since then, unemployed w/ PTSD. Yesterday, I lost a filling (no insur or Medicaid or anything) and found out that the homeless boy I took in infested my home with bed bugs so the exterminator made me toss some of my books, including yours! (These deets can be verified by Vevice.) (In yo face, Other Sob Stories! In Yo Face!) I hope you won’t give them out based on sob stories, though. I hope it’s random.

  872. Paper please….and thank you, if I win.

    I do so wish you were coming to Minnesota…then I would play hooky from work to go see you. That said, I suspect you are drawing huge crowds wherever you go.

    BTW, I was thinking that you’re like our version of Erma Bombeck who said outrageous things to our mothers in her column, and made each one think she was not alone in her crazies. Mores that pity that Ms. Bombeck is not alive to see you, her literary progeny, take wing and soar!

    I’m just thinkin’………………………..

    I know that you dont know me, but i still wanted to say thank you for this blog. I came across your blog several months ago through a friends posts. You have helped me so many times (yes, I sound corny, but I’m still gonna say it). Thank you for the helpful honesty and for the laughs that help me to feel less flawed. I always leave your writings with a needed laugh. Thank you thank you!!

    Audio please. I need to hear the chapter titles being sung; my life won’t be complete until that happens.

  885. I would have to say audio – I have a really crappy commute that usually involves sitting in traffic watching people read novels the size of law books (I kid you not. Almost walked up and tapped on the window, “I realize that we’re practically stopped, but you are operating a moving vehicle and not at the library!”). The audio copy of the book would make me laugh so hard the other commuters would wonder what I’m on.

    And while we’re at it, I’m still trying to figure out the thinking behind the UK version’s cover font. What are the curly things? Curly hair? Tree roots? Entrails from a taxidermy experiment gone wrong? I’m so lost…

  888. I really want a paper version.

    I have it on hold from my library, but theres a fuckton of a waiting list and even though I’m the head librarian of my branch I can’t bump myself up the list. Well… I can, but that would be using my sexy librarian powers for evil, you know?
    Paper, please…. pleeeeeaasseee.
