Ladies and sporadic man, we are in the home stretch re Man Repeller, Seeking Love, Finding Overalls and your subsequent book shelf. If you pre-order my book, I can shut the shit up about you pre-ordering my book, so…what do you think?
Today in ways to entice you, there is a prize: a limited-edition paper doll illustration that appears not unlike the above photographed indecent me. While the doll’s intentions are actually to help you get acquainted with the various sartorial objects depicted in said book and to grant you the opportunity to dress me up however you please (wedding dress torn up into a skirt with only a strapless bra over it to count as a top, anyone?) I’d actually suggest getting freaky and practicing some creepy voodoo shit on me as just simply an experiment to see just how well connected we really are.
Here, I am told, is how it works: 1. You pre-order the book – it doesn’t matter how or when you pre-order: from any retailer, any time, including now, before now, and all the way through September 9th. You just need proof of purchase; 2. You screen shot your receipt— block out your address unless you want me stalking you which I am not above; 3. You Instagram that shit using the appropriate hash tags (#manrepeller, #labia, kidding about #labia) and tag @GrandCentralPub, et voila.
You wait and wait and wait until publication day (the 10th!) to see if you’re one of the randomly selected winners via Instagram. There will be 25 of you which makes you a quarter of a century wise!
The exclusive, limited-edition, signed paper doll illustrations (two examples above) of some of the outfits in the book, are drawn by Alice Rutherford. They’re yours and yours only, and will come signed with a note by me that may something like, “I am deathly afraid of bees. Did you know that?” So, I ask once more: what do you think? Get to it!
