"Furry Nation" publication date rapidly approaching!

WAY older than Mr. Black
Furry Nation, my history of the fandom will be published as a Nook/Kindle eBook on September 10, then as a paperback on October 10.

I've been working on this sucker on and off since 2008, give or take a year. Being a "greymuzzle" I was lucky enough to stumble into the fandom in 1988 when someone sent me an invite to a "furry party" at a Philadelphia sci-fi convention. I watched furry fandom grow from a dozen people in a hotel room to 7,000 at a convention & since I'm a pretty good writer decided to tell the story best I could. If you're interested, it has a website with a lot more info: furrynation.com

Its not the human race, its just the human race
Congrats! As someone who despises writing, I commend you for finishing an entire book.

I'm interested in getting a copy. I've been lurking in the background of furry fandom for about 15 years

I'm not sure how much exposure it's going to get in bookstores, but you can order it online via its website.

It wasn't easy; I was fighting a serious urge to procrastinate, but once my agent found a publisher (and it took quite a while to find the agent) I suddenly had a deadline, which is a definite cure for procrastination.

As always, advertise in all the specialty groups that it applies to, and get it on Amazon as fast as possible in digital as well. The more exposure it gets, the more word of mouth works.

I'm actually very interested in reading this! Best of luck with it, hope it sells well
 
Saw a review from Kothorix via his Youtube site a few days ago.
Have this book on my 'Wish List' cart and will order next month as a personal Xmas gift.
Thanks for the heads-up about its availability!

Hey JoeStrike
Can we signal-boost this a bit, can I write a short paragraph about the book and a cover shot in my furry newsletter? If so I'd be very happy to do it, just need some words and a reasonable cover shot resolution.

It's fine with me, and I'm sure the publisher wouldn't mind either. The attached cover should work for you, it's directly from their website.

Sure will do. I can also send you the e-mail address we use internally so we can send you a proof to check to make sure you're happy with what we wrote.
