Using a viral campaign to promote a book, in this case, The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson, is still pretty rare.

This very graphic and unsettling video is not for the squeamish. The Gargoyle is about a man who suffers unspeakable burns during a car wreck. The video describes, in detail, what would happen if you put your hand, and then your face, on a glowing stove burner, and then pulled it away.
