The Final Tease!
The Final Tease!
Today is the final day of The Shameless Mama's Boy Teaser Contest. You'll find the last clues of the tease for you to choose from for your entry. Remember, you only need Five to enter and win. But if you want that Special Clue for the bonus cash, you'll have to stop by tomorrow.
Now, it's my pleasure to introduce you to the people who are bringing Mama's Boy alive and into print. You may already know them as the publishers of the fantastic dark horror magazine, Insidious Reflections. IR has featured some of the hottest names in horror, like Jack Ketchum, Joe Lansdale, Jeff Strand and J.F. Gonzalez. And they've just received commercial distribution, which means they'll be spreading their dark joy far and wide across the land.
I am privileged to be the first author to have a title published by IR's new small press, Insidious Publications. IP is the horror press monster being born of the devious minds of publishers, Chris Hedges and Paul Danda. This dastardly pair will be bringing Mama's Boy to you this summer in the fine form of a signed and numbered limited edition chapbook. I'm hearing whispers of silk end papers and details that will make this, one beautiful maiden launch for Insidious Publications. I'm truly honored to be their first.
So with the help of Chris and Paul, and their minions, Insidious Publications will help me tell you the wicked tale of Frank Doe. Scarred unrecognizable by fire, he has been silent for twenty years, that is until a talented young doctor arrives at his home in Penn’s Asylum. Driven by her own secrets, she risks everything to unlock Frank’s dark history, and the twisted making of a monster.
So, there you have it, the last of The Shameless Mama's Boy Tease Contest clues. Well, of course, there's the Special Clue still to come tomorrow. So, I hope you'll stop by for the final recap on Sunday. I've had fun teasing you. I hope you've enjoyed it, too.
PS - Below is a little recap of the contest rules, just in case you need a peek. Good luck!
The "Shameless Mama's Boy Teaser Contest!"
Just stop by my Blog at MySpace throughout the week and scavenge a total of Five Clues. Email your list to firstname.lastname@example.org (temporary account) before midnight, Sunday, April 2, 2006.
Combine any items from the list for Five Clues:
1. Visual clues (hint, hint...start here or go back to Sunday's)
2. Author's Name (uh, tough one)
3. Short Story Titles by Author
4. Name of Publishing Company
5. Artist's Names - Cover Art or Illustrations
6. Name of the Foreword Author
7. Character's Names
8. Books Titles by the Foreword Author
9. One Story Title from The Horror Library's Fresh Meat Section
So, it's just that easy. Provide an accurate list of 5 clues and I'll toss your name in the hat. An independent party will draw the winning name, and that lucky Shameless Mama's Boy Teasee will receive a $10 gift certificate to the magnificent Shocklines.com. I hope you'll play, even if it's just to humor me. I'm sensitive, you know. And heck, $10 isn't too shabby for a couple of clicks. And if you provide the "Special Clue," which will be made pretty darn obvious, I'll make it $15!
