Updated: This contest has officially ended. Winners were announced on our Twitter page. Congrats to everyone who played and won!
Blackstone Audio is donating ten audiobooks for Tell-All to ten lucky winners. Five of the audiobooks will be actual CDs and the other five will be those popular iPhone apps we were giving away last month. Like our previous giveaways, this contest will go down on our Twitter.
Homework Assignment: Tweet us your most awkward celebrity photo. This means we want a candid of you and a celebrity and it has to be very douche-chilly and 'fanboyish'. We will chose the 5 best and they will have their first crack at whether they want a CD or iPhone app audiobook of Tell-All. Then we'll choose 5 runner-ups and they will get what's left.
No Photoshopping on this one, folks. Make sure you Tweet this photo to our Twitter page @chuckpalahniuk and use the tag #TellAllAudio.
Just remember, don't email us your pics or post them here or on our Facebook. Rather, Tweet them to our @chuckpalahniuk Twitter account. Also, make sure you have an iPhone before you play, as the app won't work anywhere else.
The waiter at the café—a cute, young aspiring writer with face fuzz and a military-surplus cap—stammers with recognition. Square-jawed, buttoned-down Chuck Palahniuk, kicking off a tour for his new book, Tell-All, chats with him smilingly about an Iowa wrestling tournament both he and the waiter have been to, and signs an autograph. Just a couple of bros.
Palahniuk is most famous for Fight Club, the 1996 book (and the testosteroney 1999 Ed Norton–Brad Pitt movie) about bored white-collar guys who get together, strip, and beat each other to a pulp. It spawned the line “The first rule of Fight Club is you do not talk about Fight Club” and is the one novel that disaffected young bros love. Palahniuk is the sort of writer who’s so aggressively gross-out visceral that people have been known to faint at his readings.
Please visit Kevin Tong's site here for additional info. These posters look great and furthermore, Kevin's holding a contest where he will select three people who purchased a poster and give them a FREE "Invisible Monsters" t-shirt (contest details also in the link above).
If you've never bought a poster from a guy like Kevin before, be prepared to be blown away at the quality and detail. This is a must have for any serious Invisible Monsters fan. The posters are a 4 color screen printed poster on Steel Gray 100 lb French Cover Paper 18 x 24 in, hand screen printed, signed and numbered edition of 200. Get one now before they are gone folks!
Chuck Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club, Choke, and Pygmy, slays topics like anarchy, terrorism, and serial killing with dissolute abandon. His new book, Tell-All, leaves sociopathic characters behind for even scarier prey—the celebrities of Hollywood. Delving into cutthroat star making and the life of infamously mendacious Lillian Hellman, the book also offers a challenge to die-hard Palahniuk readers: Are you man enough to read a book with a sparkly cover? The controversial writer says he hopes this book won't get him sued and explains why he's currently reading Judy Blume.
Goodreads: Your books are notorious for challenging notions of decency, which delights your fans and angers your critics. What in Tell-All will surprise your devoted readers and/or incense your detractors?
Chuck Palahniuk: Have you ever noticed that people who want to love a book before reading it will usually love it. Conversely, people who expect to hate a book will—voilà!—hate it. To circumvent this tendency I've arranged to have the actual paper pages of the book impregnated with mild amounts of cocaine, LSD, and Zoloft. Really, something for everyone. Plus, I wrote in oodles of sex. Dinner is served!
Some potentially big news just dropped on our Twitter feed.
@greatnsecret: @chuckpalahniuk: Almodovar has first dibs on "Tell All" film rights. Fuck yeah.
I'll look to confirm this soon. For now, let's hope this is accurate. Having a director of Pedro Almodovar's caliber adapt Tell-All would be amazing.
Chuck's new novel Tell-All is now out in bookstores! If you haven't already ordered the book online, please hit up your local store today! Keep in mind that Top 10 Lists like the New York Times and the LA Times look at opening week sales. So if we want to get Chuck on the Top 10s again, getting the book sooner, rather than later, is the way to go!
If you prefer to avoid the general public, then you can order Tell-All online here.
Also don't forget that Chuck's tour starts today, in Portsmouth, NH. Details for all the tour dates can be found here.
Enjoy! And if you're so inclined, snap a picture of the book, or you posing with the book, and link it here or to our Twitter account @chuckpalahniuk. We'll love you for it!
Last week our Invisible Monsters shirts, featuring a stunning design by Kevin Tong, went on sale. Since then, we've already sold about a third of our inventory. People are loving this shirt and seem to be clamoring to get their's in time for Chuck's tour dates.
But how do you accurately show what such a badass Tshirt will look like when worn? Well, you go and enlist the help of two badasses! And so we brought on fetish and pin-up model, Masuimi Max, to kindly do a photoshoot with the shirts. And to show how the Mens shirts fit, she got her husband and photographer, Morat, to join in on the fun.
We want to sincerely thank Masuimi and Morat for helping us out again on this. It's tough to wrangle together photoshoots last minute. Masuimi and Morat are both extremely busy working professionals, but they were somehow able to squeeze this shoot in late on a Friday night, just to make our deadline. So big gratitude goes their way from all of us.
Masuimi and Morat both model in the pics and both traded off photography duties respectively. Please show them both some love and visit their awesome websites:
We love posting pictures of people wearing our Tshirts, so if you fancy yourself bold enough, snap a pic wearing any of our shirts and we'll post it in our Galleries and on our Flickr. You can email your pics to submissions @ chuckpalahniuk.net.
