Calling all able-bodied men, women, children, pets, aliens pretending to be humans, lycanthropes, vampires, various other things that go bump in the night, and all their friends.

I’m currently embarking upon a social reading experiment called READ AROUND THE WORLD designed to encourage reading, literacy, global community, and plain old goofy fun.

I’m asking people to read an excerpt (which I'll assign) from my novel, DEATH, THE DEVIL, AND THE GOLDFISH, on camera and post it to YouTube. This will eventually result in the entire book being read out loud, on camera, all over the world! While the experiment is underway I'll be donating 50% of my royalties to the World Literacy Foundation. 

The experiment has been running since October 15th and so far so good. But I need some help to keep it rolling. While I have enough people signed up for the next month I still need around a 100 more people to complete the project so here is what I’m asking:

  1. That you sign up yourself.  It’s dead easy, just click the following link:

2. That you share this information with your friends/family/local sewing circle and using your considerable powers of persuasion to get them to sign up. Or on a more serious note, just share it with one person, that should do the trick too :)

If you can help in any way I’d certainly appreciate it! :)
