Redshirts ARC Giveaway at My Bradford Library Event This Saturday

Just a reminder to folks that this Saturday morning I’ll be doing an event at the Bradford Public Library, where I’ll be talking about the life of a writer, reading from some upcoming work and enjoying “Space Refreshments,” as they’ve described them (Tribble on a stick! Mmmmm.). The event is not just for Bradfordites; anyone can come by and say hello, so if you’re in somewhere near the area, why not show up?

To sweeten the deal, and to reward people who actually get up to be in Bradford at 10:30 am on a Saturday morning, I’m going to give away an Advance Reader’s Copy of Redshirts, my novel that will come out this June. We’ll put names in a hat or have a quiz or something to give it away. I’ll even sign it. Even if you don’t win that, I believe copies of the Fuzzy Nation paperback will be on hand for the signing.

So remember: This Saturday, starting at 10:30 am, Bradford Public Library. See you there.

Ask Papa Fuzzy Anything: Intro

Tomorrow (Tuesday, March 27) sees the Mass Market Paperback release of Fuzzy Nation in the US and Canada, and to celebrate, we thought we’d do something a little different. Perhaps this short video will explain:

That’s right, ask questions of Papa Fuzzy himself! How often do you get to ask questions to an alien? Not often! And how frequently does that alien respond with anything other than a particle beam to your center mass? Even less often! So now’s your chance, folks. You ask the questions, we’ll go through them, and Papa Fuzzy will start putting up videos answering the questions starting tomorrow and going through Friday.

What questions can you ask? Anything you like. You can ask him about the book, you can ask him about what it was like to work with me, you can ask him questions you’ve always wanted to know about aliens, you can ask him for the fuzzy alien perspective on current events, you may pose existential conundrums. He’s pretty much up for anything.

Go ahead and leave the questions in the comment thread, and we’ll get started on the answers tomorrow.
