Friday awesomeness: I received my complimentary copies of A Bottle of Storm Clouds from Visprint! Thank you Ms Nida and the rest of the Visprint family!
The book looks so beautiful – and I’m saying that not just because my name is on the front cover.
Each story is accompanied by a unique illustration.
This story, “Siren Song”, is original to the collection. Grab a copy to read this one. :)
My honorary first reader:
If all goes well, the book will hit the local bookstores this weekend.
The launch will be at the Visprint WIT (Writers in Talks) event in late August or September. Stay tuned for that. We plan to have at least 3 excerpt readings. I will be inviting writer and reader friends to read for me. (I hope they’ll be free on that day!!!)
How you can support the book:
1. Buy the book. Of course! :)
2. Share this link and other ABOSC info on your social networking sites (Twitter, Facebook, Plurk, Tumblr, etc.).
3. Review the book. Share your thoughts. Doesn’t matter if it’s positive or negative.
Oh, you’re still here? How sweet.
And because of that –
SURPRISE SUNGAZER BOOK GIVEAWAY!
I will be giving away one (1) signed copy of A Bottle of Storm Clouds each to two (2) lucky winners.
All you have to do is leave a comment here in answer to the question: What is your favorite science fiction, fantasy, or horror short story, and why? Leave a link to the story, if you wish. Doesn’t matter if local, foreign, or from outside of the Milky Way Galaxy.
Make me want to read that story. Or if I’ve read it, make me want to read it again.
No, you cannot tweet, email, or FB message me with your answer. Contest winners will be chosen only from the answers left in the Comments section of this blog post. Don’t forget to leave an email address. (Well, WordPress asks for it anyway.)
The contest will run from today, Monday, to Wednesday, August 1, at 12 noon. In case WP acts up, I will extend the contest duration.
Winners will be announced Wednesday afternoon or Thursday, Aug. 2.
Open to residents living in the Philippines only.
I will get the winners’ full names and full addresses, and the books will be shipped, hopefully immediately (it depends on how busy I am) via 2Go.
Disclaimer: The copies I will be sending are from my own set of advance copies from Visprint, but Visprint is not a sponsor of this contest. Neither is 2Go. I am the only one running this shindig. Impress me!
Once again: What is your favorite science fiction, fantasy, or horror short story, and why?
Let’s talk about stories!
