Offering a free digital copy of movies and comic books to fans who buy a physical DVD, Blu-ray or comic book is a pretty common practice -- but it hasn't really caught on yet in the world of prose publishing.
Well, HarperCollins is catching on, a bit, and is offering such a deal on Heart-Shaped Box by Locke & Key writer Joe Hill.
Hill asked fans to retweet a message he put out there with the details, which you can see below courtesy the website linked above. The app needed to get your free copy can be downloaded here (Android or iPhone).
