My sincere thanks to everyone for making the Book Bomb Day for my latest book, Founders: A Novel of the Coming Collapse such a success. The book peaked at #4 overall, and #1 in the Action & Adventure category. I hope that you enjoy reading it.
Here are some some booksellers that stock Founders (in alphabetical order–I’m not stating any preference, folks–feel free to order based on the best price, or from your favorite seller.):
Barnes & Noble
Safecastle. (Their Buyer’s Club price is lower than Amazon’s.)
September 26th is the birthday of the late Jack LaLanne. (Born 1914, died January 23, 2011.) What a guy. He only stood 5′ 7″ but he was a very big man, in my estimation.
