First off, I need to thank everyone who purchased a copy of Random Realities from Amazon or Barnes and Noble -- you are all superlatively tasteful people and your names will live on forever in the hearts of right-thinking persons.
Better yet, people who have bought the book are recommending it to their friends, posting about it on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LJ and other social media sites, and generally being the hardworking PR team that I can't afford. See, when you self-publish works like this, word-of-mouth advertising is an absolute godsend -- unless your last name is Gaiman or Rowling, you simply can't sell without it. So a second thank you goes out to everyone who's posted about RR, or just mentioned it to someone in passing -- seriously, you people are the best.
And finally, a HUGE thank you goes out to my lovely, LOVELY fellow podcasters Arthur and Big Fatty for posting about my book and R.J. Dennis's short story on their respective shows. R.J. Dennis, by the way, is a incredibly nifty writer as well as a cohost of A Cup of Fresh Hell Served With a Side of Heaven, and his story "Blood of Prey," a delightfully creepy tale about four para-normally gifted teens battling a soul-stealing preacher, is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords for 99 cents. You won't get better entertainment value!
