Dave Eggers still hasn't gotten back to me on Take A Book For Charity. I'm going to assume that he's fallen in love with Eclipse and therefore doesn't want to autograph it and return it so I can auction it off. But I'm also reluctant to move on with that effort until I hear back from him, so to continue to promote Eclipse and to help the Shaw Twins, I'm going to start a new program, one I call:
If You Give A Blog A Book.
Here's how it works: If you have a blog, or a Facebook page, or a MySpace page, or any other kind of Internet presence, and you are willing to review Eclipse and talk about it on your blog/page/presence, I will send you a free, official, copy of Eclipse for you to review and write about.
You don't have to give a good review; you just have to review it honestly. I'm not trying to bribe you with this (that'll come later, that and the blackmail.) I just want to get the word out.
So if you're interested in reviewing a copy of Eclipse, drop me a line at "thetroublewithroy[at]yahoo.com". Put "Review" or "Give a Blog a Book" or something like that in the email subject line, so that I know it's not one of those emails I keep getting from my boss asking when I'm planning on doing something productive with my time.
Eclipse: Claudius wanted to be the first man to reach the stars, and maybe he was. Or maybe things went horribly, murderously, wrong. Click the link to read the first chapter, free.
