Jack Ketchum Offering Marked-Up Original Manuscript Of New Novel

Click here for more details.

Here's the teaser on the book from Amazon: 

Now I'm way beyond confusion.

Now I'm scared.

I've slid down the rabbit-hole and what's down there is dark and serious. This is not play-acting or some waking bad dream she's having. She's changed, somehow overnight. I don't know how I know this but I sense it as surely as I sense my own skin. This is not Sam, my Sam, wholly sane and firmly balanced. Capable of tying off an artery as neatly as you'd thread a belt through the loops of your jeans.

And now I'm shivering too.

In some fundamental way she's changed...

Creepy. Go get yourself some, folks.

Oh, God.  That would be a great teaching tool.  I would buy a digital copy of the marked-up book in a heartbeat.

Kind of a horrible cover. But that's a great prize... and a nice bonus for anyone already planning to nab a copy.

But yeah, I'm with Bryan. That would be an awesome teaching tool. The more I think on it, the more I wonder why authors don't sell those to aspiring writers. We already know and love their work, so to see how it went from bad or mediocre to awesome would be really cool.
