There was a very interesting envelope in my mailbox today.
A big white envelope from Sarie Morrell, Author Publicist containing the promo packet and a hardcover copy of Creepers by NYT’lister (and her father) David Morrell.
But…I can’t help but wonder why.
A contest I have no memory of? An early birthday present? Some kind of top-secret viral blogging experiment?
Okay, I HAVE had my eye on this book. I kept meaning to get it from the library (hardover? eek) but I’m so busy lugging my boys’ books around I never remember a damn thing there.
So…it’s a mystery. Correct name and address. (Which is rare—there is an aspect of my address which is uncorrect in almost any listing.) No note. No…nothing. The book and the promo packet. I know…I’ll blog about it!
Off I go to get the Amazon link. Hey, it’s a bargain book. Released Sept 6, 2005. (Interesting notes: My birthday is Sept 6 and my mother’s maiden name is Morel with one R, one L. Not relevant, but interesting to me, anyway.)
So, some kind of promo for paperback release?
I have no idea. Tis a mystery.
EDIT: And yes, I am intrigued and will be reading it ASAP and blogging about it. Just in case that was the point.
EDITING AGAIN: Another mystery—I’d like to know who the hell deleted my MySpace page cause it sure as hell wasn’t me. I am NOT going through that again. DAMMIT. :rant:
