we’re not unreasonable; I mean, no one’s gonna eat your eyes

My brain just shut off. I could feel it. One moment, I was fine, and then it was like a switch. My brain is off. And I have Jonathan Coultan’s “Re: Your Brains” stuck in my head, so its not all bad.

Apparently, my total lack of sleep is turning me into a zombie.

But I just wanted to ask a quick question before I watch Vampire Diaries and then go off to eat your brains. I mentioned earlier today that I planned on giving promotional items away in conjunction with the release of Flutter at the end of this month. 

And my question is: What kind of stuff would you like? My beloved roommate Eric suggested Fefe Dobson CD’s, but I’m putting that as a plan B right now.

Paperback copies of the books are the most obvious choice. But if I do that, should it be books 1-3? Or Just the 3rd one? Do you want them autographed? I mean, I don’t really feel like my autograph is a valuable commodity, but that’s mostly because its horrible. 

What about bookmarks? Collages? I do make really lame collages, and I could make one as a prize, if anybody would want it that wasn’t me. Um… what else? 

Eric also suggested what Perez Hilton did: Any person who bought his book could send it to me him and he would autograph and decorate their book and send it back.

I won’t even make that a prize. If you ever buy any of my books in paperback, send it to me, and I’ll autograph it and decorate it and write you a poem in silver sharpie. I mean, if you’d like that, I’ll do it. 

So anyway – what kind of stuff would like you to win in celebration of Flutter?

    You could do a book giveaway, but if the person has not read the first book you could give them the first one instead of the one that is coming out. Everyone loves to to a signed book. Bookmarks are always great or even some other type of swag. Some authors give out buttons or even change it up and make bookmarks that look like toe tags.
