Save Amanda Feral !!!

And the winners are.....
Irwirum/Larena and Jacabur2008!

Please send your snail mail address to The Qwillery at theqwillery aht gmail daht com so that The Qwillery can send you a MMPB of Happy Hour of the Damned and a cute Zombie Devil Duckie!  Thank you to everyone!

Remember -- Battle of the Network Zombies is out today.

As part of the Save Amanda Feral movement, The Qwillery invited some of Mark Henry’s peers to blurb about him or the Amanda Feral series. Some were entirely speechless, others not so much:

"Mark Henry is a loveable, incorrigible scoundrel who tells the best damn stories about the worst damn people. His vampires, werewolves, zombies, and demons are fundamentally horrible, yet you root for them anyway -- which is truly the mark of a master, in my not-so-humble opinion. The Amanda Feral books are much, much funnier than hell."  ~ Cherie Priest

"If picking best friends from the dead were a team sport, and I was the captain (of course I'd be the captain)--I'd choose Amanda Feral to be on my team. She's like my fashion savvy, fabulous, designer shoe-wearin' twin. Only not... because well, you know, she has that eating people habit I can't seem to break her of. So maybe we're more like fraternal twins than identical..

Ahem... but if I were dead--she'd be my homeslice. Amanda Feral rocks!" ~Dakota Cassidy

"Mark Henry is the king fu master of snark." ~ Mario Acevedo

"Mark and I are Twitter addicted.On the flight home from Dragon Con 09 we decided to share an online service on our only charged electronic device - my iPod. Well, as you can imagine, it was a twitter blizzard and we got so confused that Mark tweeted as me and I tweeted as him..Things were said by him (as me) that I may never live down (so dirty). Maybe that is a good thing.

It was like the Hanukkah of iPods even though my battery said it was going to shut off it never did..not until we landed...only with Mark Henry can you have Twitter miracles. He's a good friend and mentor...and a dirty dirty perv."  ~Synde Korman, League of Reluctant Adults Moderator

"Mark who?" ~Nicole Peeler

"Mary Henry writes the most filthy-minded, vomit-inducing, mind-exploding zombie fiction you'll ever read. You'll laugh until you pee your pants, but you'll join the rest of us fools who soiled our underwear and ended up on the floor curled into the fetal position. Those weekly visits to the shrink won't stop you from picking up more Amanda Feral adventures, either. Go on, addict, enjoy the crack that is Happy Hour of the Damned. I'll see you in group. (Don't talk about your mother. We all know it's Mark Henry's fault.)" ~Michele Bardsley

Only Mark Henry can make zombies sexy! Read Amanda Feral or he will send his uberstyilsh, diabolical creations after you!"   ~Molly Harper

"Hey Mark--where's the Dragon King?" ~Jeanne Stein

"Mark Henry needs to be stopped. He's been brainwashing us with his preternatural mind control skills. Otherwise, how could we possibly find books filled with zombies, fashion and explosive diarrhea jokes funny?

Because of Mark's books, I, myself, have experienced the shame of spontaneous oral incontinence in public. That's why I started a new group called Team Beige. Team Beige is for people who prefer their comedy only mildly amusing and always politically correct. We prefer puns over cutting wit. We prefer political correctness over boundary pushing. And for the love of all that's holy, we never ever enjoy reading about zombie sex. Or sex at all, for that matter.

If you haven't read Mark's books (Happy Hour of the Damned, Road Trip of the Living Dead or the forthcoming Battle of the Network Zombies), I suggest you run out now and buy copies for yourself and all your friends. How else will you be able to fully understand the scope Mark Henry's depravity? Don't hesitate, friends: Team Beige needs you today.~Jaye Wells

Finally, a photo of Mark Henry courtesy of Rob Thurman:

Mark 'Hung Like a Woolly Mammoth' Henry will come to your porch and shake his sweet angel ass if you save Amanda! Or, if that's not your thing, Mark Henry and his sweet angel ass will *not* show up on your porch and respect your restraining order if you save Amanda!

~Rob Thurman

The Qwillery is giving away 2 copies of the Mass Market Paperback of Happy Hour of the Damned each with an adorable Zombie Devil Duckie.

So here is what you have to do to have the chance to win a copy of the novel and a duckie: leave a comment. That’s it. We’ll put all the names in a hat or some other suitable receptacle and pull two out. Ok, we’ll make it more interesting – if you tweet the contest, we’ll put your name in for the tweet as well. You can tweet as much as you like, but it only counts once. If you also mention the contest on Facebook, we’ll add your name again. You can mention it on Facebook a zillion times (which would probably cause everyone to unfriend you), but you only get one extra entry. So you can get your name placed in the receptacle a maximum of 3 times (comment, tweet, FB mention). Provide us a link in the comments so we know that you tweeted or Facebooked.

The contest is open to all humans on the planet earth. Contest ends at 11:59pm Eastern Time on Monday, February 22, 2010.

  14. Please don't enter me since I already have my own copy and the one I'm giving away. The Zombie Duckie is awesome though! I might just have to find myself one of those. Love all the comments about Mark! Great giveaway!

  15. I would be happy to read a Mark Henry book and the comments by author writers made me laugh.

    And I need a zombie duck. How do we get one of those if we don't win?

    throuthehaze at gmail dot com

  19. I'm totally overwhelmed by the (forced) outpouring of love from my peers, I'm sure I'll have to pay them back eventually. Also...I have no clue what Jeanne Stein's comment means. Any ideas?

  20. OMG! I so need to read Mark's books! The comments were great, and made an already good sounding series sound even better.

    Plus, zombie ducks! Who doesn't need a zombie duck?!

  21. Must...have...duckie...! (Book would be good too!) Heh.

    Too much fun watching Mark and Rob and Zombie Joe snark.:P

  22. Mark - I did not 'force' your peers to pour out love. :)

    Haven't a clue what the comment means.

  23. Great post - please enter me.

  24. I can hardly wwait for my coppy of Battle of the Network Zombies to get here. I am so excited!
    And I Facebooked this contest, cause it's not like I don't spam my FB friends with enough Mark Henry propoganda :-D http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/profile.php?ref=profile&id=1183093994 Hopefully that link works.

  25. Really, considering Mark & Amanda, the most suitable container would be a spare skull that you 'just happen' to have lying around.

  26. "Mark who?"

    I love you, Nicole Peeler.
    (and you, Mark Henry.)
