Don't beat 'em over the head. Just tell the damned story.

I'm reading a science fiction trilogy right now which has begun to annoy me. It has a great plot and an interesting protagonist, but the story itself is told via a litany of social justice issues. It's as if the author had a list while she was writing and went down it, item by item, until she had thoroughly covered them all. I could play a drinking game to this series - "Drink a shot every time the author beats you over the head with her ideology," - but I'd end up in the hospital with alcohol poisoning.

The Longest Road in the Universe is now available for pre-order.

The Longest Road in the Universe is now available for pre-order in most digital formats.

Why are pre-orders important to writers?

Because on release day, they're all processed at once as if they were placed on that day, which can offer a nice boost in sales ranking, especially on Amazon. This boost can increase the book's visibility to other new readers, which can further increase sales.

So if you're planning on buying the The Longest Road in the Universe anyway, would you consider pre-ordering it? Thanks!

Here's where you can do that:

For Kindle: https://goo.gl/lY6Qld
For iBook: https://goo.gl/dlQCXH
For Kobo: https://goo.gl/hgpR5L
For Nook: https://goo.gl/ITFdly

The print edition is still in process, but as soon as it's available for pre-order, I'll post the link here.

In other news, I'm still working on those review copies, but they'll be in your inboxes soon, reviewers.

Alex Bledsoe says kind things about The Longest Road in the Universe.

I've been posting these to social media, but I thought I ought to be sharing them on my blog as well. So here's the third of five posts about the kind things my fellow authors have said of The Longest Road in the Universe. This one comes from Alex Bledsoe, who writes:

Random Quote

In an earlier stage of our development most human groups held to a tribal ethic. Members of the tribe were protected, but people of other tribes could be robbed or killed as one pleased. Gradually the circle of protection expanded, but as recently as 150 years ago we did not include blacks. So African human beings could be captured, shipped to America and sold. In Australia white settlers regarded Aborigines as a pest and hunted them down, much as kangaroos are hunted down today.
