We normally don't promote contests not directly running through our site, but this is too good not to mention. San Diego author Allen Dusk is having a contest where he encourages victims of bedbug bites to post photos of the damage the little creeps have done to their bodies on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #ShadyPalms. Come October 1st, 2012, Dusk will announce the winners at his website, where the lucky bite-ridden winners will score a signed copy of his book Shady Palms.
Shady Palms synopsis:
The Shady Palms is a sleazy motel, burrowed on the edge of El Cajon, which is haunted by rumors of dead hookers found between mattresses and peep holes drilled through walls. When Special Agent Daniels targets the motel during an investigation, the nefarious owner, Sanjay, must scramble to conceal evidence of his own dark deeds. Just when he believes things can't get any worse, motel guests begin to vanish without a trace. Can Sanjay discover the truth behind the phenomena threatening his motel before the Feds get suspicious, or does he risk exposing his own sordid enterprises to seek help from the outside?
Shady Palms goes on sale in October, and if you are in Sand Diego on October 20th, hit up the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore at 2:00pm for a book signing!
