So I joined Facebook…

People have been bugging me to join up for awhile. I’ve gotten a bunch of invites, and today Bogie posted on this blog about it, telling me that if I’m trying to spread the word about the upcoming release of my book, I’m missing the boat by not being on Facebook.

I’ve kind of put it off, because I’m not really the social networking kind of guy. I’m more of a hermit in a compound surrounded by barb-wire and claymores type… well, not really that bad, but I am all about selling lots of books. I’m a capitalist like that.

Lo and behold, there is already an MHI group! http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000028145065&ref=name#/group.php?gid=99503651773&ref=mf Hunters Unite!

Okay, that was a little mind blowing. I’m still not entirely used to the idea of having fans, though it is pretty awesome.

Dad?

Courtesty of Miguel, after I posted that I looked like James Gandolfini:

Larry Gandolfini?

I’m just sayin’ is all…

I’ll have to take another picture, where I’ve got no glasses, no rifle, have a cigarette, and look like I’m about to beat you to collect protection money.

Great list of books that are releasing the same month as MHI

They put some serious work into that.

And as a nerd, I must admit that I clicked on every single Amazon link, just to see how I was ranking compared to the others. There were only five that were ahead of me, and one of those was Dean Koontz. So I’ll call that a win.  There are some interesting ones on there, and it is just a bummer that when you become a writer, it kills most of your reading time. If I’m reading, I feel like I should be writing. Though I’m currently reading George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones. (just as amazing as everyone has said it is). I just finished Paul Gennesse’s Dragon Hunters (2nd book of great series) and DanWells’ I Am Not A Serial Killer (awesome first novel). Plus I’ve got two history books on Black Jack Pershing, but that’s business.

Amazon sales rankings are odd though, they do it by the hour, so in one day, I can swing 100,000 places back and forth, so you never really know. Plus I still have no idea how many of the Baen books have been sold so far. So I feel like I’m doing okay…
