Elder Shunn sets Mormon history on fire
Every Monday through Friday, this week and next, I will be giving away one uncorrected advance reading copy of my new memoir, The Accidental Terrorist, to a lucky follower on Twitter. Here's how it will work:

  1. Follow @shunn on Twitter.
     
  2. At 9:00 am EDT each giveaway day, I will post a discussion question related to the book. Watch for it. (The question will be repeated two more times each day.)
     
  3. Tweet your answer to the question that day. Be sure to include the hashtag #AccidentalTerrorist. Yes, this will only leave 119 characters for your response, so be brief! (You do not need to reply directly to @shunn in your tweet.)
     
  4. Each day's giveaway ends that night at midnight EDT. Get your response in before then to qualify.
     
  5. The following morning, I will choose my favorite answer. I will DM the winner to arrange shipping the book.
     
  6. One book per user! If you've already won, you are not eligible to win again, though you can feel free to continue answering.
     
  7. Sorry, but United States residents only. Shipping books to other countries is expensive.
     

Have fun! And good luck!

@NewNameNoah with The Accidental Terrorist
Greetings, Accidental Army! It's been a busy couple of weeks here at Accidental HQ. I spent a full week signing, packing, and mailing nearly 200 copies of The Accidental Terrorist to those of you who pre-ordered it, and now I'm watching the USPS tracking info like a mother duck. About three quarters of the books have reached their destinations already. I expect the rest to get there in the next day or two.

Along the way, a wonderful little meme arose spontaneously, with recipients posting pictures of themselves with the freshly arrived book to Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. I love this. One of my favorites, from Twitter user @NewNameNoah, is pictured here. If you feel like joining in, please do. Use the hashtag #AccidentalTerrorist.

Now, a giveaway! Two giveaways, actually. First off, I'm giving away 10 uncorrected advance reading copies of The Accidental Terrorist on Goodreads. You must be a Goodreads member to participate, and 10 winners will be selected randomly from all those who enter.

    The Quiet American: a cocktail

    | No Comments
                

    A couple of weeks ago, my friend Jeff Lang sent me a link to Studio 360's listener cocktail challenge—create a cocktail inspired by and named after a classic work of literature.

    I wanted to give it a try, but I wasn't able to work on it before the August 12th deadline. Last night I had some spare time, though, so I cobbled together a drink I'm calling the Quiet American. I combined 1.5 oz. of Laird's Applejack, 0.75 oz. of Créole Shrubb liqueur, and 1.5 oz. of blood orange martini mix (blood orange, key lime and cane sugar), stirred with ice, and strained.

    The result was not bad—sweet and orange-y with a slightly bitter undertaste. It gets that name because of the distinctly American spirit (the applejack) getting all into the poor tropical country's business (in this case, Martinique). Of course, it was Vietnam in the novel, so my cocktail inhabits the entirely wrong part of the world, but hey, it was the best I could do.

    Laura thought it needed more of something tart, like lime juice or a twist. I'll keep meddling with it, like a good American.
