Nick is indeed a good man to have in one's corner.
Derek, I'd be interested to find out if you attribute any immediate sales to Nick's blog. He listed Bloated Goat on there earlier this month, but it was difficult for me to attribute any sales to it.
Manley, Spalding's Racket mentioned my book on Friday. On Saturday, I equaled my all-time record for novel sales = 9 sales of Dead Dwarves Don't Dance! Nick has almost 100 followers, so I have to attibute some of those 9 sales to him.
