Begging for votes ...

If you've tuned into this blog the last week or so, then you know I've shamelessly been asking folks to head over to Book Spot Central and vote for my novel Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse. (I'm even getting a little sick of myself.) I was actually pretty surprised to win the first couple of rounds. But now I've run up against the novel Goblin War by Jim C. Hines. Hines must have some pretty loyal fans, because he's really piling up the votes, and I probably won't be able to catch him unless a miracle happens. Win or lose, I'm proud to say that I think Mr. Hines and I have put on a pretty good show and my book vs. his looks to be the biggest match of the tournament. (So far anyway.)

Having said that, I feel a very warm and fuzzy swelling of gratitude to the many folks who have voted for me. And hey, it's not over yet. I'd appreciate anyone's vote right now if you haven't voted yet. Go and vote now!

I'd like to thank all of you who've been voting for my novel Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse over at Book Spot Central's book vs. book smackdown tournament. But I'm currently getting my ass handed to me by a a book called Goblin War. Folks, get over there and vote. I know, I know. I'm getting tired of hearing myself ask it. But we've come to far to give up. GO VOTE!

Twitter me this, Batman

So I used to be on Twitter. Then I quit. I just couldn't imagine people wanted to get updates on what I was eating or watching on TV. So I bailed. Then some dude tricked me into going back. Now I'm a twit. Or is it twitterer? Huh. The point is that I need followers. Why? To conquer stuff, I guess. Something small at first. Maybe the Popeye's Chicken down the street. They are SO SLOW and ALWAYS get my order wrong. No gravy on the mashed potatoes, bastards!

Where was I? Ah.

So if you are a twitter person, or think you might like to be, then please consider following me on Twitter. Don't you want to know what I'm doing every second? Sure you do.
