Special New Year's contest!

Yes, you too can own a personally autographed copy of the chilling new novel, "The Missionary and the Brute"! Here's how:

Book signing for my Disney book.
To qualify, there are two easy steps:
  • First - join this site.
  • Then - reply to this thread with a comment and your email address. (Comments are moderated so if your comment does not immediately appear - no worries - it will be added within 24 hours. One comment per entrant please.) 
One lucky winner chosen at random will receive a copy of "The Missionary and the Brute" personally autographed by author John Kenworthy - that's ME!

You know, not everyone in this life knows precisely what they are worth, but I do. Exactly $3.28. Yup. That's right. $THREE DOLLARS and TWENTY-EIGHT CENTS! Woohoo!

How do I know this?

Quite simply that's the average increase in value for autographed copies of my first two books sold on ebay compared to those sold without a signature. $3.28. That means that this prize winning book will have an actual perceived value of $14.95 + $3.28ish...

Not bad.

This contest will be open from now until January 6th. (Over 200 people have registered to win copies of my book on GoodReads. I assume your odds will be much better here!)

I do ask that you please be over 18 years old as this novel has adult elements of sensuality and violence.
After registering - Why don't you stop by other pages on the blog to read about the 'Making of "The Missionary and the Brute"'. I think you'll enjoy.

Good luck!

On GoodReads, there is a giveaway with 238 book-people with great taste clamoring for a chance to win one of five UN-signed books. That is a 2.1% chance of winning.

Here by simply leaving a comment "Hey, dude! Your book sounds scary AND philosophical, can I have one?" and an email address which I will delete (only used for notification purposes), you have a - oh, as of right now - 100% chance at a signed copy!

Good luck!

Hey I just read the description on amazon, and it sounds like my kind of book! I'll definitely pick one up from you. Since I live close, can I buy one right from you? or would I need to buy one online?
