I just went over to see how my books were doing on Amazon, and I realized that I had just broken 100 five star reviews for Monster Hunter International. Sweet! That’s a milestone for something I guess. Well, it makes me geek out a little.
Speaking of geeking out, I’m being red-shirted in two upcoming books from other authors. In one I’m a fighter pilot who dies heroically, and in another, I’m the head thug for an evil mega corporation. (make the title for that guy “financial analyst” and it sounds suspiciously like my first job…)
I’m going to LibertyCon next week, and really looking forward to it. A whole bunch of Baen authors are going to be there, so it will be a good schmmozing opportunity. Plus, Terry Brooks is the guest of honor, and Sword of Shannara was one of the first fantasy books I’d ever read. So that is pretty darn cool.
I’ll have another Tom Stranger when I get back too. Ironically enough, this one takes place at a Con, and I’m giving myself the Clive Cussler treatment. Apparently there is one version of me in an alternative universe that has done really well for himself (the one that founded CorreiaTech and pioneered the deadly Combat Wombat) who has purchased Stranger & Stranger’s “Comprehensive” plan.
The Wombat: Inspiration for Terror.
And for your viewing enjoyment, the 100 greatest movie insults ever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSEYXWmEse8 Warning, to say that there is some language would be a massive understatement. And they get better as they go to. I was laughing my butt off by the end.
