Welcome to Imaginary Jesus Week! (& Giveaway!)

It's an Imaginary Jesus!It’s Imaginary Jesus week here at Short Version the Blog. This means that every day (or nearly every day), there will be some kind of Imaginary-Jesus-inspired festivity.

Why, you ask?

Because I really love this book. And I want you to read it.

And what is today’s festivity, you ask?

It’s a giveaway! I’m giving away a signed copy of Imaginary Jesus by Matt Mikalatos.

(I assume there is much hooting and hollering on your end. I’ll give you a minute.)

Imaginary Jesus is currently being offered as a free ebook at several different internet ebook retailers:

Why do you need a signed copy if you’re just going to get a free ebook anyway? So many questions today!
Because signed things are cooler than unsigned things, and even if you tracked Matt Mikalatos down and asked him to sign your ereader, you might end up regretting it when you realized that you just ruined your fancy screen.

So, to enter this giveaway, I need you to do three things:

  1. Download a free e-copy of Imaginary Jesus. If you have any questions about that, ask me in the comments or e-mail me or tweet at me. I sort of do ebooks for a living, and I should be able to answer any questions.
  2. Share a link to this post. Share it anyway you like: Facebook it, tweet it, write it on a Post-it note and show it to your friend. Share it as many times and ways as you want. I’ll count each time as a new entry.
  3. Comment. Leave me a comment telling me that you’ve shared a link to this post and how many times.

Check back here through out the week. I’ve got an interview with Imaginary Jesus Week’s guest of honor, Matt Mikalatos coming up, as well as some other exciting festivities. You’ve got until the end of the week to enter, and I’ll announce the winner on Friday.

Disclaimer: I work at the fine publishing house that publishes this book, but I’m celebrating this title of my own free will, and I don’t receive any compensation for it other than the warm fuzzies that I get when I see you’ve downloaded the book.

  • I’m sharing on Facebook. I’m really enjoying the reviews, Jesse. To be honest, I don’t think I would have picked up this book if I hadn’t read about it here–and now it’s on top of my reading pile.

  • Thanks for the free ebook. Will I really be able to read a whole book on my iPhone Kindle app? Would love to have the signed copy of book! I shared a link to your post on my blog and via Twitter and Facebook.

  • I am looking forward to reading the book. I have downloaded it and have sent the link to several people. To some, more than once, (my avid reader son) as, unlike me, they did not get the value of the message the first time. (I do this several times a DAY about other things.) I hope that REPLY is the same as “Comment” so that I will be eligible for the drawing. Thank you for writing and sharing.

  • […] On Monday, I started things off by announcing a giveaway. Let’s not mention Tuesday. Wednesday, Matt Mikalatos gave this excellent interview. Thursday, I posted my review of the book, and Friday I told you all about one of my favorite Imaginary Jesus mediums, the audio book. […]
