Thank you. 5K times.

With over 1.63K downloads on #iTunes and 3.5K on #Amazon, numerous reviews on stores as well as by a few well-known blogs around the world, including #Mashable, “A Day with The Woz” celebrates its 1st anniversary today.

The Buzz:
“Geek meets ubergeek” by James Smith: 

Sure, this is a puff piece, but it's free, it's fun, and I wish it had happened to me.

Waseef Akhtar, a geeky kid from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, of all places, meets Steve Wozniak and gets to talk with him for a few hours. The Woz is as gracious and gentle as his reputation would lead you to expect. He even gives Waseef his business card with his personal phone number on it -- in binary, of course. You have to admire somebody who could step away from the Steve Jobs reality distortion field and lead a sane life instead.

God willing, may Waseef be as fortunate.

Caroline B. Cooney’s Children Fiction book, Night School, has picked out my photo (http://buff.ly/1mkRHfM) as its cover art.

The children fiction is about four kids, each with their own individual problems and desires, write their names on the sheet and signs up for a class. These students discover whether the night class is a place where dreams come true—or where nightmares are made real. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Caroline B. Cooney including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

My photo (http://buff.ly/M3NBYA) makes it to the cover of Charles Cilliers’ short storybook, A Grain of Sand.

About the book:
‘On the door was a note. It said: Your mother-in-law will die on 13 December at 13:22.’ Anthony Graves returns from the Nobel Prize ceremony wealthy, praised and famous to find the chilling prediction. Graves’s prize-winning work, it seems, has been put to use by a master programmer who is using it to do more than see into the future. A fast-paced read with a surprising twist. Be prepared for serious, fast entertainment.

My photo (http://buff.ly/1nDqAb8) makes it up as the cover of Dave Renol’s novel, Blood Magic (The Science of Psionics) - Book II.
You'd never guess that Dave was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, eh. He's traveled a fair bit, but then a North Carolina gal caught his eye. Really he just wanted to get away from snow, but then a rescue Plott Hound wound him around her paw and that was it.
