Writers 4 Writers is featuring me today.

Today, Writers4Writers is featuring me and Nick Wilford. In case you are unaware of Writers4Writers, it is an initiative to promote authors and their books by harnessing the power of Twitter. It congregates the third Monday of every month to promote 1-3 authors. I got the email from Mary that said it was this Monday, however, so they must have just decided to do it a week early. It's all good even if there's some confusion.

If you have time, please visit the Hosts of this marketing brainchild. They are Mary Pax, Christine Rains, C.M. Brown, and Stephen Tremp.

So, if you are here for Writers4Writers, I first want to say thank you for helping to promote my book. Just copy and paste any tweet from below and send it off into the twitterverse:

Read a sample from Michael Offutt's "Slipstream." It's a sci-fi pulse pounding adventure. #YAOI #W4WS http://slckismet.blogspot.com/p/an-excerpt-from-slipstream.html

Thanks again to all the Writers4Writers promoters and organizers. This is a great program that benefits everyone. I encourage those of you who follow my blog who have not signed up, to go and visit Stephen's website now and fix that.
Because it's Veteran's Day, I also want to send a big thank you to every veteran out there. You have my profound respect, and please remember to go by your friendly neighborhood Texas Roadhouse sometime today and get your free lunch. The program is nationwide. Get some baked beans, cornbread, and fall-off-the-bone ribs. Mmmm.

Just you today, so rock on!

Suz Korb said...

I want some ribs!

J.L. Campbell said...

Hope you get some sales from this. Tweeted once already. Be back later. Good move by Texas Roadhouse for veterans.

Have a great day.

Pat Dilloway said...

I should do like Fry in Futurama and sign up for the military just to get free ribs. Though at this point I don't think they're desperate enough to take me.

Isis Rushdan said...

There's a ton of free stuff in my city for Veterans today like entry to zoo and aquarium.

Tweeting now.

Julie Flanders said...

Hi Michael .. good luck with your book ...

It's so sad about Andrew, Nick's stepson ... such a shock for the family - my heart goes out to them .. and to all who've lost, felt the remnants of war ... we are grateful for our freedom ... Hilary

Andrew Leon said...

Well, I can't twitter it, but I'll think of something else.

Catherine Stine said...

Yay, off to tweet about Slipstream now--It was a great novel!

Michael Offutt, Phantom Reader said...

My heart goes out to Andrew and the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. It hasn't been a good weekend, I think. Ah well. Still a huzzah for all of you that are part of W4WS. Thank you.

Stephen Tremp said...

Good luck Michael with your books!

Christine Rains said...

Tweeting for you! Good luck. And that's very cool about Texas Roadhouse. I had no idea they did that!

I hope Slipstream sells like crazy. Now I'm off to visit you elsewhere.

I hope you sell thousands of your books. You deserve to.
