Get Killed by Marcus Sakey

Marcus Sakey's latest novel, The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes, goes on sale today and to celebrate the author is holding a very special contest. All you have to do to enter is read the book and post your review online somewhere, whether it's GoodReads, Amazon, or even your Facebook page. You can even post multiple reviews in multiple places. Just send Sakey an email (preorder[at]marcussakey[dot]com) to let him know where and you'll be entered into his contest to be a character in his next book. No telling how big or small your part may be, or if you'll live until the book's end, but your name will be immortalized in a piece of Chicago fiction. Winners will be announced August 1. Start reading Two Deaths early and post your review within the next two weeks and it'll be counted as a triple entry.

If you just can't get enough Sakey, he'll also be at the Hidden Shamrock (2723 N. Halsted) at 7pm on Sunday, 6/12, to read from the new book.
