My novel, MHI, is in Entertainment Weekly

Pick up a copy of Entertainment Weekly.  On Page 69 is the best-sellers chart.  Entertainment Weekly will contact one big independant bookstore and use their list.  Luckily for me, this week was Uncle Hugo’s Science Fiction & Fantasy mega-store.

#1  Outlaw Demon Wails –  Kim Harrison

#2 Snake Agent – Liz Williams

#3 Monster Hunter International – Larry Correia

#4 White Night – Jim Butcher

#5 Goblin War – Jim C. Hines

#6 Rollback – Robert J. Sawyer

#7 Night Life – Caitlin Kittredge

#8 Liaden Universe Companion – Sharon Lee & Steve Miller

#9 Into a Dark Realm – Raymond E. Feist

#10 Across the Face of the World – Russell Kirkpatrick

Not bad.  Not bad at all.  Keep in mind that this is a self-published work by a wannabe hack writer.  The only reason I’ve had ANY success at all has been because of you guys taking a chance on my book, and then telling your friends.  My contract has been sent, and soon I’ll be published by a real publisher.  Then we’ll see what we can do! 

Seriously, for all of you that had my back, thanks.  Now all we need to do is sell a bunch of the professional version so they’ll publish MHI:2 also. 

Looking at that list, holy crap, that’s some stiff competition.  I read Raymond E. Feist’s Riftwar Saga in Highschool!  Jim Butcher is like the man.  (hell, he’s got his own show on the  Sci-fi channel, how friggin’ cool do you have to be for that?) 

NOTE:  This is the Entertainment Weekly with Tina Fey on the cover.  When I picked up 3 copies from my local Barnes & Noble, the clerk looked at me kind of funny, but I just told her that I thought Tina Fey was remarkably hot for a liberal.  She just nodded and rang me up. 

As a bonus, don’t just buy it for Monster Hunter International, it does have an article on The Great One, Charlton Heston.  And anybody who questions the fact that Charlton Heston is The Great One, show them a copy of one the greatest movies ever made, BEN HUR, then scissor kick them in the throat for daring to question his awesomeness.

  2. Good company indeed, considering I know all of those authors (a couple of the personally), and including yours, I’ve read five of those books.

  3. No, thank YOU for writing such an excellent page-turner!

    My lady friend was very put out with you, because I was no company at all for the three days after I got MHI.

    I’ve loaned it to three friends, bought a copy for a nephew, and encouraged several others to buy it.

    Looking forward to more!

  4. He’s got his own crappy show on the Sci-fi channel. They turned Dresden into a smarmy womanizing asshole. And don’t even get me started on what they did to Bob

  5. “Now all we need to do is sell a bunch of the professional version so they’ll publish MHI:2 also.”

    To be truthful, this is why I’ve held off on buying the self-published version.

  6. Congratulations!

    I recieved MHI as a gift, so I’ll be purchasing several copies of the Big Damn Publisher version to redistribute as well.

  7. I haven’t had the time to watch “Ben-Hur” yet but I still wager that “The Omega Man” will be my favorite Heston film.

    “Build coffin’s. Their all you’ll need.”

  8. Raven, that’s too bad. I like the books, but don’t get to watch too much TV.

    Omega Man rocks.

  9. Uncle Hugo’s is a great store. I went there as much as I could when I lived in Minneapolis; too bad it’s next to a rough neighborhood.
