Rick Gualtieri (rickgualtieri) Figured this was a good topic for marketing.

I've participated in others' contests before, my latest being a massive giveaway hosted by author Elle Casey.

I recently reached out to my readers and asked what would interest them: free books, iPads, kindle fire, cash, etc. The results surprised the hell out of me.

The number one thing people were interested in (for my stuff at least): being made a character in a book and dying an appropriately hideous death. Horror readers are so awesome!

Armada Volya | 130 comments I don't remember the name of the author, but he was selling character spots in his books and donating money to charity.
