Red Shirts & Reviews

Haven’t you always wanted to be part of the shadowy underworld of outlaw spellcasters? To live the life of a magical gangster, full of danger, intrigue, unlawful conjurations, and bucketfuls of cold hard cash?

This is the book I want you to review. So make with the clicky already.

Well, here’s your chance!

I will be offering a chance to be a minor character in an upcoming story–no, wait, let’s be honest here. What I am really offering is to use your name (or the name of someone you designate) as a minor character in an upcoming story.

All you have to do is be one of the first ten people to leave a review of Duel Visions and then contact me with the link.

I will definately use the name you want in a story. It will be a piece set in the Dracoheim universe, starring Erik Rugar, Agent of the Committee for Public Safety. I will be writing about an operation to bring down a gang of outlaw magi and I need names for the criminal wizards and their various goons, henchmen, molls, and thugs.

If you specify something in particular you want–to be a particular sort of character, to die a particularly gruesome death, to be the one that gets away, to be one of the cops rather than a gangster–I will try my best to accommodate you, but the story comes first and I may not be able to do what you want.

Once I have the story completed I will send a copy to all of the people who gave their names to a character. That’s right, you get to read it before I send it out for submission.

Such a deal, huh?

All I am asking for is an honest review. If you think Duel Visions sucks, go ahead and say that in the review. I’ll still use your name in my story. You don’t even have to worry about me taking my revenge for a negative review on your namesake because, let’s face it, this is me we’re talking about here and your namesake is likely to come to a bitter end no matter what you say in your review.

I ordered some happy endings but they’ve been on backorder since 2007.

I don’t ordinarily come out and ask for reviews, but this book means a lot to me, and also to my coauthor and my publisher. But I want to give something back so I thought this would be a fun way to say thank you to everyone who has supported my work through the years.

I mean, for “falling down an elevator shaft during a gun battle with the law” values of fun.

    Do reviews published prior to this post count? Because I wouldn’t mind infecting your work with my name.
