Your chance to be Tuckerized in The Scarlet Jaguar!


Three (or more) lucky readers will be Tuckerized in The Scarlet Jauguar!

As you probably already know, if you preorder The Scarlet Jaguar by June 30th your name will appear in the book on the acknowledgements page. One of the advantages of being a small press is we can do customer friendly things like this.

However, you now have an opportunity to have a character, or location, or business, or something else named after you in the story. One preorderer out of fifty will be selected. Right now that means three winners will get their name in this limited edition of only 200 signed copies (we print a few copies above the number preordered to sell at FarmerCon).

Here is how to enter:

1. If you have preordered the book, you are already entered in the contest.

2. To increase your odds of winning, go to Meteor House’s Facebook Page and like the post (you’ll figure out which one) and we’ll put your name in the hat a second time.

3. Share that post we’ll put your name in the hat FOUR more times.

The drawing will be held July 1st and the winners will be notified.

So what are you waiting for? Go preorder the book (if you haven’t already) and then like and share that post!


If your name happens to be Orion Queequeg Snuffleupagus, and you are one of the winners, there probably won’t be a character named “Orion Queequeg Snuffleupagus” in the story.

Instead Win might only use your first name, or perhaps have the characters get a drink at Queequeg’s Cantina, or refer to an officious government employee’s name tag which reads “Mr. Snuffleupagus,” or . . . well the possibilities are endless.
