It’s Friday the 13th. And what better reading material for a weekend excursion to, say, Crystal Lake, then the first volume of Justine Geoffrey‘s collected BLACKSTONE Erotica series? Migraineers… you already know our wicked weird-smut authoress and if you don’t, well, here’s your chance to snuggle up with the succubus. Martian Migraine Press is releasing PRIESTESS today in multiple formats AT NO CHARGE TO YOU! Free on Amazon. Free here. You said “gimme some sugar, baby” and Justine said “sure, why the hell not!” cuz she’s a sweetheart like that, natch. With cover art by James Pavelec and some truly shuddersome extras, this is a hefty e-tome you’re going to want weighing down your reading device!
And of course we can’t forget our contest winners! Denise Gorse and Luis Abbadie entered by email with the correct answer, while Joseph Magnuson and Jordan Stratford tweeted their winning guess to us on, yes, Twitter, you wise guys. Bobby Derie chimed in on the fazboog somewhere, and though we’ve lost the original entry, we know he got it. And no, we won’t be revealing the Triple-Word of Power: you can ask the fellas and lady above, if you’re keen to know. They’ll all be receiving a copy of PRIESTESS in the format of their choice, as well as one other MMP title from our growing catalogue!
The PRIESTESS Free Promo will be running until MONDAY SEPTEMBER 16th so please, let the weirdos in your life know and let’s show Justine some eldritch love!
“Laugh all you want, motherf**kers.
You’re forgetting one thing. Or rather, three things.
— from Red Monolith Frenzy Book 1 of the Blackstone series by Justine G
Yes, that Triple-Word of Power sure lets our Justine get away with a lot in the Blackstone series! And she’s never hinted at the actual words, nope, not anywhere in the text, and never in our personal interactions with her either. Which, to be completely honest, we’re rather thankful for, all things considered. As primal ur-spells go, the Triple-Word is a doozy!
Yeah, whatever those dread phonemes are, she’s keeping them to herself. Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t hold a little contest for Migraineers in advance of the release of PRIESTESS (Blackstone Volume One) next FRIDAY the 13th!
CAN YOU GUESS THE TRIPLE-WORD OF POWER?
Guess correctly and win a copy of PRIESTESS and one other MMP title of your choice! Hint: it’s seven syllables in total, and it’s a classic.
Get your guesses in to us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) OR follow us on Twitter @MartianMigraine and tweet your guess to us there OR like Martian Migraine Press on Facebook and post your answer to our wall. Justine will view all entries and select the lucky boys, girls, and assorted entities who get it right. While we try not to look on, because some things? Some things you can’t unsee.
However you do it, just do it, and do it BEFORE THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 13! Because that’s when the contest closes. All correct guesses will receive their prize just in time to start reading on Friday the 13th!
(The answer. Not the winner. The Wendigo isn’t the winner. That would be weird…)
Congratulations to Riley “Jerreth” Vandall, the winner of our little trivia contest earlier this week! He receives a copy of S R Jones‘ Soft From All The Blood for guessing that the northern creature in question is, in fact, the Wendigo: everyone’s favourite cannibal spirit!
However, Vandall tripped up on the bonus question. Sure, Algernon Blackwood’s The Wendigo is certainly the most well-known, and seemingly, the first of the macabré tales featuring the beast to be published… but it’s not. It’s not the first.
This means the bonus question (and the mystery prize that goes with it) is still up for grabs! So…
Who was the author of the first published tale of the Wendigo?
Hint #1: publication occurred in the 19th century…
Hint #2: eight years after publication, the author became a president of something…
First correct answer in the comments below wins the mystery bonus prize!
