It's Election Day! That magical time of year when people of all socioeconomic strata from across the United States come together in vague agreement that despite all the shortcomings of our system of both governance and election, hey, it beats worshipping the sun or whatever.
So get out there and vote! Please, for the love of everything, vote. I know my exhortation to do so isn't going to change your mind, but maybe mine will be the fifteenth or the sixteenth you've seen today, and the Katy Perry Theory will kick in and you'll just HAVE to go through with it.
And while we're talking about voting, on a slightly lighter and more self-serving note, the Goodreads elections are taking place now. During this first round, write-ins are allowed, and while I have no illusions about my chances of either of the books I had published in 2014 making it into the next round, a guy can dream, can't he? So, just as a reminder, if you have a Goodreads account you can vote for:
BILLY AND THE CLONEASAURUS (June, 2014) in the Science Fiction category
AT HELL'S GATES (September, 2014) in the Horror category
And you can write in EITHER for the general Fiction category.
All my other category votes are still uncast, so if you're an author with a book to sell or a reader with a favorite to gush over, go ahead and pitch me your 2014 favorites in the comments below!
