  1. Your readers should know that in celebration of the mass market paperback release of “Ghost Radio” by Leopoldo Gout the book’s official blog (http://ghostradio.wordpress.com/category/countdown-to-paper/) is hosting a series of contests with chances to win autographed copies of the book and other prizes!

    The contests close on March 13, 2010.

    So pop over to the blog and enter now. It only takes a few seconds.

    The chance of free books and other cool stuff … what are you waiting for?

    Here’s a sample of some of the raves “Ghost Radio” has received:

    “Ghost Radio reminded me of early Stephen King — Carrie and Pet Sematary and The Dead Zone. The story sticks with you long after you’ve finished the final page.”

    – James Patterson

    “A first novel that moves with deserved confidence into Stephen King territory … Palpable, almost visible cross-cultural creepiness that never lets up: very smart thrills.”

    – Kirkus Reviews

    “A deliciously creepy yarn … Gout’s fusion of radio-show culture and paranormal occurrences produces a winning compound.”

    – Booklist

    “A thrilling literary and visual experience, this contemporary ghost story set in Mexico is a fast-moving and enjoyable read. The story and writing style recall early Stephen King and Joe Hill’s Heart-Shaped Box.”

    – Library Journal
