Was that subtle enough?
Larry Correia needs our help:
So please tell your friends.
That’s the favor. Word of mouth is the best advertising ever. If you guys like MHI and MHV tell your friends to go get Monster Hunter Alpha. (preferably on preorder or the week it comes out) MHA comes out on July 26th. If you’ve got a blog, and you want to plug me there, I will say nice things about you to your friends. Facebook, Twitter, bathroom graffiti, I don’t care. Share the love!
If you want autographed copies, here is where you go to get them. (I’m doing signed bookplate stickers this time, because I can’t afford to fly to Minnesota again, and it is too expensive to ship 10 cases of books to Utah, have me sign them, and then ship them again). If you want personalization, put that in your instructions. I’m flexible like that. (however, keep in mind there is only so much space, okay? Last time I had a few people ask me to write small novellas, and there is only so much space on a book plate!)
If you don’t care about my lightning-like signature or a lovingly handcrafted MH smiley face with horns (or is it a penguin, you decide), you can get it at most bookstores, every B&N, or Amazon.
In fact, you should just do yourself a favor and acquire the entire set so far if you do not have the first two:
Why? Because Correia has produced some of the best modern fantasy you are ever going to have the privilege of reading – where else are you going to find full-blooded Master Vampires being taken down by an accurately-described, fully-automatic, short-barreled Saiga shotgun shooting Dreidels of Doom? I mean, really!
In all seriousness, there seems to be some "gaming" involved in getting your titles to show up on the New York Times Bestsellers list, and the short-and-the-sweet of helping Larry out is "get your pre-orders in now" – he is hoping to max out the sales of Monster Hunter Alpha on its premier week, and I do not see any reason not to help him in this goal. (And if you want a personalized-signed copy, rather than just a signed one, you need to get your order in today!)
