Are You Ready for the HELLstalkers Experience?

See that funky looking code above?

Over the next several months you are going to be seeing a lot more of them on this website and in the various promotional materials we create to support HELLstalkers.  When you see them, you know some cool, new stuff is available with regard to the HELLstalkers experience!

What, exactly, is it, you ask?  It's called a Quick Response Code or QR code for short and it is a way of delivering content via a mobile network.  You see, most new generation smartphones come with a built-in QR Reader.  By taking a picture of the image through your cellphone's camera when the reader is running, you can have that content automatically delivered to your phone at the touch of a button.  It can link you to a new website.   It can send you a special text message.  It can deliver an  image or an mp3 file or...the possibilities are endless.

From time to time you'll see a QR code appear on this site.  Maybe it will be in a post like the one above.  Or embedded in an illustration.  Or on a banner.  Or a widget.  Or in a twitter message...you never know when one of these will pop up.  Each time they do, however, you can bet that there is something really cool on the other end.

Sometimes we'll be using them to deliver a special message directly to our fans, like information on appearances or special discounts on HELLstalker merchandise. Other times they'll contain exclusive content you can't get anywhere else - maybe background information on one of the characters or organizations that appear in the books, clues to what lies ahead in the story itself, or even audio and video files sent in from HELLstalker units around the world.

Get prepared now so you don't miss out on any of the cool stuff later!

If you don’t have a QR Reader on your phone, you can get one for the iPhone at http://www.apptism.com/apps/quickmark-lite.  QR Code readers for other types of phones can be found at http://www.mobile-barcodes.com/qr-code-software/

(If you are looking to test it out, the QR code above will take you to this website.  For now, at least...)
