Tomorrow is the official release date for my book Chocolate & Vicodin: My Quest for Relief from the Headache that Wouldn’t Go Away. Someone told me they found it in a Barnes & Noble this weekend and Amazon started shipping it days ago, so it’s already starting to trickle out. Tomorrow you should be able to purchase it from fine bookstores everywhere, and if they don’t have it, ask them to order it. Thank you to everyone who’s made this possible, including you guys. Some of you have been reading this blog for years, and I might know you better by your email addresses than by your names, but I’m grateful for all your support.
I’d like people to start spreading the word about the book. I know that most of the books I read are recommendations from friends, bloggers or people on Twitter or Facebook. I want to encourage you guys to let your friends know about Chocolate & Vicodin, so I’m launching a contest.
Visit the Chocolate & Vicodin: Spread the Word Contest page and you can enter numerous different ways to win either an iPod Shuffle, a $25 Amazon gift card, or a $10 iTunes gift card. You can tweet, like the book on Facebook, leave reviews on Amazon or Goodreads, email your friends, or post the video trailer or a site link on your blog. Once you do, submit proof via that form and you’ll be entered to win!
Winners will be drawn randomly. Anyone is eligible, including international readers. The contest is open until 11:59pm EST on May 30, 2011. Thanks for spreading the word!
