Larry boosts LawDog

Larry Correia has announced a Book Bomb on LawDog's behalf:
Book Bomb time once again, and this is a really special one. I’ve known the Lawdog for about twenty years now. He was one of the original alpha readers for my first book because we were both moderators on the same gun forum. Ian is a great guy.

As a small town Texas cop he used to post these funny true life stories, and they were hilarious. Seriously, the guy has a gift. Some of these stories have become internet legend, like the amorous armadillo, the pink gorilla suit, and the shootout with Santa.

After nearly two decades of us bugging him, Lawdog has finally written a book!

It was another mutual friend, Peter Grant’s idea that I write a forward. I was happy to do so, because Lawdog is funny, talented, and has a way with words that can be making you laugh one minute, and punching you in the feels the next. I’m so glad he finally put together a book.
It's already risen from 742 to 424 on Amazon as a result. THE LAWDOG FILES is an excellent book that will appeal to pretty much anyone with a sense of humor, so with the help from Larry's fans, I won't be surprised to see it punch through to double digits.

380 now. 189. 137. 108. 104. 101. 92. 87.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #82 Paid in Kindle Store
#1 in Books > Biographies & Memoirs > True Crime
#1 in Books > Humor & Entertainment > Humor > Business & Professional
#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Biographies & Memoirs > True Crime

Thank you all! Larry adds a note:

To put this accomplishment into perspective, True Crime is a very competitive genre. The previous #1 is from a big deal author, who has been #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, the book has been reviewed in places like the NYT, USA Today, Time, and the Wall Street Journal, and it’s currently #19 on the very big deal Amazon Most Read List.

Good for Larry.

I bought a copy this morning - I'd never heard of LawDog before the CH release. Looks like a great read.

Larry says 'Git hur done'
Just got my copy. Looking to the thing...

Sounds like a fun book. I bought a copy and put up a plug on my own blog.

Blogger Beowulf the Geat July 17, 2017 1:59 PM  

Too many great recommendations for me not to buy it. Sold.

Waiting for the dead tree version.

Bought. Seems like not that long ago I used to struggle to find books to read, wading through the junk written by full savages and the like. So I wanted to say thanks to Vox and Larry and all the other great authors they've discovered. Now I can read books that don't devote the entire first chapter to the main character's sexual orientation, gender and species preference.

@6 Jason:

Damn. After a recommendation like that, I might start reading again!

Blogger PoseidonAwoke July 17, 2017 2:52 PM  

I just got the Kindle version. It looks like it would make a fun gift for a number of people I know, once there is a paper version.

An easy, fun read, totally entertaining from beginning to end.

Blogger SouthRon July 17, 2017 4:08 PM  

Heck of a lot more fun than the old Cops book that really got into the messed up lives of LEO's. The good, the bad, and the uh-gly! This one I'll pass along to my wife.

Anonymous Ilk#10,191 July 17, 2017 4:22 PM  

Got it. Next on my reading list once I finish Hitler in Hell. Go Castalia!

Anonymous Crew July 17, 2017 4:49 PM  

Now #137 ... another hour or so and it might crack 100.

Anonymous CarpeOro July 17, 2017 4:56 PM  

Added my review. The stories really had a feeling of being at a family gathering listening to my dad and uncles swapping stories about the old days. Also reminds me of some of the stories I heard at a police officer's retirement party. Good stuff. When it does come out on paper I'll be buying a copy for him.

There's a good tell-all book titled What Cops Know, from the '90s iirc. Lot of un-PC stuff; how queers are the most vicious killers, etc.

We'll have the paperback out quite soon.

This book has the "feel" of the best of Reader's Digest's joke pages.

And now #108.

Blogger Nate July 17, 2017 6:09 PM  

still holding tight at 108

Oh. my. goodness. what a book. I want a dead tree version.

Anonymous Susan() July 17, 2017 7:13 PM  

Sounds like this guy could be the inspiration for a great television show. Small town life has a great many characters and could be very entertaining to watch. The title alone sells the book. Who could resist that?

Anonymous Nathan July 17, 2017 7:15 PM  

104. Awesome.

Anonymous roo_ster July 17, 2017 7:22 PM  

Just bought it. I would like to see Lawdog a success. I read him way back on TFL and THR.

Anonymous Crew July 17, 2017 9:20 PM  

Yay, 101. It might just limp over the line! I will be watching tonight!

Blogger DavidRohm July 17, 2017 9:58 PM  

@1 David The Good

Just bought two of your books, kind sir. So glad we did... wife and I just started reading them last night (her one and me the other). Well written, humorous, and packed with practical ideas. Keep writing!

Castalia House rocks.

Anonymous CitizenOutkast July 17, 2017 10:19 PM  

Bought it to give it a shot. Will "advertise" it on another site I'm currently trying to red-pill.

#92 Paid in Kindle Store

Whoa. It blasted over the line with #92 now.

BOOM.

Creeping up the ranks. #87 as of 11:08 CDT.

Blogger beerme July 18, 2017 12:21 AM  

I'm not sure if I'm more impressed by the #87 overall or 63 reviews.

Bought and added to my TBR list. The sample brought tears to my eyes!

Jerry Clower used to draw a distinction between comedians who tell funny stories and humorists who tell stories funny. Lawdog joins Jerry amongst the few humorists this world has known.
