If you are into #steampunk   #wwi   #history  and even #zombies  you will really love The Peacemakers - plus it's about the best-written work of fiction I've read, which certainly helps. Through Memorial Day the book's proceeds will all be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. Give it a chance- you won't regret it!

"Do you think I'm a coward?" I asked my grandfather on the way back to the car. "For not having gone with them?"

The thought had haunted me ever since Jack and Trip had asked me to enlist with them. I had refused, but only partly out of fear of the effect my running off to war would have on my grandparents. Truth is that I didn't want to die in europe fighting someone else's war. Hell, I didn't want to die at all."

From The Peacemakers, by Olivier Blanchard

This Memorial Day we mark the #WWICentenary  and remember many other veterans who gave their lives in combat despite fear and dread. As we think about those real-life men it's a great time to enjoy the relative peace and freedom we have here in the US. The Peacemakers is more than a fitting match for this coming weekend. Consider buying it (it will download right away to your Kindle) and giving it a read.

Today is Saturday. Are you wishing you had a really engaging book to read but you just don't have one at your fingertips? As it happens, I know of a book that you can download to your Kindle right now (how's that for instant gratification?). The book is called The Peacemakers and it is the first in a trilogy by +Olivier Blanchard  called The Nemesis Engines. 

How do I know you'll like this book? Well first of all, 11 other people have posted reviews of the book on Amazon, so you don't have to take my word for it. But how do I know YOU will like it?

Do you like characters who bring you into their lives? Who become real? Whose struggles actually begin to stress you out? You'll love this book.

Do you love #romance and #adventure books? There are those elements here.

Do you love #history? Yep. Especially #wordlwarone  history.

And finally, if you are a #steampunk  fan, you'll love this book. 

Check it out - read the reviews, check out a few pages. Give it a try. You'll love it :)

There is an excellent new book out (the first of a trilogy) that I think you all would really enjoy. It's definitely steampunk but also plays with adventure and romance. It's hard to believe it's a debut effort. It's available for Kindle for now but eventually will be accessible via other means too. I've read it - twice. It's that good.

I think Steampunk itself is a bit of adventure & romance...perfect blend ツ

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Together with +Geoff Livingston  & +Olivier Blanchard  I am fundraising for a prevention chat service called ImAlive. The organization wants to expand their services in 2014 to 24/7 coverage, but they need our help. 

Our team is trying to raise $10,000 today. We only have 9 hours left. All we need is 959 people to donate $10 - that's 2 Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and it's such a good cause. A donation of $25 can help offer 9 people a crisis session.

Please donate, or if you can't do that right now, help us spread the word.

Starting today and through Memorial Day, Olivier Blanchard will be donating all sales to the Wounded Warrior Project. How amazing is that? If you've been waffling on trying out this book, now is most definitely the time. http://amzn.to/P3n1AA

I wrote up a review of The Peacemakers, debut fiction novel by +Olivier Blanchard (only you'd never know it was a debut effort). I thought it would be helpful to give a little more detail as to why I enjoyed this book so much. Read on! #steampun   #books   #history   #amreading

I don't know about where you are, but where I am it is dark, rainy, and kind of chilly. You know what that means? It's perfect reading weather!! I have the perfect suggestion for you - beautiful scenery in Haiti, then adventure on the rolling seas. #steampunk  fans, adventure fans, #romance fans, and fans of excellent writing - check this out!

The cat is officially out of the bag. +Erin Feldman and I are hoping to do a presentation at SXSW in 2014, and we need YOUR help to spread the word and get the votes coming in (that starts on Monday, 8/19). Here is how a fight between Erin and Puffin got the ball rolling...
