20 Questions for Yours Truly, Update!

Hey, everyone! Thank you so much to everyone who asked questions for the 20 Questions Minimate Contest! As you can see on the 20 Questions page, we received close to eighty questions in the comments alone — and many more via e-mail!

Right now, my publisher and I are going through the questions. We’ll pick twenty of them for me to answer — the twenty questioners will be contacted so that they can receive their minimate prizes. Then I’ll be answering the questions in a video that will be posted this month.

I’ll update you once I know when the video will be up. Thanks for participating! There are some really amazing questions!

How to Get a Goth Girl Minimate

The Goth Girl Minimate is pretty freakin’ cool. Sorry if it sounds immodest to say it, but come on — she’s awesome!



So, people want to know how they can get one of their own. Who can blame them?

Well, one way to get the minimate is to buy Goth Girl Rising! Hey, let’s face it — if you’re on this page, odds are you were going to buy the book anyway, right? So why not get a little something extra in the bargain? To find out how to get the minimate when you buy the book, go to this page.

But hey — some of my favorite words in the world are “No Purchase Necessary.” So, here’s another — new — way to get the Goth Girl Minimate. It’s dead easy.

See that very cool Goth Girl Rising widget a little further down on the page? Of course you do. Just click on the “Share” button and put that widget on your MySpace or Facebook or web site or blog. Then, send an e-mail towidget@barrylyga.com containing the link to your page with the widget AND your full mailing address.

Now, it’s no fair to create an obscure, dead page on your blog or your site and just stash the widget there. That’s not cool. No, the idea here is to spread the love! So, put the widget somewhere prominent, like on your front page. Stick it there, then send the e-mail.

Every week for the month of October, I will choose fifteen winners at random and send them minimates.

Here’s the widget — have fun!

UPDATE: Oh, and yes: You can post the widget AND submit a receipt to get a minimate. If you end up with two, hey — good for you!
