Doing our part to put the Veronica Mars movie in space

By March 14th, 2013 125 Comments

We’re, um, really excited about the Veronica Mars movie getting fully funded on Kickstarter. Like, really excited.

To celebrate, we’re giving away 2 paperback copies of our Veronica Mars anthology Neptune Noir, with terrific introduction from Rob Thomas on how Veronica Mars saved his soul (direct quote!). To enter, just leave us a comment on this post–say, with your favorite Veronica Mars quote–by midnight Central time this Sunday (Book giveaway ended! But read on.)

But we also wanted to do a little bit more. And so, starting today, until the end of this month, we’ll contribute 25% of the price for every e-book copy of Neptune Noir sold to the Veronica Mars movie cause.

For Amazon for Kindle and B&N for Nook, where the list price is $3.99, that means almost $1 per e-book.

Even better news? Amazon has the e-book discounted right now for only $1.99 (but we’ll still be donating the full almost-dollar).

So, yes, we’re already getting a movie (and I’ll be looking forward to my poster, t-shirt, and DVD come next year)–but who can resist the opportunity to, as Jason Dohring suggests in the Kickstarter, have Logan smolder in space?

UPDATE:

We’ve had a blast revisiting some of our favorite Veronica Mars moments with your quote choices, and now it’s time to announce our two winners. Congratulations to . . . Vanessa and Lindsey! We’ll be in touch via email regarding your prizes. Thank you to everyone who entered!

UPDATE #2:

Thanks to you guys, we were able to contribute another $485 to the movie cause:

(Donated right under the wire! Publishing industry fun fact: Just because your e-book purchase is instantaneous doesn’t mean we get those sales numbers much faster than we do for print books.)

Happy reading, everybody who downloaded! Can’t wait to watch the movie with you all next year . . . and give away the giveaway-able parts of that reward.

    And then there’s one where Veronica comes over Logan’s with dim sum in hand. It went along these lines: “We can have dim sum, and then some.”

    From Season 1 of Veronica Mars, I find the line, “Am I asking you to retrieve a nuclear warhead? No.” Which she said to Wallace to be one of the best lines. Though I also love one of Wallace’s line to Veronica, “Yeah, and I want a statue of myself in the main lobby, holding a musket, staring down danger.” Hilarious. Veronica Mars is one of the best tv shows ever.
