Book Bomb for "Pack Dynamics" today!

The handsome and hard-working Larry Correia is book bombing my novel today. In case you don't know what this means, it's that we all buy a book on the same day, send it flying up the Amazon charts, and do fun things with their algorithms. If you buy other urban fantasy with it, that gets it on genre-appropriate rec lists. If you buy weird things with it, that gets it on ... weird rec lists.

Here is a handy link whereby you can buy it! Lookit that cover, you guys, I'm still in awe.

There's all kinds of spiffy urban fantasy out there. In the interests of paying it forward, I'll list some of my favorite authors, and you should definitely check out their stuff:
Jim Butcher (duh)
Larry Correia (duh)
Carrie Vaughn
Patricia Briggs
Diana Pharaoh Francis
Rob Thurman
Kevin Hearne
Anton Strout
ML Brennan (I just got into the Generation V novels, and they are a ton of fun)
PN Elrod
Charlaine Harris

Those are off the top of my head right now, and people I've personally read, though I've got people like Quincy Adams, Josh Vogt, and Ramon Terrell on my list--I shared the WordFire booth with them at SLComicCon, and they're awesome. Feel free to leave your own recs in the comments!

And while you're at it, you should pre-order Larry's forthcoming epic fantasy novel "Son of the Black Sword."

Many, many thanks to all the wonderful people at WordFire who made this possible. Kevin J. Anderson, who rushed production (but didn't skimp) when I mentioned I would like to be able to hand a copy of the book to Jim Butcher; Peter Wacks, who took my pitch and has been enormously helpful in helping me figure out where to go next; Emma Michaels, who designed my amazing cover; and Bryan Thomas Schmidt, who took a novel I wrote six years ago and made it suck far less.

And an extra special thanks to Larry, who is amazeballs. <3
