A Thank-You Note

This has been an exciting month for me, what with the launch of The Last Falangist and all, and I would like to thank everyone who read Stacy’s excellent review and plunked down their $1.99. Forty of you did so, and another couple of folks borrowed it, some of you even posted glowing reviews on Amazon, and I am very grateful to all of you.

I am also, of course, grateful to everyone who bought stuff through my Amazon links here on the site. It’s interesting to look at the monthly report and see what people like to shop for. Most of what people buy from my links are e-books; I guess that’s not too surprising since they’re relatively inexpensive and provide instant gratification. Top seller this month (so far) is Andy Weir’s The Martian with ten copies, followed by Sarah Hoyt’s short story The Price of Gold (seven copies) and her novelette The Big Ship and the Wise Old Owl tied with Christopher Nuttall’s The Trafalgar Gambit at three copies apiece. People also seem to like Tom Kratman; his new The Rods and the Axe sold a few copies, and someone picked up its predecessor Come and Take Them as well.

Apparently I’m not the only one who likes protein bars around here; someone ordered a box of LARABAR Alt Bar, Cinnamon Apple Crisp and some other Larabar products as well, and we also moved a box of Odwalla Super Protein 2-Ounce Bar. Good eats at a good price!

Major thanks to whoever ordered New MTN Gearsmith Heavy Duty Adjustable Cast Iron Chrome Weight Dumbbell Set. It is so metal, and no doubt will do your body good. Also on the fitness front, an Adidas Flat Bench. Quite the bargain!

Finally, I can’t thank Stacy McCain enough for giving me the opportunity to mongle links and make the occasional semi-coherent post here. The man is a public benefactor, taking in strange crypto-Jewish marsupial sorts and giving them a place to blog, to say nothing of doing an outstanding job pimping my book. He is truly the last champion of Conservative Gonzo Shoe Leather Journalism loose in the land, and you should definitely HIT THE FREAKING TIP JAR!

    Next June. I’ll still be blogging here, unless Stacy can find someone to do so for less gruel, of course. Because CAPITALISM! 🙂

    Where would he find someone to work as cheaply as you do? It’s not like Stacy’s door is being pounded upon by starving Wombats begging just a stale crust of bread.

    You spoiled Stacy. I don’t think even a union could save you. Not that one ever could….

    9/11 is good, but I was thinking Columbus Day weekend – assuming we have enough interest to nail a place down before then.

    I am in fact planning on driving through Texas and visiting friends in Austin and Houston, not necessarily in that order.

    If you’re going through Austin you’re gonna be in “Texas driving range” of us. Drop me an E and we’ll talk routes and schedules.
