Hmmm… maybe I should get linked by ultimate mega blogs more often?  Now all I need to do is go on Glenn Beck and I’ll know that I’ve made it.  Maybe my bishop can call his bishop and hook a brother up? Unless Glenn read my story, The Christmas Noun… uh oh. 

Seriously though, you guys are amazing. You’ve gone out and spread the word, shook the trees, cleaned out bookstores across the nation.  I think MHI has gone viral, and I owe it to the fans kicking butt and taking names.

In other news, my first signing is in Delta Utah on August 8th. I don’t know if anybody who reads MHN lives in Delta, but if you do, come by and say hi. I graduated Delta High in ’93.  Go Rabbits! This first signing is for my mom.

I’ll be on Gun Nuts Radio with Caleb and Breda on August 4th. They do a great show and I believe I’ve got them linked over in the links section, and if not, I know I’ve got Breda’s blog there.

 I’ll admit, when I heard that I’d been linked by Instapundit, all the hair on my arms stood up, and I got a little nauseous. Our Technology Manager found me wandering in the halls. He said I looked a little pale.  I called my wife and told her, and she said, “Like the one they talk about on the news, like Ann Coulter and Bill O’Reilly level stuff?” Yep. That’s the one.  “Well, I was just hoping you’d sell enough copies to cover the advance.”

The Grimnoir Chronicles: Hard Magic is getting revised as the comments from Reader Force Alpha come back. So far, so good.  I still need to do some more tweaking there. Then it is off to meld the two halves of Dead Six together. And then I’ve got a feeling that I’m going to have to go back and start working on MHI:2 The Rough Draftening to tighten it up. Somewhere in there, I’ve got several books to read from friends, one of which I’ve already started and really like, another that I read the rough draft a year ago and really liked, and the last one from a member of Reader Force Alpha.

It has been good that I’ve been so tangled up in writing, because everytime I stray from the computer to watch the news, it gives me a headace. I’m reminded that even though I’m a professional fantasy author, I can’t make this kind of crap up. Sure, I just got done writing a world of death rays, battle zeppelins, undead, magic, and teleporting ninjas, but the whole healthcare thing is just way too far fetched.  Come on, I couldn’t sell an editor on the idea that the government is going to take something over and make it cheaper and more efficient, let alone the country.

EDIT: because I just jumped another 200 places in the last hour.  If you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go have a moment to freak out.

EDIT 2: Because it just dropped another 100.

EDIT 3: Dropped some more. Brain exploded. Got all over monitor.

MHI just got linked on Instapundit

Okay, correct me if I’m wrong, but according to that blog ecosystem thingy, I’m like an insect, and Mad Ogre or Lawdog or Preacherman are like mammals, then I’m pretty sure pajamasmedia is like friggin’ Galactus or something. 

So where will MHI end up next? FOX news? Holy crap.
