Who Wants a Boxing Monkey Patch?

Every last man, woman, and child, that’s who.

Joel Courtney wore one in the The Dragon’s Tooth book trailer. Cyrus Smith is wearing his on the book cover. And we’ve got more…

If you want an embroidered monkey patch of your own (while supplies last!), here’s whatcha gotta do.

1. Tweet a pic of yourself holding a copy of The Dragon’s Tooth or The Drowned Vault in any bookstore. [UPDATE: or post that photo on my facebook wall here. UPDATE#2: or better yet, post that photo on the new Ashtown Burials facebook wall here]

2. Include the hashtag, #ashtown

3. When contacted, provide your physical address.

4. When your patch arrives, attach its shiny, embroidered awesomeness to your book-bag, backpack, jacket, or jeans (etc.).

5. Wear with pride.

    What if I want one very much but don’t have Twitter, Facebook, or access to a bookstore?

    I think I might glue mine over the apple logo on my laptop…if only the light behind it would make it glow…

    Nook counts, and if I missed a tweet, tweet again!

    I am a librian and any student who has read your books have loved them. I can’t wait for my grandkids to be old enough to enjoy them.

    Thanks a bunch. Me and my boys love your books. Cyrus shows some holy abandon jumping onto the plane. Awesome!

    First of all, so far, The Drowned Vault is awesome! Once my copy came in the mail, I put my jacket with my Boxing Monkey Patch on, and read as much as I could until I got overwhelmed with awesomeness. Secondly: I wear the Monkey Patch with great pride.
    Thank you so much for your work.

    Are there any patches left? My brothers would love some! (Actually, they’ve been asking me if I can make them!)

    I just discovered Ashtown! I love it and am curious if the boxing monkey was from a real WWI source or not? I hope this will be made a movie as I think it has all the potential of being a box office smash.

    Another ‘just checking’…
    *Any monkey patches left or available again sometime??* My brother & I are compiling Ashtown costumes for Halloween this year, & a couple of monkey patches would sure add a ton to the look! 😉

    Any more Boxing Monkey patches available now/sometime soon??
    My brother & I are hoping to compile some Ashtown-looking costumes for Halloween this year, & a couple of Boxing Monkeys would be the perfect touch!
