Sleazy Noir Music Contest...
"If you wanna save souls, you can't keep on preachin' to the choir. You got to go OUT in the world and testify."
Yeah, but I'm quite comfortable here on the sofa, and so instead... Pointless contest time.
Actually, it’s not completely pointless—just drumming up interest in my novel, The Bastard Hand.
Here’s the deal: I have three copies of the novel in trade paperback, ready to fly through the mail and into your grubby little fingers. I’ll even sign ‘em for you, just so you can proudly say you have a personally autographed copy of The Bastard Hand (and folks will look at you with either envy or complete apathy).
What you need to do:
1. “Follow” Psycho-Noir. Yeah, that little button over there on the right. No, the other right.
2. Tell me what you think is the absolute BEST song ever for reading sleazy, morally reprehensible crime fiction.
3. (and this one is kinda important for my nefarious purposes) Maybe tell some other folks (re-tweet, re-post, re-gurgitate, whatever) about how The Bastard Hand changed your life, gave you hope in a hopeless world, a better credit score, etc….
That’s it. That’s all you have to do. On July 16th, a week from today, I’ll randomly select THREE winners (I say random, because if your taste in music sucks it shouldn’t be counted against you, right?), announce them, and send those bad boys out.
So what are you waiting for? Let the musical chaos ensue!
