roaring dragon, spore, monster friday
That wacky John Warner, author of ENCYCLOPEDIA BROWN AND THE MYSTERIOUS PRESIDENCY OF GEORGE W. BUSH (illustrated by Lea Hernandez) has declared that today, MONDAY AUGUST 12, IS EBATMPOCWB PRE-ORDER DAY.

EDIT: Rankings got as high as 600-something, and are at 698 now. Not bad!

EDIT: John got interviewed at Comedy Central: http://ccinsider.comedycentral.com/cc_insider/2006/08/interview_john_.html
He doesn't mention me, unless you take the first letter of each sentence of his answers, which spell out "I DNIT IIT LI NI STB AII," clearly stating his loooove for the eighteen highlarious illuminations I did for the book, and praising my brilliance in caricaturing Bill O'Reilly.

EDIT: Rankings have jumped from 250,000-something to 2,676! KEEP PRE-ODERING!

Instructions follow, including a link to a PDF of the Book Expo America freebie. The BEA freebie includes a story not in EBATMPOCWB, in which John flings a banjo at the broad side of a barn and also makes fun of hobbyist drug addict and Oprah pisser-offer (for being so, you know, FAKE) James Frey.

Follow these instructions so I get to illustrate another book by John, as I expect him to repay my loyalty handsomely.

"Alrighty! Thus far my campaign to have people NOT pre-order my forthcoming
book, "Encyclopedia Brown and the Mysterious Presidency of George W. Bush"
is going great as my Amazon ranking at this moment is a healthy, 205,173,
coming in just behind Earnest A. Tuxtwelder¹s "Fundamentals of Field Hockey
Strategy."

But the time has come - my friends, my family, and people with whom I¹ve
exchanged at least a couple of pleasant emails - to unleash the tsunami that
is your pent up desire to own this book.

Today is the official "pre-order Encyclopedia Brown and the Mysterious
Presidency of George W. Bush" day.

PRE-ORDER LINKY! CLICK ME! CLICK ME!*

If you¹re unsure of whether or not you should pre-order the book, let me
remind you of a few things.

1. You can download a free sample to decide for yourself whether not this is
a book for you.

http://www.fwpublications.com/downloads/EB_BLAD.pdf

2. The book won¹t actually be available for another month, which means you
can always cancel should you change your mind.

3. I will be blogging about the changes in my Amazon ranking throughout the
day at Encyclopedia Brown's MySpace blog (www.myspace.com/jdwarner), in an attempt to expose the Amazon
rankings for the fraud they are. (Please note that if "Encyclopedia Brown
and the Mysterious Presidency of George W. Bush" reaches the top 1000, the
Amazon rankings are not "fraudulent," but instead a leading indicator of the
top books in the country.)

I pledge that I shall not bother you again with this shameless
self-promotion nonsense. If there¹s any way I can help any of you, please
let me know, just not today, because I have to concentrate on checking my
Amazon ranking."

Okay, that pledge there, that's JOHN'S pledge, not Lea's.

You have your orders. Away my flying monkeys! Go!

* My edit. John doesn't use the word "linky," ever.

I am embarrassed to say that while I did receive my promo booklet thingy from him it's still sitting on my desk awaiting my attention. But, uh, I have the book wishlisted! I promoted it on my podcast! C'mon!

I'll include it in my next order I'm sure.

P. S. Since I can't buy nothin' right now, if I promote this in my LJ, can I also give the free sample link, or no?

I must get this for the hubby! Maybe a copy for his brother on the other side of the continent, too.
