(shameless family-member promotion commencing)
Okay, so I think this is the right place for this:

My dad has a new novel coming out.

It's the first in a series he's been working on for essentially my entire life, and he finally got a publisher for the first three in the series, but unfortunately they're not doing very much to promote it. I would be forever grateful if you guys would give it a read, and if you like it, suggest it to your friends. There are a few more books that he has planned / partially written, but it's unlikely that they'll make it to print if this one doesn't do reasonably well.

Wish my particular work community was more literacy-friendly...then I could suggest our Adult Services department purchase it for the collection. But, I'll do my best to spread the word.

Good luck to your dad!

Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler is amazing. Read it. :stamp:
"when a school counselor called her in to tell her that the school administration was growing concerned about the fact that Petra seemed to be associating with the antisocial element in the school, she knew that she was truly at home in Maralik."
