Deathday Letter ARC Giveaway!
Okay, well you cat people probably know where this is going. You dog people may be going, "So what?" Well my first mistake was leaving the ARC out on my kitchen table. Now, I did a good job of cleaning up and making sure that anything that could potentially fall down or be knocked over, was moved. Except for my poor, poor ARC. One day, not long after the cats claimed my home as their own, I came home from work to find a large pile of cat vomit hanging off the front of my book. So I said to the cat, "Tell me what you really think of the book."
My roommate cleaned it off and it now only looks slightly water damaged. But I was left with the dilemma: What do I do with it now? Would anyone actually want a copy of The Deathday Letter that had been kitty-puked on? Well we're about to find out.
Now begins the official Deathday Letter ARC Giveaway! Entering is easy. Leave a comment telling me about something special that YOUR pet destroyed, and post a picture to go along with it. Cat, dog, goldfish, doesn't matter. Don't have a pet? No problem! Tell me something your roommate destroyed. Most roommates are dirtier than pets anyway. No roomates OR pets? Make something up. I'm a fiction writer, I'll appreciate the effort :) If you have trouble putting a picture in the comments, link to one. If you can't do that, then tell me all about your adorable Poopsie. ***EDITED TO ADD*** If you're shy and don't want to leave a story, you're more than welcome to just leave a comment with your name. It's not as much fun, but I totally understand :)
I'll draw the winner via random drawing on May 1st (my birthday!). That's all there is to it. So spread the word! There will also be awards for the cutest pet (to be decided by vote) and the funniest story (to be decided by whether I shoot coffee out of my nose). The only stipulation is to keep it clean-ish.
Spread the word, the contest begins NOW!
By the way, that's not the cat in question, it's my dog, Maxx, looking particularly regal. Also, the ARC is pretty clean, so no worries about lingering vomit.
This is the cat that did the vomiting and a picture of the ARC:
