thank you card for 104 (and ARC winners!)


To everyone who entered the ARC giveaway contest: 

First, I wanted to send you each an ARC.

Then, I wanted to write you each an illustrated three AM note.

Then, because it would take me more than a hundred three AM's to do that, I made one big three AM note for all of you and here it is (YES, your name is on there if you entered the ARC contest!):


It really made my week to read all the comments, and consider taking bribes of Trappist underwear, and   all those gum-removing tips. Even if you did not win a physical ARC, if you peer closely at the secret symbols illustrations, it will almost be as good, because I have pretty much put all the important bits in there.

The three ARC winners are Alex Villasante, Ms. Snip, and Laurent. Please e-mail me your mailing address (internspills [at] gmail [dot] com) and whether or not you would like your ARC signed and personalized.

THANK YOU.

  2. Thanks for the card, and congrats to the winners!

    For the rest of us, it's only a moon and a half to go. Until then I'll be contemplating the mystery of the bicycle pump.

  8. What a fabulous note! It reminded me of friends who would do random artwork on my stuff when I was still in school. I miss that now that I'm a supposed grownup. Thanks for bringing it back!

  9. Yay -- I'm in the center! It's (marginally almost within hailing distance of) as good as winning!

    (Love the idea of the thank-you card, seriously.)

  10. Btw, been meaning to ask: I know it would be unusual, but did you by any chance have input to the copy on the book's back cover? What I've seen of it -- the "what you believe will happen/what does happen" numbered lists -- does a good job of sounding like you (at least as you've revealed yourself here).

    1. that's a great question, JES! those two lists were something I wrote while trying out different versions of Ch. 1. I didn't end up using them in the book itself, but Molly (editor) and I liked them, so used a shorter/edited version for the flap copy :)
