    update to April 2nd post….I GOT IT!!!!

    I called Borders again on the 3rd and they said they had it, so on the 4th, I walked in, stopped just inside the door and slowly looked, starting on my right, around the front of the store.  Then straight ahead, right in the front, and in the exact middle of the table,  There it was!!  That cover was looking right at me!! and I swear, there was a light shining right down on it so it had a kind of glow that no other book on that table could compete with.  AHHHHH it was really a standout on that table.  I also recieved my postcards stickers and tattoos, (my 85 yearold Dad is thinking about one of those tattoos), and they look fantastic!!  I’m very happy. Laughing

    That promo is AWESOME

    Man, this is just amazing.

    Scott is proving that with hard work, determination and a megalomaniacal streak the width of Rosie O’Donnell, you CAN make your dreams and aspirations a reality.

    Thank you Scott … for your imagination, for your stories, and for proving that the American Dream is still alive if you have an idea and the will and perserverance to follow it.

    BRAVO, and may this be but the tip of the iceberg.

    I think what I typed is was "You will feel the power of Sigler!  The tanks will roll!  The Sky will fall!  You will all die!"

    or something like that…   I did like ‘nauseated to the force of Sigler’ though…

    Here is what happens when you untranslate it 🙂

    You will be nauseated to the force of Sigler! The tanks will roll. The sky will fall! You all the dice! Like I said, not perfect, but it gets the point across.

    I call pc’s stupid machines, they only do EXACTLY what you tell it to do. probelms occur when you tell it do something that conflicts with something it is already doing (usually something you already told it to do). okok, enough of the techtard remediation class. 🙂 (don’t hate because i am beautiful, be like mumo00 and hate me because i am smart and can use a pc).

    No, not "holla," I mean "Hola!" As in, I’m American, isn’t that Spanish for "hello?" Blame my educational system if I’m wrong. Thanks for carrying the Sigler flag in Mexico, General Siglerisimo will be in contact with you in the future about leading the attack south of the Rio Grande. Sadly, Mexico must also fall to the will of Siglerism.

    Exxxxcellent …

    Way to spread the stuff in schools. I love it. Get all them childrens addicted to the Junk! Thanks!

  19. gonzalor

    I have my copy too!!

    Today I received my copy from Amazon… I could not buy it directly in a bookstore but I’m sure I’m the first one here in Mexico to have it!! (yeap…that’s right… here you have loyal junkies too!!)

    Speaking of Mexico, …you really let it have it to the poor Mexican!! first getting raped by some horny whale and then been eaten by those fk kids…!!

    Anyway, love your novels…you really kick ass…!!

    Ready to help you take over the world.

    Stopped into the one chapters that had copies today and took a picture with my phone. Right before not knowing I had to actually click "Save" for it to save the picture…

    At least I got the first copy of Infected in the City!

    No sig today. Sig tomorrow. Sig always tomorrow.

    Ft Walton Beach Books

    Late post…  I went to the local Books-a-Million yesterday morning.  They had six copies of Infected, but hadn’t put any on the shelf yet.  I told them "I’ll wait."  Minutes later some guy brought them out on a cart and handed me one.  I bought a copy.  Later that day, my wife (also an OJ) bought three more to give to friends.  I don’t know what’s on the shelf today, but if any of you Junkies are in Fort Walton Beach, Florida… you know what to do.  Go and buy.  If they’re sold out, pester the hell out of them for more.

  22. SynapticJam

    We have seen a lot of problems with Borders

    Shame you don’t have another supplier close by…

  24. ogreoregon

    I still have to wait…AAARRRRGH!!!

    Borders here won’t have the books for about a week yet, she said they are in transit. I want the experience of walking in and seeing all the books on the table… all those wonderful and creepy eyes.  when I called them to check on the time frame she said they have ten on order plus mine, I can’t wait!!!

    He lives!

    Had several of us worried (and checking Amazon.com 20 times a day or more yesterday). Swamped the FDO with tons of updates on Twitter. Scott will be giving updates throughout his book tour, and I’ll have them in the Astral Audio Experience podcast feed. Thought I should throw out that shameless plug.

