I updated the Uprising Page. New information there, and a possible new cover for Uprising UK. I noticed that the big book sellers had a pricing war going on, Amazon had it for one price, then B&N had it for a lower price, so Amazon dropped it… now it’s only 12.20 from either company. E-book prices are lower still of course.
Books for me to Autograph are in route and should be here soon for me to sign in blood… or just Red Ink… then I’ll ship them all back to the publisher for distribution.
I’ve been asked about Book Signings at the stores like Larry does. Guys, Larry’s a freaking Author/Rockstar. Not only do guys line up to get their books inked by the man, other Authors are begging him to Tag Team with him. Larry walks the Earth with Large Strides. Deservedly so. He’s earned those Kudos the hard way. Me? I’m no “Larry Freaking Correia”. Honestly, I don’t want the attention. I tell you what… If you see me at the Range, and you want me to ink your book… I’d be happy to do so. But don’t act like Larry’s fans… Girls pulling off their small clothes and throwing them at Larry… Guys pulling out their armor plates throwing them at Larry… No… Don’t do that. Uprising is no great work of literature, it’s just a lark. Now if you want to give me Ammo… by all means.
However I am putting much more effort into UK and it’s going to be a much better book on all counts. As jazzed as I am for Uprising USA to be out there and people reading it and enjoying it for what it is – Awesome – I’m all the more jazzed for Uprising UK.
I’m thinking of a Marlin 1895 “Trapper”, much like this one:
However, I’d like it with a blued barrel and magazine tube, stainless receiver, and walnut stocks. The peep sights from Wild West Guns in Alaska, and a Big Loop.
Hmmm… Perhaps – also – maybe 336 version in .30-30 Win.
