I don’t think I’ve mentioned this here, but The Last Mailman 2 is happening. Real, legally binding contracts have been drawn up and signed by all parties. So sometime in the next year, the sequel will be hitting the market. It’s still a long way off. It’s only partially written and my deadline is August 2. Then there’s all the other stuff like editing and cover-making and junk. But let’s be excited NOW! Whoo hoo!
Obviously, a sequel would not be warranted if the first novel wasn’t so well received. So if you are one of the billions upon billions* of people who read and enjoyed The Last Mailman, first I’d like to thank you and second, I’m announcing a contest just for you.
As I teased on facebook last night, the contest involves the cinematic homages I made over the course of the novel. I will have to eventually go through it with a fine-toothed comb, but off the top of my head, I can think of at least 8 movies and 10 references that are hidden inside the story. Not all of them are zombie-related either. All you have to do is name as many of these references as you can.
The person with the most correct answers** will win the following grand prize:
-I will send you an autographed copy of the The Last Mailman 2 once the paperback becomes available, right out of my stash of official publisher-provided copies.
-Also, I will put your name in bright lights when I announce you as the winner on this site and on facebook. 🙂
**- Correct answers are open to my interpretation. There may be similarities to things I wasn’t aware of or maybe you notice something I didn’t even think of…I’m going to do my best to judge with an open mind. I have my answers that I’m thinking of, but it may be possible for you to score even more points by opening my eyes to something.
