I first met author and podcaster Scott Sigler at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco. I’d known about Scott forever, because he was one of two podcasting success stories (the other being J.C. Hutchins), who were first successful by building huge communities around their projects, and then by transforming their serialized podcasts into mainstream book projects.
So, I’m really excited to be part of a group of people reaching out to promote Scott’s new book, Contagious
The official info:
â€œCONTAGIOUS is a hardcover horror/thriller novel from author Scott Sigler. The book hits stores on December 30, 2008, and Scott is also giving away the entire novel as both a serialized, unabridged podcast and as a serialized PDF. The episodes post every Sunday in both forms, and so far the first two episodes are available at scottsigler.com.
Scott has twelve posters in all, each on a different blog, and each foreshadowing a key plot element. If you get all twelve and put them together in the right pattern, you get a final clue for the book’s big finish. For a list of other blogs hosting a poster, go to www.scottsigler.com/posters.â€
I picked the poster below (which is below the nifty video trailer I found on YouTube).

(not suitable for some people – violence, horror)
