Blackstone Audio Is Giving Away Free 'Pygmy' iPhone Audiobook Apps!

"Pygmy" audio book by Blackstone AudioYou might have noticed the past week that we have an awesome banner in our leaderboard position for an Pygmy iPhone audiobook app from Blackstone Audio.  Blackstone is revolutioning the way people can now listen to audiobooks on their iPhones.  They plan to release a number of Chuck's books as audiobook apps.

Anyway, to help promote the audiobook, Blackstone is letting us give away 10 ten promotional codes (free redemption) for the iPhone app.  But you'll have to be a follower on our Twitter page @chuckpalahniuk to play.   Yesterday, we picked our first two winners.  Today, the rules have changed.

Today's Homework Assignment: Take a photo (Twitpic, etc) of yourself "wearing" your favorite Chuck Palahniuk item, memorbilia or swag and Tweet it with the tag #PygmyApp.  We will then select the two best pics of the day and announce them tomorrow morning.  The winners will then receive a Direct Message on Twitter with their promo code as well as instructions on how to redeem it.

Just remember, don't email us your pics or post them here.  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.

Pygmy Debuts At #3 On The NY Times Best Seller List!

Chuck Palahniuk's "Pygmy" debuts at #3 on the NY Times Best Seller List!

Wow.  Chuck has hit a homerun with his latest novel "Pygmy".   It just debuted at #3 on The New York Times Best Seller List.  I think this might be an all-time high for a Palahniuk release.   (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

This is a big one, folks.  Chuck was interviewed for TIME Magazine while on the road for his U.S. 'Pygmy' Tour.  The picture above (which I think is one of the best I've ever seen of Chuck) was taken by Neilson Bernard for Getty.

Pygmy Tour: Check Out Pictures From The Events

Well, the U.S. leg of the 2009 'Pygmy' tour has ended.  Many of you were upset that Chuck was only able to do five cities this time around, not the least of which was Chuck himself.  But as you heard him mention in the recent KPBS interview, he lost his mother recently to cancer and spent a large potion of last year caring for her.  Also don't forget that he was coming off two tours in 2008.
