Avatar of Shawn Laing

My girlfriend’s been expressing interest in reading something by Scott and I think that she might buy a copy of NOCTURNAL because I’m going to have a character named after me in it. It’s a small thing I’ve done for the cause, but it beats doing nothing.

Soon to be starring in NOCTURNAL by Scott Sigler. The autograph line starts to the right.

Avatar of Alex Miller

Like some kind of cult we listen to the same chapters on our i-pods while doing workouts and talk aboutr it

Very funny, Scotty. Now beam down my clothes

Oatmeal has some of *the best* web comics.

<soapbox> Actually, I don’t really care about misspellings in other people’s posts. I used to misspell the word “definitely” all the time… especially in these forums … and it was until sadock’s repeated public shamings that I realized I was spelling it wrong.

I’ll admit it, when I post in comments I often don’t do spell check and if I post from work my poor IE6 version browser doesn’t have it incorporated. Long way of saying I’m lazy when it comes to spelling in a comment. And…. it’s ok. For me it’s laziness, but who knows why another person may be mispelling — English as a second language, learning disabilities, etc. I’ll take the participation of someone posting over correct spelling any day. Correct spelling and grammar are hardly worth anything if people don’t particpate to begin with…all imho, of course </end soapbox>

    Since I introduced you to Sigler —> you introduced your wife to Sigler —> she introduced her friends, that means I get half junkie points! Without me it just ain’t happening. Here is the math two full junkie points for your wife, one full junkie point for you (being one removed from the intro, half each), and half a point for me (two removed from the intro) Gotta love the new junkie math!

    Every month a friend and I have a “Book Day” where we go around to various bookstores and look for great books. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve systematically over the course of ten minutes or so replaced entire displays with Sigler’s fiction. Right after Infected came out was the first time I tried this, and it is a startling experience walking into a bookstore to see a wall of eyes staring at you.

    Again this being Infected era, I also had a few dozen leaflets that I convinced local bands to stick inside their CD cases.

    What about some GFL logo temporary tattoos for those of us who don’t do needles? I did a quick search and found one site that said 1,000 custom temp tats for $89. Wuold be totally cool for Dragon*Con and BaltiCon next year to have hundreds of the faithful wearing a Krackens logo.. just a thought. I’m sure the Gutter Sistren would do a great job of strategically placing said tats to get the most attention. Surprised

    I wonder how much for a Krackens ‘tramp stamp’ sized tatoo… Cousin Frankie would like that, you betcha!

    got tired of my roommate making fun of the fact that I have read The Starter 3 times now…and because my computer is being retarded and not allowing me to reinstall iTunes, I bought The Rookie, and when it arrived today, shoved it into his hands, and told him to get reading. Told him if he made fun of me again before he finished the book, I was fully comfortable with punching him in the balls. He’s only about 50 pages in…and already says he doesn’t want to put it down. lol.

    That’s what I get for slacking on the boards… anyway I told just about everyone I know about the FDO and recommended to lots of people at D*C to go to his panels. The Big Guy and I were wearing Krackens gear and Eddie McClintock (Warehouse 13) asked about it and we told him how great the books are…he’s a bit on the small side to play Scary Perry or Quentin Barnes, but if it gets someone in Hollywood interested…

    And I gave my last paperback version of Infected to my Boot Camp trainer to read and pass on. Guess I’ll need to get a new one. I’ve given away at least 5 copies now and I know that there have been several converts to Junki-ism.

Uh, anyway, I got home and there were two packages waiting for me: My new Ancestor tee (CafePress will full fuckage) and Property of Krakens t-shirt. Tomorrow I will be wearing the Krakens shirt to volleyball.

    I also got a co-worker to start listening to Infected. So far he has only listened to the first chapter (had some technical difficulties) but its cliffhanger left him wondering WTF?! Hopefully tomorrow he’ll have more to report.

    I recently included a link to the first copy of my science-fiction e-zine in an Ebert Club comment.

    The moderator liked it enough to put it into issue #5 of the club newsletter.

    Page 32 contains a section called “Free Science Fiction for Your iPod or Computer”. The Rookie, 7th Son: Descent, and Crescent are all pimped in that section.

    I would have pimped The Starter, but I wrote UUP Issue#1 in December 2009.

    Here’s a link to the e-zine:

    ……..that decision for us.

    Yes, Junkies, ANCESTOR promo tees are now available in black (and other dark colors) thanks to the Gutter Mistress being monochrome. TwoWire busted his ass and I piped up with an occasional piece of advice when he needed it. Please remember that Scott, A, and I do not want you buying any of these promo tees until after you’ve alloted sufficient funds to purchase a copy of ANCESTOR for everyone in your family and all of your friends. The goal here is to sell books, not shirts. If you’ve got some extra $$$ after you buy books to buy a shirt and help sell more books, great. Otherwise, please use your cash to buy copies of ANCESTOR itself.

    That being said, here’s what brother TwoWire created over at Zazzle. Yes, they’re obscenely priced. That’s why we didn’t do black/dark tees initially:

    I’m going to hold off and see what I think of those before investing in Earthcore.

    Had to buy a second copy at that price. Wasn’t too much above cover price if I remember correctly. Couldn’t find a list price on the book itself. Think they went for $14.95

    Two of my co-workers asked if I was going to put it up on e-bay and I said “Hell no!”

