THE NAME OF THE STAR READ ALONG DAY PARTY THING

Sundays are boring, right? NOT ANYMORE, CHUMPS. THIS SUNDAY IS A PARTY. It’s THE NAME OF THE STAR READ ALONG PARTY THING DAY!

What?

I’ll explain.

The Madness Underneath comes out on TUESDAY, the 26th. So this SUNDAY, the 24th, I’m having an ALL DAY EVENT where you can READ the first book (for the first time, or as a refresher) to prepare for the SECOND.

How does this work? SIMPLE.

1. OBTAIN BOOK.

This is easy. The Name of the Star is available anywhere. Bookstores, libraries, the moon … maybe not the moon, but bookstores and libraries.

AND, on SUNDAY, there is a ONE DAY SPECIAL. You will be able to get the ebook in ANY FORMAT for $2.99. You can get it at:

Amazon

B&N (for Nook)

Kobo

iBookstore

Or borrow it. Or whatever. Just get the book.

2. READ THE BOOK.

So then you read it. Why not spend your Sunday reading a book? 

3. HANG OUT WITH ME AND OTHER READERS.

Here’s where it gets good. How often do you get to read a book and know the author is just hanging around, waiting to answer your questions? NOT OFTEN. I’m devoting Sunday to being there WITH YOU as you read.

And this is how we can DISCUSS…

4. TWITTER

I’ll be online all day. Use the hashtag #NOSreadalong. Tweet me questions, comments, or just tell me what page you’re on. I WILL BE THERE. (With short breaks. Like for food.)

5. TUMBLR

I’ll be HERE too! And we are having a contest here on Tumblr! Send photos of yourself READING THE BOOK and you might win a PRIZE. Use the hashtag #NOSreadalong, just like on Twitter. I’m looking for UNUSUAL PHOTOS. Maybe you are reading with a ghost? You can also ask questions here!

6. PRIZES!

Oh yes. There are prizes. There are 15 copies of Madness Underneath ready to go. I’ll be giving them out AS I FEEL LIKE IT. Join in. Use the hashtag. Either here on Tumblr or on Twitter. Tell me something interesting, or post a photo, or whatever, YOU COULD WIN. SO GET IN TOUCH. It’s THAT SIMPLE. #NOSreadalong

7. GOOGLE HANGOUT PARTY!

The day ends at 5pm EST with a GOOGLE HANGOUT PARTY in which I will talk about THINGS. And I’ll READ from Madness Underneath. And maybe do a dance. Maybe I’ll invite people to Google with me? YOU NEVER KNOW WITH ME. I AM FULL OF SURPRISES, LIKE A CAN OF POP UP SNAKES.

I’ll post the link to the hangout on SUNDAY.

8. THEN YOU WILL BE READY FOR THE MADNESS UNDERNEATH ON TUESDAY.

Boom. You’re ready for the sequel. Look at that.

You STILL HAVE TIME, by the way, to PRE-ORDER and get the SEVEN STICKER GIFT PACK and the SIGNED BOOKPLATE.

I should also point out that those pre-orders are starting to SHIP. (Not that kind of ship.) (No, wait. Yes, that kind of ship.) (Kind of.) What I’m saying is that you could have the book VERY SOON by pre-ordering.
