And speaking of scary books, here's part of an e-mail I received last night from author Christopher Well:
I am hoping you could do me a favor on Friday: Several blogs, websites and MySpace pages all over are joining together to post the first chapter of my new novel, DELIVER US FROM EVELYN. (See a sample entry at http://novelspoilers.blogspot.com)
I already have about 30 commitments at this point; it would be REALLY helpful if I could make it to 40 ... and I am hoping you can help me get there.
Promoting individual books (besides mine, of course) isn't what this blog is about. But Chris is a stand-up guy, and although he's far too much a gentleman to remind me, I owe him a favor. And it is a nifty promotional idea, don't you think? So I asked if I might share his request here.
If you're interested in participating, contact Chris through his blog or e-mail me for his address.