    It may be nothing more than a bookshelf decoration (unless I learn German that is) but its a sweet looking bookshelf decoration and it’s all mine!!!

    I kept seeing it for those prices too. Was totally stoked when I saw it last night!

    I did tell everyone I know that the FDO is so gosh darn awesome I bought one of his books in German. He’s that worth it! Of course it has nothing to be with my being a freakin’ idiot who can’t read the whole description on Amazon before purchasing… Yeah… Anyway….

    I was stoked when I found ANCESTOR in new condition for $22. Grabbed it as an investment. Normally ANCESTOR runs ~$40-50 and EARTHCORE runs ~$60-90.

    My mom has this killer computerized embroidery machine. I just finished digitizing the Krakens logo. I’m going to see how it comes out when I go visit this weekend. I’ll post a picture of the finished product if it works.

    I can save it in various formats:

    Babylock .BLK, Babylock/Brother .PES, Viking .HUS, Singer . XXX (triple -X! W00t) and a couple of others.

    Send me a PM if you want a copy of the file. Remember, this is for entertainment purposes only, no gambling or selling them (unless you give the FDO his cut).

    Some of you may remember the F**K YEAH! blog post for Gun Jutsu.

    The FDOs post was unexpected and very generous and still produces traffic to the site. In an effort to show my thanks, I posted an abreviated history of how Scott influenced the establishment of my web site. I also linked to his home page and some of his work on the thank you page: http://www.gun-jutsu-training.com/sigler.html

    I think Scott helps me more than I help him but, this is part of my effort.

    I also indoctrinated my kids!

    Pushing the dirty smack on everyone I know, including collegues, family and friends. Getting junior (and myself of course) a dedicated hardback (The Rookie) for Christmas (to go w. the other Sigler hardbacks on the shelf) and compiling the Scott Sigler Christmas DVD with all his stories for select Christmas presents.

    In fact I evangelize so much that my wife got me a specially dedicated iPod for Christmas – it’s the perfect conversation piece – check it out :-)

    I have a plethora of Sigler Swag from EARTHCORE, ANCESTOR, INFECTION and THE ROOKIE. I don’t *think* I have any apparel from CONTAGIOUS or NOCTURNAL. I might be forgetting something. I need to take a new pic of current swag fairly soon. Last one is from January 2009. And my Sigler Horde is constantly expanding.

    I always buy an extra copy of everything for my best friend. It’s unlikelt that he’d buy them on his own so it gives me an excuse to support the FDO and expose my friend to Scott’s work at the same time. I went a bit psycho with CONTAGIOUS. Think I purchased 5 or 6 copies for miscellaneous friends and family members. I bought a copy of THE ROOKIE for my parents since I was in it and they loved it! I’ll probably get them a copy of THE STARTER for Christmas 2010.

    The Starter Banner, the Krakens poster and snippets of his books as my status on FB, I downloaded the widget, I gave the Sigler DVD to some friends for X-mas and I’m constantly talking Sigler and his books up to my friends, family and co-workers! I’ve also turned my 9 year old nephew into a Junkie. He’s read The Rookie and he’s anxiously awaiting The Starter! I won’t let him read anything else until he gets a little older though… for now he can only read Young Adult rated Sigler content! Wink

    This topic will serve as a free for all bragging forum for when folks do stuff to help in General Siglerisimo’s quest for world domination. Pretty much anything can qualify. It could be posting a blog entry about an upcoming book release, ‘forgetting’ a ripped CD/DVD of the podcasts in an airport, changing your Twitter icon, or converting your friends and family.

    You certainly don’t need to pull a TwoWire and make up ANCESTOR tee shirts to promote the book release. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, TwoWire put together some tee shirt designs to help promote ANCESTOR in our local markets. These are sold at cost to promote book sales. Neither Scott nor TwoWire is making a dime off of them. So if you’re low on cash, buy the book, not a tee shirt! Here’s the links if you want to check them out:

    http://www.cafepress.com/SCFIANCESPLAIN No txt on the fronts and wording on the back

    http://www.cafepress.com/SCFIANCENSORED The Sci-Fi Placard with the “f##K” on the front and wording from the new ANCESTOR preorder announcement on the back

    http://www.cafepress.com/No_Censoring The Sci-Fi Placard with “fuck” on the front and a different wording on the back

    http://www.cafepress.com/NewANCESTOR The new ANCESTOR cover art with the ANCESTOR preorder announcement

    Yes, Junkies, ANCESTOR promo tees are now available in black (and other dark colors) thanks to the Gutter Mistress being monochrome. TwoWire busted his ass and I piped up with an occasional piece of advice when he needed it. Please remember that Scott, A, and I do not want you buying any of these promo tees until after you’ve alloted sufficient funds to purchase a copy of ANCESTOR for everyone in your family and all of your friends. The goal here is to sell books, not shirts. If you’ve got some extra $$$ after you buy books to buy a shirt and help sell more books, great. Otherwise, please use your cash to buy copies of ANCESTOR itself.

    That being said, here’s what brother TwoWire created over at Zazzle. Yes, they’re obscenely priced. That’s why we didn’t do black/dark tees initially:

    So what have you done?
