An old housemate of mine wrote a book.
It sounds stellar. By all accounts, he's an amazing writer. Ergo, you probably need this.
Here's his announcement:
"Hi everyone: I have some exciting news!! - and a favor to ask:
As you probably know, my novel The Paper Man, which I've been working on for the past 5 years, has been picked up by this really fantastic indie publisher Unnamed Press. They have a really great list of books and I'm so excited to be a part of their upcoming catalog. The Paper Man won't be out until May 2015, but it is available for preorder now online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell's, and elsewhere. I'm so excited to see this book become a real thing in the world!
I'd be forever grateful if you could let your family and friends know about the book, and perhaps encourage them to place an order if they're readers. By ordering now, my publisher says it will help and motivate the larger sales team, and can create buzz for larger orders at big national accounts ahead of its official release in 2015.
In the coming week or so, Unnamed Press will be announcing the spring catalog, including messages on Twitter and several posts on Facebook. If you could share those post with others, or forward this e-mail message, or make your own, any of those would be so awesome! And please know that I really appreciate all the help and will keep requests like this to a minimum."
The book can be preordered at any of these links:
