Get some REAL face time with an author.

I had to re-write the headline because it initially read "your favorite author". Now, for some of you, I may  very well fall into that category. Trust me when I say it is still very humbling to hear somebody say that, and I do not take it for granted. However, I wanted to make this a bit more general.

First, I want to say that I am not much of a Facebook person. I let Denise tell me when people pop in and then I read over her shoulder and respond accordingly. Honestly, if I spent all that time on sites like Facebook, I would never get the next book finished. I have seen and heard  of people losing hours before they knew what happened.

I am a "face-to-face" sort of guy. I like to hear voice inflection and read expressions so I have less chance of misinterpreting what somebody is saying. To that end, I am announcing my new contest. it runs from now until June 30th. It will have 6 winners, and to give it a test run, I am even announcing this "pre-contest" event. Are you curious?

Here it goes. Google-Plus has a "hangout" feature. It allows people to video conference. So, 6 lucky (or not depending on our viewpoint) individuals get to sit down with me for a half hour and have an open forum discussion about book 9 in the DEAD series, DEAD: Spring. Now, the event will take place on July 12th. The time will be determined by a consensus from the winners as to the best time for everybody so that nobody hopefully has to be up at 4 AM. Since I need to give this a test run, I am announcing this little early contest. Any who respond in the comments section between now and Wednesday, May 28, 2014 by midnight PST will be eligible for the drawing to participate in DEAD CHAT that will take place on June 21st. We will discuss all things DEAD related and I might be convinced to give a sneak peek reading from the new DEAD. You will be able to comment and criticize for a full half hour directly to my face...via video.

Interested? Comment below.
