Friday Freebie: Mega Scary-Good Joe Hill Gift Pack (N0S4A2, Horns, Heart-Shaped Box, 20th Century Ghosts)
Congratulations to Jeffrey Tretin, winner of last week's Friday Freebie: Bunker Hill: A City, a Siege, a Revolution by Nathaniel Philbrick.
This week's book giveaway is a special multi-book prize package. I'm thrilled to offer blog readers four books by Joe Hill: NOS4A2, Horns, Heart-Shaped Box, and 20th Century Ghosts. In other words, the entire* Joe Hill Library Collection. One lucky reader will win all four books (N0S4A and Horns are hardbacks, Heart-Shaped Box and 20th Century Ghosts are paperbacks). Author Michael Kortya has called Hill "quite simply the best horror writer of our generation," and I'm not about to disagree. If you want sleepless nights and restless days, crack open one of his novels or enter one of his short stories just before going beddy-bye and just see how far you get into Slumberland. I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but N0S4A2 is at the summit of my always-growing To-Be-Read pile (aka Mt. NeveRest), along with two other 2013 books by members of the King clan**. Read on for more information about the books you can win in this week's Friday Freebie contest:
If you'd like a chance at winning a copy of N0S4A2, Horns, Heart-Shaped Box, and 20th Century Ghosts, all you have to do is email your name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org
Put FRIDAY FREEBIE in the e-mail subject line. One entry per person, please. Despite its name, the Friday Freebie runs all week long and remains open to entries until midnight on May 30, at which time I'll draw the winning name. I'll announce the lucky reader on May 31. If you'd like to join the mailing list for the once-a-week newsletter, simply add the words "Sign me up for the newsletter" in the body of your email. Your email address and other personal information will never be sold or given to a third party (except in those instances where the publisher requires a mailing address for sending Friday Freebie winners copies of the book).
Want to double your odds of winning? Get an extra entry in the contest by posting a link to this webpage on your blog, your Facebook wall or by tweeting it on Twitter. Once you've done any of those things, send me an additional e-mail saying "I've shared" and I'll put your name in the hat twice.
*Minus the graphic-novel series Locke and Key (which I didn't have the foresight to order in time for this contest).
**Double Feature by brother Owen King and Joyland by father Stephen King.