  29. rwaters73

    First one in the store!!!

    On the 59th anniversary of Siglerism, I picked up my opening day copy of Infected at a B&N that had the GAUL to put a Sigler novel on the bottom shelf!

  30. Persian

    What a Pity …!!!

    I live in IRan where is in ban these days, so I can’t get a copy of the book which I really like to have it :(. ‘Cause here is no Amazon delivery in IRan…

    Anyway, I am reading its pdf format, and I am really enjoying it.

    Well done Scott.

  31. Mcarta

    Got my first book of Infected at MBTB in Houston, Im number 10 in line. Still checking the mail box for my copy from Amzn.

    None I could find downtown Vancouver BC

    No books at any of the Vancouver BC (thats Canada) stores I went to, one ordered 12, but they were still ‘coming’ and likely to arrive ‘Any Day Now’ ie they will get there when they get there.

  34. Nelzone

    Happy Sigler Day Everyone!

     Got mine at a Borders in Lakewood, CO.They had a short stack on the 2nd of 2 New Release table in the front of the Store. Sounds like things are going as planned.

    Go Team Junkie.

    Congrats Scott.

  35. Wendell

    Eye appealing

    Wow and wow and wow over at strangerthings.tv,  OUTSTANDING!  I picked up my copy from traditional book store (Borders) today, oh and did a little reshelving while I was there to make the book more "eye" appealing for the Overlord (pics uploaded).  Have another copy on the way from Amazon to boot.

    That’s Crazy!

    The B&N in Huntersville, NC had them out on a table in the front of the store.
    While it was slightly off to the right of the main doors (not the table directly in front)
    it was there with the cover staring right at you.  It also had the lowest stack (in #’s).

  42. SynapticJam

    At least you guys had a table…

    Every place I’ve been they’ve been buried on a back shelf, if they even had it yet…  So I felt obliged to put it on the new release table myself!

  43. realmaxq

    First Copy out the door in Dewitt NY

    Stopped by the B&N, and actually got a copy off of the cart – not even out on the table yet.

    They were just stocking the table at lunch time.

    Great Vid!

    I love it! I have to admit that I have been watching Infected climb the chart on Amazon all day. I ordered a few more copies (I keep thinking of more people to give them to) and my husband has stopped by a store to pick one up today. The world domination begins!!!!

  47. Kurt_eh

    Calgary bookstores need some discipline!

    Went to 2 different downtown bookstores today and neither of them had it!  Must be sold out.  

    Amazon has it #1 in Horror, 18 in Thriller and around 200 over all right now! 

    No sig today. Sig tomorrow. Sig always tomorrow.

  48. slakk


    Awesome video!!!  That was great, all the way to the end!  
    Things finally slowed down at work so I could run out and get the book.
    There were 2 of them left on the table, from a stack of about six (I would guess).

    Totally Awesome!

    Much more awsome than amazon.com moving my infected preorders to amazon.co.uk and now I wont get my books until May!!I try to be a good junkie, a loyal Junkie…but sometimes the world makes it hard 🙁

     EDIT: All fixed. Had to cancel the preorders on amazon.co.uk and just order two copies on amazon.com. Hurrah! My books will be shipped tomorrow… thank goodness, I’d hate to be late for the global takeover 🙂 

  57. JP

    It Begins…

    When I checked at 6:30 this morning, Amazon.com’s stats for Infected showed it at #372 overall; #2 in Horror in the US; and #28 in Thrillers.  And I’m sure It’ll only get BETTER!  It should be a great day for you today, Sig.  A great day…

    YouTube bandwidth?

    I hadn’t thought of that!  But, according to @maebreakall it’s an issue that they are aware of and working on.  I hope that  I get to see the vid before I have the book in hand tomorrow morning, though!

    I have been WAITING to see this, ever since I heard about it and saw the teaser, and now that its up I immediately click play and VIDEO LONGER AVAILABLE!!!!!  Its barely been up what the hell?  Did Youtube yank it before they felt the might of the OJ’s worried they would run out of bandwidth or something?  ACK!!
