Partnering with Scribd for Young Junius

Jeff Lund and his YJJeff Lund and his YJLongtime readers of this blog will remember when I spoke with Ransom Stephens about how he used Scribd to publicize his novel The God Patent

Well, now I've been lucky enough to partner with the good folks at Scribd.com to publicize YOUNG JUNIUS. All this week we're leading up to a rollout of the free PDF of the entire novel on the site. And things are popping off already!

We're serializing select chapters every day until then.

Monday saw the launch of Junius Gets the Nine - Seth Harwood (excerpt from YOUNG JUNIUS)

Today we posted Mourning Mother: Gail Ponds-Posey - Seth Harwood (excerpt from YOUNG JUNIUS)

and The Oracle: Marlene - Seth Harwood (excerpt from YOUNG JUNIUS)

So go on, head over to Scribd and Readcast these excerpts. You can choose to post them to your Facebook and Twitter accounts to really spread the word. Talk about what'd help? Thanks! (Readcasting explained here.)

If you want to know more about Scribd, follow them on Facebook or Twitter.

Excerpt from YOUNG JUNIUS reading in NYC

Watch the video below from last night's event at Otto Penzler's Mysterious Bookshop in NYC to hear me talk about Cambridge residents rich and poor, free coffee at the Coop, my new book, and get heckled by the 4 year old son of my cousin Aaron. Tanner is the tyke's name. Cheer him on!

And in more hot news, YOUNG JUNIUS is now available for Kindle--just $4.99!

YOUNG JUNIUS on This Week in Books

Mark Jeffrey made the mistake of letting me put my mug up on his video show This Week in Books the other night. You'll see the video of the book and lots of your reader photos, but the downside is you gotta see me all close up to the camera for about half of this.

Here's the link to the This Week In Books website.

Introducing YOUR Young Wednesday!!

Welcome to YOUR Young Wednesday!

As you all know, back on 10/18, Young Monday had to be postponed due to a lack of availability of YOUNG JUNIUS. Well, now it's widely out and available everywhere fine books are sold!! So let's green light this baby and rush it up the charts, buy some copies, and/or spread the good word to all we know!

The best way to help is to visit here often, send your friends over, Tweet about the book and post updates to your Facebook profile. For those less techy, there's very little as valuable as a good Amazon review, so please head here and write up a 5-star winner!

If you'd like to buy the book, which I hope you will (Big thanks to those who have already), you'll find a list of places online and local booksellers to get it on the left-hand side of this page. Whether you buy hardcover, paperback or support Amazon, B&N or your local favorite (find one on IndieBound if you don't have one) I'm just pleased that you and yours will have the book.

As always, you can get me to sign a copy if you buy it from one of these two stores close by my abode.

And that's all, folks, I'll be back Wednesday wherever you like to find me, marching on, pushing the needle, and shaking the foundation!

Thanks for your support!

PS: I'm coming to the East Coast!! I'll be in Cambridge, MA on 11/2, NYC on 11/3, and in Philly for Noircon on 11/4 and 11/5. More info here. Hope I'll see ya!

YOUNG MONDAY is here!

YJ-MontanaYJ-MontanaOk, soldiers, thanks much much for joining the ranks! Right now, YJ isn't available in stores or on Amazon so we have to wait a pinch.


You can pre-order the book now on Amazon or, what's better, is to visit/call/email your local bookstore and library to make sure they've got the book on order and are planning on getting it in.

I really appreciate your support! More soon from the general, et al.

2) ask your local library to stock it too!
