Blog Tours and Book Giveaways

I’m going on a virtual book tour! If you’re wondering what that is, think of it as a book tour without the travel. Or bookstores. Or touring, really.

But what a virtual book tour does still have (hopefully) is a chance to engage with readers. I’ll be popping on to a bunch of great blogs with guest posts, interviews, and a few reviews of Orconomics. Better still, I’ll be answering questions in the comments or via social media as the tour goes on.

And another thing that a virtual book tour still has (definitely) is signed books. Specifically, you could win one of three signed copies of Orconomics, or even win a Kindle Paperwhite to read your new Orconomics eBook on.

Lightning Reviews: Farmers and Foul-mouthed Killers

There is a paradox in being an adult geek. On the one hand, the modern nerd is perpetually complaining about how little time there is in the day and how inordinately busy modern life has become—to the point of taking pride in the sheer quantity of responsibilities laid at one’s feet. Yet that same geek is also consistently able to find time to waste on popular media. I originally wanted to call this phenomenon the “time paradox,” but that particular phrase has more than enough meanings amongst my intended audience.

Whatever we call it, I am completely guilty of this geeky hypocrisy. I have been too busy—too busy, I say!—for consistent blogging, and yet I’ve had time to watch movies and play video games. But such is life in the throes of electronic addiction. I’d imagine, anyway. I don’t have a problem. I can quit whenever I want.

In the meantime, perhaps the best way to solve my blogging drought is by turning these diversions into a post. Specifically, I’m going to review them. But I’m going to keep the reviews really short. Because, as you may have heard, I don’t have time for blogging.
