People keep sending me copies of the Audible.com ad that features Redshirts in it, and I have to admit that I think it’s pretty damn cool that Audible using the book as an example of the genre in their advertising. Yes, it’s advertising Audible primarily, but it’s advertising me and my book as well, and every time the ad goes up somewhere, I get to be there too. For example:
Hey, you know how often a science fiction writer gets a big-ass billboard in New York City advertising his latest book? The answer is: Infrequently! At best! So thanks, Audible.com. You know how to make at least one of your writers feel all nice and shiny.
While we’re on the subject of Audible and Redshirts, hey, look! Redshirts was listed as one of Audible.com’s best science fiction works of 2012. Can’t complain about that, either.
