Pallid Light: The Waking Dead - Book Contest

Win a Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) of Pallid Light: The Waking Dead


I have a number of ARCs of my new novel, Pallid Light - to be released in Feb. 2010. So, I thought I'd give away a couple of copies. To make some sport of it, those interested can offer the location of any city named "Temperance." Example, Temperance, CA. (Just made that up, so it doesn't count).

The novel takes place in Temperance, Illinois (fictive location). If you'd like to enter for a random drawing, then either post or email send me a message with a location of another Temperance.

The contest will run until the end of 2009 (Dec. 31st).

Well, a friend and I got drunk years ago on Temperance Street in Toronto. We thought the idea was hilarious. She was arrested, I was politely asked to return to my hotel and stay there.

hum, I'll have to see what I can find, but my first two attempts to find such failed miserably.

I missed the contest. However, I will buy and read PALLID LIGHT! Looking forward to it!

p.s.: I've never lived in Temperance, Anywhere. The smaller the town, the more bars it seems to host.

Thanks to everyone for giving the contest a try. Particularly those who were bold enough to post their cities on the forum!

Because of the number of entries, I've increased the number of winners to 6. I've emailed all of the winners, or contacted them through their blogs. If I do not hear back from them in two weeks, I'll selected another person - my guess is that won't happen. But just in case.

Lois - Thanks for your post. You're lucky you've never lived in "my" Temperance. :) Bad news all the way around
