Help Still Wanted

Just a quick reminder that I have a bunch of (slightly irregular) trade paperback copies of THE LOST PLANET that I will be happy to give away to people who are willing to help us promote this book.

If you have a clever idea for how to promote this book, and the time, energy, and willingness to do so if you read it and find it worthy, drop me a line at and I will mail you a copy. Please include a few words about how you propose to promote it, as if we get more requests than we have books to give away, we’ll pick the most appealing ideas.

If on the other hand you'd prefer to get the book in e-book format, I can also do that. This won’t be an unrestricted free e-book giveaway. We’ve found that those are unproductive, in ways I will explain if anyone is interested. But if you’d prefer to have the book sent to your Kindle, we can do that.

On a purely personal note, I have read a lot of science fiction, and I think this one is Vogel’s best novel yet. In some respects it reminds me of Heinlein’s Citizen of the Galaxy, but most of all it reminds me of everything I loved about Andre Norton’s novels and stories when I was a kid. If you’re one of those people who sighs, “They just don’t write ‘em like that anymore” — well, actually, writers still do, it’s just that the Big Five publishers don’t publish ‘em anymore. BUT WE DO!

Help us get the message out. Email me your pitch this week. We’ll make our decisions and start mailing out copies on Saturday.


P.S. After talking to my shipping expert, I’ve learned that we can ship this book to Canada. Australia and the UK are still out of the question, though.
