Rampant Novella Distribution Expands

Firstly, thank you all so much for all the love you've been showing my novella Rampant! You've been fantastic! If you know of someone who would also enjoy it, please consider getting them a copy as a gift!

Some things have shifted around recently for Rampant, and the distribution in North America has expanded. It is now significantly easier for book stores to carry it! Here's the thing, just because they can, doesn't mean they will. That is, unless people go to their favorite bookstore and ask for it. If you don't own Rampant and would like to get it, you can certainly purchase it online, it's available on Amazon and SourcePointPress.com and others, but please consider going to your local bookstore, big or small, and asking for them to get it in for you. The specific benefits to this are two-fold. 1.) You are now helping to support a book store as well! 2.) It helps me also, because sometimes when a store gets a request for a title they're not currently carrying, they will often order 1 or 2 extras at the same time, as "shelf copies" that they will put out in the store. This is a great way for new people to discover it! When asking for them to get it in, you can even suggest that they consider ordering more copies for the store shelves.  This would mean the absolute world to me, as my own reach to introduce the book to new people only goes so far.

Additionally, your reviews on Amazon.com, Goodreads, and other places are especially helpful. They allow people to get a feel for the book from an unbiased point of view, which could really help them decide if the book is something they'd enjoy. Thank you all so much for the praise you've been giving it in reviews. I read every single one and they're very appreciated.
Lastly: If you are someone who really enjoyed Rampant, and you'd like to support it further, please know that Rampant t-shirts are available at the Source Point Press web store! If you send me a picture of you wearing a Rampant t-shirt, or if you visit me at a convention and are wearing it, I will do a free werewolf sketch for you to show my gratitude!
 Thank you all for everything! Your support allows me to continue creating things and working in the wonderful world of books and comics.  <3 -="" josh="" p="">
