Thanks Morons!

Thanks to all who bought both HBVK and SoM yesterday. For those who aren't aware, on the weekends the well-regarded blog Ace of Spades has lots of non-political threads for people to discuss gardening, cooking, guns, booze, all that kind of stuff. Oh, and books.

I've read the blog for a long time and really enjoy it. It hits that sweet spot of insightful commentary without being stuffy and easy to pin down. Great podcast, too. So the other day I saw their book thread and thought I'd give it a shot.

Not only did the thread proprietor give me some nice comments on SoM, he also took the time to see what else I'd written and promo'd HBVK as well! Which I hadn't mentioned at all because it's a bit old and frankly not as good as SoM. At least in my opinion.

Anyway, thanks again to all the morons that bought a book. My sales spiked to the largest I've seen since putting the book out. HBVK purchasers, if you think the formatting sucks, sorry about that. It was my first book doing it myself and frankly I wasn't as good at formatting as I am now. I'm actually almost finished putting out a new version with better formatting. Unfortunately Amazon wants you to buy the book again without me going through a lengthy review process -- FUCK THAT. That's why I'm not Amazon exclusive anymore.

So if you have a problem with the formatting, please let me know at jim@jimgavin.net and I will email you a new copy when it's ready.

Maybe I can actually do this marketing thing ...
