More chat than splat … and a contest


I just wanted to give a big public “Thank you!” to Nick Cook at the Message Board of the Damned for having me as the guest in last night’s chat session. If you missed it, here’s a transcript.

The chat was a lot of fun and people asked some good questions. I was worried it would be just me and Nick in there, but he tells me that attendance for the chat was second only to Don D’Auria’s (he’s the editor of Leisure Books’ horror line, for the two of you who didn’t know that). I gotta admit I’m shocked by that. Thank you to everyone who turned out!

Do you want a free book?

Yesterday I picked four winners from my Yahoo group to win books in what’s supposed to be a monthly drawing that kind of fell behind. Rather than accept the prize, one guy just unsubscribed from the group this morning. I could pick someone else, but instead I think I’ll pick a winner here.

Just respond to this post and tell me briefly why you want a signed copy of either Murdered by Human Wolves or Call to the Hunt. Keep it short and keep it clean. I’ll let one of my older kids choose the winner. You have to make your post before 6 p.m. CST tomorrow, Dec. 14.

Good luck! Oh, and make sure I have some way of contacting you to get a mailing address.

  1. Steve, sorry all I could do was pop in and out of the chat. WIsh I could’ve stayed longer and asked someawkward questions. ;o)
    I’m embarassed to admit, I didn’t know you had a yahoo group! I’ll be signing up for that one ASAP!

  2. I’d love a signed copy of one of your books. I’m a big fan of the horror genre, and I love werewolves in general (as you might have guessed from my username). We’re cutting back on Christmas gifts this year after the $15,000 emergency appendectomy that I had to get on my last vacation, so a signed copy of a horror book that I can really sink my teeth into would be a great pick-me-up!

  3. Dude, I got home and tried getting into the chat last night, but I didn’t have Java loaded onto my home computer.
    So I started the download.
    After about an hour and a half on my slow dial-up connection, I finally got the applet to load…
    And everyone had gone home for the evening.
    Next time, I’ll be there.
    And I, like Ron, didn’t know about the Yahoo Group. Gotta fix that problem, pronto!
    And I’d love a signed copy of Murdered…. Did you say one of your children will be the judge? Well… I think that’s a wonderful idea! From what I read, you’ve got the best children in the world! I wish I had children like yours! Especially your older kids… I have never seen more perfect children in all the world! Yep… They’re the best! I think they should get everything they want for Christmas!

    • Oh man! Lemme put on the hip waders for this!
      Remember kids, just because he says it doesn’t mean it’ll happen. 😉

  4. Well, I tried. For over an hour I tried. Don’t ask me what the problem was, but, no matter what I did I could not log onto the chat. The list of (all) my attempts is too long to go into here. Finally, out of frustration I placed an e-mail on the help page. Of course that didn’t help with the immediate problem.
    You can’t begin to imagine how disappointed I was.
    All I can say is, I’m really sorry I missed you.

  5. Curses
    A free signed copy of Call to the Hunt.
    Why do I want it? Why do I deserve it?
    I was going to play the appendectomy card but Wolflady beat me to it.
    Ok – its a lie and I was going to say I got it done cut rate in Mexico and
    it got mucho infecto but don’t have the gaul.
    How about this will leave more money for beer?
    Wait, your daughter is judging this and you’ve taught her
    that drinking is evil. Man…
    Count me out.
