Darwin's Paradox by Nina Munteanu

Well, it's Friday again and time for my Friday Feature. First of all, a little sharing...Folks, my book, Darwin's Paradox will be arriving at bookstores all over the world on November 15th, less than two weeks from now and I can tell you that I am unabashedly excited by it. Besides Amazon (e.g., in the U.S.: http://www.amazon.com/; in Canada: http://www.amazon.ca/; in the U.K.: http://www.amazon.co.uk/; in Germany: http://www.amazon.de/; in France: www.amazon.fr/; in Japan: http://www.amazon.jp/) where Darwin's Paradox is available for pre-order, the book can be found throughout North America (both at stores and through their online webstores) at:


You can also buy or order the book at Target (www.target.com), one of the major department stores in the U.S. as well as India and Malaysia, Wallmart, or purchase it online at Buy.com, another major retail store.

And those are only the ones I know about (the writer tends to know paltry little when it comes to publishery stuff). If you've enjoyed my blog articles and short stories and enjoy thoughtful and provative science fiction (with a kicking plot) and are inclined to purchase Darwin's Paradox, then here are a few things that I unabashedly, shamelessly exhort you, dear reader, to do:


  • If purchasing through Amazon, purchase my book on the day of release (November 15, 2007) to drive sales that day into such significant figures to make my book noticeable on the Amazon radar (which will place the book so that more people will see it)

  • go to your local bookstore and ask them to order Darwin's Paradox

And if you're interested in an audiobook (with voice artist Heather Dugan) we'll be arranging that too, hopefully.

So, today's Friday Feature, is run by the incredibly talented and energetic Karen Mason and dedicated to my book, "Darwin's Paradox". And through no major stretch of the imagination, it's also called "Darwin's Paradox".

What wonderful items can you find there? Well, here are a few juicy bits:


  • Chapters One through Thirteen of the book (available in eight different languages: French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Chinese)

  • podcasts of chapters One to Thirteen (so far) done by voice artist Heather Dugan

  • schedule of my appearances (including conventions and booktours)

  • select interviews

  • writing tips

  • media kit (including press release, media material, etc.)

I am so indebted to Karen for tirelessly running this site and for her astute advice on blogging, internet navigation, media design, logic, human behaviour (remember, I'm an alien) and good wine.

Congrats! I will have to read it!

But that's also really great cover art, so judging a book by it's cover you already have a win.

Thanks, Erik! The art work was done by Tomislav Tikulin in Zagreb! He does great art!

WOOWOO!

Amazon.ca says it's available Nov. 5th. Typo?

sfgirl said...

Might be. It was never intended to be available on that day. But I've seen availability dates that range from November 1 to November 20! Go figure! My publisher said to me, when I asked her about it: "It's the publishing industry...Stuff happens." Yup! Stuff sure happens!
