Book Bomb, second run

Larry announces the Sad Puppies 3 Short Fiction Book Bomb:
Mark your calenders. We will be Book Bombing the short fiction categories this Wednesday.

The Novella Category Bomb was a huge success. Thousands of copies were moved. A week later and they’re still on their respective genres bestseller lists. So basically we made sure that these will be the most widely read items in their category.

Now we’re going to do the same thing for the short stories and novelettes. Sad Puppies is all about getting people to nominate based on what they like, as opposed to what they are supposed to like.
Now, there are some differences in the Rabid Puppies and Sad Puppies recommendations here, so what we're going to do in addition to fully supporting the Short Fiction Book Bomb is a) post links to the two Rabid Puppies stories by Steve Rzasa and John C. Wright so people can read them for free, and b) post a link to The Book of Feasts & Seasons which contains two Rabid Puppies recommendations, one for novelette and one for short story, so Book Bombers can bomb it if they wish to do so.

I'll even throw in a link to a free story that is neither on the Sad Puppies nor the Rabid Puppies list, but is one that some of you might enjoy reading if you haven't already read The Altar of Hate.

As before, if you've previously read the works, we encourage you to post reviews on Amazon.

If you have already bought and already reviewed, I suggest going through and selecting a few reviews as "helpful" to negate the auto-haters who downvote every positive review.

For anyone who hasn't read Altar of Hate, take advantage of this promotion. It is a great collection of short stories.

I suppose "12 o'clock high" is too late in the day to start a book bomb run, no matter how poetic the idea may be.

You guys read faster than me. Haven't finished 'City Beyond Time' yet. Guess I still have a couple days.

Vox My leige,

Book bombs are great, but When do we get to organize the Dread Ilk and associated tribes for a raid into Rabbit lands to pillage and burn?

That will be the Kickstarter. Give it two months....

But do they have anything that we want?

Earlier, Vox, I understand you were taking ideas for appropriate kickstarter incentive awards?

Brass tripods, golden cups, fair haired women of child-bearing age from the lands across the wine-dark sea, stores of grains and fabrics and unworked iron, rich meats, mead, and perhaps a longboat of one's own to command...

We Ilk are a simple folk.

OT, but interesting:

Rabbit fur looks pretty good in a coat. A woman in my church sells them.

Another? Well, whatever. I decided not to buy this time, or... just to buy. I have created a post and am encouraging my readership to buy too. Hey, I've got five readers, and they are almost as pissed at the way things are going as I am. Five is five, which might mean one will buy. But one plus one equals two, so shut it. I might just have doubled the pool of buyers, in my corner of things.
