March 2016 Newsletter
To My Readers:

As you know, we've been selling signed MEG limited edition 20th anniversary hardbacks and giant MEG posters to raise money to support the Adopt-an-Author program. I'm sending this newsletter out a few days early for two reasons:

1. I posted a new MEG-6 CHARACTER CONTEST on my facebook page and wanted ALL MEGHEADS to have an equal shot at it because the prize is huge - everyone who purchased 2 packages will be honored in MEG: NIGHTSTALKERS... if we hit our goal! 

2. The new contest affects the big March 1st drawing which I've extended to March 6th to concur with the new contest below.

NEW MEG-6 CHARACTER CONTEST (February 23 - March 6).

GOAL: We need 100 more orders of either ANGEL or SISTERS Packages by March 6, 2016. (74 to go as of today).

Tell your friends, wake the neighbors... because WHEN we achieve this goal, ALL MEGheads who purchased BOTH Sisters & Angel Packages NOW & since January 2016 will have their names added on a special Adopt-An-Author thank you page in (drum roll please)


That's right, the hardback that comes out in June will have YOUR name on a special Adopt-an-Author supporters page on the last page of the hardback. Also...EVERYONE who purchased a package (since Jan.) will receive a signed and personalized MEG: NIGHTSTALKERS bookplate WHEN WE HIT THIS GOAL But wait, there's more! Anyone who purchases a package before March 6 will also get 10 extra lotto tickets of your NEW ORDER NUMBER added into the pretzel barrel occupying my desk for the MEG-6 fifty minor characters & six MAJORS. Look for the March 7 special newsletter!

BUY the ANGEL or SISTERS packages while they last!
