I am sooo looking forward to it!
This will be the first FDO book I’ve read before listening to.
Maybe I ‘ll get it in time for the Brooklyn date.
As far as I know, you’re the only Junkie who’s won one. Many folks purchased AREs early on before that got totally out of hand, but you’re the first I know of who’s gotten one via luck of the draw. Frakkin’ cherish that puppy, man.
I just got an email from Goodreads:
“You are one of our First Reads lucky winners! You will soon receive a free copy of Alive (The Generations Trilogy, #1) in the mail. Please allow a few weeks for shipping.”
Super Mega Awesome!
My surgery this morning went better than I expected and all of the cutting is now finished. I’m quite relieved about that. The medical staff said I should expect the pain to peak in 3-4 days, which surprised me. I figured it’d be at its worst tomorrow morning and then improve from there. The doctor did give me Dilaudid for pain management and I can also take OTC meds since hydromorphone doesn’t have any acetaminophen in it.
I come back to Hell in a couple weeks for a follow up check-up and will probably get a better idea of how I’m doing after I see the doctor(s) then. My best guess at this point regarding SiglerFest 2K15 is 70/30 in favor of my attending. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing all of my fellow Crack Addicts again and downing a few Plaid Hippos™
Healing Junkie Vibes are en route, @sadock. Best of luck and skill in your surgery. Believe it or not, I was JUST thinking about this this morning, wondering when that surgery was happening. Chalk it up to Cosmic Karma! Best wishes for a speedy recovery so we can see you at SiglerFest!
@Sadock Good luck, my friend. We’re pulling for a speedy recovery.
Sending my thoughts and positive Junkie vibes, Arioch. Good luck!
I’ll be driving down to Hell (aka Phoenix) later today for what I hope will be my last surgery for quite some time. If all goes well and I recover quickly, I may even see some of you at SiglerFest 2K15. If you are so inclined, please send some positive energy towards central AZ ~0730-1130 CST tomorrow.
If you’re a Junkie and also have a Goodreads account, you can help promote Alive by logging into that and voting up some of the 5-star reviews of Alive over there. All you have to do is find a few you want to vote for and hit the “like” button. Goodreads ranks/displays them by how many likes each review receives. At present, the top reviews are both 1-star.
Goodreads is a bit odd, though. It only shows you your friends reviews once you’re logged in. If you want to see an accurate representation of *all* the reviews, look at Alive when you’re logged out. You may also find some fellow readers with similar tastes worth being friends with. I know I did.
So the official answer (from episode 39 of The Champion) is “we don’t know”. =)
When the forum was updated a few years ago, that was something that couldn’t be carried over right away. The original plan was to reinstate them, but I think that just got pushed to the wayside with all the other important stuff and the fact that the forums aren’t incredibly active anyway. =p
Maybe around football season of 2016? (I think it’s this year that’s being skipped, right?) I don’t want to say anything for sure because I know Sigler takes on a lot of projects and I don’t believe I’ve heard a commitment to the next GFL book in 2016 anywhere.
Excuse me if any of this info is incorrect! I know the year that was being skipped was discussed in some episode I recently listened to, but I don’t have the motivation to figure out which ep that was to double check. =p
