Goodreads is giving away 3 paperback copies of THRUSTS OF JUSTICE, so if you haven't grabbed yours from Amazon yet (although you might want to jump on that while they've still got it 33% off, since who knows how long that will last), you can enter to win a copy here! (and also TOTALLY enter to win "We Bought a Zoo" while you're over there)
The amazon bomb yesterday was a smashing success (an exploding success? There must be some kind of "bomb" pun I can throw in there). Thrusts of Justice peaked at the top of Amazon's bestsellers list in the "superheroes" category, and still sits atop the list of "hot new releases" there. I just wanted to thank everyone who picked up a copy, and who helped spread the word through facebook, twitter and the like. I'm basking in the warn glow of your awesomeness.
The second Chooseomatic Book, Thrusts of Justice, is available from Amazon now. We’re asking everyone who wants a copy to buy the book on the same day.
Why does it matter if everyone buys on the same day?
Three words: Amazon sales rank. Amazon has the most relentless automated marketing machine on the planet, and the higher my sales rank spikes, the more likely Thrusts of Justice will show up in custom recommendations. Which generates more sales, which generates more visibility... it’s the self-perpetuating circle of capitalism, and we’re trying to make it work for the little guy.
How can I help?
Buy the book from Amazon, either in trade paperback or for Kindle, today! And spread the word about the Amazon Bomb through your social networks, blog, etc. Help an independent author become a bestseller!

I've finally recovered enough from the 4-day geekstravaganza that was Norwescon 35 to post about it. Any of you who saw me there can vouch for how much fun I had, since I pretty much walked around the whole time with a big, stupid grin on my face. Norwescon is nominally a science fiction convention, but one of the things I love about it is how wide-open it is in terms of programming and community.
This post is ONE HUNDRED MILES LONG, so to see it you're gonna have to click "read more."
So, you remember how I said a couple of days ago that Thusts of Justice would make its world debut at Norwescon this weekend? And then made kind of a big deal about it? Turns out my statements were not intended to be fact-based.
Here it is, Thursday, and as far as I can tell the books have still not shipped. I'm doing my best to have them ship directly to the hotel so I can start selling them on Saturday, but from the level of communication I've received from the printer so far, I'm not holding my breath.
Maybe this means that everyone who hoped to get a copy will show up for my reading? But not with torches? Come find out!
