Goodreads is awesome

Goodreads is amazing. I just started participating in its author program last weekend, because I wanted to set up a book giveaway for Brambleman. With some help from customers service–yes, Goodreads has it and I give it high marks–I was able to accomplish this task. (By the way, I’m interested in setting up other book giveaways, too.) As of this morning, three days after the title was set up, more than 120 people have signed up for the giveaway (feel free to join the crowd), 9 people already plan to read it, and it’s gotten its first review (4 stars).  Right now, Brambleman is only available as an eBook, but I should get printer’s proofs from Amazon and Ingram’s Lightning Source today (I…

NCAA “Green Card” chanters punished

Update: Five University of Southern Mississippi pep band members have been punished. They were indeed stripped of their kazoos and ordered into a geography class, or something like that. * * * I had seeded Southern Mississippi 56th out of 68 NCAA tournament teams in my SAT score brackets, but after Friday’s game, I’m considering moving the school to the bottom of my list due to the behavior of its pep band members, whose xenophobia and ethnic prejudice are only matched by their ignorance of geography. During Southern Mississippi’s opening round contest with Kansas State, Golden Eagles pep band members broke out chanting, “Where’s your green card”  at Kansas State guard Angel Rodriguez as he shot a free throw. The Jayhawks’ Rodriguez…
