It is my birthday. My second Quarantimes Nativity, as it were– technically, Im turning a FORBIDDEN NUMBER, and considered that stated number is also the variety of a rotten piece of shit president, and since I kinda feel like a year was taken from me anyway since of this dipshit pandemic, Im gon na go ahead and claim this birthday as:
Whats that, you state? But you do not have an indie bookstore near you? Ah, see, heres the good-news-gospel for you: lots of indie bookstores ship. You desire to purchase from my local, Doylestown Bookshop, they will mail it ideal to you. If you desire, I can even sign and individualize copies purchased through there, too. Numerous other bookstores, too, will ship. Powells, for example!
AGE 44, PART TWO.
* thunder rumbles *.
I think thats it.
Offered that it is the day I was shuttlecocked into the world, I figure we can do a little bit of a gift exchange. Way it works is this:.
My only concern now is, Ive discovered the USPS ending up being undependable thanks to Louis DeJoys knee-capping of said postal service, and so some stuff has simply … up and gotten lost. Not that its fantastic in the states, either, but some shit just disappears overseas, and it gets a lot more difficult to track, then. Apologies, however for now this will stay a US-only contest.
Final concern? Well, then yes, I expect that can count as 2 entries, which can provide you 2 chances to win, as they state. I mean, sure, I d like for you to pre-order 100 copies of each book, however thats a lot of effort on my part to put those names in a comically big top-hat.
If you have more questions, drop em in the comments below.
Why only indie book shops and not, state, Amazon? Well, regardless of your feelings about Amazon, one thing I do know is that our indie book shops are the lifeblood of the bookish community, so Im hoping to carefully advise purchases in that direction to support little company and to provide some love to booksellers in a filled time. My only problem now is, Ive discovered the USPS becoming undependable thanks to Louis DeJoys knee-capping of stated postal service, and so some stuff has simply … up and gotten lost. Well, then yes, I suppose that can count as 2 entries, which can give you two opportunities to win, as they state. I suggest, sure, I d enjoy for you to pre-order 100 copies of each book, however thats a lot of effort on my part to put those names in a comically big top-hat.
You have till Sunday, May 2nd, 11:59 PM EST to enter.
Second name will win the signed and annotated copy of Magic Skeleton.

Ah, yes, you over there.

You pre-order either The Book of Accidents (July 20th) or Dust & & Grim (October 5th) from either an indie bookstore or Bookshop.org. You send me the invoice for that purchase to terribleminds [at] gmail.com, with the subject header: BIRTHDAY EXCHANGE. And after that I enter you into a contest where Im distributing two copies of You Can Do Anything, Magic Skeleton. Both of those copies will be signed by myself and the artist, Natalie Metzger. And one of those 2 copies will be annotated by yours really throughout, in handwriting so bad youll think youre summoning some way of elder god simply by reading it. Perhaps Ill even doodle in it to reveal you why Natalie is the artist for the book and I most decidedly am not! Who knows what heresies it will contain!
Otherwise, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME PRE-ORDER MY BOOKS OR I DIE I indicate ha ha ha what.
Very first name will win the signed copy of Magic Skeleton.
On May 3rd, Ill do a random draw of two names.
Why just indie bookstores and not, say, Amazon? Well, regardless of your sensations about Amazon, one thing I do understand is that our indie book shops are the lifeblood of the bookish community, so Im hoping to gently prompt purchases in that instructions to support small company and to give some love to booksellers in a stuffed time. Ideally, your regional community.
