When I mention Roy's quest to 1000 followers I will count both Twitter followers and blogger followers. I am thank flexible (i.e. desperate.) The more "we" get the more books I will give out.
Times are tight right now, I know a lot of people who have been "downsized" or "laid off". Being a freelancer I can't technically get laid off but people can cut back on their book buying and entertainment spending. Therefore I need to do more than ever to keep interest up.
Working Daze will be reflecting the tighter economy soon. Hmmm....
I just hope the country is on the road to recovery. I think it is. But then again I write cartoons and funny sci fi books for a living.
