    This is the project I've been nattering on about for the past year, and it's finally available for you to read. My writing partner Aaron and myself worked our asses off on this, and I hope the book reflects that.

    The price is $2.99US, or, if you have Amazon Prime, it's available to borrow for free, and it's also available from Amazon in the UK and Europe.

    Should you read it, and if you enjoy it, I'd certainly appreciate it if you'd help spread the word--we're going to live or die on word of mouth, and every little bit helps.

    I'm very excited about this. I'm also assailed by the terror shits.

    A foreword by our own Bram E. Gieben! (sorry I didn't mention it, mate--I've had the terror shits all morning)

    Thank you! Definitely let me know what you think.

    The reception has exceeded my expectations--74 copies sold so far. It's emboldened me to throw some more shit up there; maybe collect my Weaponizer serials into full-on novels, or bundle them as twofer novellas.

    I'm torn between Joy Puke and Terror Shit and I fucking LOVE IT

    Re. Weaponizer serials - we have plans in that regard, the Weaponizer Kindle line is next on my agenda once the mag launches in April :)

    EDIT: also congrats on the sales, well deserved :)

    Fauxhammer -- If you do decide to put more up on Amazon and want some help formatting it for the Kindle, let me know. I'm always willing to offer my services for a low, low price of Free.

    @WS: I may take you up on that--if anything, I might ask for help on learning to do it myself. I can format things to epub and mobi just fine, but page breaks and tables of contents are beyond my ken.

    Actually, @WarpedSavant: would you mind if I threw you an email? I do have some questions on how to pretty up the thing; I'm going to be going back over with a fine-toothed comb, and it'd be better if I knew how to do the formatting myself.

    @FauxHammer - Go for it, e-mail away. Would you mind adding the thingie as an attachment so that it's easier to describe what to do?

    Bought. Will commence reading tonight or tomorrow.

    Cheers Faux. Purchased. I'll be reading in a few minutes, and I have to say how much I am looking forward to it.

    Been ogling this on amazon, alas I went the Nook route. Not sure what the technical and business side of the ebook industry are like, but is there any chance of seeing it on the B&N store?

    We're certainly open to it, but we've got an exclusivity arrangement with Amazon until June.

    If I may be so bold, there are Kindle apps for everything with a circuit board--could one of those do the trick?

    @J.Brennan If you have a Nook, you can root it, and put the Android Kindle app on it. I personally wish more indie publishers/authors would use Smashwords, since they format it in all epub type formats for you.
    As for the book itself, I finished it last week, and I give it 2 thumbs up. Very nice!

    Thank you, brother!

    We're thinking about Smashword once the exclusivity period is up in June.
