Book Giveaway

My good friend and fellow Shadow Mountain author is giving away some books and T-Shirts on his blog. Notice that I'm linking to HIS contest, even though that weenie hasn't said a darn thing about my blog tour. So if you want to win a free copy of "The 13th Reality," which I must say is a darn good YA read, pop on over to his blog and post a comment.

May I suggest something like, "Why haven't you posted about Savage's blog tour?" or "Has anyone ever told you that you look remarkably like Mr. Bean?" Those will make his day and increase your chances of winning. In fact I will send a copy of "13th Reality" myself to the first person who makes both of those comments.

Note 1: See, give a guy a little trash talkin in public and everything works out. Since he did so kindly add a great link to the blog tour, I'll change the rules. The first person to mention Mr. Bean in any way on his blog, gets a free book from me. On a serious note, James Dashner is an amazing writer, and my Farworld series would not have happened without him, so drop by his blog. He will definitely make you laugh.

His blog is http://www.jamesdashner.com/
The website for his series is http://www.the13threality.com/



Note 2: Someone pointed out that I inadvertently posted a picture of the actual Mr. Bean. Wow, my bad. I’m sure it was an accident. I could have sworn that was Dashner at a Barnes and Noble book signing. I know that’s his suit. But for the sake of truthfulness in advertising or global warming, or some important cause, here is a real picture of James Dashner. You do have to admit the likeness is eerie, is it not?

Yep. I can see the resemblance. That's too funny.

James Dashner said...

Sorry for my ignorance. I distinctly remember you saying something about not doing this until July and August, so shut your trap. Maybe if your tour rules weren't so freaking complicated I would have linked by now. Buddy.

Dude, I'm totally planning on major blog-endorsing you, just wait. But now it's gonna seem like I only did it to calm your nasty temper down. You need help.

Farworld rocks!!!!!!

Brian said...

Ha Ha Ha. That is funny! I already have a copy though, so I don't need to post those comments.

Karin said...

O.K. --where's my free book, dude?!

DesLily said...

Whelllll... the 13th Reality is sitting here in my tbr pile! Now he does a giveaway?? cha! lol

J Scott Savage said...

Great job, Karin! Made my day. I just e-mailed you to see where you want the book sent.

Stephanie said...

Oh come on....that IS Mr. Bean!!

Frank Cole said...

Mr. Bean? I don't know if I see it? I was thinking more along the lines of that guy in Rat Race or Johnny English... wait a minute. That's the same guy!

Rachelle said...

You are hilarious! Remind me to stay on your good side though, so you don't come up with any look a likes. :)

Jennifer Leffler said...

Jeff your link to James the 13th reality is incorrect. Here is the correct one: http://www.the13threality.com/

J Scott Savage said...

Great catch, Jennifer. Thanks for the update. I have fixed it.

Rachelle,

No worries. James was actually the one who pointed it out to me. People tend to tell me I look like John Depp. Or was it the rat in Ratatouille? Some famous male actor I'm sure.

Terry said...

So is it too late to get a free Farworld? I don't think that my blog would help your book. It is public the way a deserted island is. I did post a link to this blog.
I love your books!

Funny! One day while my husband was riding Trax to work, he noticed sitting across from him a guy proofreading a manuscript. Because my husband likes writing and his curiosity got the better of him, he asked what he was reading. It was, of course, James Dashner before the book printing. Heck of a nice guy, he's taken the time to email a couple of times and answer my husbands questions. Haven't read the book yet, I'll pop on over there and enter.

Crystal Liechty said...

WHY DID I BUY THE BOOK!?! I could have gotten it for free! And I got James to sign it but he used the word 'hoochimama' at some point. Yeah. What do you do with that?

Scott,

First of all I have to apologize for not being by lately. I've been SO sick, it's not funny. What IS funny (and I spit soda out all over the desk) is that HE DOES LOOK LIKE MR. BEAN!!! Holy God I am DYING!! LOLOLOL

ROTFLMAO

Ok...And I'm sorry that I missed the fantasy contest! ALL the good things happen when I'm away!

xo

OK..It's done. Dashner Dude has my opinion AND I asked why he didn't post about the tour. I told him that I did...and I just met you last month : ) See Scott, the things I do for you!
