UPDATE (Nov. 23): The offer has expired. Dave managed to scrounge up an additional five copies, so we’ll be sending review copies to 15 bloggers altogether. If you missed your chance and would still like to get a copy, remember that they’re only $5.95 and that if you order one through Amazon, you can bundle it into a larger order to qualify for free shipping. Thanks to everyone for their interest.
Are you a blogger? Do you like to get free books in the mail? If so, we’d love to send you a copy of the paper edition of Pamela Johnson Parker’s award-winning chapbook, A Walk Through the Memory Palace. Dave has just ten extra copies on hand, so send us your postal address right away if you’re interested. All we ask in exchange is that you write at least three original paragraphs about the book, aside from whatever poems you decide to quote (and note that the Creative Commons license on the website does permit unlimited quoting for noncommercial purposes).
We’re not asking you to write a favorable review if you decide you don’t like it — though we’re confident you will — and we don’t care if you can’t sling the lit-crit jargon. You don’t even have to be a book or poetry blogger. We’re looking for honest and thoughtful reactions, and any approach is welcome, at any kind of blog.
People who have already purchased copies of Memory Palace have gushed about what a beautiful book it is. Poet-blogger Rachel Barenblat called it “a physically lovely artifact,” and we think you’ll agree. Email your postal address to qarrtsiluni (at) gmail (dot) com, or use our Contact form. We’ll mail to anywhere in the world.
Oh, and if you don’t want to bother with writing a review, see the qarrtsiluni In Print page to order a copy. The holidays are approaching, and remember: chapbooks make great stocking stuffers!
