HNT - Killing To Support Literacy

Alas, poor Peter, I wrote him well.

I'd like to take the opportunity this week during the HNT festivities to announce a special charitable fund raiser that I'm taking part in.

To raise funds to support a local literacy program, I'm auctioning off the opportunity for someone to become a character in my online horror thriller "I, Death" -- The serialized tragic story of a teenager named Peter O'Mallick who is using an online journal to try to come to terms with a death curse. (The story contains scenes of horror, x-rated sex and adult language -- reader discretion is strongly advised - there, that oughta ensure a few links from the curious and dirty minded)

Simply, here's how it works. Between August 18th and 31st 2006, people can make bids by monitoring the bid total at www.hamiltonreads.ca and emailing their bid to: info@hamiltonreads.ca. Full details/rules available via the Hamilton Reads News page.

The winner will be required to provide a few pieces of information about themselves, such as their first name (or nickname if they prefer) hobbies, phobias, favourite sayings, etc, and the choice of whether they'd like to be a walk-on character or be a victim of Peter O'Mallick's death curse. So based on who the winner is and what they chose and provide, I'll work them into the story. The winner will also get a personally signed copy of my horror collection One Hand Screaming and of course, a world of appreciation for helping to support literacy.

For those people interested in helping support literacy, but unable to participate in the auction, I've put a few "I, Death" branded t-shirts up for sale via Cafe Press and will donate all proceeds of sales to the Hamilton Literacy Council.




Alas, Osbasso, we HNT folks owe him well . . .

I can already tell, that your story is going to be a great success. It has all the right ingredients: sex, horror, and a very worthy cause.

Good luck and happy HNT!

I hope your fundraising goes well my friend. It's a cause that belongs in the foreground as it makes learning that much easier.
