TODAY'S NEWS: Do you like seeing what books people are reading? Perhaps you give others a knowing smile when they're reading a particular favorite of yours. Or you merely enjoy make snap judgments about your fellow riders of mass transit based on their reading choices. With more and more people switching to ebook readers, that silent communication could be lost, unless we do something about it. As my award-winning writer friend Mary Robinette Kowal recently suggested, ebooks should have clear sleeves on the back, and publishers could provide cover flats to insert in them. I think this is a great idea, and to help the cause, if you've downloaded the ebook version of my book, Ask Dr. Eldritch Volume #1 Are Aliens Eating My Crackers?, I'll send you a FREE 4"x6" insert card of the cover! I'll even SIGN it for you, if you like, also for FREE! Just send an email and ask for the Are Aliens Eating My Crackers? cover. You will have to give me an address to mail it to (anywhere in the US, and any country where sending such things is not prohibited). I'll autograph the card, too, unless you ask me not to.
