Special Events Next Week

As you may recall, April 1st has been the slated release date for Imaginary Jesus.  I know some of you are waiting for April 1, so you can get it on April Fool's Day.  And some of you keep writing me over and over and asking, "Do you actually have a book coming out?  Is this an elaborate practical joke?"

Next week, in honor of the OFFICIAL release date of the book, there will be some special events:

1) A big, secret surprise related to the audio book.  I can't say more right now, but it's the sort of thing that will make you say, "Me likee." 

2) The mind-blowing unveiling of  It's going to be amazing.  With a capital ZING!  Be sure to drop by there and sign up for the Imaginary Friends newsletter, which will be sent out rarely.  It will be rare like gold.  Which is to say, so rare that it makes it worth more.

3) The beginning of a spectacular contest related to Imaginary Jesus.  I can't go into details about it yet or lawyers will leap out of the internet to tape my lips shut.  But it is cool.  So cool that I wish I could win it myself, but I am not allowed to enter the contest.  But perhaps "Mike Mattalatos" can enter.  Moowha-ha-haaa!

4) Maybe I will give away something.  Anybody want me to give away something?  What do you suggest?  I know someone who has the sweat pants of someone famous.  Or I could give away a copy of some book or something.  If you can think of one you would want.

Okay... APRIL FIRST.  Write it on your calendar.  But don't hold your breath because that is a long time to hold your breath.


  1. Anonymous9:53 AM

    You should give away a "Lunch with the Author..."

  2. Oh yes, I'd take a "Lunch with the author" please, if one can get someone from MN to OR and back. Else I could settle for a book. That would be great too!

  3. I am terrible at keeping surprises. I really want to tell you guys. But I have to wait for April 1st.

    But I will say that I eat lunch pretty much every day.

  4. Maybe you could mail a lunch to the winner

  5. I got my copy from Amazon over a week ago, but was in the middle of finishing a book, and then another book I requested came in at the library and I can't renew it since other people want it, so I'm reading it. Imaginary Jesus is next, really, I promise... :-)

  6. An iPad?!

    Loved the book, Matt! A powerful message - and funny at the same time!

    Blessings -
