I got to thinking about my request that everyone buy one or more copies of my books on my birthday—to give to their friends, read themselves, or just make me happy. I think it’s important for you to know: There are plenty. It’s print on demand for hard copy, and I don’t think there’s ever been a worldwide shortage of e-book versions.
So all these rumors I’ve been hearing about riots in Argentina and Germany—you people just calm right down. Amazon had never exploded over just one writer’s birthday. Now, you’ve got less than half an hour, so … GO!
(No, I don’t expect a run on orders from my internet friends, especially since most have probably already read me if they’re going to. But why not have fun with it?)
