Take a Picture, or The Dog Days of Summer Dogsland Giveaway!

I will be giving away books and eBooks during the month of August. I'm doing this for a reason. It looks like the third Dogsland book is happening, and I want to make sure that as many people as possible pick up a copy of the first two and get themselves ready for #3, and I want to encourage people to pick up copies of DISINTEGRATION VISIONS, and LAST DRAGON, and WOMEN AND MONSTERS, and TALES FROM THE FATHOMLESS ABYSS, and DEATH MASK AND EULOGY. I want to encourage people to buy a book by me. So, starting on Wednesday, August 1, 2012, and through the month of August (*cough* which ends with my wedding on September 1st *cough*) I want to give one physical copy of a signed book away every Friday, and copious eBooks.

Here's what I need you to do. Buy a book by me, or check it out from a library. A physical, hard-copy book. Show me that you bought the book by showing me a picture of you holding that book on Facebook, Twitter, FlickR, or anywhere public. I desire a public display of the book, you see. I want you to hold it where other people can see you holding it, and other people can ask you what the heck that was all about, and if the book was any good. Post your picture to my Facebook Wall. Put it up on FlickR and link it to me in the comments here. Put the book up, with you holding it, so that others can see that you are holding it. My Facebook Wall is a great place to do that.  Twitter is a great place to do that @jmmcdermott. If you've already bought the book, you've already got a leg up in this little adventure, don't you? All you have left is to pose for a photograph!

In return, I offer a free eBook of either Dogsland Book, or if you already have those, any one of my eBook-only projects, including TALES FROM THE FATHOMLESS ABYSS, DEATH MASK AND EULOGY, or perhaps, later this month, a novella that's coming out soon...

This Friday, and every Friday until the end of the month, I will randomly select one of the photographs to receive an autographed copy of either NEVER KNEW ANOTHER or WHEN WE WERE EXECUTIONERS.

Go forth. Take a picture. Show me the picture. Etc.

The Dog Days of Summer are upon us. Dogsland is upon me, and maybe you.
