With the imminent launch of the latest book in L. Jagi Lamplighter’s excellent Books of Unexpected Enlightenment series coming up on November 21st, it is time to reveal a little something I put together, an upgraded version of an old promotional video the book used to have. I will be at the launch party on Tuesday, where an all-original promo video I made (including a vocal performance from myself in collaboration with Sarah Koolbeck) will be unveiled, so look forward to that and take this opportunity to introduce yourself to this wonderful series.

Nobility Among Us in the August CLFA Book Bomb!

CLFA_BookBomb_graphic

The Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance is running another book bomb for twenty books today and tomorrow (22nd and 23rd July 2016). Nobility Among Us is on the list, as well as the second of L.J. Lamplighter’s excellent Rachel Griffin series.

A book bomb works by lots of people going on amazon and buying the same book on the same day, which boost’s the book’s rankings in amazon’s algorithms and makes it more visible to potential new readers. The author also gets paid for his work, as it should be. If you already have one of these books, please leave a review on Amazon (even if you don’t have much to say or someone else has already said similar things), as that also helps to boost that book’s visibility in amazon’s recommendations algorithm. If you’ve already done both of those, please tell your friends about this event in any way you can, on your blog, on twitter or facebook or any online community you are part of. (Please do that even if you haven’t bought it yet, spread the word as widely as possible!)
