They say it is good to have goals. Mine is fairly modest actually. I would like to sell 50 downloads of the Salvation e-book by Christmas. This will be more than enough to qualify it for a paperback printing (by my best calculation, I’m on contractually obligated to sell about 40 more). I’m asking all my friends and “fans” to please help spread the word about it.
One thing you can do is become by fan on Facebook. You can do that by going to this page and clicking the “Become a Fan” link. Your Facebook updates will show that you became a fan, thus dissiminating my fame far and wide through the internets. I’ll also be able to send you updates directly, but I promise that I won’t do this very much.
On a similar note, you can join the Facebook group M. David Hornbuckle Knows Wordz Good. Both Fabebook pages serve virtually the same purpose as far as you are concerned. For me, there are technical pros and cons for each one, and that is why I set both of them up.
And of course, if you haven’t already done so, you can buy the damn book. You could even send a message out to a few people you know and say, “Hey, this guy who I (went to high school with/was in a band with/slept with years ago) has written a book, and he could really use your support. Please buy a copy,” and include that link, so they know where to go. That would be awesome and totally unexpected on my part.
