Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Well, much like peak Pokemon Go, peak Fascination appears to have come and gone.
And to be honest, it was expected.
The next phase — now that just about all the people I know have already bought the book — is for those early readers to start spreadin’ the news, as Old Blue Eyes would say. And that doesn’t mean retweet a tweet or slap a like on Facebook. It means telling someone else about Fascination and encouraging them to buy it.
It’s true. Nobody who’s a stranger to me has bought the book yet.
I’m hoping for more reviews — like Audrey Driscoll’s — and more blog discussion of #guerrillapublishing and its potential. More interviews like Mark Paxson’s. But above all I’m hoping you’ll first read and enjoy Fascination and then literally tell someone about it. On the phone. In an email. Heck, in person at lunch or walking the dog. “Say, I just read this remarkable book, and the thing is — you can’t get it at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. The only way to get it is to buy it directly from the author!”
And don’t forget to add that each copy is signed and inscribed to the buyer.
And that it’s packed with HD color photos.
And that if you pay more than $5.99 for it, you get to be in the Fascination Hall of Fame!
Remember: this is our brand of samizdat. We’re disseminating banned literature. (Or de facto banned literature, when you stop to think about it.) We have to get it into the hands of the people who need it!
