Once more unto the Twittersphere

Another busy week and not much to add on the writing front, but I decided to take another swing at getting The Final Fall of Man some attention, since I went to the trouble of writing it and all. It looks to be slowly slipping off the Amazon lists, and that’s no good.

I may try another give-away, although all that seems to earn me is negative reviews. No more giving away stuff to ingrates.

So, I’m tweeting up a bit of a storm, both on the book-plugging front (there seems to be at least a bit of a correspondence between tweeting and Amazon attention) and some fresh stuff to make Edpool’s account more than just a dull series of book links and random author-related retweets.

I hope these are visible or at least expandable, let me know if they’re not. WordPress seems to have two settings for images: postage-stamp and surface-area-of-the-entire-observable-universe. I manually dragged these to a uniform width of 450, so that should be a bit of a medium.

I like to think I’m tapping into a fast-growing market here.

I usually only plug Eejit and Human, so I changed it up a bit for a while.

It’s a question that needs an answer, I think. And yet at the same time is quite difficult to answer, because of the way I phrased it. You’re just going to have to read the book.

I decided I’m going to take my publications in a Marvel direction, and divide the reveal of the expanded urverse into Phases. The Final Fall of Man, Tales of the Final Fall of Man (Anthology 1) and Are You My Corpulent Brood Matriarch? can be considered Phase 1. Oræl Rides to War is the start of Phase 2.

I wish Twitter did the link images a bit bigger, they really don’t do justice to my amazing covers.

I also did a bit of Brandon-bothering. And of course I can never pass up an opportunity to show off my signed copy of The Way of Kings, with Sanderson’s special dedication and acknowledgement of my years of work on the Robert Jordan Usenet group.

He never answered me last time, let’s see if he can be bothered this time. Lazy bugger.

And here’s a couple of classics to finish off with.

Seriously though, I hope they get on with it. And there’s a whole new blog post waiting to be written about my opinion of the British EU representative pushing for continued free travel and the right to vote in European elections post-brexit. FUCKING SERIOUSLY WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK, GET THE FUCK OUT YOU GIANT BRAINDAMAGED CUNTS.

Every damn time.

That’s it for Thursday, stay tuned for another exciting blog post tomorrow!

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/
