// NEW VOICEMAIL NUMBER
* (623) 239-2942

// CONTEST
* That's right, we are finally holding a giveaway contest. We're calling this the "Come Out Of The Coffin Contest"!
- All you have to do is post a review of OoTC anywhere (but iTunes and similar podcast directories would be preferred) and then send me an email with your full name and address. Every review is an entry into the contest. Feel free to post all of your reviews and then send me one email with a list of them all, or multiple emails will be fine.
- Only verified reviews will count as entries. They don't have to be 5-star reviews, but if you do have criticism, make it honest and constructive. Only entries with a real name and shipping address will be validated for the contest.
- I will draw three random names from all and those winners will each get a copy of BLAMELESS signed by Gail Carriger.
- The contest ends May 1st, 2011. (Maybe.)

* Helpful links to iTunes and Facebook just for starters.
