Gnomevicious Tweets!! WELL WELL WELL, it appears my ultra-nemesis, the evil garden warrior known only as Gnomevicious, is tweeting now as of yesterday. I would suggest everyone follow him on Twitter just to keep track of his evil whereabouts. Follow him here: @gnomevicious.
In Good Company With Other Humor Books: Some good news this week concerning the gnome book sales. It continued to be in top 10 of humor books nationwide, according to Nielsen BookScan, placing it alongside books such as Jon Stewart's America and Chelsea Handler's books. Very exciting! And if you haven't picked up the book yet, grab How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack on Amazon now! It makes a nice coffee table book, stocking stuffer, and general life survival guide. If you've already ordered a copy or picked one up, you have my sincere thanks.
Interviews & Coverage: The book got a mention in The Sacramento Bee this week, which was unexpected and very cool. Other than that, here are some things to report:
- The Huffington Post wrote my publicist and asked me for a guest column (based on my book), which was a wonderful surprise! I turned in the column yesterday and am unsure exactly when it runs, but I will let you know.
- A Hocking Hill's Garden is a gardening website that did a wonderful feature on the book.
- WVXU, Cincinnati's NPR station, interviewed me and posted the podcast/MP3 online here. We talked gnomes, gnomenclature, Books by the Banks, and more.
- Davis Life Magazine (of Davis, CA) featured my book online on the publication website.
