reviewers and patrons wanted!

Hey folks, your pals at Pioneers Press are running a summer contest series starting today! The first author in the series will be me! My book came out earlier this year via Pioneers and they say it is a substantial, engrossing work of nonfiction. 
1) You can make art based around my work and post it anywhere on social media. Collages, drawings, paintings, your call. Art is good for your heart and soul. Do this, if not for the amazing prizes, for yourself.

2) Post a review on my Goodreads page or re-post your Goodreads review on Amazon.

3) Create and share an audio recording of your favorite passage. Here's an example recorded by Pioneers author Jessie Lynn McMains.

Once you enter, please email or reply to this email to let us know you've done it and tag it "traceramsey."

They will have a panel of judges weighing in on this one featuring some of your favorite Pioneers Press authors and compatriots.

1) Rare Cometbus zine and book pack featuring out-of-print titles and impossible-to-find gems. This pack includes issues 30, 45, 46, the issue 47 novella Lanky, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52 53, 54, 55, and the issue 56 and 57 books. You will also get one copy of the super rare, out-of-print Good Luck Not Dying book's self-published first edition as well as a BOX of books and zines hand-selected from the Pioneers Press catalog by author Adam Gnade. This is a massive box of summer reading, friends. Many many hundreds of dollars in value--if you even want to put a price on things so rare and special.

2) Prize package of rare (read: available pretty much nowhere else besides private collections) zines from the Hard Fifty Zine Library as well as a copy of the out-of-print second edition of Good Luck Not Dying, a copy of Matt Gauck's out-of-print Next Stop Adventure book, a copy of Adam Gnade's novella Locust House, and three books hand-picked off their personal shelves.

3) There are FIVE third placers. Each winner will receive three books hand-picked from my personal collection.

All winners get a copy of All I Want to Do Is Live.

All entries get something. Stickers, zines, books. No one leaves empty-handed.

Contest begins July 17th and ends August 1st!

I will also be their featured artist for the next few weeks so expect to be seeing an exclusive zine giveaway, excerpts, videos, interviews, and fun/interesting/good things posted on various social media outlets.

Happy creating!
