Crime/thriller author Duane Swierczynski had a cool incentive: preorder a copy of his new novel Fun & Games and he’ll send you a goofy postcard from his cross-country road trip. I preordered the Kindle edition a few weeks back, and this week I received my postcard.
What a cool incentive. The postcard would make a great bookmark had I purchased a paper copy. Now it will probably get lost in the piles of crap on my desk, and then I’ll find it in a year or so and go “Oh yeah… that was cool.”
I kind of wish I’d thought of this one. But then I thought I couldn’t afford it. Of course, then I realized I’d probably only need to send out like five postcards. I could probably swing that. Well, maybe four.
