I have a bit of a strange request: My publisher is looking for photos of Defending Jacob on display in bookstores. I don’t have any, but I said I’d call out the troops.
So if any of you happen to be in a bookstore in the next few days and you happen to have a smart phone on you, I’d be very grateful if you would snap a picture of the book and send it along. The photos will be used for an in-house presentation at Random House; the idea is to show how prominently bookstores are displaying the book.
To sweeten the pot, the best photo will win a signed first edition of any of my three books — your choice.
Either post your photo here on Tumblr or email it to me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to let me know what bookstore your photo shows.
Feel free to share this message, forward it, tape it to your forehead, etc. The more submissions, the better.
