Free Sheep, Cheap Sheep, and Why I’m Not Sleeping

Black Sheep logoI have not had any coffee today.

The longer I stare at my computer screen, the twitchier I get.

But I had to send out an update and do promise that tomorrow, there will be less about me and more about something that’s been pissing me off with the general landscape of business these days. Perhaps a super crappy customer service incident. But anywhoo.

Today is the official release date for The Power of Unpopular. That means you can buy it everywhere.

<insert dancing girls and pom poms, crazy hypothetical piles of cocaine, and a shitty Charlie Sheen joke>

That also means the website for the book went live this morning. You can check it out here.

I wrote a nifty blog to help people navigate the website. It’s really not that hard, but it has some cool features (like a fully-interactive forum where readers can talk to other readers, the ability to order a signed copy — oh, so vain — and some hefty gratitude to those who made the book happen).

And as far as free sheep go, you can download a FREE teaser of the book so you can see how the wool looks on ya before you buy it. That’s on the home page of the book’s website.

Speaking of gratitude, that’s YOU.

In my sleep deprived state, I do not wish for a cocktail. I’m not craving coffee. I’m just pretty fucking thankful — and that’s for you. So thanks for reading my shit, subscribing, letting me into your inbox (insert random innuendo), and sticking around. You rock harder than a 30-year-old David Lee Roth. More than Keith Richards before the Rolling Stones 3rd album.

Lots.

Oh, and don’t say I never gave you anything — here’s your key to sheep on the cheap. Amazon local deals has a deal today where you can score a $10 Amazon gift card for $5. So if you were thinking about picking up my book on Kindle, that means you can get it for the cost of the gift card. If you wanted to order a hard copy, you score it for just over $11 after the gift card cost. And if you weren’t going to buy the damn book at all, you now have a cheap ass $10 to spend on something for your self that’s reaaaaaaal niiiiiiiiize. TODAY ONLY!

Get the Amazon deal here.

And tonight, I am celebrating my book launch in the company of Captain James T. Kirk. You’re jealous — admit it. And yes, I am THAT big of a nerd.

Love and Hedgehogs,

Erika — YOUR loyal subject

Don't know you from Jacqueline but I feel so happy for you and your accomplishment. Benson  and Hedges said it just right, "You've come a long way baby". Only you know how far. And you've earned every iota of envy,  loyalty, and admiration.

In the company of the captain is a great place to be. Congrats on your launch and best wishes for infinity and beyond.

When you have provided security for Captain Kirk dressed as a Klingon Admiral, then you can say you are THAT big of  a nerd.  Congrats on the book release, Red. Looking forward to even bigger and better things for you.

Grrrr. UPS sent my copy to Santa Maria (which is half a state away from me). But they promise my copy will be here tomorrow. Way to be unpopular, UPS.
