Do You Know What Today Is? (FREE BOOKS!)

Dear Readers,

It’s the official pub date for the SORTA LIKE A ROCK STAR paperback!

I already purchased and read SORTA LIKE A ROCK STAR, you're saying?

If so, do you feel suddenly confined and slightly warm?

That’s because I’m giving you a big ole hug. Thanks so much for reading. Thanks for supporting Q. I take this stuff pretty seriously, my work. You’ve already helped to keep my dream alive.

If you haven't purchased and read SLARS...I’m giving away ten SIGNED paperback copies!

Yes, you heard me right.

TEN!

SIGNED!

Paperback copies of SLARS are up for grabs.

But here's the catch: you can't have one.

What? I hear you saying.

Spread the love, people. Pay it forward. It will come back to you.

I want to give copies to your students, friends, and/or family members.

Here's how it works:

If you know someone who needs to read a book about hope, dealing with depression, being different, overcoming tragedy, and making unlikely friendships...if you know someone who absolutely needs to read SORTA LIKE A ROCK STAR, send that person's name and mailing address (US residents only)--along with a few sentences explaining why you think your person needs a copy--to:

matthewquickwriter [at] gmail.com

You have one week to enter!

(Please make sure the book is appropriate for the reader you select. No book is appropriate for every reader.)

I will pick the ten people who need to read SLARS most (based on your input) and send these readers in need books ASAP.

(If you e-mail me an entry, I will answer your e-mail regardless of whether your person was chosen.)

What's that I hear you saying? I don't need no stinkin' contest! I want to purchase my own copies! 

Awesome! You can now purchase SLARS at a lower price and with a fancy new cover, discussion questions, and the first few chapters of my next book, BOY21. Just hit one of the links above (and on the right) under the new red SLARS cover featuring the head-banging-hair girl.

To those of you who have purchased copies of SLARS and/or taught it in your classrooms, I thank you. Every book sold is a vote for my career.

I'll be looking forward to your e-mails, and then sending out copies to your people. Thanks for the love and support.

To be continued, and please keep being you.
