From the Basement
The cover of Chuck Palahniuk's Haunted glows in the dark. Ask me how I found this out. Well, since you insist. I got up in the middle of the night and as I was walking out of my very dark room, I happened to glance down at my TBR pile and I saw was this hideous glowing white face. I was a bit startled. By the way, under a green light bulb the face is even scarier. (Look it's a long story, about the green light bulb.) The image you see here (I hope) does not begin do justice to the cover when glowing. The cover is actually medium purple rather than the blue shown. This has to rank as one of the greatest book covers ever. A keeper even if it turns out I hate the book which I don't think I will.
Somehow, somewhere on the web that doesn't seem to by my website, young (I assume college or fresh out of) people have learned that I will send a free bookmark upon request. This has never been onerous. Until now. I had nearly fifty bookmark requests just today. I have run out of envelopes and stamps. Some of the requests are obvious college addresses, but I figure if even just a few decide maybe they'd like to read A Darker Crimson, that's to the good.
I have to write up a guest blog post and I pretty much have to do it tonight. I tried yesterday but everything I wrote was stupid. Ack! I have to do that now.
